Relieve Depression with Easy Jin Shin Jyutsu Hold
Life can be hard sometimes. When it feels like that, it’s no fun. There are many reasons, of course, why we might feel blue or down in the dumps. The good news is that you can do this easy Jin Shin Jyutsu hold if you are suffering from depression. Use it to soothe you, to lift your spirits!
Exhaustion is a big good mood vampire; it can cause a lack of joy, a lack of enthusiasm for life. In this case it would also greatly help to revitalise the body. Moreover, when the energy is ‘stuck’ it helps to get more ‘flow’ going.
Luckily, we have a system that helps us recharge our rundown batteries. Even better news: we come with the ‘jumper cables’ attached! Those jumper cables are our wonderful hands.
Our batteries come with jumper cables attached
We have 26 pairs of energy sites on the body called Safety Energy Locks (SELs). Those 26 SELs are our batteries. We can recharge them by placing our hands on them.
Each of these Safety Energy Locks are found on a specific location on the body. They also each have a meaning and a function. Together, our system of 26 SELs can help us on all levels: mentally, emotionally, digestively, physically and spiritually. That is because they encompass all of our human experience.
Two Safety Energy Locks to ease depression
There are two Safety Energy Locks that we can employ to ease despondency and depression. These two wonderful little ‘batteries’ can help us get back into our FLOW, to BE happy and content wherever, and whenever we are.

You can hold as long as you like, or until you feel relief. Practice as often as you like during the day. If it feels good, keep doing it!
