Jin Shin Do with Kamala Quale - Moon and Lotus LLC


Kamala Quale is a registered Jin Shin Do® Acupressurist and authorized Jin Shin Do® Teacher.

Jin Shin Do® means “The Way of the Compassionate Spirit.” Jin Shin Do® Bodymind Acupressure® classes teach the use of gentle yet deep finger pressure on specific acu-points and verbal Body Focusing techniques, to help release “armoring” or chronic tension, balance the “Qi” or energy, and improve vitality.

This clothes-on method helps relieve stress- and trauma- related problems. A unique synthesis of a traditional Japanese acupressure technique, classic Chinese acupuncture and acupressure theory, Taoist philosophy, Qigong (breathing and exercise techniques), Reichian segmental theory and principles of Ericksonian psychotherapy, it is recognized as a major form of Asian Bodywork Therapy (by NCCAOM® & AOBTA® among others).

Originated by psychotherapist Iona Marsaa Teeguarden, JSD® Acupressure promotes a pleasant trancelike state, in which one can relax and move out of the head and into the body, accessing feelings and inner wisdom.

Jin Shin Do® Acupressure is not intended for the diagnosis, treatment or cure of disease. It is a relaxation therapy, and a useful adjunct to licensed, qualified medical or psychological care. For any persistent pain or symptom, even a seemingly minor one, the reader is strongly encouraged to consult a medical doctor. When used in conjunction with standard medical treatment, the Jin Shin Do® Acupressure technique can assist the healing process by releasing tension, decreasing stress and encouraging a sense of increased well-being.



Jin Shin Do® has a user-friendly teaching system and works even for beginners with no background in acupuncture, acupressure or bodywork. Students learn to ease physical tension and create a space to explore emotions and insights that arise. Its gentle and slow-paced finger pressure technique makes it ideal to foster self-awareness, and easy to integrate with other bodywork methods to enhance therapeutic effects. Jin Shin Do® can be done with clothing on and is appropriate for working with diverse populations and in varied settings, such as with athletes, the elderly, with children, and in on-site locations. Class format involves short lecture, experiential exercises, demonstrations and supervised practice.



Module I in the Jin Shin Do® class series includes Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced JSD® plus a 25 hr. bodymind skills class. For current Basic and Intermediate JSD® classes please contact Becky Smith, LMT at (541) 345-7189
