Self help hold to beat fatigue and more
I remember the first time I really felt the power of this self help. It’s difficult to describe the kind of exhaustion I felt; I didn’t know what to do with myself. Unfortunately, I wasn’t at home where I could lie down either. I needed to come up with something to get me going again, and I had to do it fast!
A gem of a self help hold
When I placed my hands in the proper position, I immediately felt comforted. Forty minutes later, I was back to feeling myself again, only better. This self help hold really did beat my (temporary) fatigue!
Since then, I have used this hold to help with many projects.
If I wake up in the middle of night and can’t go back to sleep, I will get into this position and that’s the last I am aware of until morning. It’s like a lullaby that lulls you to sleep.
Great for a sore arm
This is also a great hold to practice if you have a sore, or swollen arm.
The self help exercise

Use it to balance energy
You can also use this self help when there is too much energy (waking up at night) or not enough energy (finding it hard to get up).
Mary Burmeister says of this self help hold: “It is supremely powerful. Use with humility and awe.”
Use it to help so many other things
Use this Jin Shin Jyutsu self help hold if you have a tight chest, shortness of breath, allergies, hayfever, cough, heart discomforts, sudden fatigue, to clear congestion in the breast area, to clear a sore or swollen arm…in short, this is what Mary Burmeister calls ‘the most important self help’.
Furthermore, it is said that Mary never really preferred any one hold above another, but she did call this one ‘a little gem’.
