JIN SHIN JYUTSU (Japanese Acupressure)
Jin Shin Jyutsu, translated as the “Art of the Creator through the person of compassion” is a gentle form of Japanese acupressure that seeks to restore balance to the body’s natural energy flow patterns. Illness, injury, and stress can cause energy to become disharmonized causing a wide variety of symptoms and ailments. By gently applying hands on different areas of the body in a specialized pattern, energy is stimulated to reawaken and move harmoniously through the energy pathways. Sessions generally last about an hour and are done over clothing.
Vicki can instruct you in the self-application of Jin Shin Jyutsu for daily practice. This improves the impact of treatments and empowers clients to learn how to harmonize their own energy, relieve symptoms, and increase overall health and vitality.
To learn self-care, you can incorporate teaching into your individual sessions, or you can attend a 2-hour introductory workshop. For more in-depth study, a series of classes is offered.
Vicki incorporates aromatherapy into her healing sessions for those who are interested. Aromatherapy is a holistic healing treatment that uses natural plant extracts to promote health and well-being. Sometimes it's called essential oil therapy. Aromatherapy uses aromatic essential oils medicinally to improve the health of the body, mind, and spirit. It enhances both physical and emotional health.
