What is Jin Shin Jyutsu® (pronounced “jin shin jitsu”)?

Chinese charactersThe Art of Jin Shin Jyutsu® Physio-Philosophy (JSJ) helps the body return to a harmonious state and provides relief from physical and emotional conditions. Jin Shin Jyutsu® also facilitates everyone’s inherent ability to heal, making it a valuable complement when used with Western medical methods, inducing relaxation and reducing the effects of stress.
Jin Shin Jyutsu® is a gentle healing art. It comes from ancient tradition that works with the vibratory pathways that feed life to the cells in the body. When one or more of these pathways become blocked or weakened, it leads to an imbalance of physical, mental and /or emotional well-being. It is known that systems which deal with the body’s vibrational energy – acupuncture for example – were fully developed medical systems over 5000 years ago. The Kojiki (Record of Ancient Things – Japan 712AD), housed in the archives of the Imperial Palace in Japan contains the earliest written records of Jin Shin Jyutsu®. The art of Jin Shin Jyutsu® was revived by Master Jiro Murai in Japan at the beginning of the 20th century. It was brought as a gift to the United States by his long-time student Mary Burmeister in the 1950s. There are now many practitioners and students around the world.

Jin Shin Jyutsu® is an adjunct and partner to western medicine. Gail, owner of Key Elements for health, offers a prime example. A few years ago Gail’s appendix ruptured. She went to the hospital and the doctor operated, removing the appendix. She then used self-care routines and received sessions from Jin Shin Jyutsu® practitioners to help herself heal more quickly.

Jin Shin Jyutsu® can be used to help the body cope with ‘medical procedures’ and is particularly powerful pre- and post- surgery.  It can also assist in your journey toward optimal health.
