Recharge Your Body’s Batteries the Easy Way (article by Kathrin Stengel)


Recharge Your Body’s Batteries the Easy Way

The power of our hands is no secret to massage therapists. The ancient art of Jin Shin Jyutsu® takes this knowledge to a new level, offering an easy-yet-sophisticated self-care method that is accessible to everyone, at all times.

According to the philosophy of Jin Shin Jyutsu, we have 26 points of energetic density on both sides of our body. These points protect us from major energetic breakdowns, and are called safety energy locks. In case our energetic current isn’t in balance—on a physical, mental or emotional level—several of these points will lock, and dis-ease or discomfort will remind us to restore our balance.

In Jin Shin Jyutsu, our hands work as jumper cables that enable us to recharge our body, mind and spirit and restore a harmonious flow of energy, which is key to health and balance. For example, by simply holding your thumb, you can help boost your stomach and spleen energy and harmonize the plethora of symptoms that may occur when those energies are out of balance. Holding your thumb can assist in easing a broad range of issues, including upset stomach, nervousness and exhaustion.

See the photo below for how to perform the thumb hold. Hold your thumb until you can sense a pulsing in it; or, if you don’t feel your pulse easily, hold it for about three minutes. Once you perform the technique a few times, you will quickly develop an intuitive understanding of how long you need to hold it in order to feel relief. In addition to your thumb, you can perform holds on other fingers. See the chart on the right for information on which fingers help balance different body parts, or assist in relieving worry, anger, sadness and other negative emotions. Gently holding our fingers addresses physical, mental and emotional concerns, as our fingers are the main entry points to all energetic highways of the body, such as the vertebrae, organs and emotions.

In addition to simple finger holds, Jin Shin Jyutsu also utilizes flows, intricate choreographies for our hands which help us take care of our bodily fuse box. You can learn these more complex practices and adapt them to your self-care routine by taking one of the many continuing education courses available.

For me, my family of five, and thousands of practitioners, Jin Shin Jyutsu has become indispensable, as we can apply it anywhere, anytime. Try it for self-care and tap into the repairing properties of this simple healing art.

Her Family Stopped Eating Sugar for A Year, and This is What Happened


By: Eve O. Schaub | Once upon a time, I was healthy; at least I thought I was.

Sure, I lacked enough energy to get me through the day, but with all the commercials on TV touting energy drinks for America’s tired masses, I always assumed I wasn’t the only one suffering. And sure, everyone in my family dreaded the coming cold and flu season, but again, I thought come January everyone develops some degree of germophobia.

At least, that’s what I thought until I heard some disturbing new information about the effects of sugar. According to several experts, sugar is the thing that is making so many Americans fat and sick. The more I thought about it the more this made sense to me — a lot of sense. One in seven Americans has metabolic syndrome. One in three Americans is obese. The rate of diabetes is skyrocketing and cardiovascular disease is America’s number one killer.

According to this theory, all of these maladies and more can be traced back to one large toxic presence in our diet… sugar.


I took all of this newfound knowledge and formulated an idea. I wanted to see how hard it would be to have our family — me, my husband, and our two children (ages 6 and 11) — spend an entire year eating foods that contained no added sugar. We’d cut out anything with an added sweetener, be it table sugar, honey, molasses, maple syrup, agave or fruit juice. We also excluded anything made with fake sugar or sugar alcohols. Unless the sweetness was attached to its original source (e.g., a piece of fruit), we didn’t eat it.

Once we started looking we found sugar in the most amazing places: tortillas, sausages, chicken broth, salad dressing, cold cuts, crackers, mayonnaise, bacon, bread, and even baby food. Why add all of this sugar? To make these items more palatable, add shelf life, and make packaged food production ever cheaper.

Call me crazy, but avoiding added sugar for a year struck me as a grand adventure. I was curious as to what would happen. I wanted to know how hard it would be, what interesting things could happen, how my cooking and shopping would change. After continuing my research, I was convinced removing sugar would make us all healthier. What I didn’t expect was how not eating sugar would make me feel better in a very real and tangible way.


It was subtle, but noticeable; the longer I went on eating without added sugar, the better and more energetic I felt. If I doubted the connection, something happened next which would prove it to me: my husband’s birthday.

During our year of no sugar, one of the rules was that, as a family, we could have one actual sugar-containing dessert per month; if it was your birthday, you got to choose the dessert. By the time September rolled around we noticed our palates starting to change, and slowly, we began enjoying our monthly “treat” less and less.

But when we ate the decadent multi-layered banana cream pie my husband had requested for his birthday celebration, I knew something new was happening. Not only did I not enjoy my slice of pie, I couldn’t even finish it. It tasted sickly sweet to my now sensitive palate. It actually made my teeth hurt. My head began to pound and my heart began to race; I felt awful.

