Jin Shin Jyutsu is a Japanese healing art that releases stress and supports the body's natural immune and healing powers.  In doing so, it helps us to prevent and recover from colds and other winter ailments.  It also helps to release conflicting emotions such as anxiety, grief and anger and their effects on the body:  insomnia, low energy, headaches, aches and pains and many common complaints. 

Unlike some other "energy work" systems, Jin Shin Jyutsu has an extensive set of self-help techniques ...  simple procedures that we can use to  support ourselves and those close to us.  These techniques consist of "mudras" in which one's hands are placed upon different bodily locations in a specific sequence.  In doing so, the energetic flows essential to the body's health are restored to harmony. 

This hands-on workshop will be held over 2 consecutive half-days, March 9 and 10.  On the first day, we explore the feeling of life energy, how to tune into it and get it moving to restore balance.  You will also learn simple but powerful procedures which address stress and the problems it creates.   On the second day, we will cover some of the theory that underlies JSJ techniques.  You will deepen your ability to tune into your life energy and learn more procedures that help you to take charge of your own wellness. 

Please note that Jin Shin Jyutsu is not a medical procedure which can be used as a cure for any medical condition. 

Why Jin Shin Jyutsu works.   Jin Shin Jyutsu regards the body as a physical system embraced within and pervaded by ki (chi, prana) life-energy.  One's ki flows through an energetic circulatory system much like that of our vascular system.  If these flows  are disrupted by negative emotions or physical trauma, our bodies cannot receive the life energy they need to sustain themselves.  Nor can they efficiently purify themselves of unneeded accumulations.  As a result our energy and vitality diminishes;  we become unwell.  Jin Shin Jyutsu supports wellness and healing by restoring the body's energetic flow patterns to their proper movement.  When harmony has been restored to the ki matrix , health and vitality follow naturally.
