Jin Shin Jyutsu®

Jin Shin Jyutsu® (JSJ) is the art of releasing tensions that cause various discomforts in the body. The body contains several energy pathways that feed life into all of our cells. When one or more of these pathways become blocked it causes a damming effect that may lead to discomfort or pain. This blockage or stagnation in the flow of energy will not only disrupt the local area, it will continue and eventually cause disharmony in the path of the energy flow.

JSJ is a clothes-on hands-on form of treatment and can be understood as a gentle form of accupressure. It regards the hands as ‘jumper cables’ which help overcome the blockages by transferring energy from the Eternal Source of Life to the body by touching different areas along the energy pathways in different sequences, so called flows. The literal meaning of the three Japanese words is:
Jin: human being
Shin: creator
Jyutsu: art

JSJ treatments are generally given to a client lying on their back. However, treatments can be adapted if needed. Usually, JSJ treatments are experienced as very relaxing; sometimes they can feel profoundly transforming. If clients seek help for a long standing health issue, a series of treatments may be needed to achieve and maintain a healthy, harmonious flow of energy. The application of self help exercises will greatly assist this process of harmonizing.

JSJ treatments for healthy adults are normally scheduled for 60 minutes; in combination with Access Bars® or Sound Therapy, 90 minutes would be recommended. For children and frail adults, only 30 minutes are recommended.

Self help

Simple sequences of JSJ self help holds can be learned in a hands on workshop. The beauty of JSJ is that it works with palm sized energy centres rather than difficult to find points on the body. It is therefore easy to learn and apply. The Art of JSJ self care can enhance the quality of life tremendously.
