What is Jin Shin Jyutsu?


Jin Shin Jyutsu is an energy harmonizing modality similar to acupressure in philosophy and practice, except that there is little or no pressure applied.

The body contains specific energetic pathways that feed the body’s 144,000 functions. When these pathways become blocked, discomfort and pain can develop. If not attended to these blocks become chronic creating various “projects”. The gentle touch of Jin Shin Jyutsu opens up the blocks so that the body’s energy can return to its natural state of harmony resulting in the relief of symptoms and deep relaxation.

Jin Shin Jyusu sessions are generally one hour in length. The client lies fully clothed on a padded surface or massage table. The practitioner listens to the pulses of the body to determine the hand positions or “flow patterns” to be utilized. Locations of the energy locks utilized are specific; 26 points on each the right and left side of the body. Points on the spine, the fingers, and the toes may be utilized as well. Accommodation can easily be made for injuries or for individuals who cannot lie comfortably or are confined to wheelchairs or have other specific needs.

Results are different for each individual. However, the benefit experienced by all is a deep relaxation of the body and the mind.
