Originated by psychotherapist Iona Marsaa Teeguarden beginning in the 1970s, Jin Shin Do® Bodymind Acupressure® is a unique synthesis of traditional Japanese acupressure technique, classic Chinese acupuncture and acupressure theory, Taoist philosophy, Qigong, Reichian segmental theory and principles of Ericksonian psychotherapy. JSD® Acupressure uses gentle, yet deep finger pressure on specific acu-points to help release “armoring” or chronic tension, balance the “Qi” or energy, and improve vitality.
You might ask, How is a "trance-like" state evoked by receiving Jin Shin Do® Acupressure? In 1985 at a Psychotherapy Conference, Teeguarden discovered that trance describes the "relaxed state of increased awareness" she had experienced receiving and giving Jin Shin Do® Acupressure sessions. A trance state is essentially "a meditative state, usually including muscular relaxation, heightened awareness, slowing of the breathing and pulse rate, and at times eyelid flutter, tearing, tiny muscle movements, tingling, and time distortion."
