Front Cover
Japan Publications, 2002 - Health & Fitness - 341 pages
A Complete Guide to Acupressure fills the need for something in between simplistic acupressure books and complicated acupuncture texts. Now even more complete, this new edition has been updated to include:
o JSD as a tool for aiding recovery from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder - a state of hyperarousal following a traumatic experience like an accident, attack, or disaster;
o Anxiety and insomnia as indications of disturbed Shen, or Spirit, with point combinations integrating traditional acupuncture theory with segmental theory;
o The Five Elemental Processes as a practical guide to a harmonious relationship with Nature, both around us and within us;
o JSD acupressure as an adjunct to first aid for athletic injuries in outdoor situations like hiking and wilderness travel.
o A clothes-on technique, Jin Shin Do is the author's unique synthesis of a Japanese acupressure technique, traditional Chinese acupuncture theory, Taoist philosophy, Qigong (breathing exercises), and Western psychological tools. A Complete Guide to Acupressure describes this synthesis in detail, with chapters by Iona and senior Jin Shin Do teachers in the U.S., Canada and Europe. "Jin Shin Do" means "The Way of the Compassionate Spirit," and this book is a treasure house of ways to treat ourselves compassionately.
o Iona Marsaa Teeguarden, M.A., L.M.F.T. has taught Jin Shin Do Acupressure throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe for three decades. The author of the classic Acupressure Way of Health and The Joy of Feeling: Bodymind Acupressure, she is a Diplomate of Asian Bodywork Therapy (NCCAOM), and has been a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist since 1983.
