The hands and the fingers are the keys to self help in Jin Shin Jyutsu. Master Jiro Murai practised only a few finger positions for seven days when he was labelled ‘terminally ill’ and made a full recovery.
He also fasted and meditated which I’m sure fast tracked things considerably – but I wouldn’t advise anyone doing this without medical supervision, especially if any condition has already been diagnosed.
However, holding the fingers every day, whenever your hands are free to do so, is a good way to clean, harmonise and revitalise all our 144,000 energy functions.
The good news is that the effects over time are cumulative, so the more you hold your fingers, the more you’ll feel the effects (you’ll feel calmer, think straighter, have more energy etc).
See the links below for how to hold the thumb and each finger and harmonise each corresponding emotion (or ATTITUDE as they’re called in Jin Shin Jyutsu) as well as helping many other things:
Hold the thumb for WORRY (and insomnia)
Hold the index finger for FEAR or ANXIETY
Hold the middle finger for ANGER
Hold the ring finger for GRIEF (and tinnitus)
Hold the little finger for PRETENSE or TRYING TO (too hard)
