How to relax the mind as well as the body: a thorough introduction to the sensible new

therapy known as Jin Shin Do.

Pent-up" aggressions, "repressed" emotions, "controlled" rage -- we spend so

much time resisting negative feelings that we become afraid of feeling at all. Now

there is a simple, gentle technique, Jin Shin Do -- which is rapidly gaining acceptance

around the world -- that offers a practical way of dealing with daily emotional stress.

The Joy of Feeling clearly explains Jin Shin Do, the author's unique synthesis of

Western psychology, Taoist philosophy, and acupressure theory, with examples and

anecdotes drawn from a dozen years of her professional therapeutic work in

California and elsewhere.

The Joy of Feeling spells out this therapeutic system in detail, showing the physical

tension points associated with such negative emotions as fear, anger, and guilt,

and demonstrating the "acu-release" exercises that can overcome them. Best of

all, this method can help one to learn to transform, rather than repress, bad feelings

leading to a more positive and pleasant way of life.
