about igm

IGM® is a method that is unique, easily grasped, comprehensive and non-invasive. IGM® Therapeutic Acupressure is a multi-conceptual combination of five eastern meridian-based therapy techniques: Acupressure, Shiatsu, AMMA, Reflexology and Jin Shin Jyutsu, along with components of Therapeutic Touch, Music and Color Therapy. This multi-conceptual modality facilitates the restoration of overall balance, harmony and wellness to the body-mind-spirit. IGM® Therapeutic Acupressure uses 50 specific therapeutic combinations along the body's energy channels, called meridians, in a simple triangulated sequential order that opens blocked areas for optimal flow of life force energy (chi).

According to the ancient oriental art of therapeutic touch therapy, the human body has a network of channels (meridians) through which our vital life force (chi) energy flows. When this flow of energy is interrupted, an imbalance occurs and disease and discomfort manifest in certain areas of the body.

Through the application of IGM, these channels are reopened, allowing the life force (chi) energy to flow, restoring balance and wellness to the body.
