Jin Shin Jyutsu® is an ancient form of acupressure therapy.
Born of innate wisdom and passed down from generation to generation by word of mouth, Jin Shin Jyutsu had fallen into relative obscurity when it was revived in Japan in the early 1900’s by Master Jiro Murai. His student Mary Burmeister brought the art to the Unites States and began teaching in the 1960’s.
There are countless remarkable stories of people making recoveries from chronic or acute illness after receiving JSJ sessions. Many of these people were initially skeptical about the potency of a modality so seemingly simple and gentle. Yet it is its very subtlety that allows the recipient to really relax and be receptive to the healing process. Jin Shin Jyutsu is based on ancient principles and practices similar to traditional Chinese medicine and can therefore be compared with acupuncture. Instead of using needles to stimulate the flow of energy we use the contact of our hands.
For those addressing existing stress or health disharmonies, or for those simply wishing to participate actively in maintaining their well-being, the art of Jin Shin Jyutsu is a tool available to all. It can be applied as Self-Help (at times in conjunction with conventional medicine) or by a trained practitioner in Hands-on Sessions.
Translated Jin Shin Jyutsu means: the Art of the Creator through the person of compassion. Mary describes the essence of JSJ with the phrase: To know (help) myself. As such it can open the door to profound personal transformation.
“Through Jin Shin Jyutsu our awareness is awakened to the simple fact that all that is needed for harmony and balance with the universe – physically, emotionally and spiritually – is within myself. Through this awareness, the feeling of complete peace, serenity, security, the oneness within is evident. No person, situation, or thing can take these away from me.” – Mary Burmeister
