Nancy L. Dennis is a registered nurse with a Bachelors Degree, majoring in anthropology, who lived, worked and studied for three years in a rain forest village in India, where she learned much about our inter-connectedness.
She served as Director of Nursing and Clinical Administrator in the mental health field for more than two decades. The programs she developed for children, adolescents and adults emphasized connection with their families, to their communities, to nature and the universe.
Nancy adopted five children from India. In searching for help for her children’s congenital health problems, she learned about the Shiatsu certification program at Meridian Shiatsu Institute. She completed certification in the Shiatsu program and had the opportunity to pursue further studies in Jin Shin Do®. She is a Registered Jin Shin Do® Acupressurist and Authorized Jin Shin Do® Teacher of Basic and Intermediate levels. She has been teaching since 1998 and practicing both Shiatsu and Jin Shin Do® Bodymind Acupressure® since 1996.
"Jin Shin Do" means "The Way of the Compassionate Spirit." Jin Shin Do®Bodymind Acupressure® uses 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. An unique synthesis of a traditional Japanese acupressure technique, classic Chinese acu-theory, Taoist philosophy, Qigong (breathing and exercise techniques), Reichian segmental theory and principles of Ericksonian psychotherapy, JSD acupressure was originated by Iona Marsaa Teeguarden.
Jin Shin Do® Acupressure in 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.
