Jin Shin Do® Bodymind Acupressure®
Continuing Education for Licensed Massage Therapists
Jin Shin Do® Bodymind Acupressure® uses gentle yet deep finger pressure on specific acu-points and verbal body focusing techniques to help release chronic tension, balance energy, and improve vitality. This clothes-on method is a unique synthesis of a traditional Japanese acupressure technique, classic Chinese acu-theory, Taoist philosophy, Qi Gong (breathing and exercise techniques), Reichian segmental theory, and principles of Eriksonian psychotherapy.
Jin Shin Do® is designed for the massage therapist who commits to exploring the underlying principles of acupressure; those principles are different from the Western approach and lend an additional level of expertise to one’s practice. The Jin Shin Do® Foundation is approved by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork as a CEC provider (#026771); also approved by California Board of Registered Nursing, Provider #04744. Jin Shin Do® is not intended for diagnosis, treatment, or cure of disease. Classes can also be taken for self-care and personal growth. For more information, go to www.jinshindo.org.
