Jin Shin Do
"The Way of the Compassionate Spirit"- This therapy uses elements
of acupressure both from China
as well as verbal guidance. The therapist places direct pressure upon
acupressure points which follow the general pattern of strain in the body, ie
back, shoulders, and neck. By having balanced pressure applied to both the
right (Yan) and left (Yin) sides simultaneously, the client is able to relax
fully without self-guarding. When the body is in discomfort for some time,
people begin to "guard" or hold themselves tense in what we call
"fight or flight" mode. This treatment not only restores balance to
the body, but also peace of mind to the client. Experience this harmony and
wisdom of the Ancients, and renew yourself today.

and feet set the tensions levels for the rest of the body, they important
areas not to be overlooked when getting massage of any sort. This technique

The benefits are not limited here however. Combined with re-patterning or
re-teaching the body what it is capable of, Orthobionomy can aid in restoring
balance and circulation to areas of discomfort. For
example: A client in neck spasm, tries to stretch neck and makes it worse. With
a different position that does NOT stretch, this same client can experience
relief and release. Teach your body that your pain in unnecessary with
your therapist today! Muscles may have memory, but they can be GOOD memories
