KNOW where to put our hands

Even if you’ve never heard of the universal art of Jin Shin Jyutsu, we often naturally place our hands unconsciously on our body when we need help in a certain area. Isn’t it therefore great to consciously KNOW where to put our hands to HELP MYSELF?


This is a quick summary of the relationship between the fingers, the corresponding key energy site and attitude:

Finger / Energy Site* / (SEL) /Attitude (Emotion)

*there is an SEL or energy site on the left side and a mirror image on the right side

Thumb / Forehead above the eyebrows / SEL 20 / Harmonises WORRY

Index / Just below the collarbone / SEL 22 / Harmonises FEAR

Middle / Third rib down on the chest / SEL 13 / Harmonises ANGER

Ring / Last rib before the abdomen / SEL 14 / Harmonises GRIEF

Little / Groin either side of pubic bone / SEL 15 / Harmonises TRYING TO or ‘Efforting’

Jin Shin Jyutsu Self Help Session

For a full Jin Shin Jyutsu Self help session you could spend a whole hour holding these five energy sites placing the left hand on the left side, and the right hand on the right side (it means spending about 10 minutes on each energy site). 

A great way to start or end the day!
