Jin Shin Jyutsu

Jin Shin Jyutsu (JSJ) is the practise of releasing tensions in the body.  When our energy pathways are blocked, various symptoms arise that can cause discomfort and pain. This physio-philosophy uses the   hands to gently balance the flow of energy in the body.   The hands are used as “jumper cables” to contact 26 “safety energy locks” to unblock the flow of energy along its pathways. 

This ancient art predates Buddha. It was revived in the early 1900’s by Master Jiro Murai.  After healing himself from serious illness, he dedicated his life to reviving the art.  He believed we all have the ability to use this art we were born with.

Literally translated, Jin Shin Jyutsu means:

  • Jin: Man of Knowing and Compassion
  • Shin: Creator
  • Jyutsu: Art


In the 1950’s, Mary Burmeister, a student of Master Murai, brought Jin Shin Jyutsu to the States.   Currently there are workshops held around the world, including in Canada.

Jin Shin Jyutsu sessions last about one hour.  The practitioner “listens” to the energy pulses in the wrists of the client, then, uses a “flow” appropriate for unblocking the particular pathways and restoring energy. A “flow” is a specific series of hand placements that stimulate circulation of energy along the given pathway.  Each pathway in the body has its distinctive function.

Most clients feel deep relaxation as they let go of stress during a session. This gentle art is suitable for all ages and abilities. Consult with a qualified Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner for information and treatment.
