About Jin Shin Jyutsu

Jin Shin Jyutsu , physio-philosophy, is an ancient art of harmonizing the life energy in the body. Jin Shin Jyutsu brings balance to the body’s energy, which promotes optimal health and well-being, and facilitates our own profound healing capacity. It is a valuable complement to conventional healing methods, inducing relaxation and reducing the effects of stress.

Through Jin Shin Jyutsu our awareness and understanding are awakened to the knowledge that we are all endowed with the ability to harmonize and balance ourselves-spiritually, mentally and physically. This beautiful, simple art is our inheritance. Our hands are used as our built-in “jumper cables” to energize the body’s run-down battery. This enables us to help ourselves and those who are in need of help.

For those of us addressing existing stress or health disharmonies, or for those simply wishing to participate actively in maintaining health, harmony, and well-being, the Art of Jin Shin Jyutsu® is a simple and powerful tool, available to us all.

A Typical Session

Each session lasts approximately an hour. The accupressure points (or “Safety Energy Locks”) are held over clothing in a series of flows that open energy pathways. These pathways can become disharmonized through emotions, injury, heredity, diet, etc. “Problems” become “projects” as FEAR (“False Evidences Appearing Real”) becomes FUN (Fulfillment, Understanding, No-thing).

Each session is individualized based on pulse listening, body reading, and client requests. Self-help techniques may be given at the end of the session to continue the body’s healing process.

My Experience

I have been studying Jin Shin Jyutsu since 1991. Since that time I have taken seminars with the following teachers: Susan Brooks, Cynthia Lenssen Broshi, Muriel Carlton, Philomena Dooley, Wayne Hackett, Matthias Roth, and Jed Schwartz. I have also taken a variety of “Special Topics” classes, and I was fortunate to be able to attend the unique course taught by Haruki Kato “Sensei” held in Hawaii, 2002.

I have taken part in several study groups under Susan Brooks, Muriel Carlton, and Philomena Dooley. In addition to my Jin Shin Jyutsu course certificate, I have the “Living the Art” certificate for teaching “Self-Help” classes. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and love for Jin Shin Jyutsu and deeply respect this gift.

Favorite Quotes

From Mary Burmeister:

We need never know FATIGUE. Energy can never TIRE. It is our PERSONAL imbalance that causes fatigue. When our 26 “safety” Energy Locks are unlocked, we are in a state of ECSTASY-the SECRET of the fountain of youth, available equally to all eternally-that which was, is and shall be, IS. The MASTER KEY is our degree of desire and trust, the KNOWING. The SIMPLE reason for perfect health and happiness is being master of anything we do-LOVE IT regardless of what it is-menial, boring or inspirational work. There should be no person or thing one dislikes-as hatred develops imbalance, which causes Fatigue. HAPPINESS is an indication of our HARMONY. We are all created equally. We have our TWO HANDS as our REJUVENATORS and HARMONIZERS. With these two hands we have the privilege of helping ourselves and others to get in tune with the universe. Hands are generators of the Creator Power-not from within us, but a part of the ever constant and forever balanced universal SUPPLY. We need only be AWARE of this supply. (Text I, 1979 edition)

At the heart of each of us exists a silent pulse of perfect rhythm.

My mind is open, wherever I am, I am simply beginning. Thank you, God. Thank you.

It is as it is, and as it is, it is. To DO, Just BE.

No comparisons, not even with myself.

God be my teacher, God be my Do-er, thank you God, thank you for this beautiful body.

Other quotes from other folks:

Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart-try to love the questions themselves like locked rooms and like books that are written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer. (Rilke)

There’s a common misunderstanding among all human beings who have ever been born on earth that the best way to live is to try and avoid pain and just try to get comfortable…A much more interesting, kind, adventurous, and joyful approach to life is to develop our curiosity, not caring whether the object of our inquisitiveness is bitter or sweet. (Pema Chödron)

Since all things are naked, clear from obscurations, there is nothing to attain or realize. The everyday practice is simply to develop a complete acceptance and openness to all situations and emotions and to all people, experiencing everything totally without reservations or blockages, so that one never withdraws or centralizes into oneself. (Trungpa Rinpoche)

Place the fearful mind in the cradle of loving kindness. (Pema Chödron)

All healing is essentially the release from fear.

For those who have hurt me, knowingly or unknowingly in thought, word, or deed, I freely forgive.
And for those whom I have hurt, knowingly or unknowingly in thought, word, or deed, I ask forgiveness.
May I be happy, may I be peaceful, may I be free.
May my friends be happy, may my friends be peaceful, may my friends be free.
May my enemies be happy, may my enemies be peaceful, may my enemies be free.
May all beings be happy, may all beings be peaceful, may all beings be free. (Buddhist prayer)
