The Jin Shin Jyutsu® method recognizes 26 "safety energy locks" located at various points along the energy meridian system of the body. If any of the meridian pathways become blocked, disharmony occurs, resulting in imbalance, tension, and reduction of vital energy.
Holding the fingers to specific combinations of these "safety energy locks" releases the flow of energy and restores harmony and balance to the energy meridian system.
Jin Shin Jyutsu® is based on a formalization of energy healing traditions in Japan. Jin means "Art," Shin means "Creator," and Jyutsu means "man of knowing and compassion."
Jin Shin Jyutsu® was founded by Master Jiro Murai in the 1900s. After being diagnosed with a terminal illness at 26-years-old, Murai was able to restore his health through the study of ancient energy healing traditions in Japan and the Kojiki (Record of Ancient Things).
Mary Burmeister, who apprenticed with Murai, brought Jin Shin Jyutsu® to North America in the 1950s.
Jin Shin Jyutsu® practitioners gently place their fingertips (over clothing) on any number of the twenty-six designated "safety energy locks" to harmonize and restore energy flow.
The placement of fingertips at these locations acts as a "jumper cable" between these points and facilitates the reduction of tension and stress that accumulate through normal daily living.
Jin Shin Jyutsu® is a whole-body treatment that can help reduce stress and tension and restore harmony and balance to the body's energy system.
A level of training that includes every competency component needed to safely and appropriately apply the treatment.
An additional treatment that first requires the practitioners to be trained in an appropriate related discipline.
