    Jin Shin Jyutsu Defined


    - Joseph Campbell


         In Japanese Jin means "man of knowing, compassion", Shin means "Creator", and Jyutsu means "art".  Literally defined, then, Jin Shin Jyutsu is the Art of the Creator expressed through knowing and compassionate (aware and understanding), man.

         Mary Burmeister said, “Jin Shin Jyutsu is truly the art of happiness, the art of longevity and the art of benevolence.  It is the Creator’s art personally for MYSELF, the art of Getting to KNOW (Help) MYSELF.”  Additionally, Mary called Jin Shin Jyutsu a "physio-philosophy".  She believed the understanding of Jin Shin Jyutsu by many people would be facilitated by calling the art PHYSIO-PHILOSOPHY - KNOW MYSELF IT IS.  (PHYSIO, meaning Nature, or Creator’s Art / One Order;  PHILOSOPHY, meaning Effortless Reality, or Being the Non-being).  Mary also called it the "Cosmic Artless Art to KNOW (Help) MYSELF", or “NATURE - THE EFFORTLESS REALITY, KNOW MYSELF IT IS”.  This ancient art involves the very-natural application of the hands for gently balancing the flow of life energy in the body and, since all is already within us - waiting to be brought to consciousness - more generally, it is the awakening to awareness of complete harmony within the self and the  universe.

         Jin Shin Jyutsu is an ancient hands-on healing art that is comprised of wisdom and philosophy, and which restores the harmony and balance of the life-force energy to all of the systems of the body. The practice of Jin Shin Jyutsu aids in relaxation and stress reduction, thereby promoting optimal health, well-being and vitality. Jin Shin Jyutsu is a valuable complement to conventional healing methods, as it boosts our own profound healing capacity - facilitating the healing of the whole Body-Mind-Spirit connection.

         The practitioner serves as a conduit for Jin Shin Jyutsu, which is a means for the body to re-establish the flow of energy that has been blocked, thereby allowing the body to heal itself. This is done in a gentle and non-invasive way, with the practitioner placing fingertips, over the clothing, on specific areas of the body, which are known as Safety Energy Locks, and with her or his hands acting like “jumper cables”. The pathways - or energy flows - that are blocked - or in need of assistance - are determined primarily by listening to wrist pulses, as well as awareness through all of the practitioner’s other senses, and the many levels of information involved in learning Jin Shin Jyutsu. This is why Jin Shin Jyutsu, which seems simple yet complex, is considered an art and, by many, a life-long study.

         Jin Shin Jyutsu has its roots in ancient India, and was widely known before the births of either Buddha or Moses. It was originally taught by oral tradition, but was recorded in Japan in 712 AD, in the Kojiki (The Record of Ancient Things). The practice was then known as, “The Secret of Freedom from Disharmony, Hidden Within Man”.

         In the 1930’s, the study of esoteric information provided the foundation for the re-connection with this profound healing tradition, for a man named  Jiro Murai, who had been diagnosed with a terminal illness. With awareness based on his esoteric studies, he retreated in solitude, fasted and used simple hand techniques, called “Mudras”, to heal his terminal illness. During this time he became consciously aware of his body’s energy pathways, and recovered completely.

         Over time, Jiro Murai provided treatments to others, but only if they would listen to his teachings. Later, he asked Mary Burmeister, the only woman who had been invited to study with him, if she would like to take a gift to America upon her return. Back in America, Mary provided Jin Shin Jyutsu to family and friends first, and then to others for many years, staying in correspondence with Jiro and often asking him for guidance with clients who had specific “projects”. Mary gave treatments for 17 years before she started teaching Jin Shin Jyutsu. In January, 2008, at age 87, Mary peacefully passed away.  Kato Sensei, of Japan, is now the only student of Jiro Murai’s who is still living.



    No more running; all that I need I am.”

    Look Inside For Everything.”

    “When the 23’s are open, nothing bothers you.”
    (The 23’s are the Safety Energy Locks of  "patience in all things")

    “The study of Jin Shin Jyutsu is to remember who we truly are;
    spiritual beings having a physical experience.”

    “Disease happens only when the energy vibration falls below a certain level;
     holding the fingers raises the vibration of the mind.”



