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.
