Revised Edition

Key theories, body-mind processing skills, and practical applications to common problems. 60 release examples. Now even more complete, the revised edition includes new chapters on Posttraumatic Stress Disorder and the 5 Elements by Iona, and on anxiety and insomnia, and JSD as adjunctive first aid for athletic injuries.

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:

  • 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;
  • Anxiety and insomnia as indications of disturbed Shen, or Spirit, with point combinations integrating traditional acupuncture theory with segmental theory;
  • The Five Elemental Processes as a practical guide to a harmonious relationship with Nature, both around us and within us;
  • JSD acupressure as an adjunct to first aid for athletic injuries in outdoor situations like hiking and wilderness travel.
  • 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.
