Jin Shen Do

Jin Shen Do is a unique synthesis of traditional Japanese acupressure technique, classical Chinese acupuncture theory, Taoist philosophy and breathing methods, and western psychological theories including Reichian segmental theory.

Jin Shin Do, developed by Iona Marsaa Teeguarden during nearly two decades (1970-1991) of professional therapeutic study and work throughout North America, Europe and Japan, uses firm finger pressure at acupuncture points to induce muscular and emotional release. During a Jin Shin Do session, the client lies fully clothed on a treatment table as pairs of acu-points are held. As tensions are released, the body is able to rebalance and function more fully.

Jin Shin Jyutsu®

An ancient Japanese form of acupressure that balances the body's energy by using the fingers and hands pressure along energy pathways that feed life into our bodies to induce muscular and emotional release.
Jin Shin Jyutsu can be applied as self-help and also by a trained practitioner. It is simple to learn and yet unlocks the natural energy of the mind and body for increased health and happiness.
A session generally lasts about an hour. It does not involve massage, manipulation of muscles, or use of drugs or substances. It is a gentle art, practiced by placing the fingertips (over clothing) on designated safety energy locks, to harmonize and restore the energy flow. This facilitates the reduction of tension and stress which accumulate through normal daily living.

Korean Martial Therapy (Hwal Bop Do)

Korean Martial Therapy™ is an effective deep tissue modality, which is gentle on the practitioner. It may be performed with the client on a table, the floor or in a chair. The practitioner may use oils or not as they choose. A large number of KMT techniques™ make up Korean Martial Therapy™. These techniques include massage strokes, stretches, pressure point therapy, yum yang therapy and Korean energy work. These may be used selectively or in any combination.

Korean Martial Therapy™ began in Korea about 400 years ago as self-therapy stretches. These were found useful for keeping warriors in top condition and to recover fast from injury. The techniques were added to over time and today is associated with Hapkido. As a martial art (the healing art), Korean Martial Therapy™ utilizes the body movement to establish balance either as an assisted therapy or as self-therapy. In using martial arts body movement the techniques never put the practitioners body under stress (great news for the hands). As a martial art, Korean Martial Therapy™ uses ballistic stretches, which help adjust the body to modern

As a modality for treating injured fighters, Korean Martial Therapy offers quick treatment of injuries and pain relief. This modality is useful as on site treatment or in the clinic or salon. The techniques taught offer many ways to treat modern injuries such as repetitive motion syndrome, stress and muscle strains. While American law designates the allowed practices by massage therapists, physical therapists, chiropractors, physicians and others in health care; Hwal Bop Do crosses all of these lines as a Traditional Korean Medicine. As a result there are levels of the KMT Techniques, which can be useful to each of these professions.
