Jin Shin Jyutsu

Although trademarked as Jin Shin Jyutsu® by Mary Burmeister (who learned from Master Jiro Murai), the practice is said to be an ancient healing art. Jin Shin Jyutsu uses gentle touch and acupressure on specific areas on the body to balance and restore the internal energy flow.

Jin Shin works with a holistic approach addressing body, mind, and spirit with the goal of stimulating the body’s innate self-healing and rejuvenating mechanisms. It shows some resemblance with the Japanese Reiki practice.

Some health benefits of Jin Shin Jyutsu are relief of acute and chronic pain, increase of our immune function, elimination of fatigue, reduction of stress and anxiety, and improvement of digestion.

The practice works on a base-set of 26 points (which are called Safety Energy Locks) along the energy canals of the body. These 26 points are thought to be the locations on the body where energy is more likely to become blocked.

The treatment can be given by a therapist or by yourself as a daily at-home practice.
