Jin Shin Jyutsu Finger Holds

Nearly 100 years ago, a man called Jiro Murai was pronounced terminally ill in Japan. He was only 26, but he asked his family to take him up to their mountain cabin for seven days. There, he practiced various finger holds. He discovered a self help that works, that’s as easy as holding a finger. After seven days, he was completely healed. He got down on his knees, thanked his Creator, and vowed to dedicate his life to the study of what he called Jin Shin Jyutsu. These Jin Shin Jyutsu finger holds are the basis of self help.

The effect of Jin Shin Jyutsu finger holds is cumulative

The good news is that the effect of the Jin Shin Jyutsu finger holds over time is cumulative. The more you hold your fingers, the more you’ll feel the positive effects. Feel calmer, have more energy, balance your emotions – just by holding the thumbs and fingers.

How to hold the thumb and each finger? See the links below to harmonize each corresponding ATTITUDE (or ‘stuck’ emotion):

I’m missing a finger…

If a digit or indeed the whole hand is missing, then one can work on the energy. The energy is still there. So if there is a prosthetic hand, one can hold each prosthetic thumb and finger. Same as with a regular hand. Isn’t that clever?
