What we're about
We are a group of Jin Shin Do® Bodymind Acupressure® practitioners, teachers, and students who would like to network with one another and promote Jin Shin Do® to the local community. We also welcome members who are non-Jin Shin Do® initiates who would like to know more about Jin Shin Do®.
Jin Shin Do®
"Jin Shin Do" means "The Way of the Compassionate Spirit." "Jin Shin Do® Bodymind Acupressure® uses gentle yet deep finger pressure on specific acu-points and verbal Body Focusing techniques, to help release "armoring" or chronic tension, balance the "Qi" or energy, and improve vitality. This clothes-on method helps relieve stress-and trauma-related problems. A unique synthesis of a traditional Japanese acupressure technique, classic Chinese acu-theory, Taoist philosophy, Qigong (breathing and exercise techniques), Reichian segmental theory, and principles of Eriksonian psychotherapy, it is recognized as a major form of Asian Bodywork Therapy. Originated by psychotherapist Iona Marsaa Teeguarden, Jin Shin Do® acupressure promotes a trancelike state, in which one can relax and move out of the head and into the body, accessing feelings and inner wisdom."
