More about Jin Shin Jyutsu

This technique releases the tension in the body. In the body there are several energy pathways (nerves). When some of these paths are blocked this leads to pain and discomfort. This blockage will disharmonize all the paths of the energy flow. This will lead to a complete imbalance in the body.

Jin Shin Jyutsu is discovered by Master Jiro Murai at the beginning of the 20th century. One of his students, Mary Burmeister, has brought this art from Japan into America in the year 1950 and it is still practiced today.

This great technique will be perfect for your health and you should definitely try it and feel the benefits of it.
