Jin Shin Jyutsu

Literally defined, Jin Shin Jyutsu is the Art of the Creator expressed through knowing and compassionate man. There are two important distinctions between Jin Shin Jyutsu and many other massage and oriental healing modalities to which it is often compared.

First, Jin Shin Jyutsu is an art, as opposed to a technique; a technique is a mechanical application, whereas an art is a skillful creation. Second, Jin Shin Jyutsu is not a physical manipulation of tissue and uses only minimal pressure. The hands are used as "jumper cables," contacting 26 "safety energy locks" to redirect, or unblock the flow of energy along its pathways.

A practitioner of Jin Shin Jyutsu is not the "do-er", s/he simply assists in the flow of an infinite supply of universal energy. This process does not affect the practitioner's personal supply of energy. In a typical Jin Shin Jyutsu session, which lasts about one hour, the receiver remains clothed and lies face- up on a cushioned surface. After "listening" to the energy pulses in the wrists, a practitioner employs a harmonizing sequence, or "flow," appropriate for unblocking particular pathways and restoring the energy to the energy rhythm of the universe.

A "flow" is a series of hand placement combinations (using the "safety energy locks") that stimulates circulation of energy along a given pathway. There are many such pathways in the body, each with a distinct function or essence.

To a certain extent, the experience of Jin Shin Jyutsu is unique to each person for each session. However, the most common effect is that of deep relaxation. Who among us doesn't welcome any opportunity to let go of stress, which so often interferes with optimum health?

Mary Burmeister, a close student of Master Murai, brought the gift of Jin Shin Jyutsu to America upon returning from Japan in the 1950's. Jin Shin Jyutsu changed my life after receiving one session.
