Jin Shin Jyutsu (JSJ) is a technique used to harmonize the flow of energy in the body. Its principles are firmly rooted in ancient healing traditions and teaches us how to use specific hands-on sequences to help us restore emotional equilibrium, relieve pain and release the causes of acute and chronic conditions. It can be utilized as an adjunct to other therapies or medication and can be helpful for people of all ages and states of health. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6hEsd5by0tc
Energy flow for healing
When the flow of energy is disrupted in the human body, dysfunction and disease can begin to occur. With a gentle touch applied over clothes, the Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner works to determine where the areas of energy blockage are present and utilizes specific hand holds on the body to clear stagnations and restore proper energy flow. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_jvOPfavvZs. This restoration of energy flow helps the body clean and rebuild while exhaling tension and stress which accumulate through daily living. A Jin Shin Jyutsu hands-on session lasts about an hour. As the pain and movement limitations are decreased or removed, then more traditional forms of physical therapy such and balance and exercise can be added to help maintain the gains achieved.
Chronic pain or mental/emotional health help
There are many conditions that have been helped by JSJ treatments. These include but are not limited to musculoskeletal pain, HA/migraines, digestive disorders, autoimmune disorders, anxiety and depression, difficulty sleeping, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, arthritic conditions and lingering effects of Covid. Our newest therapist, Karen, is a certified JSJ practitioner and is having really good success with treating some of these health concerns. She is integrating myofascial work and traditional physical therapy with JSJ to help her clients reach their full potential.
