Jin Shin Jyutsu

Jin Shin Jyutsu is a way to balance our life energy and achieve optimum health. It shows us how to use hands-on sequences to restore emotional equilibrium, relieve pain, and release the cause of both acute and chronic conditions. It can be used safely in conjunction with any other therapy or medication(s), and can be used anywhere and at any time.

The therapist uses a system that employs 26 points on your body, referred to as safety energy locks, located along energy pathways known as meridians. Holding these points in sequence re-establishes the flow of energy throughout your body. This can bring about relief for any type of stress, whether it is mental, emotional, physical, or spiritual.

Jin Shin Jyutsu is a healing art with a history of over 5,000 years; it means “the art of the creator through compassionate man”. The healing art that those words represent is based upon our own natural, innate ability to harmonise ourselves. For thousands of years, ancient peoples used this awareness to heal both themselves and others.

Over time this awareness was all but forgotten until a Japanese sage named Jiro Murai rediscovered Jin Shin Jyutsu in the early part of the twentieth century. His 3 key students included Mary Burmeister (a Japanese American), her father, and Haruki Kato. Mary Burmeister brought the art from Japan to America in 1954 and through her teachings, books, and thousands of classes held around the world this awareness continues to grow. Today, over 13,000 practice this art; the main office is in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA.

Jin Shin Jyutsu is a form of energy healing and a holistic therapy.
