Jin Shin Jyutsu®







Jin Shin Jyutsu® was rediscovered in Japan in the early 1900’s by Master Jiro Murai. 
Master Murai defined Jin Shin Jyutsu® as “the Art of the Creator expressed through the person of compassion”.  He taught this art to Mary Burmeister who brought it to the U.S. in the 1950’s. To learn more about Master Jiro Murai click here.

Jin Shin Jyutsu® is an invaluable complement to conventional healing methods, inducing relaxation, reducing the effects of stress, and assisting our innate healing capacity.

While bearing conceptual similarities with acupuncture and acupressure, Jin Shin Jyutsu® is an exceptionally gentle, non-invasive energetic healing modality that does not use needles or pressure to realize the potential benefits.

How does Jin Shin Jyutsu® work? 

Our bodies contain energy pathways (meridians) that feed life into all cells. When one or more of these paths become blocked, the damming effect can lead to disharmony, manifested as discomfort or illness.

Deficiencies, over-stimulation, blockages and stagnation can develop in these energy pathways in response to various factors including lifestyle stresses, attitudes, environmental influences, illness and traumatic events.

To unblock and stimulate the circulation of energy along the affected meridian, the Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner applies a series of hand placement combinations using 52 energy centers on the body called “Safety Energy Locks” (26 on each side of the body), restoring harmony to body, mind and spirit.
