What is Jin Shin Jyutsu®?Many people are now familiar with Acupuncture and Acupressure, based on ancient Traditional Chinese Medicine. Acupuncture uses very fine needles, and Acupressure uses touch, to access the life force energy called chi.
The chi is accessible because it flows in rivers, called meridians, that are close to the surface of the body. Jin Shin Jyutsu (JSJ) acknowledges this and goes deeper. JSJ accesses the chi through 26 bilateral “safety energy locks” considered major energy circuits of the body.
Safety energy locks (SEL) are main intersections of energy that function like the circuit breakers on your house. When overloaded, they shut down, so the house won’t burn. When the body is stressed or injured, the safety energy locks get blocked. If the blockage continues for a long period of time, the SEL shuts down.
Gentle touch in specialized sequences over clothing harmonizes the safety energy locks, restoring the circulation of vital energy. Maintaining proper energy flow is the key to eliminating the cause of imbalances before they become dis-ease, and is vital in cleaning the body to clear accumulations manifesting as dis-ease.
Jin Shin Jyutsu is a gentle and relaxing path to healing.
