What is Jin Shin Jyutsu?

Is an ancient oriental Art of harmonizing life energy within the body. Said to predate Buddha and Moses, it was rediscovered in the early 1900′s by Master Jiro Murai, who, after recovery from a “terminal” illness, devoted himself to the revival of the Art for future generations.

He believed that the capacity to use this Art is born in all of us, like our hands, the tools with which it is applied.

Jin Shin Jyutsu is a gentle art designed to balance the body´s energies, allowing us to function more efficiently, heal more quickly and cope with the effects of busy lives.

 It is not a physical manipulation of tissue and uses only minimal pressure. The hands are used as “jumper cables,” contacting 26 “safety energy locks” to redirect, or unblock the flow of energy along its pathways.

Nowadays, Jin Shin Jyutsu is practiced throughout America, as well as in Canada, Europe (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, England, France, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands, Portugal, Scotland, Spain, Switzerland), South America (Brazil, Venezuela, ) and Israel, United Arab Emirates, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa, and Lebanon,. There are currently well over 20,000 students of Jin Shin Jyutsu worldwide.
