Body-Wise Soul-Wise Healing

Jin Shin Jyutsu Physio-Philosophy

Physio-philosophy: awareness for myself

Jin Shin Jyutsu is a natural art of healing and rejuvenation which helps to re-activate our own profound healing capacity by bringing balance to the flow of life energy. Jin Shin Jyutsu means the Art of the Creator expressed through the aware and compassionate human being.

Its unique Physio-Philosophy lies in the activation of 26 “Safety Energy Locks”. The hands are used as “jumper cables” and gently hold any two “Safety Energy Locks” to redirect, or unblock the flow of life energy along its pathways. Every Safety Energy Lock has a number related to it that expresses a numerological, psychological, spiritual and bodily meaning.

Holding individualised combinations of Safety Energy Locks helps release the tensions and disharmonies that lead to a wide variety of physical symptoms as well as mental-emotional and spiritual stress.

Physio-psychology: understanding for myself

By learning and applying the art of Jin Shin Jyutsu we engage in self-study, self-help. Through the process of “Now Know Myself” we come to recognise the wisdom of the body and learn to interpret the messages provided by our ‘symptoms’ and so take care of the whole human being by restoring energy flow and balance.

Physio-physiology: technique for myself

There are two important distinctions between Jin Shin Jyutsu and many other massage and oriental healing modalities to which it is often compared. Firstly, Jin Shin Jyutsu is an art, and not just a technique; a technique is a mechanical application, whereas an art is a skilful creation. Secondly, Jin Shin Jyutsu is not a physical manipulation of tissue and uses only minimal pressure.

Whether we are addressing existing “labels” or disharmonies, or whether we simply wish to participate actively in maintaining daily health, harmony and well being for ourselves and our family, the art of Jin Shin Jyutsu is a simple and powerful tool, available to us all!

As Jin Shin Jyutsu releases deep tensions and facilitates our own profound healing capacity, it is a simple, beautiful and valuable complement to other natural as well as conventional therapies. It is also enjoyed by many (pre)-pregnant mothers (and fathers) to assist with carrying and giving birth to their children.

There are obviously two educations: one teaches us how to make a living and the other teaches us how to live.
