Jin Shin Do Bodymind Acupressure
Jin Shin Do Bodymind Acupressure™Bodywork
A proprietary form of Oriental massage developed by American psychotherapist IM Teeguarden, which applies deep and prolonged acupressure to release “armouring” (muscular tension of emotional origin). Jin Shin Do incorporates acupuncture, Jungian therapy, Reichian theory, shiatsu and Taoist breathing; the technique promotes relaxation, increased awareness, and inner peace, and is believed to be effective in treating allergies, attention-deficit disorder, bedwetting, eyestrain, fatigue, coughs, headaches, insomnia, low back pain, lung congestion, mood disorders (e.g., anger, anxiety, depression, guilt), nosebleeds, tension and other conditions.