It took a good hour lying on the couch holding my head before I began to recover. “Geez,” I thought, “has sugar always made me feel bad, but because it was everywhere, I just never noticed it before?”

After our year of no sugar ended, I went back and counted the absences my kids had in school and compared them to those of previous years. The difference was dramatic. My older daughter, Greta, went from missing 15 days the year before to missing only two.

Now that our year of no sugar is over, we’ll occasionally indulge, but the way we eat it is very different. We appreciate sugar in drastically smaller amounts, avoid it in everyday foods (that it shouldn’t be in in the first place), and save dessert for truly special occasions. My body seems to be thanking me for it. I don’t worry about running out of energy. And when flu season comes around I somehow no longer feel the urge to go and hide with my children under the bed. But if we do come down with something, our bodies are better equipped to fight it. We get sick less and get well faster. Much to my surprise, after our no-sugar life, we all feel healthier and stronger. And that is nothing to sneeze at.

Going to the Jin Shin Jyutsu institute in Scottsdale

I just booked a flight ticket to the US (going in December), my first stop will be in Scottsdale, at the Jin Shin Jyutsu institute, where I will get JSJ treatments for 5 days, 2 treatments every day – I can recommend intensive treatments like that, when you have time to do it, it is really beneficial. And you don’t have to go to Scottsdale to do it, Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioners all around the world can do it too, it’s just a matter of scheduling 🙂
I’m looking forward to spend some time in Scottsdale again, I was there in July last year, and it was very very hot, so I also wanted to find out what it’s like to be in Scottsdale when the temperature is “normal”…

Today is the International Day of Jin Shin Jyutsu

Today is the International Day of Jin Shin Jyutsu ☯

Please enjoy the following excerpts…from the speech given by David Burmeister at our Christchurch seminar, and also at the 100 year celebrations. We invite you to hold your mudras, or enjoy some self help whilst you read….

It was late in 1946 at the home of a Mrs. Sato that Jiro Murai met one of his most prominent students, Mary Mariko Iino, later to become Mary Burmeister. While Mary was at the Sato home teaching English to a group of students, she was told that Sensei was coming. Mary recalled that there was great excitement in the home because this was an unexpected visit. She had heard her English students speak of their mysterious Sensei with reverence but didn’t know much about him. She asked to excuse herself but was told that Sensei knew she was there and wanted to meet her.

When Jiro arrived and first met Mary, he said that he had a gift for her and asked if she would bring it back to America. Not knowing what was being offered, and without hesitation, Mary said yes. And thus began the journey that Mary would embark upon and cherish for the rest of her life.

Mary soon joined the Jin Shin Jyutsu lecture series that was about to begin and with the same commitment, love and excellence that were the hallmark of her life, she studied and embodied the teachings of Jin Shin Jyutsu over the next 6 years. Not long after Mary began to study with Jiro Murai, her father Uhachi Iino, who had been detained in a US internment camp during the war, returned to Japan and he also became a student of Jin Shin Jyutsu. Together, Mary and Uhachi Iino developed a deep and lasting friendship with Jiro Murai.

Mary left Japan and returned to America, to bring the gift that she had been earnestly studying for the past 6 years. Uhachi Iino remained in Japan for a couple more years, working on clients; many sent to him by Jiro Murai and continued his studies of Jin Shin Jyutsu. Uhachi was instrumental is keeping Mary up to date with any new discoveries from Jiro, who constantly developed his theories and created more standardized flows.

When Mary left Japan there were a total of only 15 Safety Energy Locks identified. Safety energy locks 16-23 were developed between 1953 and 1956. Finally, Jiro created Safety energy locks 24-26 before the beginning of his final lecture. The first time all 26 safety energy locks appeared together were in 1957 during his final lecture series.

After Mary’s return to the US it wasn’t long before the word got out in Los Angeles, about a little Japanese woman who had an amazing gift for helping people alleviate their illnesses. Before long Mary found herself working from early in the mornings until late in the evenings sharing her healing hands with the many people who found their way to our home. No one was turned away.

Then in 1965, 12 years after her return from Japan, Mary began to teach Jin Shin Jyutsu to others. Her first class was taught to a group of Chiropractors who learned of Mary from her neighbour, whom she had treated for migraine headaches. Mary’s purpose in life was now being realized as scores of students flocked to study with her. Southern California in the 1960’s became the setting where Jin Shin Jyutsu first took hold in America. This was a very unique time in the United States with so much growth in consciousness, much of it coming from the east. So the popularity of Jin Shin Jyutsu seemed very natural and fitting for the times.

