About Jin Shin Jyutsu

JIN SHIN JYUTSU® literally translated is:

JYUTSU - Art
SHIN - Creator
JIN - Man of Knowing and Compassion
(Art of the Creator through man of knowing and compassion)

JIN SHIN JYUTSU is the Art of releasing tensions which are the causes for various symptoms in the body. Our bodies contain several energy pathways that feed life into all of our cells. When one or more of these paths become blocked, this damming effect may lead to discomfort or even pain. This blockage or stagnation will not only disrupt the local area but will continue and eventually disharmonize the complete path or paths of the energy flow.

Through Jin Shin Jyutsu our awareness is awakened to the simple fact that we are endowed with the ability to harmonize and balance ourselves (in rhythm with the universe) physically, mentally and spiritually.

Jin Shin Jyutsu is an art as opposed to a technique because a technique is a mechanical application, whereas an art is a skillful creation. This beautiful, simple Art is our inheritance.

According to ancient written records, which remain in the Archives of the Imperial Palace in Japan, Jin Shin Jyutsu was widely known before the birth of Gautama (Buddha, India), before the birth of Moses (recorded in the Bible), and before the Kojiki (Record of Ancient Things - Japan, A.D. 712). Jin Shin Jyutsu is an innate part of man's wisdom - simplifying the complexities of existence - and is truly an Art of Living.

Jin Shin Jyutsu was rediscovered by Master Jiro Murai early in the 20th century. His student, Mary Burmeister, brought the Art from Japan to America in the 1950's. Classes in Jin Shin Jyutsu are currently offered by the following instructors:  Chus Arias, Muriel Carlton, Philomena Dooley, Wayne Hackett, Cynthia Broshi, Petra Elmendorff, Carlos Gutterres, Sara Harper, Ian Harris, Mona Harris, Jennifer Holmes, Iole Lebensztajn, Nathalie Max, Birgitta Meinhardt, Jill Marie Pasquinelli (Holden), Waltraud Riegger-Krause, Jed Schwartz, Susan Schwartz, Margareth Umeoka Serra, Michael Wenninger and Anita Willoughby.
