We are striving to combine traditional Chinese’s medicine treatment with other complementary therapies to help treat the whole person, with an emphasis on healing and wellness. Because of that we are adding Jin Shin Jyutsu® that is an ancient healing art of harmonizing the body through gentle touch. Originating from Japan, the name Jin Shin Jyutsu literally translates to “The Art of the Creator through the Person of Knowing and Compassion.”
What is Jin Shin Jyutsu?
Jin Shin Jyutsu is the ancient art of balancing the body’s energy system, which facilitates healing and restores the body to a more harmonious state of being.
Jin Shin Jyutsu Practitioners use their hands to gently balance the flow of life energy in the patient’s body.
Jin Shin Jyutsu is a valuable complement to conventional healing methods. The body contains pathways that feed life energy into all cells and functions. The stresses of daily life – habits, emotions, illness and physical activity – add up over time. They can have adverse effects on the natural flow of energy along these pathways, similar to the way stones inhibit the free movement of water in a stream.
When one or more of these pathways becomes blocked, resulting in physical and/or emotional symptoms the art of Jin Shin Jyutsu clears the blocks in these energetic pathways, returning them to a more harmonious state.
What happens during a Jin Shin Jyutsu session?
A typical Jin Shin Jyutsu session lasts about one hour. The patient lays face-up on a comfortable, cushioned surface and stays fully clothed. The practitioner begins the session by “listening” to the energetic pulses in the wrist area. These pulses reveal information about the current state of the body’s energetic system and help pinpoint the areas of stress or disharmony.
During treatment, the practitioner gently holds specific areas on the body called “safety energy locks” (similar to acupressure points) in various hand placement combinations known as “flows.”
These flows help unblock pathways, restoring the body to a state of harmony. There is no massage or physical manipulation of the body. The touch is light with very little pressure.
What are the benefits of Jin Shin Jyutsu?
The most commonly reported effect is a feeling of deep relaxation of both the body and mind during and after the treatment. At times, the body may produce soft bubbling sounds that are simply a response to the body’s release of tension. Jin Shin Jyutsu’s most pronounced effects are felt within the first eight hours of a completed session.
Further long-term effects may be experienced and are unique to the individual.
