Art of the Creator through man of knowing & compassion

Welcome to Jin Shin Jyutsu

Art of the Creator through man of knowing and compassion

Jin Shin Jyutsu® physio-philosophy is an art of harmonizing the life energy in the body. Born of innate wisdom and passed down from generation to generation by word of mouth, the Art had fallen into relative obscurity when it was dramatically revived in the early 1900's by Master Jiro Murai in Japan.

After clearing himself of a life-threatening illness, Master Murai devoted the rest of his life to the research and development of Jin Shin Jyutsu, gathering insight from a range of experiences and resources, including the Kojiki (Record of Ancient Things). The resulting knowledge of Jin Shin Jyutsu was then given to Mary Burmeister, who brought it to the United States in the 1950's.

Mary Burmeister began teaching the Art to others in the early 1960's, and today there are thousands of students throughout the United States and around the world.

🆕 FASCINATION WITH FASCIA: A Journey Within our Celluar Matrix - Begins June 4th, 2022

In Person Special Topic Class presented in English by Anita Willoughby

Class begins Saturday, June 4th @ 9AM EST (New York time)

Please join us live in Tampa, Florida on June 4th & 5th, for a two-day exploration of fascia, through the lens of Jin Shin Jyustu. We will examine the fascia from head to toe, and offer a glimpse into how fascia binds us within ourselves, to each other, and to the universe.

Everything is or once was fascia. Before being human, we exist as fascia in a cellular state. As we develop, our fascia becomes the largest sensory organ in our bodies. Through the hands-on application of Jin Shin Jyustu flows, we will sensitize ourselves to the importance of this newfound organ.

During this class we will:

  • Define the unique qualities of fascia
  • Explore fascia as an organ
  • Identify fascial imbalances
  • Identify harmonizing Jin Shin Jyutsu flows
  • Time for hands-on practice

Class Location: Holiday Inn Tampa Westshore - Airport Area, an IHG Hotel
