Acupressure refers to any technique using finger pressure on "acu-points" to reduce stress and balance body energy. An acupressure method may be simple and symptomatic, or sophisticated and deeply therapeutic.

Jin Shin Do® (The Way of the Compassionate Spirit) is a unique synthesis of traditional Japanese acupressure techniques, classic Chinese acupuncture theory, Reichian segmental theory, Taoist philosophy, Qi-gong exercises and western psychotherapy. Developed by Iona Marsaa Teeguarden, M.A.,L.M.F.T., this sensible therapy outlines tension points associated with common physical problems and with distressing feelings like anxiety, depression, guilt and anger. Jin Shin Do® contrasts with acupuncture in the absence of needles, and because one individual is touched by another in a highly supportive way which evokes the feeling of being held, cradled and safe. It contrasts with Shiatsu in being a more slow-paced method and focussing more on deep release of muscular armouring.
