Surgical anesthesia are helpful medical components but can cause uncomfortable side effects such as headache, nausea, constipation and grogginess. These simple Jin Shin Jyutsu® holds when applied by a caregiver or loved one after surgery can assist with these unwanted effects. They also put the body into a state of relaxation which is optimal for healing. Learn more about the use of Jin Shin Jyutsu at the Markey Cancer Center here: http://ukhealthcare.uky.edu/jsj/.


0:09 We can help the body relax after surgery and assist with the side effects of headache, nausea and constipation with some simple Jin Shin Jyutsu holds given by the caregiver immediately after surgery in recovery or as soon as you are able.

0:28 Once the patient is in recovery, the caregiver may apply a simple hold we call “palming the calves.” Stand at the end of the bed or sit at the side of the bed of the individual, whatever is most comfortable for you. Place your hands with your palms facing up so that the palms hold the calves of the recipient with your fingers close to, but not necessarily in, the center back of the knee. It’s fine if your hands are not directly in line with the calves as they may be angled if you’re working from a seated position from the side. Hold for 20 minutes or as long as you are able.

1:07 Next, cross your arms and again place your hands so they are holding the calves. This time you’re working from the inside of the legs. Hold again for up to 20 minutes.

1:19 Palming the calves can be done whenever possible to energize the body and assist with healing from surgery. Palming the calves is also beneficial when applied after receiving chemotherapy. Opposite fingers and toes taught in another video is also dynamic for relaxing the body and assisting with healing after surgery. Please watch our other video for details about applying these simple holds.
