Jin Shin Jyutsu is a gentle healing method in which hands are placed over specific points on the body to re-establish energy flow through pathways in the body. Jin Shin Jyutsu can relieve pain and bring the person into a balanced state of well-being. Jessie routinely incorporates a few Jin Shin Jyutsu techniques into her osteopathy sessions.

Tui na is a method of point massage that, along with acupuncture and herbal medicine, forms the three main branches of Chinese medicine. We generally use this type of massage, following an acupuncture session, as a method of harmonizing and consolidating the treatment. It can also be substituted for acupuncture for our friends with a temporarily weak or delicate constitution, or for those who are averse to the use of acupuncture needles.

For adjunctive tui na there is no charge. Private tui na sessions are $65 for one hour.
