Jin Shin Jyutsu®

Jin Shin Jyutsu is the ancient art of harmonizing body, mind and spirit with gentle touch and is an invaluable complement to conventional healing methods, inducing relaxation, reducing the effects of stress, and assisting our innate healing capacity.


Our bodies contain several energy pathways that feed chi, or life energy, into all of our cells. When one or more of these pathways become blocked, this damming effect may lead to discomfort or even pain. This blockage or stagnation will not only disrupt the local area but over time may eventually disharmonize the complete path or paths of the energy flow.

Jin Shin Jyutsu brings balance to the body’s energies, which promotes optimal health and well-being, and facilitates our own healing capacity. It is a valuable complement to conventional healing methods, inducing relaxation and reducing the effects of stress. It involves the application of the hands for gently balancing the flow of life energy in the body; more generally, it is the awakening to awareness of complete harmony within the self and the universe.

Jin Shin Jyutsu employs twenty-six “safety energy locks” along energy pathways that feed life into our bodies. Holding the energy locks in combination can bring balance to mind, body, and spirit.

I began my journey with Jin Shin Jyutsu in 2002, and have since attended many seminars as the depth and potential of this art continue to unfold.  I believe each experience that we have and all that we do bring us to where we are at this moment.  My 30 years of meditation, as a practitioner and trainer have also contributed to recognizing the potential and enormous capacity that Jin Shin Jyutsu offers in bringing greater harmony and balance to the life of the body, the mind, emotions and spirit.
