JIN SHIN JYUTSU is the Art of releasing tensions which are the causes for various symptoms in the body. Our bodies contain several energy pathways that feed life into all of our cells. When one or more of these paths become blocked, this damming effect may lead to discomfort or even pain. This blockage or stagnation will not only disrupt the local area but will continue and eventually disharmonize the complete path or paths of the energy flow.
Feeling anxious? Nervous? Kind of grouchy? This old Japanese technique can help balance out your emotions and chill you the hell right out, son. All it takes is to keep your thumb pressed in your other hand for a full minute, as the photo above would suggest. Then repeat with the other hand.
Every finger has a role. Pressure on the thumb eases nausea. Pressure on the finger relaxes your fears. Pressure on the middle finger chills your temper. Pressure on your ring finger fights off sadness. And finally, pressure on the pinky finger eases your overall stress.
According to ancient written records, which remain in the Archives of the Imperial Palace in Japan, Jin Shin Jyutsu was widely known before the birth of Gautama (Buddha, India), before the birth of Moses (recorded in the Bible), and before the Kojiki (Record of Ancient Things – Japan, A.D. 712). Jin Shin Jyutsu is an innate part of man's wisdom – simplifying the complexities of existence – and is truly an Art of Living.
