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.



Powerful Energy – Gentle Touch

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.

What Jane’s Clients Say:

Lindajoy Says

How do I know that Jane’s jin shin treatments work for me?
I hadn’t seen her in several years but when a persistant pain in my right leg wouldn’t go away, I set up an appointment. When I arrived for and checked in with her, I remembered that I also had been suffering from unusual fatigue for several months even though I had taken a break from work. The treatment time was enriching. I enjoyed first a brief chat and then fell into a quiet relaxation.

I write this on the next morning, knowing it will take at least a couple of good walks and perhaps a week or so to know if my discomfort and fatigue are totally gone. Jane told me my body will continue to process the treatment over a 24-hour period. Five more hours to go. And if I practice her self-help suggestions, I bet progress will continue beyond that. Based on my first observations, it seems the treatment was exactly what I needed.

Here are my first observations.
• I felt lighter as I walked down the stairs from her office building.
• I got into my car and when I turned to check traffic I was surprised to notice that my spine glided further than normal.
• I felt happier and lighter the rest of the day and stayed up to watch a movie.
• I noticed that my toes (part of where the leg pain lodged) were much more supple.
• The next morning, I awoke feeling much more rested and much more awake than I’ve felt for some time.
• I feel focused today and ready to get back to work.
• I notice my posture is balanced.
• I weigh exactly the same as I did yesterday and that’s a disappointment. But, truly, I feel lighter.

Thanks For Everything!

It has been 8 days since my session with Jane. My main complaint when I scheduled my appointment was low energy. During the session a number of other issues presented themselves; insomnia, chronic arthritic pain, spinal curvature and tension from worry, to name a few. I am a professional body worker myself and I think I’m pretty aware of my body. As soon as Jane placed her hands on my body things began to happen. I became aware of tight muscles as they released beneath the subtlest but deftly placed touch. I became more and more relaxed as the session proceeded and I began to feel uplifted, peaceful and very grateful. The session went by like a flash, and as I left Jane’s office and walked to my car, I noticed my stride and gate were smooth, flowing and effortless; impressive given that I just had a total knee replacement last October and that my walking had also become affected by pretty pronounced curvature of the spine. 🙂 These last 8 days have been extraordinary. So many things keep coming more clearly into focus. For one thing I’m getting some sleep! And my energy level is well above where it’s been. Maybe the biggest thing so far is that I am feeling the possibility of continued healing in areas that I had really become very resigned about. Oh, and yes my friends are commenting how great I look. I can’t wait to schedule my next session. Jane you are an angel. Thank you for everything.

Thank you, Jane!

Jane and I have known each other for 17 years and have been exchanging Jin Shin Jyutsu sessions regularly for 11 years. She has the ability to go into the bullseye of a point to release deep tension which not many practitioners have been trained to do. She can hold a very healing space for her clients and really loves what she does. In the many years of her giving me treatments, I can say that I trust Jane to do the very best in eleviating the different issues my body presents. Thank you, Jane!

Judy Dragon

I am so thankful for this ancient art

I had been suffering from IBS and chronic nausea for the past 5 years, it had gotten so bad this last year I finally turned to an alternative source. After one session with Jane my vomiting stopped and I was able to keep my nausea under control, something I hadn’t been able to do for years. I am a true believer in Jin Shin Jyutsu for any ailment or condition, or to keep our bodies balanced and revitalized. I am so thankful for this ancient art and to Jane, I am now able to get on with my regular routines of everyday life.

I credit regular Jin Shin

I credit regular Jin Shin treatments from Jane Pritchard as a key element in my recovery during a painful divorce. Jane has a loving, caring presence. I’ve always considered Jin Shin sessions with her as a gift of health, centering, and empowerment. I’ve been blessed to know Jane.

