Benefit from a Relaxing Jin Shin Jyutsu® Practitioner Session

JIN SHIN JYUTSU® practitioners are trained to assess the needs of the client using two methods, “Oriental Pulse Listening” and “Body Reading.”  We use these tools at the beginning, sometimes during, and after a session to make assessments and determine changes we may make to the session or recommendations. 

Oriental Pulse Listening tells us the overall condition of the body by feeling the radial pulses of the client by simultaneously using three fingers of each hand on the client’s wrists. It can tell us overloads, and deficiencies in the body, and what it needs. It may provide a possible action plan for the client.

Body reading (observing the characteristics and texture of the body) can indicate life’s wounds, traumas, and lifestyle issues manifested in the body. What a child has experienced early on may be observed in the body years later,  a raised shoulder, depressions in, or torques to the body, leg or feet, back tension, a finger or elbow that won’t straighten are just a few examples

During a session with a practitioner, the recipient remains fully clothed, lying face-up on a massage table with shoes, jewelry, and eyewear removed while the practitioner applies a gentle noninvasive touch using fingers and hands over the clothed body. Fingers and hands are applied to key areas of the body known as Safety Energy Locks (fuses in the body) in a defined sequence known as a flow or function energy flow. Many different flows are available to the practitioner based upon the results of the physical inspection and pulse listening of the body. 

As the work progresses the client relaxes further and may experience subtle internal sensations as the body’s natural energy flow is restored permitting the body’s natural healing ability to begin to work.

A practitioner of Jin Shin Jyutsu is not the “do-er,” he or she simply assists the flow of an infinite supply of universal energy. This process does not affect the practitioner’s energy supply.

It is suggested that recipients wear loose-fitting and comfortable clothing, eat lightly or fast before a session.

You can expect to experience a high degree of relaxation during and the session, and for some time afterward.

    Regular practitioner sessions are approximately an hour in duration. First sessions will last approximately one and a half hours and include a discussion and assessment, treatment and self- help suggestions. For serious conditions two sessions may be applied per day spacing eight hours apart for 10 days – that will see a major shift. Self-Help sessions can be applied multiple times per day with no time limit. 

    That really depends on the individual and their specific needs, some may decide to attend monthly or weekly or may discover that a single session may fully address their needs. For more serious conditions multiple treatments twice a day for ten days will see a shift in the condition. Some  people may find that one session combined with self help may eliminate symptoms and the cause. Please call to discuss your requirements. 

    Session prices may vary depending on the number and frequency of sessions required. Special pricing packages are available.  Your can rest assured that sessions are very reasonable. Please call to discuss your requirements.

    Sadly insurance does not cover this service at this time.    

    A SEL is a key location in the body on a major energy channel that acts as an energetic fuse. If a SEL closes, energy can stagnate or reverse its direction and create disharmony. To open a SEL you simply hold it lightly with your fingers or work with corresponding SELs to enable it to open. We  continue to hold it until it opens and sometimes that can take a long time. There are 26 Safety Locks on the right side of the body and matching set on the other side or 26 pairs in total.  SELs form the foundation for both practitioner flows and self help work.

    As its name suggests this is work performed by oneself as opposed to or in addition to a visit and session with a practitioner. Self-Help can be performed by holding fingers, thumbs and mudras  and assists in the healing and restorative process.

    Firstly let me say everyone responds differently, some immediately and others such as in my case may respond in a few minutes. The effects of a session generally last about eight hours after which the body’s natural energy patterns should resume. For the best long-lasting effects practice Self-Help to continue to support the body after a practitioner session.

    How about one word from each of us: Lily says “Relaxing.” Steven says “Life-changing. We are always interested in listening and hearing about your experiences with Jin Shin Jyutsu – Let us know. Some of the words I’ve heard from clients are, “Wow,” and “Zen.”
