What is Jin Shin Jyutsu, and how does it work?

After a long day at work, do you have a dull headache? Take a seat on the sofa. Draw your legs together and keep your little toes together. You feel much better after ten minutes. Spinning? Jin Shin Jyutsu, no. This millennia-old healing practice, which uses just the hands to treat patients, aids in the treatment of a number of maladies including back pain, mental crises, and sleep difficulties.

Jin Shin Jyutsu's teachings are based on the Japanese martial art of Jin Shin Jyutsu.

The treatment is based on the concept that there are 26 "safety energy locks" on the body (all duplicated). These locks snap when under a lot of pressure. Energy blockages form, resulting in complaints such as tension, pain, and depression, which are, according to Jin Shin Jyutsu, warning signals that allow us to take countermeasures in time.

The name "streaming" refers to the treatment's goal of unlocking safety locks, restoring energy flow, and giving us new strength. Following the pre-talk, the Jin-Shin-Jyutsu practitioner examines the body (while lying on one's back) for apparent indicators of imbalance and stress, such as lifted shoulders. The wrists are then embraced in order to feel the "pulses." This refers to the flow of energy within the various circuits of Jin Shin Jyutsu ("organ currents").

Then it is decided which current to work with before the safety energy locks are held in place for a few minutes at a time. In total, the treatment lasts about an hour.

"Streaming" on a large scale

Jin Shin Jyutsu does not claim to be a miracle cure or a replacement for medical treatment. However, it is beneficial. After the initial "flowing" by a practitioner, current problems (such as tension) frequently subside. The impact lasts up to 24 hours for chronic problems (such as migraines and hay fever).

If persons affected also do something else for themselves, such as change their diet, ten treatments spaced a few days apart can provide lasting relief. The treatment can also help with ongoing sorrow, grieving, or a life crisis by bringing healing change processes "in flow" and providing support. Many people do it just to feel good.

What do I need to be aware of with Jin Shin Jyutsu?

The effect of the flow can be so intense that you have to lie down after the treatment; alcohol may still have a stronger effect than usual hours later.

Is it possible for me to use Jin Shin Jyutsu on my own?

Jin Shin Jyutsu is primarily designed to assist people in assisting themselves. 
That is why medical professionals advise their patients to "stream" as well. 
This isn't problem because, unlike acupressure, it's not matter of precisely striking specific areas to allow life force to flow freely. 
All you have to do is place your fingers or your hand in an area of around seven cm. 
However, for some people, doing nothing else for up to ten minutes, such as grasping the middle finger of their hand, is challenging at first.
Self-treatment can be done later, for example, while watching TV. 
Many of us, by the way, "stream" ourselves without ever realizing it. 

To try: Instant relaxation through healing currents

In Jin Shin Jyutsu, the center current is seen as a source of life. Because it relaxes quickly, many people use it as a sleep aid. This current can bring bodily and mental equilibrium, as well as alleviate chronic ailments, when used on a daily basis. The following is how it works:

Take roughly three minutes for each of the following positions at first. After a little practice, you'll be able to tell when it's time to switch positions. You can also break up the exercise into numerous pieces throughout the day or skip positions entirely.

  • Place one or more fingers or the palm of your right hand in the middle of your head and keep them there until you have gone through all the points.
  • Place one or more fingers or the palm of the left hand between the eyebrows.
  • Place one or more fingers of the left hand on the tip of the nose.
  • Place the finger(s) of the left hand on the breastbone between the breasts.
  • Place the finger(s) of the left hand on the lower end of the sternum (pit of the stomach).
  • Place the finger(s) of the left hand on the pubic bone.
  • Keep the left hand on the pubic bone and finish by placing the right palm (or the back of the hand) on the coccyx.

Who is able to provide Jin Shin Jyutsu?

Jin Shin Jyutsu is a registered trademark. Mary Burmeister, an American, formed an umbrella organization in the United States (she was a student of the Japanese Jiro Murai, who rediscovered Jin Shin Jyutsu at the beginning of the 20th century). Waltraud Riegger-Krause, one of the few approved Jin Shin Jyutsu teachers and author of publications on the topic, was one of her students. In general, only those practitioners who can demonstrate that they have received self-treatment instruction and have attended at least three five-day practitioner courses may call themselves Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioners.
