Heal Yourself with Jin Shin Jyutsu

Did You Know…that you can heal yourself with a simple, free at-home remedy that stops pain, reduces anxiety, and prevents illness?

Jin Shin Jyutsu is an ancient Japanese healing art.  This simple hands-on technique releases tension in the body to alleviate pain and restore health.  Modern science confirms that stored bodily tension can block the pathways that nourish cellular life and vitality, leading to pain and illness.

Anyone can apply Jin Shin Jyutsu to him or herself at home to reduce pain and boost health.  It takes just a bit of knowledge and practice to harmonize the life energy in your body using your own fingertips.

The Journey From East to West 

Written records in the Archives of the Imperial Palace in Japan show that Jin Shin Jyutsu was widely used long before the birth of…

Gautama (Buddha, India)
Moses (recorded in the Bible)
Kojiki (Record of Ancient Things, Japan, A.D. 712)

Early in the 20th century, Jin Shin Jyutsu was rediscovered by Master Jiro Murai.  Then in the 1950s, Mary Burmeister, a student of Master Jiro Murai’s, brought this healing art from Japan to the United States.

Today, Jin Shin Jyutsu is still not nearly as well known in the West as other energy healing modalities such as acupuncture and acupressure.  However, it works according to similar principals, focusing on a set of 26 points along the energy pathways of the body.  Known as safety energy locks, these points are the places in the body where energy tends to get stuck.

Skip the Medicine Cabinet and Use Your Hands 

The demands and stresses of modern life have many of us reaching for the medicine cabinet to treat daily aches, pains, and illnesses.  Often, however, minor maladies can be more easily and effectively healed without pills.

And even in cases where medication is truly necessary, Jin Shin Jyutsu can offer a valuable complement to traditional therapies.

Below are four simple Jin Shin Jyutsu techniques, with many more readily available online:

  • Anxiety: To calm nerves and quell anxiety, hold the last 3 fingers of your hand (on either side).  Do this whenever you are nervous about an impending meeting, procedure, or conversation—or simply for general anxiety.
  • Energy: To boost energy and combat fatigue, simply sit on your hands, palms up, for 10 minutes.  This technique can also be performed lying down.  Added bonus: this method may also help reduce cellulite by stimulating the release of toxins.
  • Tummy troubles: To soothe stomachaches and reduce gas, hold your thumbs, one at a time.  Added bonus: this technique can also ease worry.
  • Cancer Prevention: To strengthen your defenses against cancer and boost overall immune function, place the fingers of both hands on your breast bone (sternum).  Perform this technique for a few minutes every day.
