The Art of Jin Shin Jyutsu
Jin Shin Jyutsu® is also referred to as "acupuncture without needles" because a light pressure is applied with the fingertips (over clothing) to specific points on the body to brings balance, releases deep tension, and restores harmonious flow along the energetic pathways of the meridian system. Despite this technicality Jin Shin Jyutsu® physio-phylosophy is considered an art, as it takes in consideration body, mind and spirit.
Although Japonese in origine, Jin Shin Jyutsu® is a close relative to Qi Gong as it is based on the five element theory and the use of the meridian system. Of the 397 acupuncture points, Jin Shin Jyutsu employs 26 (x 2) points along the energetic pathway of the meridian system to bring back balance in the 12 major organ flows as well as other specific flows within the human body. Hence, Jin Shin Jyutsu® is an invaluable complement to allopathic and holistic medicine.
A Jin Shin Jyutsu session lasts between 30 minute and an hour, and does not involve massage or the use of substances. It is a gentle, yet powerful art, practiced by making connection between points to trigger the body's memory of that natural flow. It is said that the practitioner uses his hands as "jumper cables."
Jin Shin Jyutsu and Integrative Energy Medicine™
Integrative Energy Medicine™ is based on the use of the meridian and Chakra systems to re-establish harmony in the client's health. As such Jin Shin Jyutsu is an natural extension to energy work. The Jin shin Jyutsu/energy practitioner who is in line with the client's energy flow will be called to use Jin Shin Jyutsu as needed.

A Jin Shin Jyutsu Session
A Jin Shin session begins with" listening to the pulses"which is done by holding both wrist at the base of the thumb. Thius will reveal to the practitioner information about the current flow of energy and state of being of the client, indicating where the person needs help. Unlike western medicine, the emphasis is not on diagnosis, but on harmonizing. All disease begins with blockages of energy which create an area of deficiency or excess/overload. The pulses show the practitioner the specific energy points that need to be held to restore the harmonious flow, without creating additional stress in the client's mind about the condition.
The remaining treatment consists of gently holding points in various combinations until complete harmony of energy and pulsation is established. There is no pain or physical manipulation. The practitioner uses his/her hands as "jumper cables" and the universal energy field in order to recharge the "battery of life." By enabling the universal energy to flow through the client's body it reawaken the body's natural healing ability.
As simple as this technique is, it yields amazing results physically, as well as emotionally. It is effective in relieving pain; stiff, spastic, or strained muscles and joints; respiratory conditions; appetite imbalance; and reproductive difficulties. It has a dramatic effect on emotional problems, and people frequently have experiences of spiritual integration during or after a session. Stress is alleviated and the client leaves feeling much more centered and relaxed. Although for chronic conditions several sessions might be needed, improvement is usually experienced after only one session.
Principle of Jin Shin Jyutsu
Jin Shin Jyutsu is based on the medirian system as well as the notion of a multidimensional body comprised of 6 depth. Below is an exceprt from Chantal Guillou-Brenan's JSJ Manual compiled from her notes, experience and the JSJ clases taken to become a certified Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner.
The Story of Creation from the 9th Depth to the Birth of the Body’s Blue Print
The 9, 8, 7 depths are impersonal depth share by all to which we come back to after we leave the body. (9 x 4= 36 depth)
9 DEPTH-About change, completion, the ending of one cycle and the beginning of a new cycle. The gap. The I AM.
8 DEPTH-The infinite movement in life, focus in one point. First concept of the creator/God/unmanifested Source. Potential for something concrete. The From this moment things expand into...
7 DEPTH-The Light, expression of the creator & connection to Source. Vibration of light (sun) to create our individual being. Planet: The Sun. Corresponds to the 4th cervical. and attached itself to the body 2 inches below the navel.
6 DEPTH-Source of my total being. The causal plane. Our individual expression of the Divine/ individuation of the etheric body—formless expression of the body to be. The 6 Depth energy caries the blue print of the body structure. We are a reflection of the Divine as The MOON reflect the Sun light. The 6th depth is our highest state of onsciousness. From the 6th depth we exist as an invisible source of life the energy is formless. It is the depth of the disembodied beings and the state of being prior to physical manifestation, the source of the 4 elements. Each of us is a direct manifestation and expression of the Source of life. Inhale/Exhale begin at the moment of conception when the MCV becomes flesh at the spine. The depth of the soul in which all exist until we go back to 7,8 9. God exhale coming down the front.
INHALING the energy is returning to the Divine within us (up the back).
EXHALE invisible breath DOWN the FRON
We are not talking about the body yet this is an energetically breath virtually from the crown to the big toe.
From the 8, 7 & 6 depth personal source of divine light the 6 Depth is the first state of self consciousness-duality/reflection from which we receive nourishment from the universe.
From the 6th Depth is born the Main Central Vertical.
From the Main Central Vertical is born everything else. From that flow comes duality. Our main central vertical flow goes down the front and up the back creating the auric field. (After 5 days cells divide) Gives birth to the L/R Supervisor.
From the Main Central Vertical are born the Right & Left Supervisor Flow (Yin/Yang) each side of the body -born at the knee. Each flow goes up and down each side of our body creating the 52 (26 x 2) Safety Energy Locks (SEL). Down the front leg and up the back to begin manifestation.
• LEFT Supervisor: Energy of the past. Bring energy to build the body, down the front up the back. Masculine energy vibration. Help to create the 5 depth the body is born from this energy flow. Logic common sense, start of life/logical mind. Energy of Generation.
• RIGHT Supervisor helps bring the energy of the present Feminine vibration has cleaning and regenerating qualities
is about inhaling clean energy. Helps bring in the five depth for us to manifest spacial relationship in the world–how we navigate our body through space. Problem on right created in the present
Tissue level ONLY reflects what is manifest on the energy level.
Supervisors on the energy level
LEFT has to do with the RIGHT side of the body
RIGHT as to do with the LEFT side of the body.
R L Creative artistic mind
Energy-the invisible state of being
L R Physical tissues-Manifest level
From the supervisory energy is born a mediating flow that helps connect the left and right diagonally connecting the & Spiralling down the body
Mediator is the activity principle is born at SEL3. The Mediator is the great comfort connection to spirit.
• Left and right Mediator flow from one side to the other side. Element is Water- Emotion is Energy in-Motion.
When the Mediators are in harmony the emotion is love.
When the Mediators are in disharmony we have attitudes: worry, fear, anger, sadness, grief, efforting which create diseases.
From the birth of the mediator (water) the energy dense down to build the 12 organ functions x 2 -12 on the right and 12 on the left from which is born the special body flows the densest energy flow that the body has. 72000 on the R. and 72000 on the left=144000 spec ail body flow..
1-MCV: Main Central Vertical-Fire
2 - 2 Supervisor left/right -Air
3 - 2 Mediators left/right -Water
4 - 12 Organ Function x 2 -Earth
5 - The Binder - Key/Wood 144,000 functions
SEL: Safety Energy Locks are sphere of energy (vortex/acupuncture points) up to 6 inches in diameters.
