Flows for Life Website about Jin Shin Jyutsu

What is Jin Shin Jyutsu?

Jin Shin Jyutsu is a universal Art of harmonising the life energy in the body. It helps us improve our health and wellbeing.

We do this by using our hands and 26 energy sites (SELs) on the body.

As Mary Burmeister, a foremost teacher of Jin Shin Jyutsu, said: “It is simply the GETTING to KNOW (Help) MYSELF.”

So... how can Jin Shin Jyutsu work for me?




Mental Tension



It's quite remarkable how the pain in my knee has subsided.
I can’t believe how much energy I have throughout the day.
I feel like a helmet has been taken off my head. It feels so clear!
I feel calmer. Much more relaxed about things.

When practiced regularly, Jin Shin Jyutsu relaxes, repairs, cleans and regenerates the whole being. It facilitates the body’s own healing ability at the root level.

Jin Shin Jyutsu Self Help Guide
Astrid Kauffmann My Story

My Jin Shin Jyutsu Story

Years ago, I suffered from debilitating migraines.

Luckily, someone I knew mentioned Jin Shin Jyutsu self help. “Jin what?” I said. I was intrigued so I investigated.

I was then amazed that a couple of simple exercises could work so quickly and effectively.

All I had to 'do' was place my hands on certain parts of my body, relax, and then - presto! - migraines cleared within minutes and I was able to go back to work.

Since then, I have had many, many experiences of being able to help myself recover from numerous (and yes, various) ailments, truly empowering me to practise hands-on self help!

What some of my students say

Previous students have given my Skills for Life courses an EXCELLENT rating! 


"Astrid provides information in a warm and engaging way. I was confident that Jin Shin Jyutsu is so familiar to her, that all my questions would be answered. It is obvious she has much experience as well as a deep love of sharing such a valuable and rewarding healing modality." J.S. from USA
