Jin Shin Jyutsu®

Art of Living

"Happiness is a measure of our HARMONY"

-Mary Burmeister

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 Physio-Philosophy is an ancient healing art used to balance the breath and heal on all levels.  It introduces us to ourselves and teaches us that we have the innate ability to harmonize and balance body, mind, and spirit.  

Our bodies contain several energy pathways, similar to acupuncture meridians, as well as 26 energy points on each side of the body known as Safety Energy Locks (SELs).  When these pathways become blocked by the stress of our daily lives, the energy cannot flow properly and becomes stuck at the SELs.  That stuck energy manifests as physical/emotional symptoms or projects.

Sessions generally last about one hour while the receiver lies face-up, fully clothed, on a massage table.  After "listening" to the energy pulses in the wrists, the practitioner's hands are used as "jumper cables," gently holding combinations of the 26 SELs in different sequences to unlock the energy flow.

Master Jiro Murai rediscovered Jin Shin Jyutsu, which helped him recover from a terminal illness, in the early 1900s.  His student, Mary Burmeister, brought the art to America in the 1950s.  Today, this healing art is taught and practiced all over the world.

How Can Jin Shin Jyutsu Help?

Jin Shin Jyutsu harmonizes the breath, which is essential to life.  All disharmony is caused by the inability to either inhale or exhale fully.  Because this is such a gentle art which does not require any physical tissue manipulation, it is considered safe for everyone.  Below is a small sample of projects Jin Shin Jyutsu can benefit:

  • Immune System Booster

  • Skin Projects (acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns)

  • Respiratory Projects (asthma, sinuses, allergies)

  • Digestive Projects (diverticulitis, constipation, any assimilation or elimination issues)

  • Sleep Projects (insomnia, apnea, night terrors, snoring)

  • Addiction

  • Migraines

  • Anger Issues

  • Depression and Emotional Distress

  • Arthritis

  • Aches and Pains (arm/shoulder, leg/hip, neck, back)

  • Stress and Anxiety

  • Chronic Fatigue

  • Increased Energy and Mental Clarity

  • Spinal Injuries

  • Much, Much More. . . 

Simple Self-Help for Main Central Flow

The Main Central Flow is a great flow to begin your end your day with.  As you breath travels down the front of your body and up the back, this flow helps to balance the energy flow. Each step can be used individually to help specific concerns (like memory, immune support, or metabolism) or work through each step in turn to balance the whole body.

What is a Project?

In Jin Shin Jyutsu, we avoid the word "Problem" and instead say "Project."  A project is something you can take steps to solve or complete.  In this case, it is a journey you take toward wellness.  We also avoid diagnostic labels because that is just the name of a group of symptoms.  The goal of Jin Shin Jyutsu is not to treat symptoms, but to get to the underlying root cause so the symptoms don't keep returning or progressing.

As with any project, results may take time.  Some people do experience drastic results after just one or two sessions, but it is a cumulative art.  So the more often you receive sessions, and the more self-help you do, the better your results will be.  For more serious or chronic projects, it is recommended to get 2-3 sessions per week for the first few weeks.  Then you can spread them out a little more for maintenance.


"The best way to understand why a disharmony recurs after consistent treatment is to go to the attitudes.  The attitudes are at the bottom of everything."

--Mary Burmeister

Get rid of Worry F.A.S.T

Hold your fingers to dissolve and harmonize your attitudes.

To harmonize the whole body, including all the attitudes, take 36 conscious deep breaths every day:

Hold each finger on each hand for 3 breaths.  Then hold each palm for 3 breaths.
