A Self Help Hold for Emergencies

In any ACUTE emergency situation I  immediately go for the EMERGENCY hold. I describe emergency situations which involve breathing difficulties, nausea, vomiting, sudden malaise, abdominal cramps, menstrual cramps…

Needless to say, this hold is by no means meant to substitute medical attention.

Jin Shin Jyutsu emergencies 2 The hold: Place the palms of your hands on the insides of the knees. This hold can also be applied to another and can be done with arms crossed or not – I personally like crossing my arms., but experiment with which way feels more comfortable and effective for you.

The energy site on the inside of the knee is called the ‘One’ – Prime Mover.

We have 26 energy sites on the right and left sides of the body which are mirror images of each other. Number 1 energy site (or ‘Safety Energy Locks’ as they are called in Jin Shin Jyutsu), are located on the insides of the knees, and are helpful in this kind of emergency because they MOVE THE ENERGY DOWN, and assist in keeping it moving, connecting our head with our toes and vice versa.

I have used the Ones in the few acute situations that I have experienced over the years, and it took a few minutes for the pain and discomfort to subside, but I held on, and I have never had recurrences.

I started my journey in complementary therapies in 1997 after a successful career in advertising. I began by studying the physical body and received my Diploma in Holistic Aromatherapy from the Tisserand Institute (TIDHA) in London in 1999. Around that time, I had a very interesting experience and became fascinated with the energy in the body. I explored various modalities like Reiki, Spiritual Healing, Shamanism and the like, but felt that I was missing something. Then I discovered the Universal Art of Jin Shin Jyutsu, a hands-on therapy that can be applied by a trained practitioner and also learnt as self help. I suffered from migraines and was amazed that with some simple self help exercises I was able to manage the headaches and then clear them. I became a fully trained Jin Shin Jyutsu Practitioner in 2000 and have been teaching the self help classes since 2001. Over the years I have attended Jin Shin Jyutsu seminars and advanced classes presented by the original instructors that Mary Burmeister herself taught. I live in Wiltshire, England where I offer treatments, talks and self help classes. My role is simply to introduce the awareness of this gentle, yet dynamic Universal Art which is available to each and every one of us to use for our health, wellbeing and longevity.
