In May 2006 I was diagnosed with breast cancer and after a partial mastectomy I received chemotherapy and then radiotherapy. Jin Shin Jyutsu helped me through every part of that process. It helped me to mentally prepare for what my body would go through and kept me calm and centered. I didn’t have a huge see-saw of emotions. During the entire period of treatment I was receiving regular Jin Shin Jyutsu sessions and suffered none of the usual side effects of chemo or radio. Even the nausea was kept at bay with a few simple holds I could apply on myself. When I had my check up at the conclusion of radiotherapy, the Doctor was amazed at the ultra sound – she said “you have virtually no tissue damage whatsoever”. That was only 9 days after I finished radio (I had none of the usual surface burning either).

I burned my finger recently in hot oil. The pain was intense and I asked my daughter to place her hands in a Jin Shin Jyutsu hold over the affected area as I ran it under cold water. She held for a further few minutes and the pain all but disappeared. I continued preparing dinner but the discomfort returned and she once again held for another few minutes and once again the pain released. Because I was busy we continued this alternating process and by the time we sat down to eat the pain had gone and the previously angry looking burn had lost all redness. Just another wonder of the beautiful art of Jin Shin Jyutsu.

I was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) five months before I began receiveing Jin Shin Jyutsu treatments. Jin Shin Jyutsu has made a huge difference to my health and general wellbeing. Compared to nearly everyone in my CFS group I have recovered faster and more fully. Jin Shin Jyutsu has helped me do this in two ways; by enabling my body to heal itself when it otherwise couldn’t and by making me, as a person, more able to cope with the emotional ups and downs of having a chronic illness.

I only had 2 months where I could not work and built back up to fulltime work within 9 months. During my recovery Jin Shin Jyutsu has allowed me to minimise the damage I have to my body when have pushed it a bit too far. So I have been able to maintain fulltime work ever since and now have a normal social life which is a feat in itself. I dont believe I could have done any of this if I had not had regular Jin Shin Jyutsu treatments and would recommend Jin Shin Jyutsu to anyone who is having problems with their health, getting pregnant or just for general wellbeing.

What has continued to prove to me that Jin Shin Jyutsu really makes a difference is that I have not only been able to manage and resolve all the niggles my body continues to throw at me but when I have missed treatments my health has deteriorated quickly. Because I was able to use Jin Shin Jyutsu to manage almost all of my pain, unlike most CFS patients, I did not need to take painkillers throughout my illness. I continue to make progress back to complete health and consider Jin Shin Jyutsu the keystone of my treatment.

After discovering I had cancer I started on two Jin Shin Jyutsu treatments a week. The cancer had spread to three lymph nodes requiring both chemotherapy and radiation therapy. My aim was to get myself in the best of health possible before starting chemo to minimise the side effects and also to enable myself to continue working fulltime. Coming up to my first chemo treatment I have to say I was feeling better than I have for years. My Jin Shin Jyutsu treatments were increased to five times a week. My practitioner worked on the common side effects my chemo caused eg. nausea and vomiting, sore mouth, fatigue and my immune system. The results have been nothing short of amazing! While I suffered from a couple of days of fatigue after my first treatment, all subsequent treatments I have had so far have been great – no side effects whatsoever and still working fulltime! Friends and family cannot believe the results either questioning whether its actually chemo I’ve been given and not just water and wanting to know what my secret is to looking so good and healthy. I wholeheartedly recommend the art of Jin Shin Jyutsu as an extremely effective treatment for those undergoing cancer therapies.
