JIN SHIN JYUTSU literally translated is: Art of the Creator through man of knowing and compassion
A JIN SHIN JYUTSU session generally lasts about an hour. It does not involve massage, manipulation of muscles, or use of drugs or substances. It is a gentle art, practiced by placing the fingertips (over clothing) on designated safety energy locks, to harmonize and restore the energy flow. This facilitates the reduction of tension and stress which accumulate through normal daily living. JIN SHIN JYUTSU brings balance to the body's energies, which promotes optimal health and well being, and facilitates our own profound healing capacity. It is a valuable complement to conventional healing methods, inducing relaxation and reducing the effects of stress.
JIN SHIN JYUTSU is the art of releasing tensions which are the causes for various sypmtoms in the body using twenty-six "safety energy locks" (SELs) along the energy pathways our bodies contain which feed life into all of our cells. When one or more of these paths become blocked, the resulting stagnation can disrupt the local area but will continue and eventually disharmonize the complete path or paths of the energy flow. Holding these energy locks in combination can bring balance to mind, body, and spirit.
JIN SHIN JYUTSU can be applied as self-help and also by a trained practitioner. *For those of us addressing existing stress or health disharmonies, or for those simply wishing to participate actively in maintaining health, harmony and well being, the Art of Jin Shin Jyutsu is a simple and powerful tool, available to all! After each session you will be given 'self help' holds for your specific project.
Through JIN SHIN JYUTSU, our awareness is awakened to the simple fact that we are endowed with the ability to harmonize and balance ourselves (in rhythm with the universe) physically, mentally and spiritually.
Acording to ancient written records, which remain in the Archives of the Imperial Palace in Japan, JIN SHIN JYUTSU was widely known before the birth of Gautama (Buddha, India), before the birth of Moses (recorded in the Bible), and before the Kojiki (Record of Ancient Things - Japan, A.D. 712). JIN SHIN JYUTSU is an innate part of man's wisdom - simplifying the complexities of existence - and is truly and ART OF LIVING.
JIN SHIN JYUTSU was rediscovered by Master Jiro Murai early in the 20th century. His student, Mary Burmeister, brought the Art from Japan to America in the 1950's.
BE in the Moment with the Breath and Feel Now! Words really can't describe the feelings felt when our energy locks get 'unstuck'. Some have described it as being in a meditative state where all negative thoughts disappear. There is nothing like the flowing feelings within that inspire the Jin Shin Grin ")

Step 1: Place the fingers of the right hand on the top of the head (where they will remain until step 6). Place the fingers of the left hand on your forehead between your eyebrows. Hold for 2 to 5 minutes or until the pulses you feel at your fingertips synchronize with each other.
Step 2: Now move the left fingertips to the tip of the nose. Hold them there for 2 to 5 minutes, or until the pulses synchronize.
Step 3: Move the left fingertips to your sternum (center of your chest between your breasts). Stay there for 2 to 5 minutes or until the pulses synchronize.
Step 4: Move your fingers to the base of your sternum (center of where your ribs start, above the stomach). Hold them there for 2 to 5 minutes, or until the pulses synchronize.
