Jin Shin Jyutsu: An Ancient Art Available to All

Here’s a blogpost from Astrid Kauffmann, her websiteadress is:

I feel the same way she does when I am trying to explain Jin Shin Jyutsu for new people 🙂

When I meet new people and they ask me: ‘What do you do?’ and I say that I am a Jin Shin Jyutsu®  Practitioner, they invariably look at me blankly and say: ‘Oh, I’ve never heard of that.’ To which I answer: ‘It’s an ancient Art of healing, rediscovered in Japan about a hundred years ago.’

Then they, quite rightly, ask: ‘Oh, is it like Reiki?’ and I say (and this is my own perspective since I have studied and practised both): ‘Jin Shin Jyutsu and Reiki both work with subtle energies, but there the similarity ends for me.’

If they are still interested, I proceed to explain that, as JSJ Practitioners (working hands-on the body over clothing), our aim is to harmonise the life energy (and all 144,000 energy functions) by using a system of 26 energy sites, found on the left and right sides which are mirror images of each other, so we have, in fact, access to 52 ‘energy sites’ (officially called Safety Energy Locks or SELs for short). We also make use of the fingers and toes which, when held, activate and regenerate all those energy functions.

The next question is often: ‘Do you use pressure, or massage?’ So I show them that the touch we use is gentle – no pressure, massage or manipulation is needed: ‘This is a dynamic touch therapy. As we connect with the specific locations of the 26 energy sites, we facilitate the body’s own healing ability. You see, the body is capable of healing itself, but this really does speed up the process. In essence, it relaxes, rebalances, repairs and regenerates the whole system, on every level – physically, mentally, emotionally, and, yes, spiritually.’

Usually the reaction at this point goes something like this: ‘That sounds fascinating.’ And I say: ‘Yes, it is. The most wonderful thing about Jin Shin Jyutsu is that it is available to each and every one of us! We all have the ability to use this Art in our everyday lives, and all I ‘do’ is introduce the awareness of it by offering individual sessions, talks and self help classes. In fact, there are many practitioners around the world who offer self help classes. The self help is simple and FUN to learn. It’s as easy as holding a finger!’

And so the journey of ‘Getting to KNOW (Help) MYSELF’ begins…
