After 10 years of experiencing Jin Shin Jytusu, I can vouch for an awareness, a feeling of oneness, a profound connection with the all-encompassing energy of the universe that also connects us all. Working my way through various writings, I found that Master Jiro Murai studied acupuncture points, then took them a step further by experimenting on himself and fasting. He compared what he experienced, what he felt, to the ancient acupuncture writings. His experiences were much more profound than what he found in the writings.
Master Jiro Murai never left Japan, but his vision was to make the practice of Jin Shin Jyutsu available to the world.
After many, many years of study with Master Jiro Murai, Mary Burmeister began teaching the Art to others.
Mary describes the essence of Jin Shin Jyutsu as ‘Getting to To KNOW (Help) MYSELF.
Jin Shin Jyutsu physio-philosophy is an ancient art of harmonizing the life energy in the body. Born of innate wisdom and passed down from generation to generation by word of mouth, the Art had fallen into relative obscurity when it was dramatically revived in the early 1900’s by Master Jiro Murai in Japan.
After clearing himself of a life-threatening illness, Master Murai devoted the rest of his life to the research and development of Jin Shin Jyutsu, gathering insight from a range of experiences and resources, including the Kojiki (Record of Ancient Things). The resulting knowledge of Jin Shin Jyutsu was then given to Mary Burmeister, who brought it to the United States in the 1950’s.
Mary Burmeister began teaching the Art to others in the early 1960’s, and today there are thousands of students throughout the United States and around the world.
