Ancient Art for Health and Well-Being
In the Far East it has been known for centuries that ill health is rooted in tension and imbalance. Stress and the resulting tension can rob us of our optimum health. As we know, tension develops due to a variety of stress factors. Some of these are; physical injury, emotional strain, mental fatigue, lack of sleep, environmental toxins and diet. Typically tension has been part of our lives for so long that we may not even notice its presence, but we frequently feel its effects. Left unreleased, tension causes imbalance in our body's systems that can contribute to fatigue and discomfort. As the tension and imbalance deepens in the body, it can become illness and degenerative disease.
What is Jin Shin Jyutsu?
Jin Shin Jyutsu (jit soo) is an ancient Asian healing art that releases the deep tension and imbalance in the body. Once this is released, your body can heal itself more easily and completely. This results in more vibrant health, better rest, less pain, faster healing, and greater resistance to illness and degeneration.
How Does It Work?
Einstein taught us that all matter is energy. Our bodies are literally dense energy. In the far east they have known for centuries that this energy moves in very specific pathways or flows throughout the body. Whenever there is trauma on any level – mentally, physically or emotionally- those energy flows will lock up (similar to a circuit breaker) to keep us from overload.
The problems arise when these points stay locked up. When this happens the body has to find less efficient ways to move the energy throughout our systems, impairing our body’s own self-healing ability. Jin Shin Jyutsu dissolves these blockages and re-establishes the proper flow of energy, thus restoring our body’s natural self-healing capacity.
Jin Shin Jyutsu is similar to acupuncture but without the discomfort of needles. The practitioner manually adjusts points on the body in specific sequences. These points, called "safety energy locks" are locations on the body where energy of "chi" tends to lock up and cause tension and imbalance. By adjusting these key safety energy locks properly, an amazing thing happens. Vitality and health start to be restored. And it works on all levels - physically, mentally, and emotionally.
Jin Shin Jyutsu strengthens the immune system, helping prevent illness. Used pre and post operatively, healing occurs at a more rapid pace - therefore it is a valuable adjunct to Western medicine.
