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.

Dear Friends

If you are intrigued about the gentle art of Jin Shin Jyutsu, click on the link to read a great recent interview with David Burmeister, Director of JSJ Inc.

The Jin Shin Jyutsu Instructor Training Program (ITP) is being renovated and has a new name.  The program is now called the Instructor Candidate Evaluation Program or ICEP.  The Mary Burmeister JSJ Institute is currently looking for a few very experienced candidates to apply to the ICEP to determine if they are qualified to join the program. In the past, new instructors have been brought into JSJ, Inc. through a process initiated twenty years ago. To ensure the quality of teaching expected of our faculty, the program continues to be reviewed and revised.  

Applicant requirements are quite extensive because individuals are expected to begin practice teaching once they are accepted into the program and are given the opportunities to hone these skills. To more adequately describe this process, the Instructor Training Program (ITP) was renamed the Instructor Candidate Evaluation Program (ICEP).  At this summer’s faculty meeting, the need for new instructors will, again, be addressed. It is likely some openings in the ICEP will be approved to cover the anticipated needs of the organization based on the growth of Jin Shin Jyutsu throughout the world. If you have interest in becoming a JSJ instructor, find out more about this program at: parameters of the program will be available at this website until the changes in the revision are integrated. Qualified applicants may complete the existing online forms on this website to begin the process. Good luck to all of you who are interested in joining the JSJ faculty.