Linda Voss

Jin Shin brought vitality into my life

At the time I started Jin Shin treatments with Jane I’d had a chronic Irritable Bowel Syndrome condition for 40 years and was just hanging in there as best I could. Physically I was weak and mentally exhausted. Jin Shin calmed down the IBS almost immediately. Now, after fifteen years of regular treatments, I’m a pretty spry 75 year old. I don’t have arthritis like other people my age, and I don’t take a lot of meds either. Jin Shin brought sanity and vitality into my life and Jane has been a gracious and knowledgeable provider. Friends and family who’ve gone to her for treatments agree. I consider Jin Shin Jyutsu with Jane a commitment to keeping my excellent health.

she is a gem!

i’m one of those people who is very selective about who touches or works on my body. during my sessions with jane pritchard, my body felt safe enough to start relaxing and receive the gift of the work that she does in her jin shin practice. she is a gem!

Do yourself a favor and experience Jane’s art.

During an intense and very hectic time in my life, the most chaotic thus far, Jane generated pure relaxation in only a partial session. I remember feeling euphoric afterwards, like waking after a long deep sleep and feeling refreshed. I also remember having great clarity, as if, something inside was realigned. Do yourself a favor and experience Jane’s art.

“Jane is an expert practitioner

“Jane is an expert practitioner in Chinese energy medicine, essential oils and other health promoting technologies. She’s been part of my personal preventive medicine program for years and is the first one I turn to when I’m starting to feel “off” and tunes me right back up. Like any good but not all medical practitioners, Jane is continually researching available and new technologies to benefit her patients generally and specifically. I hold her in the highest regard.”

Jane played an intregal role

Jane played an intregal role in helping me get through my 1st pregnancy at age 35. Being a first time mother-to-be and considered “high risk” because of my age, Jane was wonderful at calming my body and my mind. As she performed Jin Shin Jystsu she, also, listened to my fears and gave me helpful visualizations and affirmations. I always walked out of my sessions with Jane feeling refreshed and balanced. I would recommend experiencing this restorative and healing modality that Jane offers to any of my friends and family.

Jane is an articulate communicator

Jane is an articulate communicator and a person of high integrity. She is also a great listener and sensitive practitioner with many years in Jin Shin Jyutsu and other health modalities. Because of her breadth of experience with many health care methods, she listens in a special way and is very creative in her healing strategies. A good person to have in your life.

I was deeply relaxed

I had a mini session with Jane several weeks ago after which I was more deeply relaxed than when I get a massage. There was, however, another benefit which I’ve recently discovered. Usually I don’t sit cross-legged because it hurts my knees. One day I decided to give it a try. To my amazement I sat for 10 or 15 minutes and had no knee pain whatever! Now, that’s a real benefit!

Jane creates a serene healing space

Jane creates a serene healing space for her clients’ relaxation and rejuvenation. She’s an good listener, intuitive healer, skilled practitioner and excellent teacher! If you haven’t experienced Jin Shin Jyutsu, give it a try. The most powerful realization I’ve learned through receiving JSJ sessions and learning some self-help techniques is that pain and discomfort come as a result of “stuck / blocked energy” along the JSJ flows or in our attitudes. One doesn’t have to “suffer or put up with it.”

Ryan Kelly Says

Jane is AMAZING! I am one of those guys that loves to relax. I live a fast paced life with owning my own business, being a husband, a father of two and active in the community. I’m a firm believer that relaxation is needed to rejuvenate. I had heard of “Jin Shin” and kind of brushed it off as I love massage. But I met Jane and she asked me to give her a try. It was AWESOME! I walked out of there with the same post relaxation as a massage, but it lasted far longer into the following days. Her room was relaxing, warm, comfortable and I didn’t even have to take any clothes off! I highly recommend Jane and Jin Shin. It’s wonderful!

