The name of this gentle, joyful, loving healing art can be translated as "The way of the Creator through the hands of the compassionate Man." As one teacher said, "Jin Shin Jyutsu is a way to harmonize the body's energy circulation so that all the cells get what they need to function perfectly." During Jin Shin Jyutsu sessions, the hands are placed lightly on the body and act as 'jumper cables' for the body's own perfect energy flow. Jin Shin Jyutsu is a method which, like the Bach Flowers, embraces self help. While sessions with practitioners are wonderful, an individual's own hands also have a powerful effect.

There is an astrological correlation to the energy flows for the 12 organ systems:

Lung, Large Intestine, Stomach, Spleen, Heart, Small Intestine, Bladder, Kidney, Diaphragm, Umbilicus, Gall Bladder and Liver. Some easy to do, self help hand positions can be suggested based upon your birth chart. You will need to furnish your birth date, time and location. Click here to request Jin Shin Jyutsu self help.

The history, philosophy and practice of Jin Shin Jyutsu are beautifully described in "The Touch of Healing," by Alice Burmeister. This is an easy to read, illustrated book that can be found in many major bookstores, on the internet, or by contacting the organization at The website also has the schedule of trainings and local practitioners can be found by calling the Scottsdale, Arizona headquarters.
