Q&A: Jin Shin Jyutsu Self Help for Osteoporosis

Question: What flow do you suggest for Ostoporosis diagnosis, a 75 year old woman with 4% bone loss. She has two stents from 2 heart attacks and terrible anaphalactic reactions to bees. But that’s really everything, though the ostoporosis diagnosis was this week so I am upset, what can we do? I studied with Mary years ago at a workshop in NY (1982?) – S

Answer: Hi S, Thanks for your questions. Let’s deal with one thing at a time.

is characterized by the loss of normal density of bone, resulting in fragile bone. It can go undetected for years. Osteoporosis leads to literally abnormally porous bone. This disorder of the skeleton weakens the bone causing an increase in the risk for breaking bones (information by Medicinenet.com)

The good news is that there is a special Jin Shin Jyutsu hold that can help. You can apply it to someone else, or the person can apply it as self help. Do it every day for at least 20 minutes and if possible, 2x a day for at least two weeks and keep going! (This Special Body Function hold is on page 54 of Mary’s Text 2).

The Jin Shin Jyutsu Hold for Osteoporosis: Place Left hand over Left Shoulder ( SEL 11/3) and Right hand on the Left elbow crease (SEL 19). See the diagram.

This hold helps with the conditions of osteoporosis, all arthritic projects, and the heart. It also lubricates the joints, and helps with nearsightedness.

Also, Main Central everyday and even the Trinity Exercises would also help tremendously with all her projects. See older posts Main Central Source of Life and The Trinity

In the case of anaphylactic shock, I resort to THE EMERGENCY HOLD, which is holding the inside of the knees (SEL 1), as well as all the other requirements in an emergency. Safety Energy Lock 1 is called The Prime Mover. It is found on the inside (medial side) of the knees. It connects extreme heights with extreme depths and harmonises us from head to toe because it helps the descending energy (which moves down the front) and the ascending energy (which moves up the back). Use in the case of any EMERGENCY – breathing, vomiting, nausea, shock, stomach cramp etc.

Additional Information: A stent is a small mesh tube that’s used to treat narrowed or weakened arteries in the body and Anaphylaxis is a severe allergic reaction that occurs rapidly and causes a life-threatening response involving the whole body. This reaction can lead to difficulty breathing and shock, so one has to act quickly (see more on medicinenet.com)

Just a few of my favourite foods with High Calcium content: Parsley, Sesame seeds, Almonds, Hazelnuts, Pistachio nuts, dried Figs, Chickpeas, Dark Molasses, Raw Collards and Kale. A lot of these foods like the dried figs also have high Iron content. The list is exhaustive especially of dried spices: basil, marjoram, thyme, dill weed, celery, sage, coriander, fennel seed, cumin seed, cinnamon and others…

About The Author


I started my journey in complementary therapies in 1997 after a successful career in advertising. I began by studying the physical body and received my Diploma in Holistic Aromatherapy from the Tisserand Institute (TIDHA) in London in 1999. Around that time, I had a very interesting experience and became fascinated with the energy in the body. I explored various modalities like Reiki, Spiritual Healing, Shamanism and the like, but felt that I was missing something. Then I discovered the Universal Art of Jin Shin Jyutsu, a hands-on therapy that can be applied by a trained practitioner and also learnt as self help. I suffered from migraines and was amazed that with some simple self help exercises I was able to manage the headaches and then clear them. I became a fully trained Jin Shin Jyutsu Practitioner in 2000 and have been teaching the self help classes since 2001. Over the years I have attended Jin Shin Jyutsu seminars and advanced classes presented by the original instructors that Mary Burmeister herself taught. I live in Wiltshire, England where I offer treatments, talks and self help classes. My role is simply to introduce the awareness of this gentle, yet dynamic Universal Art which is available to each and every one of us to use for our health, wellbeing and longevity.
