Hands-On, Harmonizing Art - relaxing, needle-free treatment

This ancient Japanese healing art works on a deeply profound level to revitalize and harmonize body, mind and spirit. Documented more than 1,200 years ago in the Imperial Palace archives of Japan, this ancient art reminds us that the simplest tools to help us regain harmony and balance are our hands and breath.

Jin Shin Jyutsu harmonizes all bodily systems – endocrine, immune, nervous, digestive and so forth by simply addressing the underlying source, which is the flow of energy that supplies life force to all these systems.

Vital Energy

Vital energy circulates freely through our body along specific pathways to regulate and nourish all body organs, systems and tissues. When these pathways become congested due to stressful emotions, harmful living habits, digestive stress, injury or trauma, we can experience a lack of energy, discomfort, pain and illness.

Safety Energy Locks

Jin Shin Jyutsu employs 26 ‘Safety Energy Locks” (SELs) along primary energy pathways that carry the vital life force through our bodies.

These areas “lock” to let us know on what level and how the energy is blocked as well as how we may harmonize the flows.

Release Stress & Tension

During a session, areas along these pathways are held in a particular sequence. The sequence of flow patterns release tension, stress and trauma by gently dispersing energy blockages and harmonizing the energy flow through the meridians. This allows us to experience deep relaxation, inner peace and facilitates our ability to receive optimal health and well-being.

Self-Help Classes

In Jin Shin Jyutsu, there are no problems and no labels, only projects. There are many self-help tools available so that we can apply the art of Jin Shin Jyutsu to ourselves on a regular basis. During your session, Suzanne may recommend self-help patterns you can do at home to help your specific area of need.

Suzanne also offers Jin Shin Jyutsu self-help classes, for those who would like to learn more about the Art, including the 26 Safety Energy Locks, their location and application.

Self-Help classes are usually 2 to 3 days in length. During this time you will learn:

Hands-on application and philosophy of this ancient healing art.Self-help patterns to release daily tension and stress.Awareness of 26 points (called safety energy locks) and how to use them to release specific ailments, stress and tensions.

Mary Burmeister

Mary Burmeister brought the healing art of Jin Shin Jyutsu (JSJ)  to America from Japan. As a young woman, in the late 1940s, she met Master Jiro Murai, who asked if she would take something to America for him. She replied, “Yes!” little realizing at the time the implications of his request.

Mary continued to study and grow in the Art of  Jin Shin Jyutsu which she practiced and taught  until she passed on, at age 89, in 2008. Mary’s  students carry on her teaching work, offering classes in the Art, which is now taught and practiced all over the world. Mary was one of the most dynamic teachers I have ever experienced and I feel so fortunate to have studied with and experience her wisdom and the inherent spiritual teachings and transmission that she shared along with the everday wisdom and practical nature of JSJ
