What To Expect

How can Jin Shin Jyutsu® help you?

JSJ is the ancient Japanese Art of releasing tensions which cause various symptoms in the body. It is effective for the treatment of all conditions as a complementary therapy. Practicing JSJ Self Help will engrain the philosophy of living effortlessly, just BEing. Jin Shin Jyutsu® engages 26 ‘safety energy locks’ along a network of energy pathways that nourish life within the body. Blocked energy locks cause disharmony ranging from a simple headache to projects such as cancer. We had great results working with adults and children with various problems and projects such as sinus disorders, high/low blood pressure, back problems, migraines, stomach, sleep disorders, neck, jaw, whiplash, irregular menstrual cycles, autism, ear infections, depression, behavioural disorders, broken bones, pre and post surgery, MS, stroke, circulation problems, pre-post natal,fertility issues, Parkinson’s, senility, panic attack, muscular pain and stress. For those without ailment,receiving regular sessions keeps the mind in harmony releasing ‘stuck’ behaviour patterns and releasing tensions which in turn helps to prevent illness. JSJ is not meant to replace conventional health care.

Jin Shin Jyutsu® does not involve massage, manipulation of bones or muscles. You will lie face up on the massage table fully clothed. After observing the body we will listen to the pulse at the wrist, fingertips are then placed over clothing in specific combinations. This is called jumper cabling.

As energy shifts, you may find yourself drifting off to sleep. When finished you will have time to rest.

Allow 90 min for the treatment. Some children may require less time. You may be given ‘self help’ to practice at home which will complement your session.

According to the record of ancient things in JAPAN —The Kojiki, written in 712 AD, contains the earliest written record of JSJ. Jin Shin Jyutsu® literally translated means ‘The Art of the Creator through Compassionate Man’. Through the studies and dedication of philosopher and teacher Master Jiro Murai, the ancient art was revived and this precious gift was brought to the west by his student, Mary Burmeister.
