Dis-ease comes most often from old behavior patterns and attitudes, lifestyle stresses, and physical injuries. Jin Shin Jyutsu addresses dis-ease at its root. The harmonizing that comes from the work has effects that are cumulative, and often subtle, which release harmful patterns from the cellular level. The work is deep and profound, yet quite gentle to the touch.
In Chinese medicine, it is thought that most illness is a failure of the circulation — the inability to assimilate the new and eliminate the old.
Within us we all have an energy system, which feeds the function of all the other systems, such as the circulatory system and the nervous system. The essential life force energy which animates and is inherent in all things is call chi (Qi) and moves along pathways, called meridians, which feeds life into all cells. The energy pathway may be compared to a river. A slow moving river leaves sediment along its path. Accumulated body tension is like sediment in a slow moving river. Application of the hands during a Jin Shin Jyutsu treatment quickens the energy flow and moves the sediment from the energy pathway, relieving pain or other symptoms of tension and stress.
Through the art of Jin Shin Jyutsu, these pathways are stimulated, the life force battery recharged. Tensions, which cause various symptoms, are released through this dynamic process.
