literally translated from Japanese:
Jin – MAN OF KNOWING AND COMPASSION
Shin – CREATOR
Jyutsu – ART
 
Jin Shin Jyutsu is the inborn knowledge of how to keep your own energy in a good flow, free from blockades. It helps us to heal the body from INSIDE OUT by removing blockades and stuck energy and keeping a constant flow of our vital energy, prana – our life force. Through holding fingers, or other pressure points on the body our organism can achieve homeaostasis and release pain, stress and areas of discomfort.
 
 
Jin Shin Jyutsu is the physio-philosophy of the human body with integrated psychological aspects.
Jin Shin Jyutsu is our innate memory and knowledge of our own well-being of body, mind and soul.
Jin Shin Jyutsu is the focus on causes, not the symptoms.
Jin Shin Jyutsu is an ART to strengthen the innate self-healing powers -of our own and those of others.
Jin Shin Jyutsu is an ancient Japanese art, and goes back to the first Millennium BC.
Jin shin Jyutsu is the AWARENESS, the UNDERSTANDING and the ART (technique) of/for MYSELF
Jin Shin Jyutsu is the cosmic artless art to KNOW (help) MYSELF
 
In other words:
If your car is stuck in the mud, it just needs a friend who gives the car a nudge from behind while you are giving gas. The Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner is this friend who is jumper cabling your energy with his/her hands.
 
 
“Medicine is not only a science; it is also an art. It does not consist of prescribing pills and putting on bandages; it deals with the very individual processes in life, which must be understood before they may be guided.”
Philippus Theophrastus Paracelsus (1493-1541), German doctor and reformer of medicine.
