Health is the proper relationship the microcosm, which is man
and the macrocosm, which is the universe. Disease is a disruption of this relationship. Dr. Yeshe Donden, Physician to the Dalai Lama
Jin Shin Jyutsu (JSJ) means, "The Art of the creator through the person of compassion." It is an ancient Japanese art of gently balancing the body's systems. In JSJ the practitioner places their hands at specific locations known as Safety Energy Locks (SELs). SELs are similar to acupressure points and interestingly are located near or on well-known acupuncture sites. SELs might be described as circuit breakers which can become damaged or shut down in response to stress, trauma or disease. JSJ helps to reopen these energetic areas allowing the energy to flow freely through the meridians again.
“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. “

Like Tao Healing and Chinese Medicine, JSJ recognizes that true health is based in harmonious inter-relationships between the meridians and organ systems, various aspects of our own selves and our relationship with our outer environment. JSJ helps to restore harmony and balance within ourselves and also with our greater environment.
Similar to acupressure, this is painless and profoundly relaxing. Jin Shin Jyutsu is well suited for stress reduction, headaches, digestive complaints, pain reduction and promoting a general sense of well-being. A Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner can also teach the client self-help techniques that can be done at home to improve health and maintain results between sessions. This greatly augments the effects of treatment.
"Jin Shin Jyutsu helps us to find that tone, the perfect expression of
harmony, that exists within everyone. It is a philosophy, a psychology, and a physiology. It demonstrates a way of Being to understand cosmic oneness and to know and help ourselves."
