WHAT IS IT?
Jin Shin Jyutsu® physio-philosophy is an ancient Art of harmonising the life energy in the body by using the fingers and hands (over clothing) on specific energy sites. I often describe it as ‘Acupuncture with the fingers’ but there no pressure, massage or manipulation of the muscles is used.
It alleviates stress/tensions, eliminates fatigue, relieves pain, balances emotions, boosts the immune system and promotes mental alertness. The treatment is a pleasurable experience, generally one of deep relaxation, and the benefits are usually felt immediately.
Jin Shin Jyutsu employs 26 ‘safety energy locks’ along energy pathways that feed life into our bodies. When one or more of the paths become blocked, the resulting stagnation can disrupt the local area and eventually dis-harmonise the complete path of energy flow. Holding these energy locks in combination can bring balance to mind, body, and spirit.
WHAT CAN IT HELP WITH?
Jin Shin Jyutsu releases tensions and acts as a deep cleaner: it detoxifies, re-balances and re-generates the whole being. As there are no contraindications, it is safe for children, pregnant mothers, the elderly and infirm. It is also a great support for people on medication and those undergoing cancer or other treatments. It can alleviate stress-related conditions and I have found it particularly helpful for dealing with physical and mental exhaustion, a run-down immune system, anxieties, as well as pains and discomforts.
Astrid Kauffmann, Practitioner
I became interested in Jin Shin Jyutsu after using some simple self help exercises to clear my migraine headaches in 1998. I am a trained Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner and have shared my passion and knowledge of this Art since 2001 via treatments, talks and self help classes.
