What is Jin Shin Jyutsu?
Jin Shin Jyutsu is a healing art with a history of over 5,000 years. It is based on our own natural, innate ability to harmonise ourselves. For thousands of years ancient peoples have used this awareness to heal both themselves and others.
Jin Shin Jyutsu is the ancient art of balancing the body’s energy system, which facilitates healing and restores the body to a more harmonious state of being. Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioners use their hands to gently balance the flow of life energy in the patient’s body.
It complements conventional healing methods. The body contains pathways that feed life energy into all cells and functions. The stresses of daily life – habits, emotions, illness and physical activity – add up over time. They can have adverse effects on the natural flow of energy along these pathways. When one or more of these pathways becomes blocked, it can lead to general discomfort in the local area or elsewhere in the body, resulting in physical and/or emotional symptoms.
The art of Jin Shin Jyutsu clears the blocks in these energetic pathways, returning them to a more harmonious state.
What happens during a Jin Shin Jyutsu session?
A typical Jin Shin Jyutsu session lasts about one hour. The patient lies face-up on a comfortable, cushioned surface and stays fully clothed. The practitioner begins the session by “listening” to the energetic pulses in the wrist area. These pulses reveal information about the current state of the body’s energetic system and help pinpoint the areas of stress or disharmony.
During treatment, the practitioner gently holds specific areas on the body called “safety energy locks” (similar to acupressure points) in various hand placement combinations known as “flows.”
These flows help unblock pathways, restoring the body to a state of harmony. There is no massage or physical manipulation of the body. The touch is light with very little pressure.
The practitioner will suggest self-help techniques for the patient to perform between sessions for further harmonizing. Self-help may be performed as needed and has no adverse side effects.
The experience of Jin Shin Jyutsu is unique to each individual and to each session. The most commonly reported effect is a feeling of deep relaxation of both the body and mind during and after the treatment. At times, the body may produce soft bubbling sounds that are simply a response to the body’s release of tension. Jin Shin Jyutsu’s most pronounced effects are felt within the first eight hours of a completed session.
Further long-term effects may be experienced and are unique to the individual.
