A special energy function to ease pain
This Jin Shin Jyutsu hold is dynamic first aid for pain relief. There have been many incidents when I have managed and controlled pain just by knowing where to place my hands on the body. It constantly amazes me that such a simple hold can have such a dramatic and speedy effect.
Also works on the deep energy and helps reduce inflammation
This is because the placement of the hands in this way helps a special energy function that travels throughout the body. It also supports the deep energy in the body so it is wonderfully calming and soothing. Even better is the fact that this energy function helps reduce inflammation in the body. Considering that inflammation is now established to underlie many medical conditions, this is good news.**
A dramatic personal experience
Below is one of my most dramatic and personal experiences of pain relief:
My father was in hospital and had just come out of surgery when I got to his bedside. The anaesthetic was wearing off and he was in much pain. His face was all contorted and he was hanging on for dear life to the side rails of his bed.
I went straight for his right foot. I gently placed my hands there, without any pressure, without any massage.
Within a few moments (literally) my father opened his eyes, exhaled, and said: “Yes, that’s definitely better.” I’ll never forget the look of utter relief on his face.