Mary’s students spanned the spectrum of lifestyles and perspectives. I remember her working with Lama’s and with Nuclear Physicists, with Movie stars and with hippies and Mary evolved and learned from them all. This was the dawning of the Age of Aquarius and Mary’s students wanted to know how Jin Shin Jyutsu related to a vast array of subjects. Certainly Jin Shin Jyutsu has close ties with modern science and Traditional Oriental Medicine. However, through the questions and interests of her students, Mary also discovered Jin Shin Jyutsu’s interconnectedness with astrology, numerology, Kabala, the Tarot and many forms of ancient wisdom.

Mary was truly a pioneer of higher consciousness and this was one of her greatest contributions to the Art of Jin Shin Jyutsu: her deep awareness of the significance of the “Now”, of this “breath that I am”, and how she embodied this wisdom and was able to convey it to her students. She loved to speak about the “No Thing”, the ancient concept of emptiness and then bring it to life for her students through words and actions. Like Jiro Murai, her studies and developments in Jin Shin Jyutsu never ended. Some of Mary’s other great contributions to the Art of Jin Shin Jyutsu includes developing the Theory of the Depths, enabling us to view the human being and understanding its connection to the divine, and then show us how to utilize this awareness to help any project within the body. Mary also placed considerable emphasis on the practice of self-help and spent many years developing this knowledge and creating flows for the simple application of Jin Shin Jyutsu for Myself, so that each one can be their own source of healing and their own testimony.
In March of 1990 Mary fell at home sustaining a serious head injury which abruptly ended her career as our loving and gifted teacher. This immediately initiated our new teachers into presenting Jin Shin Jyutsu and they continue to inspire our student to this day.
The many treasures that Mary Burmeister and Jiro Murai left behind are what we are here to celebrate today, and always. As Mary loved to say, “We are all divinely guided”. Today with reverence and humility, we give thanks for the blessing of finding our way to the beautiful living legacy that is the Art of Jin Shin Jyutsu.

Deepest bows Mary. We remember and honour you on your special day ❀ All Blessings to our beautiful Jin Shin Jyutsu family ❀

Dear Jin Shin Jyutsu friends

It is my pleasure to invite you to a Jin Shin Jyutsu Self-Help class in Uppsala, Sweden on the weekend of the 15/16 November! Nathalie Max, an authorised Jin Shin Jyutsu instructor since 2002, will be here from Paris to lead this course. The Self-Help course is for review as well as new students… all are warmly welcome! To attend this course before a 5 day seminar will help you to know the essential foundations. To attend it afterwards will help you to come back to simplicity.

Nathalie will introduce the basic concepts and daily practice of Jin Shin Jyutsu: To discover or rediscover what you have already in you, the keys to complete harmonization. The course will be based on Nathalie’s extensive experience of Jin Shin Jyutsu and her knowledge of Mary Burmeister’s Self-Help Book 1, Jin Shin Jyutsu Is.
The course will cover:
– Art of Living
– Awareness of Universal Energy
– Source of Life (Getting to know (help) Myself )
– Attitudes
– Basic daily Sequences
– Special Sequences
– Practice on Myself several times per day

Here are a few words about Nathalie:

Nathalie Max was born in 1963 in Paris, France where she still lives. At a very young age she was attracted to drawing but her natural ability in mathematics sent her on a scientific path. In 1989, she was working in a science research lab when she took her first Jin Shin Jyutsu self help class. Nathalie states: ” From the very first morning, with the 36 breaths, something different happened to me that has never left me” At 26 she began her journey in Jin Shin Jyutsu It Is. and it is here she met her mentor, Muriel Carlton. In 2000 she chose to completely dedicate her life to this Art.

In her classes, her liking of exactness and simplicity is nurtured by a vibrant passion for the Orient and the Japanese culture, and when she attempts to go “behind the obvious”, “beyond the formulas ” or “to seek the invisible”, it is with her legendary humor that she enchants her students. Her teaching resembles her touch, it is with no pressure but with a subtle force she enjoys finding the words to wake up the Jin Shin Jyutsu artist that is in each of us. Facts about Nathalie:

Astrological sign: Aquarius/ Numbers: 7, 8/ Color: China blue/ Favorite Flow: 13/ Bedside Book: The Kojiki/ Favorite Flower: peony/ Hobbies: calligraphy and the study of Japanese.

9 “Magic” Foods to Heal Your Body

I have been participating in some macrobiotic workshops earlier this year, and we cooked some delicious and healthy food, I found this article that cover some of those things we cooked. Enjoy! 


These vegan blood-cleansing foods will gently detox your system.
Published on: May 1, 2014

This salty paste is made from a bean (usually soy), sometimes a grain, salt, and a bacteria called koji. It’s fermented, meaning it’s full of live probiotics and enzymes. It acts like yogurt, but without the icky problems of dairy. Eating miso in soup—its most powerful, healing form—is great for digestion; is a huge boost for the immune system; is alkalizing to the blood; and packs some protein, iron, vitamins, and minerals. Basically, it keeps your body balanced and happy.

