Dis-harmony. Dis-comfort. Pain. Dis-ease. A way to look at all of these labels is to recognise that they are the (in many cases longterm) effect of TENSION. Tension manifests itself in many different ways. I had a client years ago who had been told she had breast cancer. She was terrified. She had had surgery, and was still terrified of what was going to happen to her and what ‘they’ were going to do to her. The first treatment I gave her was incredible. I hardly touched her and her whole body shook uncontrollably. There was SO much tension to be released. I felt so sorry for her. After a few minutes of this shaking I got the feeling to go to her feet. I started massaging them. Her shaking immediately stopped and so I kept going. She relaxed (finally!). Next treatment there was less shaking.

Going to the feet (SEL 5, 6, 7, 16, and 24 are found in the feet) helps to move the energy DOWN. I would have also had a positive effect if I had just held SEL 7s (on the big toes), but because the tension was so acute I needed to have my hands everywhere on her feet and toes. Also, I remembered that once, when I woke up from a bad dream (very unusual for me), I was shaking – an internal shaking like shock. I immediately went to the SEL 24s to harmonise the CHAOS, and immediately it worked! So mothers, remember the 24s for your children when they have bad dreams. It’s also why going to the feet helped my client with acute muscle tension. The energy site number 24 is found down from the ankle on the top of the foot down from the little toe –

Tension can be physical, emotional, mental. And one level can carry and many times does carry into another level. Jin Shin Jyutsu is about releasing tensions – when you release tension you breathe more easily and you HARMONISE. As simple as that.

So, easy way to clean away tension is to do these JSJ exercises every day (see link to older post).
