JIN SHIN JYUTSU®Jin Shin Jyutsu® is an ancient Japanese Healing Art which harmonizes body, mind and spirit. Jin Shin Jyutsu® utilizes a form of light touch on 26 locations (Safety Energy Locks) on each side of the body.
Jin Shin Jyutsu was rediscovered in Japan in the early 1900's by Master Jiro Mirai. He passed on his teachings to Mary Burmeister who brought Jin Shin Jyutsu to the United States in the 1950's.
Jin Shin Jyutsu is a wonderful complement to conventional healing methods. Jin Shin Jyutsu may elicit the relaxation response, and decrease symptoms of stress, anxiety, and fatigue.
