JIN SHIN JYUTSU literally translated is:
JYUTSU – Art
SHIN – Creator
JIN – Man of Knowing and Compassion
(Art of the Creator through man of knowing and compassion)
JIN SHIN JYUTSU is the Art of releasing tensions which are the causes for various symptoms in the body. Jin Shin Jyutsu works under the theory that there exists a life energy that fills the universe and gives life to all things. In the human form, as with all animals, there exists, energy pathways called meridians. It is believed that disharmony in the mind, body and spirit is caused by a disruption in the flow of energy within these meridians. The goal of the JSJ practitioner is to clear blockages in order to encourage a free flow of energy through this vast and beautiful network of energetic pathways, thus bringing the body back into balance enabling the body to heal.
Along these pathways are small areas that in JSJ we call, safety energy locks. These safety energy locks are energetic access points, so to speak. The JSJ practitioner accesses specific energy locks through static, light touch, in a specific sequence according to the clients needs.
Mary Burmeister playfully referred to our hands as ‘jumper cables’. Every finger houses a different meridian, making the hands a particularly powerful source of concentrated energy. So we all have this power to heal in our hands, yet it becomes even more powerful when coupled with focused intent and educated experience.