Treat yourself to homemade miso soup every day. Just make sure you’re buying high-quality miso paste that’s made with barley and aged at least 2 years. The powdered stuff isn’t going to give you the same benefits, and the same goes for the soup served in Japanese restaurants. That miso’s usually pasteurized (so the enzymes aren’t alive anymore), and the broth is often super-salty, is made from fish stock, and may even contain MSG.

Pickled Veggies
Just like miso, these sour little fermented gems are full of live probiotics and enzymes that help your body absorb nutrients and put them to good use. They’re also a boost for the immune system and act as antioxidants. The pickles that will do your body the most justice aren’t the jarred dill variety you normally think of. In fact, most supermarket pickles aren’t naturally fermented and are made with a lot of preservatives and unnecessary ingredients like sugar.

Look instead for unpasteurized pickles or sauerkraut in the refrigerated section of your health food store. Use them to add a tasty, tangy, crunchy, salty punch to any meal. Because these guys are pretty salty, though, don’t go overboard and, if you can, rinse them lightly before digging in. You only need about a tablespoon each meal to reap the full benefits.

Umeboshi plums
These super-sour pickled plums are alkalizing to the blood, which means they help counteract acidity in your system—a major bonus if you’re just starting to clean house. Eat a quarter of an umeboshi plum with your grains a few times a week and you’ll also enhance your digestive health. The great news, too, is that these are pretty easy to find. Check out places like Whole Foods Market or your local natural or Asian market.

Burdock root
This long, brown root has an earthy flavor with just a tiny bit of sweetness. It has unbelievable restorative powers and is used to cleanse and purify the blood, support digestion, scrub away toxins, and even help lower blood sugar. It has more protein, calcium, and phosphorus than carrots and is a great source of potassium.

I love adding it to soups, stews, and stir-fries, and dishes. Some farmers’ markets carry it, but more often you’ll find it stocked in Asian markets and health food stores.

Though it looks kind of like a huge white carrot, this miraculous veg is actually a member of the radish family. It’s a natural diuretic, which is perfect for when you’ve been a little naughty. It has a spicy, pungent flavor when raw but becomes meaty and sweet when cooked. These have been popping up in more and more regular supermarkets, but your natural market or Asian market should have you covered.

Lotus root
In Chinese medicine, they say that foods that look like certain body parts are extra fortifying for those organs. Lotus root—which looks like a long, white tube—is a breath of fresh air for our bodies. It helps circulate and enrich our blood, gives us more energy, nurtures the heart, quiets digestive issues, supports the stomach, and flushes out toxins.

Chopped and steeped in hot water as a tea, it’s a curative remedy for a chest cold or phlegmy cough. You’ll most likely find lotus root in an Asian market, but make sure that the vegetable is cream colored—white lotus root may have been bleached. You can also order dried lotus root online and reconstitute it with a little hot water before cooking.

Sea vegetables
There’s something almost mystical about these calcium- and mineral-loaded gifts from the ocean. Sea veggies like nori, hijiki, arame, wakame, and kombu are high in protein; alkalize and detoxify the blood; can reduce blood pressure and inhibit tumor growth; have anti-inflammatory properties; and are amazing for your hair, skin, teeth, and bones. Consider these guys an important medicinal food to be eaten a couple of times a week. They’ll keep you glowing and beautiful and beyond healthy. Plus, they’re so tasty.

Green leafies
Kale, collards, turnip greens, mustard greens, watercress, and bok choy are not only loaded with minerals that make the blood strong and energized, but their chlorophyll can help you feel relaxed, open, and happy. They are really, truly a crucial part of your diet if you want to feel amazing. But please don’t just throw greens in your smoothie and call it a day.

When plants get all ground up before we eat them, we assimilate them differently. Blending is not the same as chewing. Also, when you’re adding them to a smoothie, you’re probably adding in other sweet treats like fruit and sweeteners. While that’s completely kosher every once in a while, it isn’t the kind of pure, green loveliness you want to indulge in more often.

Adzuki, black beans, and black soybeans
In addition to giving you a leg up in the iron department, these members of the legume tribe are good for the adrenal glands, which in turn can help relieve stress on the body (and help you get pregnant!)

While all beans are amazingly good for you, these varieties pack an extra punch. Black soybeans can help cleanse your system if up until now you’ve been overdoing it on animal foods or baked flour goodies. Adzukis are known for their supercharged healing properties, especially for reproductive function, and black beans are the most antioxidant rich of the entire legume family.
