JIN SHIN JYUTSU

Jin Shin Jyutsu is an ancient practice focused on balancing the body’s energy through thoughtful placement of ones hands on the body to assist with pain, anxiety, illness, and much more. You can use the following holds in most settings including lectures, rounds, and to help falling asleep. The more you practice the holds, the more you notice their effects. The book, The Touch of Healing by Alice Burmeister with Tom Monte and the website http://jsjinc.net/ are wonderful resources for further information.

HOLDS

Before starting a hold, your feet should be planted on the floor or Earth. If you are standing, have your knees slightly bent.
