A Teishin is a small healing instrument made of gold, silver, jade or other precious materials.  The word itself signifies a ‘needle-like instrument or probe that does not penetrate the skin.’ Shamanic healers in ancient China discovered and developed the points and meridians of acupuncture using stone probes several thousand years before the invention of needles.  

What distinguishes it from traditional acupuncture, is that it does not penetrate the skin, but it is set apart from acupressure in that it applies a more exact, intense stimulation of acupuncture points than would be achievable with simple pressure.  The advantage of this is obvious for people who fear needles.

Puncturing of acupoints became more fashionable during the 1600's with the advent of steel needles.

The purpose of treatment is to heal and protect the "Three Treasures."

    Qi - nourishing, defensive and organ energies

    Jing - fluid secretions

    Shen - energies of intelligence and awareness

The goal of the courses is to train practitioners in "needle-less acupuncture" to locate and manipulate the essential acupoints.

The word teishin signifies a needle-like instrument or probe that does not penetrate the skin. The advantage of this is obvious for people who fear needles.
