Very often, people who discover this Art which has roots in ancient teachings, ask me where they can learn more about it. They might have had Jin Shin Jyutsu treatments and started self help with the Practitioner. A lot of my clients want to know more once they’ve experienced the power of some of the self help holds.
As a starting point, I always recommend The Touch of Healing by Alice Burmeister. It’s also available in Spanish as El Toque Sanador and in other languages as well.

Then there are three books for Self Help written by Mary Burmeister, ideally used in conjunction with a self help class for each book.

Introducing Jin Shin Jyutsu IS. Book 1 by Mary Burmeister
Introducing Jin Shin Jyutsu IS. (Continued) KNOW MYSELF IT IS Book 2 by Mary Burmeister
Introducing Jin Shin Jyutsu IS. (Continued) KNOW MYSELF BE IT IS, IS. Book 3 by Mary Burmeister
The next step is to enrol in a self help class – there are many student/practitioners around the world who offer the these classes based on Mary Burmeister’s three self help books.
Then there is the possibility to enrol on a five day basic seminar with an authorized Jin Shin Jyutsu instructor. In 2013, there were 25 instructors. Some of the group originally learned from Mary Burmeister herself and they include: Muriel Carlton, Wayne Hackett, Jed Schwartz, Philomena Dooley and others. The five day classes are a combination of theory and practice. Each student receives and gives a Jin Shin Jyutsu treatment each day – the practical sessions are usually quite a life changing experience in themselves!
