The Art of Jin Shin Jyutsu Physio-Philosophy
What is the Art of Jin Shin?

Jin Shin Jyutsu® physio-philosophy is an Art of harmonizing the life energy in the body by using the fingers and hands (over clothing) on specific energy sites. The principles of this Art are as old as mankind, researched and developed in Japan about 100 years ago by Master Jiro Murai. I often describe it as ‘Acupuncture with the fingers’ but no pressure, massage or manipulation of the muscles is necessary.

It alleviates stress/tensions, eliminates fatigue, relieves pain, balances emotions, boosts the immune system and promotes mental alertness. The treatment is a pleasurable experience, generally one of deep relaxation, and the benefits are usually felt immediately.

26 Energy Sites called Safety Energy Locks

Jin Shin Jyutsu employs 26 energy sites or ‘safety energy locks’ along energy pathways that feed life into our bodies. When one or more of the paths become blocked, the resulting stagnation can disrupt the local area and eventually dis-harmonise the complete path of energy flow. Holding these energy locks in combination can bring balance to mind, body, and spirit.

What Can Jin Shin Jyutsu Help With?

Jin Shin Jyutsu releases tensions and acts as a deep cleaner: it detoxifies, re-balances and re-generates the whole being. As there are no contraindications, it is safe for children, pregnant mothers, the elderly and infirm. It is also a great support for people on medication and those undergoing cancer or other treatments. It can alleviate stress-related conditions and I have found it particularly helpful for dealing with physical and mental exhaustion, a run-down immune system, anxieties, as well as pain and discomfort.

I became interested in Jin Shin Jyutsu after using some simple self help exercises to clear my migraine headaches in 1998. I am a trained Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner and have shared my passion and knowledge of this Art since 2001 via treatments, talks and self help classes.

What some of my clients say after treatments
“I feel so refreshed” “The pain is gone”
“I slept very well last night” “I feel more energetic”
“Colours look so vivid now” “I feel cleansed”
“I feel calmer and more mentally alert”

Jin Shin Jyutsu can be applied by a practitioner or as self help.
