What is Jin Shin Jyutsu?

Quite simply, Jin Shin Jyutsu is a way to balance our life energy and achieve optimum health.  It shows us how to use hands-on sequences to restore emotional equilibrium, relieve pain and release the cause of both acute and chronic conditions. It can be used safely in conjunction with any other therapy or medications and can be used anywhere and at any time.

Jin Shin Jyutsu is a healing art with a history of over 5,000 years and it means “the art of the creator through compassionate man”. The healing art that those words represent is based upon our own natural, innate ability to harmonise ourselves.  For thousands of years, ancient peoples used this awareness to heal both themselves and others.

Over time this awareness was all but forgotten until a Japanese sage named Jiro Murai rediscovered Jin Shin Jyutsu in the early part of the twentieth century. His 3 key students included Mary Burmeister (a Japanese American),  her father and Haruki Kato. Mary Burmeister brought the art from Japan to America in 1954 and through her teachings, books and thousands of classes held around the world this awareness continues to grow.  Today, over 13,000 practice this art with the main office in Scotsdale, Arizona.

The Jin Shin Jyutsu NZ Charitable Trust is currently under transformation and, to support the continued growth of Jin Shin Jyutsu in our region, our New Zealand Office is now open.

To meet the needs of students and visitors to our pages, the website is under construction …announcements, updates and more information will be available soon. In the meantime, please contact Julie Wells 027 635 2752 for details.

Our mission is to empower people to help and teach themselves and others through consulting services, training seminars, self help classes and further (self study). To increase the awareness and understanding of spirit, mind and body and the application of the Art of Jin Shin Jyutsu to create and manifest harmony and well-being in all dimensions of life. To be an inspiration to others.

Announcement from David Burmeister, Director – JSJ inc, Scottsdale, Arizona

Instructor Candidate Evaluation Program
The Jin Shin Jyutsu Instructor Training Program (ITP) is being renovated and has a new name. The program is now called the Instructor Candidate Evaluation Program or ICEP. The Mary Burmeister JSJ Institute is currently looking for a few very experienced candidates to apply to the ICEP to determine if they are qualified to join the program.
In the past, new instructors have been brought into JSJ, Inc. through a process initiated twenty years ago. To ensure the quality of teaching expected of our faculty, the program continues to be reviewed and revised.
Applicant requirements are quite extensive because individuals are expected to begin practice teaching once they are accepted into the program and are given the opportunities to hone these skills. To more adequately describe this process, the Instructor training program (ITP) was renamed the Instructor Candidate Evaluation Program (ICEP).
At this summer’s faculty meeting, the need for new instructors will, again be addressed. It is likely some openings in the ICEP will be approved to cover the anticipated needs of the organization based on the growth of Jin Shin Jyutsu throughout the world. If you have interest in becoming a JSJ instructor, find out more about this program at: http://www.jsjitp.com/
The parameters of the program will be available at this website until the changes in the revision are integrated. Qualified applicants may complete the existing online application on the ITP website to begin the process. Good luck to all of you who are interested in joining the JSJ faculty

Thank you!
David Burmeister