Craig Gaylord Says

I have to say, I’m not one to go for the hippy dippy holistic stuff. I’m very skeptical of such things. BUT I knew Jane and trusted her. So I wasn’t quite sure how she was going to help me. My shoulder had been hurting. My Dr. said he didn’t think it was torn, so I asked Jane if Jin Shin would work. She said she thought it would. Well it’s funny because often she is touching so lightly you wonder if it’s helping, but I can tell you that after my two sessions, my shoulder feels so much better.
Each time it was weird, I got up feeling energized in my mind, but so calm in my body I felt like I’d just had an incredibly relaxing massage. My shoulder felt so much better too. I’m now a believer in JinShinJyutsu. I highly recommend Jane!!

bartsmom Says

Bart is a medium large 14+ year old dog and is suffering from both arthritis, neurological/spinal and heart problems. He so looks forward to his weekly Jin Shin Jyutsu sessions with Jane. After a few sessions, he walks in and lies right down for his relaxation. And you can see him relax and perk up right before your eyes! By the time our session is over, Bart is walking better and looks refreshed. Bart is on several medications but nothing seems to help as much as the Jin Shin. Before his treatment, he has a difficult time with steps and I must almost carry him. After, he is walking up and down a few steps by himself. We love Jane!

Jill Bulbeck Says

I have suffered all my adult life from chronic pain. It was as if my body could not let go of pain. It just kept building. I tried acupuncture and massage and conventional medicine. All had merit, but only relieved some of the intensity. I still had pain and it would continue to grow. Jin Shin Jyutsu really does work. Jane put me into a very deep state of relaxation, in a safe environment. My body was finally able to relax and release the pain. By the end of six weeks of treatment, my friends commented that I looked younger. I am pain free and really do feel younger. Bless you, Jane

Lizbeth Hamlin, LMFT Says

Jane has been working in the office next to mine for several years…what a treat to have her as a colleague and to be fortunate to have had her lovely and healing work on my own body! I often refer my own clients to her and this adds to depth of healing that it offers them to go deeper into their psychological, spiritual and emotional work. Jane is a gift and is so knowledgeable about many modalities of healing and living a life toward wholeness. I am also so happy to be both healed by her and to refer to her.

Ken Kelly Says

My session with Jane was a trip that I never expected. She was so gentle and yet her results were remarkable. I felt great and far more stress free than any other type of massage. She seemed to know exactly where to massage and how hard to get the perfect outcome. I feel confident in recommending Jane and Jin Jin-Shin-Jyutsu to anyone.

Jorgen Andresen Says

A few weeks ago I had an opportunity to experience a session with Jane, and it was incredible; she definitely knows what she is doing, and when I left her studio, I felt very uplifted and relaxed, a feeling most wonderful, but having a difficult time to explain exactly how it felt; however it was just beautiful, she is a very powerful practitioner and her studio most serene and peaceful. Just loved it and recommend her work to anyone.

Kerry Klein CID Says

I arrived at Janes studio in a complete frenzy after having a very crazy hectic morning with design appts. Jane took a couple of minutes to help me calm down before I lay on the table for her to proceed with the body work she so magically does. Within a half an hour I was completely relaxed and all anxiety was long gone. That particular treatment kept me relaxed for the next 2 days! I returned back to work with new focus and relaxation that was incredible. What a gifted and talented person Jane is. I would highly recommend her to all who lead stressful lives!

I recently had a session with Jane and found that she has a wonderful healing touch. She is truely a healer that has an intuitive gift. I have taught massage and own a massage school and have taught thousands of therapists. I can honestly say that I think Jane’s body work is second to none. I highly reccommend Jane’s work to anyone wanting to feel invigorated and relaxed at the same time.

Craig Gaylord Says

I went to see Jane Pritchard and have to admit that I was a bit skeptical about the whole thing, but when she got me on the table and started the Jin-Shin-Jyutsu on me, I found myself deeply relaxed, like all my stresses were just leaving me. What was different from a massage or similar therapy, was that afterward I felt refreshed and energized, yet still stress free and relaxed. So, if you haven’t tried it, I would recommend that you make and appointment with Jane.
