Jin Shin Jyutsu is a gentle, non-invasive form of energy medicine that originated in Japan in the early 1900s. It utilizes unique and detailed diagrams of the major energy channels within the body and 26 sets of key locations used to restore harmony and balance. It is an effective component of integrative care, and a valuable modality for self-care.
The name Jin Shin Jyutsu means “The art of the Creator through the person of compassion.” The healing art that those words represent is based upon our own natural ability to harmonize ourselves using our hands. It is likely that the knowledge of these techniques dates back thousands of years, but it had fallen into obscurity by the twentieth century. Juro Murai, the originator of Jin Shin Jyutsu later taught Mary Burmeister, a young Japanese-American women who is credited for bringing Jin Shin Jyutsu to the United States and started teaching in 1965.
