A gentle self-help method for harmonizing energy flow, strengthening the immune system, and stimulating the body’s self-healing response, Jin Shin Jyutsu is an ancient Japanese healing art akin to an easier form of acupressure. The system centers on the 52 Safety Energy Locks (SELs) of the body’s energy pathways, points where energy tends to become stuck easily and thus can also be released easily, usually by holding just two energy points simultaneously.
In this full-color guide to Jin Shin Jyutsu, complete with detailed step-by-step illustrations, experienced practitioner Tina Stümpfig explains how to hold the SEL points in easy sequences to address specific ailments, conditions, and injuries. She also details a variety of finger mudras (finger holds) that can serve as shortcuts for bringing awareness to and alleviating a number of issues, such as anxiety, insomnia, digestive problems, and back pains. The author describes the major overarching energy flows of the body and shows how, when a pathway becomes blocked, the energy ceases to flow freely and stagnates. Initially the channel is only blocked locally, though in the long run a blockage creates imbalance along the entire energy pathway and can thus affect the whole body. Using Jin Shin Jyutsu to work with the SELs allows you to quickly and easily release these energetic blockages, both acute or chronic. The polarity of the energy flow in our hands--energy flowing out on the right, flowing in on the left--functions like a starter cable that reestablishes broken energy links. At the same time, conscious breathing allows us to deepen our cosmic awareness and understanding of issues connected to the SELs on the inner level.
Whether you are facing allergies, exhaustion, pain, or inflammation, the healing touch of Jin Shin Jyutsu offers a simple self-help tool that can quickly alleviate and soothe symptoms, kickstart the healing process, and improve overall health.
