This afternoon I went swimming and after my 10th lap one of my toes on my right foot got cramp. What is a girl to do? If you’ve ever had cramp in an awkward place then you’ll know that it’s hard not to panic and to keep from going mad with the pain…
However, first-aid Jin Shin Jyutsu comes to the rescue. Of course, call out for help. If you’re alone, first thing to do is to grab the toe and hold on to it for a few seconds. Then as quickly as you can place your fingers on the dorsal knee (place right fingers behind right knee) and hold. Or hold the backs of the knee whichever way possible – get someone else to hold them if necessary.
The pain and cramp should disappear in a few seconds – i.e. immediately.
Also great for muscle cramps in the legs – fantastic first aid if you wake up with muscle cramp during the night.
It’s easy, quick and safe. Effortless reality.
Years ago I had long hair. I had just washed it and was combing it out. I remember that reaching down to comb it was rather awkward sometimes because my shoulders were tense, but it was never a real problem until this particular day. I made a wrong move, and my whole right shoulder went into spasm. I nearly fainted with the pain. Then, in an instant, I remembered that the body has a special energy site behind the knees to help ease tension in the muscles. It was a wonderful opportunity to test out the theory.
I grabbed the BACKS OF MY KNEES (sat down on the floor, then placed my right fingers on the back of my right knee and left fingers on the back of my left knee) – and just held on for dear life. Within seconds the spasm subsided, then the pain eased – kept holding – and then it disappeared altogether. Within 15 minutes I could go about my business as if nothing had happened.
