Jin Shin Jyutsu is a gentle, hands-on healing modality that restores health to the energy pathways that carry life energy in our bodies and support our well-being.

A Japanese modality dating back thousands of years, Jin Shin Jyutsu means ‘the Art (Jyutsu) of the Creator (Jin) through the Person of Compassion (Shin)’.    

The art of Jin Shin is often described as 'acupuncture with Reiki hands'. The light placing of the practitioner’s hands, on certain areas of a person’s clothed body, allow blocked pathways to open. The body and mind can then return to its natural state of being in a relaxed flow with universal energy.    

Our energy pathways are like rivers that bring life to all our cells, to our fascia, blood, muscle and bone. These pathways also regulate our mental and our emotional ways of being. They can be seen as the blueprint that our bodies, minds, and our lives are built on.  

When certain energetic pathways become stagnant or constricted, then stress, pain and illness can be expressed. Where our life-energy is able to flow along their pathways, our mental and physical tensions naturally release, the breath becomes deep, full and free, and there is an awakening into an awareness of deep peace, on all levels.

A session is individualized for a person’s health needs at the time of the session. We listen to the energy pulses in the wrists, then apply a series of hand positions that unblock particular pathways to restore the flow of energy in an area. A session typically lasts 50 – 60 minutes.

Jin Shin Jyutsu can help with health projects such as reducing pain, shock and fatigue, increase immune function, improve digestion and detoxing and ease anxiety, depression or a general sense of disconnect. Most of all, it creates a deep relaxation that supports the body’s innate ability to help, to know and to heal itself. The gentleness of Jin Shin Jyutsu is both deeply supportive and powerfully healing.
