Jin Shin Jyutsu for Headache and Migraine

I was reminded in the last few days how I found Jin Shin Jyutsu in the first place: through the debilitating migraines that I used to suffer. Last week I was sitting in front of the computer and PRESTO! started getting the tell tale zig zag signs in front of my eyes.

I immediately closed my eyes and held the base of the thumb – that didn’t do too much, so I went to the outside of my heels (just under the ankles) and held the left one with the left hand, and the right one with the right hand. That started ‘opening’ up this zig zag lightning bolt…then I went back to the base of the thumb (held the left one with the right fingers). Then I also held the back of the head – I dug my fingers in where it was sore and held for a while until there was a strong pulse. Then I went back to the outside of the heels.

Within 20 minutes it was all gone, and I went back to the computer. Isn’t it great to be able to manage pain so quickly and easily? The body knows how.
