All of the normal functions in our bodies use energy in various forms. When that energy is too much or too little, organs and tissues can’t function correctly and tightness, dysfunction, pain or disease may result. The energy which flows within our bodies also flows into and out of our bodies. When two people touch, the energy flows between them.
Jin Shin Jyutsu uses this information as the basis for a session. By gently placing the hands on the clothes, over specific places (called Safety Energy Locks), it is possible to restore balance to the energy flow in the body. As the energy flows, it causes the blood, containing hemoglobin, oxygen, hormones and nutrients, to redirect its movement. This movement is the beginning of the healing of the physical body.
An important aspect of Jin Shin Jyutsu is learning and being self help treatments. These are methods of putting your hands on your own Safety Energy Locks in a specific order to help balance the energy and to get to know how it feels when your energy is flowing. This self-help aspect of Jin Shin Jyutsu is unique and is the key to successful progression. As you heal, your energy and your awareness of the energy can both increase.
Over time, as you regularly use the multiple self-help tools, you create an opportunity to experience your life changing in positive ways. This will put you on a gentle journey towards increased harmony, with less stress-induced symptoms, hence a more healthy life. Sometimes, there are more dramatic results.
