Jin Shin Jyutsu
Jin Shin Jyutsu® is a gentle and profoundly powerful healing art whose roots derive from ancient Eastern medicine and universal wisdom. Said to predate Buddha and Moses, it was rediscovered in the early 1900s by Master Jiro Murai in Japan. Having successfully utilized this art to recover from a "terminal" illness, Master Murai devoted himself to the study and revival of this art for future generations. His American student, Mary Iino Burmeister, brought this art to the United States. Its study and practice has spread around the world.
Jin Shin Jyutsu unlocks our innate ability to heal ourselves by restoring balance to the various energetic pathways which circulate throughout our bodies. The pathways (or flows) feed life into all of our cells. The flows build, protect, and repair all aspects of Being. When one or more of these pathways becomes blocked, the damming effect may lead to pain or illness. When the energies of these pathways are in harmony, health of body-mind-spirit is profoundly enhanced.
Jin Shin Jyutsu helps one's immune system to work at its highest potential. Therefore, discomfort or pain in any of the body's functions is alleviated. Examples of issues that may be helped include headaches, muscle pain, injuries, digestive problems, depression, allergies, etc.
This gentle art is practiced by placing fingertips (over clothing) on designated areas of the body in various sequences to harmonize and restore correct energy flow. The client rests on a massage table while the practitioner works with flows appropriate to the client's needs.
