Now Know Myself class in Austin, Texas, July 2018

I just got back to Sweden after spending some time in the US – among other things I participated in the awesome Now Know Myself class in Austin, with Wayne Hackett, Muriel Carlton and Carlos Gutterres – the NKM-class is always different, depending who is in it, and who the instructors are, so as always in classes, there will be some aha-moments  

Next chance for a NKM-class will be in Münich, Germany 31 oct – 4 nov, with Anita Willoughby and Waltraud Riegger-Krause
And next chance in the US will be in Green Bay, WI, 10-14 april 2019, with Jill Marie Pasquinelli and Cynthia Broshi
And also Boston, MA 6-10 nov 2019, with Wayne Hackett Carlos Gutterres and Sara Harper.

Jin Shin Jyutsu classes with Waltraud Riegger-Krause, Oct 2017 – June 2019

I have been in two classes with Waltraud, one 5 day class and one self-help class, and I remember very clearly sitting at the first day at the 5 day class in England, when she made her introductory speech to the class, how I was thinking that what she said was exactly what I needed to hear right there and then, I felt that was why I came to that class. And of course that speech is different for every instructor (and even for the same instructor) – it depends on what students there are in the class, what the circumstances are in the world at that moment, and so on… it’s really interesting how all the instructors present the “subject”, I pay attention to that, I feel that there’s a lot of wisdom in those words…
And I hope she will give a class about drawing and deepening the of the Organ flows, in English – so far I’ve only seen that class given in the German language
And of course there will be more classes with her in 2019, this is the only one posted so far, but there will be more…

New Jin Shin Jyutsu classes with Waltraud Riegger-Krause 2016

I was in a 5 day class with Waltraud in England a couple of years ago, and remember I was thinking when she made the introduction to the class that it is amazing that every teacher bring their own “flavour” to the class, and it seems like what they bring is exactly what I needed to hear right that moment. Even if I have been to several 5 day classes, every new teacher I meet bring something different 🙂
And I’ve also participated in a self-help class with her, she was talking about book 1, but with the focus “stress” which was interesting, how to use that book in that way.
She has also made some Jin Shin Jyutsu flash cards, you can find them here:

Recharge Your Body’s Batteries the Easy Way: Jin Shin Jyutsu® (Kathrin Stengel)

Recharge Your Body’s Batteries the Easy Way: Jin Shin Jyutsu®

Jin Shin Jyutsu thumb hold

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.

The Key to Health and 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.

Jin Shin Jyutsu chart

See the photo above 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.

Kathrin Stengel, Ph.D.About the Author

Kathrin Stengel, Ph.D., is a certified Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner, author and philosopher. She co-founded the philosophical studio and publishing house Upper West Side Philosophers Inc. (www.westside-philosophers.com), which recently published the book and card set Health Is in Your Hands: Jin Shin Jyutsu®—Practicing the Art of Self-Healing, by Waltraud Riegger-Krause.

Jin Shin Jyutsu organizers meeting in Seebruck, Germany (June 2015)

I have been out traveling for some weeks now, just got back to Sweden – my first stop on my journey was at the JSJ organizers meeting in Germany, where Claire Boelhouwers and myself were having a good time, meeting many of the other organizers from Europe, and a lot of the teachers. And of course David Burmeister was also there.
I want to thank Mona Harris for a very nice event, it’s not easy to pull of all the logistics for that amount of people, she managed to find a very nice venue, and make sure in good time that we had our hotel rooms booked, and had a pick-up service at the train, among other things 🙂
And next year the meeting will take place in England, I am looking forward to that too!

One of the things that is good about these meetings is that many of the teachers are there, so we can plan ahead for classes, meeting teachers we haven’t met before, to check out if it’s possible to invite them to our little country up here in the north of Scandinavia, to talk about scheduling and other things. I want to give you some links to the teachers classes, so you can check out their schedules for yourself:

Mona Harris (Germany) has been to Sweden several times, for a 5 day class, a selthelp class and a study group, and I have also been to a 5 day class with her in Denmark:

Ian Harris (Scottsdale, Arizona) has been to Sweden once for a 5 day class – and when I was in Scottsdale last December I got several JSJ sessions with Ian:


Mattthias Roth (Germany) haven’t been with us yet, but we really want him to come, when we can make it possible:
and here’s his websiteadress:

Carlyse Smyth (England) will be the next teacher to come to Sweden, we are in the process of scheduling a self-help class and a 5 day class, coming up during this year, and next spring:

Anita Willoughby – we want her to come too, she might be the next teacher to come to Sweden after Carlyse, we are in the process of scheduling her too… and I’ve been to a pulse listening/body reading class with her in Germany, and I also have been getting a session with her in New York City

and you can find her in New York City:

Nathalie Max (France) was with us, teaching a 5 day class last May:


Jennifer Holmes (New Zealand) – it might be a little bit too far for her to come to Sweden, but she has a daughter in Europe, so it might happen anyway 🙂 and since I like to travel, I might go to New Zealand for a class with her, it’s fun to go visit where you know people..


Chus Arias (Spain) – i tried to go to a class recently in Singapore with her, but it wasn’t possible at that time.. but since she is in Spain it wouldn’t be too difficult to find a class with her a little bit closer to where I am:

Petra Elmendorff (Germany) – I was at 5 day class with her in Denmark a couple of years ago:

Birgitte Meinhardt (Germany) – haven’t been to a class with her yet, since the language of most of her classes will be in German (with one class translated into French) – but if you know German it can be nice to go to her classes:

Waltraud Riegger-Krause (Germany) – I have been to a 5 day class with her in England, and also a self-help class in Denmark:
Waltraud also wrote the book/flash cards “Health is in Your Hands, you can find more information about that here:

And here are some photos from the venue in Germany:


Jin Shin Jyutsu classes with Waltraud Riegger-Krause

I was at a 5 day class in England a couple of years ago with Waltraud, sitting in that class I remember I was thinking that I was amazed over that all the JSJ instructors I have been taking classes with always have a little “twist” to presenting the class, in a way that I felt “this is why I came to this class this time, to hear these words”… and no exception this time, I don’t remember what she said now, but it was something I really needed to hear at that time…
And I have also participated in a self-help class with her in Copenhagen last May, where she had added the theme “stress” to it, how to use self-help to reduce stress, that class was also very interesting.

So, looking into what other classes she teaches, more than 5 day classes, Living the Art and such things, I find a lot of other interesting themes:
“Drawing and deepening of the Organ Function Flows”

“All Around Hands-On Practice”

“Neck, Shoulder & Spine”

“The Breath of Life through the Number flows. Deepening the Flows of Text 1 and Hands-On Practice”

“The development of mindfulness for avoiding stress and burnout”

And here’s the link to all her classes:
