one possible translation
JIN SHIN JYUTSU is the Art of releasing tensions which are the causes for various symptoms in the body. Our bodies contain several energy pathways that feed life into all of our cells. When one or more of these paths become blocked, this damming effect may lead to discomfort or even pain. This blockage or stagnation will not only disrupt the local area but will continue and eventually disharmonize the complete path or paths of the energy flow.
Through Jin Shin Jyutsu our awareness is awakened to the simple fact that we are endowed with the ability to harmonize and balance ourselves (in rhythm with and through the universe) physically, mentally and spiritually.
The name Jin Shin Jyutsu was developed at the beginning of the 20th century by Master Jiro Murai. He explored his body partly with extreme measures and discovered and felt the energy pathways that constantly flow through us. After being cured of a life-threatening illness through Jin Shin Jyutsu, Jiro Murai dedicated the rest of his life to the research and development of Jin Shin Jyutsu. The insight and knowledge he gained from both the study of a number of sources, such as the Kojiki (Book of Ancient Things), and from personal experience, he imparted to Mary Burmeister, who then brought Jin Shin Jyutsu to the United States in the mid-1950s. In the early sixties, Mary Burmeister began teaching the art.
Learning Jin Shin Jyutsu takes us deeper into ourselves. Through this process we become aware of the wisdom of our body and learn to understand its messages and use them to restore balance. Jin Shin Jyutsu can be used as self-help, as well as by a trained practitioner.
Jin Shin Jyutsu does not involve massage, manipulation of muscles, or use of medications or substances. It is a gentle art practiced by placing the fingertips (over clothing) on specific energy centers to harmonize and restore the flow of energy. This assists in relieving stress and tension which accumulate in our ordinary daily lives.
For those of us who suffer from stress or health disorders, and for those simply wishing to participate actively in maintaining health, harmony and well-being, the art of Jin Shin Jyutsu is a simple and powerful method available to everyone!
