The Way of the Compassionate Spirit

Jin Shin Do® Bodymind Acupressure™ utilizes gentle finger pressure applied to acupoints along the body's meridians (energy pathways).

This facilitates the release of blocked energy in the body resulting in reduced pain and discomfort, stress and tension.

Jin Shin Do helps to reestablish a harmonious bodymind connection by balancing the body's natural flow of energy.

Jin Shin Do Bodymind Acupressure was developed by Iona Marsaa Teeguarden. This unique bodymind therapy is a synthesis of:

 Japanese acupressure technique
 Chinese acupuncture theory of energy flows
 Taoist philosophy
 Western psychology (particularly insights correlating emotional states with body “armoring” and their transformation using Jin Shin Do bodymind techniques)

reduces pain and discomfort
 releases physical and emotional tensions and blocks
 calms and relaxes
 increases self-awareness
releases emotions stored in the body
 enhances emotional tranquility
 balances bodymind energy

Plus, many physical and emotional conditions benefit:

 headaches
 sinus problems
back, neck and shoulder pain
 menstrual cramps
 high blood pressure
 depression
and much more!

For any persistent pain or symptom, even a seemingly minor one, the reader is strongly encouraged to consult a medical doctor. When used in conjunction with standard medical treatment, the Jin Shin Do Acupressure technique can assist the healing process by releasing tension, decreasing stress and encouraging a sense of increased well-being.
