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.
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.
There is an energy site on the outside of the wrist which is number 17 – it came into the universe meaning Reproductive Energy (as in generating new energy).
Hold this energy site in emergencies to balance the nervous system.
It is also a great helper to alleviate anxiety and panic attacks; and you can use it as a smelling salt if you feel faint.
This energy site on the outside of the wrist is also fantastic instead of that Mars bar fix in the middle of the afternoon when you might need a quick energy boost – it’s a quick reviver!
Holding the outside of the wrist also helps with the development of intuition, and alleviates chest congestion.
In the case of panic attacks, I would also cross my arms and place my hands on the insides of the knees. The insides of the knees is THE place to hold in emergencies – keeps you BREATHING, and helps ease nausea and vomiting.
If this hold is a bit awkward because you are in a public place for instance, then just grab your left little finger with your right hand and hold. I find holding the left little finger especially useful at the first sign of my heart racing a bit.
Jin Shin Jyutsu is an Ancient Art of harmonizing the life energy in the body by using the fingers and hands.
In the video below I explain some simple exercises to relieve Anxiety and Panic Attacks.
Question: What flow do you suggest for Ostoporosis diagnosis, a 75 year old woman with 4% bone loss. She has two stents from 2 heart attacks and terrible anaphalactic reactions to bees. But that’s really everything, though the ostoporosis diagnosis was this week so I am upset, what can we do? I studied with Mary years ago at a workshop in NY (1982?) – S
Answer: Hi S, Thanks for your questions. Let’s deal with one thing at a time. Osteoporosis is characterized by the loss of normal density of bone, resulting in fragile bone. It can go undetected for years. Osteoporosis leads to literally abnormally porous bone. This disorder of the skeleton weakens the bone causing an increase in the risk for breaking bones (information by Medicinenet.com)
The good news is that there is a special Jin Shin Jyutsu hold that can help. You can apply it to someone else, or the person can apply it as self help. Do it every day for at least 20 minutes and if possible, 2x a day for at least two weeks and keep going! (This Special Body Function hold is on page 54 of Mary’s Text 2).
The Jin Shin Jyutsu Hold for Osteoporosis: Place Left hand over Left Shoulder ( SEL 11/3) and Right hand on the Left elbow crease (SEL 19). See the diagram.
This hold helps with the conditions of osteoporosis, all arthritic projects, and the heart. It also lubricates the joints, and helps with nearsightedness.
In the case of anaphylactic shock, I resort to THE EMERGENCY HOLD, which is holding the inside of the knees (SEL 1), as well as all the other requirements in an emergency. Safety Energy Lock 1 is called The Prime Mover. It is found on the inside (medial side) of the knees. It connects extreme heights with extreme depths and harmonises us from head to toe because it helps the descending energy (which moves down the front) and the ascending energy (which moves up the back). Use in the case of any EMERGENCY – breathing, vomiting, nausea, shock, stomach cramp etc.
Additional Information: A stent is a small mesh tube that’s used to treat narrowed or weakened arteries in the body and Anaphylaxis is a severe allergic reaction that occurs rapidly and causes a life-threatening response involving the whole body. This reaction can lead to difficulty breathing and shock, so one has to act quickly (see more on medicinenet.com)
Just a few of my favourite foods with High Calcium content: Parsley, Sesame seeds, Almonds, Hazelnuts, Pistachio nuts, dried Figs, Chickpeas, Dark Molasses, Raw Collards and Kale. A lot of these foods like the dried figs also have high Iron content. The list is exhaustive especially of dried spices: basil, marjoram, thyme, dill weed, celery, sage, coriander, fennel seed, cumin seed, cinnamon and others…
Someone asked me a question the other day about how to heal a wound FAST with Jin Shin Jyutsu. My brain, bless it, went crazy TRYING TO (sound familiar?) look for the ‘best’ and of course, most complicated answer – ‘do this flow and that flow and all these flows’ – that’s the problem when one is given such an extensively wonderful ‘menu’ to choose from. It was only later that I just RELAXED and I REMEMBERED how to BE instead of what to DO.
The EMERGENCY hold for healing a wound anywhere on the body FAST: place LEFT hand over RIGHT hand – then place the hands over the wound. See this older post for the photo and more of an explanation JSJ WOUND HEALING HOLD Helps even the deepest wound heal fast.
And while I’m at it….The EMERGENCY hold for taking anything that doesn’t belong in the body (from a splinter to a piece of glass or a contact that’s disappeared to the back of the eye) – and for any burns. Just place the RIGHT hand over the LEFT hand – then place the hands over the affected area. See this older post for this other Jin Shin Jyutsu Emergency HoldESPECIALLY USEFUL FOR HEALING BURNS (use this hold first to draw out the burn, then the other hold to repair the skin….)
This second first aid Jin Shin Jyutsu holds DRAWS ENERGY OUT OF THE BODY for BURNS HEALING.
Just place your RIGHT hand over your LEFT hand and hold over the affected part of the body. Again, if there is serious trauma, then don’t touch the body – hold your hands above it over the affected area.
Use this hold whenever you need to draw something out of the body.
I’ve used it incredibly successfully when for instance, my contact lens has moved to the back of my eye and I can’t get it out. Well, no more panic. A few seconds of the hands in this position over the eye and presto! like magic! It pops right out.
To get anything out of the eye quickly and easily – this is the hold. Tried and tested.
Also great for HEALING BURNS. If there is a burn accident, call the ambulance, and while you wait, place your hands in this position over the affected area – if the burns cover a lot of the body, get everyone and anyone available to join in – this hold will start DRAWING OUT THE BURN instead of it going deeper and deeper into the body.
Then there is a long list of things like: stings (poison ivy, nettle etc), infections, cysts, splinters, pain in an area of concentration like headache, toothache, tummy ache, etc.
