“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 Ericksonian psychotherapy, Jin Shin Do® acupressure was originated by Iona Marsaa Teeguarden.

Craniosacral Fascial Therapy (CFT) involves a light, gentle touch to release restriction and tightness in the body. In a CFT session, the brain cycle is evaluated at the beginning and end of the therapy session. The brain cycle occurs as a result of the flow of cerebrospinal fluid within the brain and the nervous system. As a result the brain naturally expands and contracts. The brain cycle is the length of time it takes for one expansion and contraction. The quality and rhythm of the brain cycle reflects the health of the craniosacral system. The cerebrospinal fluid which flows around the brain, spine and in the connective tissue (fascia) of the body, nourishes and protects the brain and helps the body eliminate toxins. When the Craniosacral system is open, the cerebrospinal fluid can flow unrestricted and help the brain and the body to perform optimally. It is not uncommon to note that when the quality and length of the brain cycle increases, one’s health also improves as a result.
Accident, injury, surgery, trauma and a difficult birth are just some issues that can cause tightness and restriction in the body. The goal in CFT is to help the body release the tightness and restrictions and help the body perform optimally.
