Jin Shin Jyutsu Is actually an ancient healing practice, rediscovered by Master Jiro Murai, a Japanese healer and philosopher.
Mary Burmeister, a Japanese American, met Murai in Japan in the late 1940´s and became his student. Burmeister´s explanation for the depth and power of Jin Shin Jyutsu is that it affects the
attitudes that lie beneath our symptoms, not just the symptoms themselves.
This practice has a set of 26 points (called Safety Energy Locks or SELs) along energy pathways. When a pathway becomes blocked, energy stagnates, and has the potential to create imbalance along the entire pathway.
A Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner uses both hands (referred to as “jumper cables”) to hold a combination of SELs.
The simplicity and gentleness of the process allow clients to relax and receive the work. As the SELs release and
balance is restored, the client experiences physical, mental and spiritual harmony.
One of its great advantages is that one can easily learn simple self-help techniques that supplement sessions from a practitioner.
