Self Help for Daily Living & Regional Self Help Workshops 

Some of the faculty sharing their favourite self help finger holds….

The foundation of Jin Shin Jyutsu is the unique, gentle and profoundly effective self help. Basic finger poses, Inju in Japanese and Mudras in Sanskrit, engage us in self awareness to balance emotions and ‘Attitude’ that may lead to dis-ease and disharmony in body, mind and spirit. Our hands are with us wherever we are so we can utilize this simple self help at any time, day or night. Holding a finger and/or thumb can assist in dissolving tension and stress, reduction of pain, harmonizing the breath and restoring natural rhythms and circulation patterns in the body for enhanced wellbeing. It is through this practice of the Art that we come to “Now Know (Help) Myself” … for specific projects, see diagrams below.
For best results establish this as a daily routine – begin your day in a relaxed, positive state of BEing … close the day in Gratitude. It’s so simple…hold thumb and fingers on one hand, for a few minutes each, then swap sides. Try for one week or more and see how you feel 
Self Help Workshops are regularly available in New Zealand offering an opportunity to gain deeper understanding of Jin Shin Jyutsu under the skilful guidance of a certified Self Help Tutor.

Main Central Energy Flow explained…

The Main Central flow (above) is a key self help routine that can be used daily to clean and energise the body. If we are very fatigued we may use this flow twice a day, once in the morning to energise us for the day and again at night to release any accumulated stress from our day. Jin Shin Jyutsu is an Art so we may also be creative with this flow and apply it in a number of ways .. hold each step for 4 (deep) breaths, 2 out and 2 in, focus on the out breath (Exhale), to enhance the letting go.

 Jin Shin Jyutsu Self help
Jin Shin Jyutsu (Art of Man & the Creator) is the art of knowing yourself.
We all possess an innate awareness which holds within it all the tools that we need to genuinely enrich our health & the quality of our lives. This awareness has been deadened by the society in which we live & our reliance on external information & stimulus. Jin Shin Jyutsu enables us to re-experience this awareness. Moreover, it teaches us how to utilize it for greater physical, mental & spiritual well-being. When the stress & strain of daily living disrupts the movement of life energy (Chi) our Mind, Body & Spirit are all affected. Not only do we succumb to worry, Fear, anger, sadness & pretentions, but we increase our tendency to become ill or out of balance. Quite simply Jin Shin Jyutsu (JSJ) is a way to balance the life energy.

This Self help course consists of the study of three Jin Shin Jyutsu books
Book 1: Introduction to JSJ, the energy flows of the body, Main Central channel, some of the body function energy flows & finger holds.
Book 2: 26 safety energy locks & holds that can be used to recharge them
Book 3: finger & toe holds & diagonal energy flows

Jin Shin Jyutsu is the study of relationships, and Nature in Man.

Jin Shin Jyutsu® is the Art of harmonizing life energies in the body to enhance natural health, vitality and a sense of well-being. This gentle art offers us simple, practical tools and time-honoured methods to release and harmonise symptoms whilst also addressing root cause, the source of which can be found in five key attitudes.  To begin, we learnt that in holding thumbs, fingers or palms, and placing fingertips on specific energy locations known as Safety Energy Locks, we can help harmonize and restore energy flow, alleviating stress, anxiety, fatigue, pain and much more.

Focusing on Now Know (Help) Myself, referencing Mary Burmeister’s 3 Self-Help books and other beneficial resources, we explore simple and effective ways to help ourselves, and others, through our breath, and our hands and start to unveil what it means to live life in harmony.

Jin Shin Jyutsu can be utilised in every day life, for ourselves and others. Exploring physio-philosophy, key principles, safety energy locks (SEL’s), depths and practical routines this is a way to deepen personal study.

Self Help For Critical Illness

Jin Shin Jyutsu at times of critical illness: 

One of the most important studies on Jin Shin Jyutsu and cancer care was done in 2012 by the University of Kentucky Markey Cancer Center showing that patients reported significant improvement in side effects of cancer treatment following just one Jin Shin Jyutsu session.

Presented by Jin Shin Jyutsu integrative practitioner, Jennifer Bradley at the Markey Cancer Center Research Day, the study detailed 159 cancer patients who had received sessions. Before and after each Jin Shin Jyutsu session, Jennifer Bradley asked patients to assess their symptoms of pain, stress and nausea on a scale of 0-10, with 0 representing no symptoms.
The study found that in each session patients experienced significant improvement in the areas of pain, stress, and nausea with the first visit, and in subsequent visits as well.
“I was pleased to see quantitatively the improvements that patients noted in primary areas of discomfort,” said Jennifer.  “It was interesting to note that regardless of age, sex or diagnosis, cancer patients received a statistically significant improvement in the side effects from treatment. It is encouraging to note that Jin Shin Jyutsu made improvements in these areas without adding additional unwanted effects that so often occur with medication interventions.”

The Art of Gentle Touch: Self Help for people with Cancer.

Jin Shin Jyutsu for your Animals with Adele Leas  ∞

Dog / Cat Chart

Chart composed by Janet Harris & Judy Stolz

owner caressing gently her dog

Over the past decades Adele Leas has pioneered Jin Shin Jyutsu for Your Animal Companion, a direct outgrowth of Jin Shin Jyutsu (JSJ) as practiced by thousands of people who receive sessions and practice daily self-help.
Dogs, cats and horses, along with other animals, have an understanding of this non-verbal Art and seem to have been waiting all their lives to be touched like this. Mary Burmeister, who brought this Art to the West from Japan in the 1950’s tells us that through JSJ our awareness is awakened to the simple fact that we are endowed with the ability to harmonize and balance ourselves (in rhythm with the universe) physically, mentally and spiritually. She tells us “Jin Shin Jyutsu is an innate part of man’s wisdom – simplifying the complexities of existence – and is truly an Art of Living.” Now we have the ability to share this Art of Living with all Creatures.
Thank you Adele!

To find out more about helping your animals, please contact Sandy Smith. Details on practitioner locator page
