Jin Shin Jyutsu is an ancient Japanese healing practice that can reduce stress and anxiety, alleviate discomfort, boost the immune and circulatory systems, calm the nervous system, and enhance overall health and wellness. A one hour session usually consists of a client lying on their back on a massage table for the entire time. Clients are fully dressed. The practitioner places their hands lightly on up to 26 different locations on both sides of the body to release tension and stress. There is no massage or manipulation of muscle or tissue.
It is worth noting that Jin Shin Jyutsu is being utilized in hospitals before and after surgery to help patients heal more quickly and with less discomfort. It is also being utilized to assist cancer patients with the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation, while decreasing stress, and enhancing emotional well-being.
Another fabulous benefit of Jin Shin Jyutsu is the ability to learn how to sustain oneself by being taught Self-help. You will learn about the power of our hands, fingers, and breath. Each finger corresponds to a specific attitude and different parts of our bodies. What attitudes/emotions can Jin Shin Jyutsu help calm? Worry, Fear, Anger, Grief and Sadness, Pretense and “Trying-To”, while also nurturing feelings of Peace and Well-being. The beauty of Self-help is that it can be done anytime or anywhere because it is so discreet.
