My Jin Shin Jyutsu Story: Digestion

Flows For Life Header

Peter’s Jin Shin Jyutsu Story started when a colleague enthused to him about this Universal Art of harmonising the life energy in the body.

Peter writes:

I have been a homeopath since 1984. I first heard about Jin Shin Jyutsu when studying the Homeopathic Tissue Salts with a colleague.

She attended a Self-Help introductory workshop in London that same weekend and told me about it and how excited she was.

Three months later my journey in Jin Shin Jyutsu began.  

I studied The Touch of Healing by Alice Burmeister and then started my first of four (to date) 5-Day practitioner training seminars in September 2010.

The First Great Result with Jin Shin Jyutsu

My first really great result came when my wife and I visited friends in the South of France. They spoiled us the first evening we arrived; there was so much beautiful rich food, cheeses, pate and wine, none of which we were really used to consuming.  

By bedtime I suddenly realised that the meal was sitting like a stone in my guts! “Never going to get to sleep”, I thought to myself.

Luckily I remembered that holding the ‘points’ on the crease of both my elbows could relieve digestive problems. Astrid’s note on the exercise: Cross the arms. Then place the right fingers on the crease of the left elbow and place the left fingers on the crease of the right elbow. Relax the hands and hold until there is relief.

Sure enough, and without any exaggeration, within 5 minutes of starting to hold both these points I felt relief. I went to sleep, slept like a baby and woke up refreshed and feeling great!

About The Author

FlowsforLife

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.
