Jin Shin Jyutsu®


The Gentle Art of
Jin Shin Jyutsu Acupressure

Jin Shin Jyutsu's way of explaining how energy moves through our body at different levels and from different aspects is amazing. It explains how the energy comes into our body from the Universe and how we connect with this energy through our breath and how this energy is shared with both sides of our body and our organ meridians. The energy flows teach us that our journey on earth is very similar to the journey of the energies through our body. As within so without. It gives us insight in how we are connected to the numbers and planets in our universe. As above so below. Jin Shin Jyutsu brings a model which explains how our Soul incarnated from Spirit into matter and how it journeys through our lifetime back to Spirit. A journey of transformation. Nothing is permanent. Jin Shin Jyutsu explains how transformation and Creation takes place and leaves us in awe of this perfection, beauty and of how our purpose becomes clear through these teachings.
Personally I would recommend the teachings of Jin Shin Jyutsu to any health practitioner. The benefits of understanding the energy flows through our body and the self-healing instructions, which can be as simple as holding a finger, are a gift which can enhance the practicing of any therapy. Practicing Jin Shin Jyutsu helps you to become more aware of your body. So you can restore the energy flow before stagnation can transform into illness. It helps us to become aware when our life style and attitudes create disharmony in our body.

Jin Shin Jyutsu is a healing art with a history of over 5000 years. It is based upon our own natural, innate ability to harmonize ourselves. For thousands of years, ancient peoples used this awareness to heal both themselves and others.
Jin Shin Jyutsu is a gentle application of hands (over clothing) to re-establish balance and harmony.
Jin Shin Jyutsu employs 26 Safety Energy Locks (SELs) along the energy pathways at each side of the body. Holding these SELs in certain combinations assists in the unblocking of stagnation to allow energy (circulation) to flow evenly again, which helps to restore good functioning and balances body, mind and spirit.


By using your hands as “jumper cables” on a combination of SELs, you recharge and regenerate the body and clear blockages, in much the same way as applying jumper leads to a run-down battery in a motor vehicle.
Jin Shin Jyutsu does not involve massage, manipulation of muscles or use of drugs or substances. It harmonizes and does not have any negative side effects and can be perfectly combined with other medical treatments.

Jin Shin Jyutsu is empowering because it helps you to get to know yourself. Through practicing Jin Shin Jyutsu and understanding the energy pathways within your body you will become more aware of your body, which enables you to recognise stagnation of energy in your body before it becomes an ailment. Jin Shin Jyutsu gives you the easy tools, which can be used anywhere at any time, to restore the energy flow within your body.


 Background information

 Jsj JiroJSJ MaryJin Shin Jyutsu® is a healing art with a history of over 5,000 years and means “the art of the creator through compassionate man”. The healing art that those words represent is based upon our own natural, innate ability to harmonize ourselves. For thousands of years, people have used this awareness to heal both themselves and others.

Over time this awareness was all but forgotten until a Japanese sage named Jiro Murai (see left picture) rediscovered Jin Shin Jyutsu in the early part of the twentieth century. His three key students included Mary Burmeister (a Japanese American, see right picture), her father and Haruki Kato. Mary Burmeister brought the art from Japan to America in 1954 and through her teachings, books and thousands of classes held around the world this awareness continues to grow. Today, over 13,000 practice this art. The main office is in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA.
