Jin Shin Jyutsu Acupressure
Jin Shin Jyutsu is an ancient Japanese are for balancing the life energies of the body to promote natural health, vitality and a sense of welll-being. It is a gentle art, practiced by placing the fingertips(over clothing) on specific acupressure points on the body to harmonize and restore the energy flow. Each session begins and ends with pulse listening to determine which areas of the body need balancing.
Raindrop massage is a gentle, yet powerful technique which uses 10 therapeutic-grade essential oils applied along the spine to strengthen the immune system, balance the nervous system and help relax spinal
curvatures. The oils are dropped like “drops of rain” directly onto the spine from a height of 6 inches above the back. Following the light massage strokes, warm moist heat is applied to enhance the penetration of the oils and allow for full-body relaxation. Oils are also massaged on the lower legs and the soles of the feet. The treatment time is approximately 60-75 minutes. The oils may continue to realign the body for up to 5 days after the session.
Tai Chi — Qi-Gong
Tai Chi is known as an internal martial art and is often called “moving meditation”. The health benefits include greater flexibility, increased energy, improved posture and reduced stress. Tai Chi usually begins with the practice of specific Qi-Gong exercises which are designed to coordinate the breath with movement and open the body’s energy centers and channels. The slow rhythmic movements will build stamina and improve balance with daily practice. She teaches the Temple Style of Tai Chi.

Therapeutic Massage is the scientific art and system of assessment and systematic, manual application of a technique to the superficial soft tissue of the skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia, as well as to the structures that lie within the superficial tissue, by means of the hand, foot, knee, arm, elbow and forearm. The manual technique involves systematic application of touch, stroking, friction, vibration, percussion, kneading, stretching, compression, or passive and active joint movements within the normal physiologic range of motion. Also included are adjunctive external applications of water, heat and cold for the purpose of improving muscle tone, stimulating circulation and producing therapeutic effects on the respiratory and nervous systems and the subtle interactions among all body systems.
