Jin Shin Jyutsu®

Jin Shin Jyutsu® physio-philosophy is an ancient art that harmonises the life energy in the body

JinShinLogoJIN SHIN JYUTSU is the Art of releasing tensions that cause various symptoms in the body. This ancient healing art has been described as both ‘the Grandmother of Acupuncture’ and a ‘non-massage form of Shiatsu’. It’s a gentle, non invasive, hands-on treatment that doesn’t involve massage, manipulation of muscles, rubbing or pressing. Instead, the practitioner uses their hands to make light contact with 2 points at a time (over clothing).

Its aim is to promote the circulation of vital energy along pathways that communicate directly with our nerves, blood vessels and organs. When these pathways become congested, we can feel fatigue, discomfort, pain and illness. Jin Shin Jyutsu releases these blockages so relaxation is remembered, stress is reduced and the body can start healing itself.

In Jin Shin Jyutsu we don’t work with health problems, instead we work on health ‘projects’

Jin Shin Jyutsu includes self-help methods that you can use to work on yourself at home between sessions, allowing you to be more independent and proactive in your own health care.

How Does it work?

In Jin Shin Jyutsu, there are 26 vital energy access points on each side of the body, similar to acupuncture points. The Practitioner uses their hands like ‘jump-leads’ (re-charging the battery of life) to connect and clear these points. The points are held for several minutes until a pulsation is felt, then the next two points are held.

Holding these points in particular sequences and combinations removes ‘blockages’ and allows the energy to flow freely again. This process induces deep relaxation and helps the body balance itself so it can function better, feel better and heal more quickly.

Rather than ‘doing something’ to the body, Jin Shin allows the tensions which cause discomfort to evaporate, release or fade away. It encourages the body to release and ‘let go’ which is a unique experience.

Most recipients get a deep sense of peace and inner calm after their session.

Jin Shin Jyutsu would suit anybody who would enjoy an opportunity to deeply relax and let go as the practitioner works gently with their body, increasing its self-healing capacity.

Due to its gentle, harmonising  non-invasive nature, there are no contra-indications to treatment– anybody regardless of age and condition can benefit.

Sessions are given through loose clothing with the recipient lying on a comfortable raised treatment couch. They usually last 40-60 minutes.

Many people find they get most benefit from a short course of sessions.

The art was developed and used thousands of years ago before our complicated medical and scientific vocabulary was developed. It works simply with the body’s own self healing abilities. In Jin Shin Jyutsu all named modern medical conditions are considered ‘labels’ for an underlying disharmony in the body. We don’t treat the ‘label’ we simply harmonise.
