Question: Hello I have the book on Jin Shin Jyutsu for the last year by my bed. It has been very helpful for my own pains. But I have a question about a friend of mine and I guess the general question is ‘JSJ will help on obnoxious behaviors’? My friend has a personality that is annoying for a lot of people. Always talks, does not listen. Always worried , very nervous, obsessively clean, always doing something, monothematic, she can only see the details, she suffers from scleroderma, She will not get any help but she likes JSJ , it has help her in several pains that she has had. Thank you and I hope this is not too big of a question… Thanks

Answer: Your friend has a lot to deal with, but don’t despair, there is a lot of help available with Jin Shin Jyutsu!

The first thing is to make sure that the crossing energies are not overloaded – when people strongly react to everything there are a lot of ATTITUDES (and low energy). The first thing that needs to be worked on is the MEDIATOR energy. The flow is on page 53 of Jin Shin Jyutsu Text 1. She also needs to do the self-help version of Mediator which is the following exercise: Knees together, then right hand on left shoulder, and left hand – place the thumb over the left ring finger nail to form a circle. For the other side: Knees together, then left hand on right shoulder, and right hand – place the thumb over the left ring finger nail to form a circle. (see Self-help book 1 page 19).

I also suggest the following flows which she can do as self-help: the TRINITY – which is made up of the Main Central (the self help version is on this Blog), Left and Right Supervisor (Self help: hold opposite 11 + same side 15, and hold opposite 11 + same side 25). And the MEDIATOR flow as above.

Also, getting into the habit of holding her fingers one by one every day will help harmonise her whole being.

I will post some suggestions for scleroderma separately in the next day or two.

I hope this is helpful. Let me know how she gets on! – AK
