“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 stressand 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 Ericksonian psychotherapy, JSD® acupressure was originated by Iona Marsaa Teeguarden.

Jin Shin Do® Acupressure is not intended for the diagnosis, treatment or cure of disease. It is a relaxation therapy, and a useful adjunct to licensed, qualified medical or psychological care. 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.



I am so glad I attended this class. Acupressure is better that an hour massage, and I can do it myself, anytime. It makes me feel so relaxed but energized at the same time. I recommend this class to everyone.

I attended this class with my wife and had no idea what I was getting into, but I loved it and learned so much. Tami is a great instructor. I have incorporated the techniques into my life. I feel so much better and have never slept better. Take this class! You won’t regret it.
