The Healing Art of Jin Shin Jyutsu
The body contains energy pathways that feed life into all of the cells. When one or more of these pathways become blocked, the effect can lead to discomfort, pain, illness and injury. Jin Shin Jyutsu (pronounced Gin Shin Jitsu) a Japanese form of acupressure, helps release the tensions that cause these various physical symptoms. By gently applying the hands to a clients’ fully clothed body, Jin Shin Jyutsu re-harmonizes and balances the energy flows. This aids in healing, promotes optimal health and helps the client to feel better. The practice of Jin Shin Jyutsu naturally addresses any latent emotions which could be hindering physical healing.
Self-care is a beautiful piece of Jin Shin Jyutsu. By developing an awareness of the life force within yourself, you can learn to harmonize your mind, body & spirit. Your hands are your jumper cables and by holding your fingers, toes or utilizing simple flows you can easily become more responsible and engaged in maintaining your own health, balance and happiness. For example, if you have a stomach-ache or are overcome by worry hold your thumb and breathe deeply. Both symptoms will melt away.
