Jin Shin Jyutsu is an ancient Japanese form of energy-healing which is based upon similar principles to acupuncture: the freeing of "blockages" in the flow through our energy network, but instead of inserting needles, there is a gentle laying-on of hands! It is really worth exploring this self-help method with a good book on the subject – highly recommended is or through treatment by a qualified, experienced practitioner to give you a solid basis from which to then work on yourself. It can also be used complimentarily to other preventative treatments, to speed up the healing process.
I have had some great experiences with this, notably a considerable alleviation of inflammation in my shoulder ("frozen shoulder") which was a serious obstacle to my profession as guitarist. I also cleared up very frequent heart-rhythm disturbances that had been going on daily for months, at the same time.
On another occasion I applied it in the middle of a heavy cold and was amazed to experience a phlegm-free last phase, for the very 1st time. Up until that point I had always suffered from coughing and congestion with such an affliction. Just recently I was astonished to see how quickly I could relieve seasickness whilst on a ferry coming back from an island in the north-west of Scotland – it was a matter of seconds!
Because it is holistic, it addresses all aspects of mental and physical health, as well as the causality and connections between organs and the various energy points. You can discover your body anew and in great depth here!
