Jin Shin Jyutsu is a gentle art that promotes optimal health and well-being and facilitates our own profound healing capacity. Jin Shin Jyutsu is a valuable complement to conventional healing methods. Jin Shin Jyutsu induces relaxation, and greatly reduces the effects of stress. Stress has been widely recognized as causing everything from minor aches and pains to chronic health problems. The deep relaxation derived from Jin Shin Jyutsu brings balance to the body's energies, allowing the body to function better, feel better and heal more quickly.

What is Jin Shin Jyutsu? In Japanese Jin means 'knowing, compassionate human being', Shin means,'divine nature' or 'creation', and Jyutsu (pronounced Jit-su) means 'the art of'. Thus, Jin Shin Jyutsu can mean 'the art of divine creation through compassionate human intent'. It is based upon an all-inclusive, ever moving (changing) energy that circulates throughout the universe, within and without every organism. Jin Shin Jyutsu is a very ancient art designed in part to harmonize your physical energies. Jin Shin Jyutsu self-help sequences can be easily applied. Two such sequences are described in this website.

How does it work? Jin Shin Jyutsu employs twenty-six safety energy locks along energy pathways that feed life into our bodies. When one or more of the paths become blocked, the resulting stagnation can disrupt the local area and eventually disharmonise the complete path of energy flow. Holding these energy locks in combination can bring balance to mind, body and spirit. Jin Shin Jyutsu does not involve massage, manipulation of the bones or muscles, or use of substances. It is a gentle art, practiced by placing the fingertips over clothing on designated areas, to harmonise and restore the energy flow. This facilitates the reduction of tension and stresses which accumulate in the body through normal daily living. It is a gentle and unobtrusive, deeply relaxing, dynamic way of helping the body to help itself.

The History - According to the Kojiki Record of Ancient Things, A.D. 712, which remains in the Archives of the Imperial Palace in Japan, Jin Shin Jyutsu predates written record. For millennia the Keys to the treasures of this Art were verbally passed from generation to generation. Today, Jin Shin Jyutsu is experiencing renewed popularity. It is non-invasive, gentle and quiet, yet its powerful methods of rejuvenation make it helpful to virtually everyone.
In the late 1940s Mary Burmeister, a Japanese American visiting post World War II Japan, serendipitously met and began studying with Jiro Murai, a Master of Jin Shin Jyutsu who rediscovered the art in the early 1900s. Jin Shin Jyutsu had fallen into obscurity until the young Jiro Murai researched and applied it on himself to cure an incurable life threatening condition. Upon his recovery he devoted his entire being to the re-awakening of this ancient art. He asked Mary to bring this gift of life to the West.

Feedback & Testimonials

Dear Ed, Good news - Since your sessions, the pain in every part of my body has subsided. I am really flabbergasted (honest) I can't thank you enough - I am really amazed. Boxer- T C

I consider myself very blessed to have been receiving weekly sessions from you, (Ranjana) over the past few months. This session has been so lovingly administered; I feel it is a gift from God. When I leave I am nourished and restored knowing that I am being completely taken care of. The experience is of very deep relaxation, and there is the added help of having homework that I can practise myself. At a very deep level I have been enabled to move energy blocks that have accumulated in my body, and I am gradually becoming lighter… Values Guide - L B

After the sessions with you I feel truly happy. The kind of happiness I have never experienced before. It is as if I never knew what happiness could be, or what living could be…Thank you. Biodynamic Therapist - M D

I must confess that when I started to have JSJ sessions with my friend Ranjana I was a bit sceptical about its effectiveness. But my doubts proved to be completely unfounded in view of the results I’ve experienced. I’m not a very easy case because I’ve a quite long history of food and respiratory allergies as well as joint and bone problems. But Ranjana hasn’t given up on me like so many other healers did. And gradually my complaints are being released. A big thanks to Ranjana and JSJ. Artist - MW

I’ve been trying to find a way to express in just a few words, the effect that you, Jin Shin Jyutsu and EFT have had on my life, but it is so hard to describe such an experience. At our first Jin Shin Jyutsu session I experienced something very profound and beautiful and changes have been occurring ever since, inside, outside and on all levels – physically, emotionally and most definitely, spiritually. Words cannot express how much gratitude I feel for all the help you have given me, and for all the love and joy that knowing you has brought t my life. You are one of life’s treasures, and the work you do is very special. With all my heart – Thank you. Retired Legal Secretary - FT
