The recognition that life energy animates all things is not just a philosophical belief, it is also a practical approach to life and healing. Modern science focuses on biological aspects of life, with a beginning and an end and all the physical parts of our existence. However Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioners and, other traditional medicine everywhere where there is no other means of help, look beyond the physical aspect and recognize that life exists thanks to a single living force that manifests into every living organisms (plants, insects, animals and human beings). Prana, Chi, Tao refer to that universal life energy. They promote physical, emotional and spiritual wholeness at once.
Jin Shin Jyutsu is said to pre-date the births of Moses and Buddah. It originated in Japan, and Jin Shin Jyutsu ways were passed on generation to generation by verbal teachings until the concept of the Art was almost completely faded. In early 1900’s Jiro Murai, born to a family of Doctors, became very ill. He decided to withdrew on a mountain where he practiced Jin Shin Jyutsu flows and Mudras to save his life. When he recovered he devoted his life to the study of Jin Shin Jyutsu.
In 1950’s Mary Burmeister, a young Americano-Japanese lady, went to Japan for a visit. She met with Jiro Murai who offered to train her in the Art of Jin Shin Jyutsu. Mary Burmeister accepted and studied the Art with her mentor for several years. In early 1960’s she returned to Scottsdale, Arizona where she then herself trained instructors as well as heal public through her Art.
The body is treated as a series of energy flows each pulling and pushing one another and, each existing at a different depth within the body. Man is made up of 6 depths. A typical session lasts about 40 to 50 min. The practitioner listens to the pulse of the receiver and chooses which flow needs attention. Specific flows will take care of specific health projects. Jin Shin Jyutsu is applied lightly over clothing. Life energy penetrates deeper into the skin and the body, reaches the bone area and the rises back up to the skin surface again. The most common effect for the receiver is that of a very deep state of relaxation during treatment.
As Harmonious energy flow is being restored with the receivers body, he/she will experience a marked improvement in his/her general/daily well being. Receivers will enjoy a more positive outlook and an eagerness to embrace life with ease and confidence. In a way we can say that Jin Shin Jyutsu is a way of balancing and correcting life energy flow within the body. It is the awakening to awareness of complete harmony within the self and the Universe.
