1350 S Eliseo Dr, Greenbrae, CA 94904, USA

Introductory Group Seminar

Jin Shin Jyutsu facilitates the body’s profound healing capacity by balancing energy. Jin Shin Jyutsu treatments support the body, mind, and spirit through non-invasive, gentle touch that is administered while the individual is fully clothed. While similar to acupuncture and acupressure, Jin Shin Jyutsu does not use needles, pressure, or rubbing.

 RSVP is suggested: Call 1-888-996-9644 to register.
