Jin Shin Jyutsu
Similar to acupuncture, without the use of needles, Jin Shin Jyutsu (jin shin jit-su) is a Japanese healing art based in the belief that in order to heal body and mind, one must revitalize and strengthen the flow of Ki – life energy within.
Disruptions in the flow of energy show up as tiredness, pain, disease and negative emotion. Like jumper cabling a car battery, Jin Shin Jyutsu jump starts energy flow, bringing healing to body, mind and spirit.
Jin Shin Jyutsu is practiced by placing fingers over clothing on designated points called Safety Energy Locks. There are 26 safety energy locks located along energy pathways on the front and back of the body. Combinations of these points are held to bring about a certain effect on the body.
So What To Expect
You will be asked to lie on your back on a massage table. No need to disrobe. You can even request a blanket if that will make you feel cozy. Pillows will be provided to support your head, knees or back as needed.
A typical Jin Shin Jyutsu session starts with listening to pulses in both wrists. The pulses show which points need to be held. You may also share any particular concerns or issues you would like addressed. You may talk if you like or just take the opportunity to relax. Most clients fall asleep during sessions.
At the end of the session take your time sitting up. The effect of a session produces a sense of calm and deep relaxation. Many clients report a good night’s sleep.