         Since this profound art balances and harmonizes all of the systems of the entire body, names of “projects” aided by Jin Shin Jyutsu are too numerous to list.  Appreciating the importance of body work in general, and Jin Shin Jyutsu specifically, however, it will be helpful to realize that the physical body’s systems are maintained by specific flows of energy that can become blocked.  The cause of blockages can be as complex as our thoughts about situations and events in our lives, and the feelings and emotions that we hold about them, called “attitudes”, or even as basic as the over-use of one arm.  As with the flow of a blocked river, pressure builds up behind a “dam” in the body’s energy flow, which may cause pain, and the energy can even divert, and/or reverse its direction, in seeking an outlet.  Because of the natural connectedness of all things, left un-aided, the results of the energy dam can also create blockages in other energy-flow patterns.  An originally-simple muscle ache in the neck/shoulder area can have a “ripple-in-the-pond” effect, and may eventually be diagnosed as Migraine Headaches, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or Tennis Elbow.  Unaided blockages held in other areas/flows of the body can lead to many other types of projects, often with “larger labels”, including the disharmonies of asthma, insomnia, osteoporosis, high blood pressure, circulatory problems, and more.

         Additionally, one huge benefit of Jin Shin Jyutsu is that it can also be utilized for numerous specific “emergency” situations, including attacks of anxiety and/or asthma, removing stingers or splinters, stopping the bleeding of a recent cut, accelerating the healing of burns, and loss of consciousness and/or fainting.

         As with many healing modalities that have ancient roots, their origin lies in mankind’s innate awareness.  Of these modalities, it has sometimes been the case that our current ability to utilize their principles, as well as teach them, is thanks to the efforts of one or more individuals whose dedication brought the information back from near extinction.  Here in America, Jin Shin Jyutsu is in our lives thanks to Jiro Murai and Mary Burmeister, and we are grateful for them being the angels they were in bringing to us the art’s messages, and the secrets of “freedom from disharmony, hidden within man”.  By receiving Jin Shin Jyutsu sessions – especially in conjunction with a personal practice of Self Help – each of us can keep our body’s energy pathways flowing harmoniously, thereby promoting good health and graceful youthfulness - at any age.  This wonderful healing modality is truly a tool for the good life!

         As a side note, being a practitioner of Jin Shin Jyutsu, who has been a Reiki Master since 1994, my clients receive a double blessing, and their benefits are greatly enhanced. Because of the special way in which these two wonderful healing modalities naturally blend and flow together, their sessions provide them with both the harmony and wonderful balancing effects of the art of Jin Shin Juytsu, as well as the unique and subtle frequency of the Universal Life-Force energy of Reiki, that is inherent to the nature of my previously-received levels of attunement, and which is automatically channeled through me.



         “Thank you for coming to me – both here at home as well as at the post-surgery rehab center – after my back surgery.  Continuing to receive healing-energy work has been so calming and relaxing – it has really helped!!"
                                                                                                – Roz R., Santa Rosa, Calif.

         “That sciatica pain has been really intense for a week or so but now, since the JSJ treatment you gave me, it doesn’t hurt at all!"
                                                                                             – Mary G., Sebastopol, Calif.

         “I’m leaving this message because I just wanted to let you know - I feel a lot better today. My legs are so much better after my Jin Shin Jyutsu session yesterday. What you did was very, very helpful. I’m definitely going to talk to my doctor about that medication we discussed, but today I feel better . . . my legs aren’t as stiff, so you really did a great job, and I wanted to tell you.”
                                                                                                     – Jenny F., Jenner, Calif.

         “I am definitely feeling better . . . I can tell the Jin Shin Jyutsu is working! Now, I only start to hurt when I’ve been standing for too long at my job. And yes, my feet are still much warmer than they were and, now, even my body is warmer. For the first time I can go into the store for my work without having to layer my clothing!”
                                                                                              - Elena L., Santa Rosa, Calif.

         “I’ll call soon to set up my next appointment – Jin Shin Jyutsu really helps me a lot!”
                                                                                                     – Jenny F., Jenner, Calif.

         “I haven’t needed to see the chiropractor for several months now, and I’m no longer seeing the therapist. Receiving Jin Shin Jyutsu each week seems to be what’s really helping me cope with everything right now.”
                                                                                                 – Janice T., Sonoma, Calif.

         “After the experiences I was having recently, the doctor at Kaiser and I were both very concerned about my heart, and I agreed to come back in the morning for tests.  However, I was feeling so much better after the Jin Shin Jyutsu session you gave me that afternoon, and then I was really elated when the results were in from all of the tests I'd taken the next day, they were just fine - and the doctor didn't even schedule me for any follow-up appointments!”
                                                                                                - A. S., Rohnert Park, Calif.

         “I experienced a big shift during our Jin Shin session, and I was able to sleep for about 3 hours.  I feel so much better - and I can breathe again!”
                                                                                             - Sandy C., Santa Rosa, Calif.

        “That was wonderful! And it really helped me a lot!   I’ve been needing to see my chiropractor so much lately,  and now I’m thinking of simply coming to see you on a regular basis for Jin Shin Jyutsu.”
                                                                                              - J. Lyons., Sebastopol, Calif.

                              Jin Shin Jyutsu    

    Touch-for-Transition Classes

         In association with Final Passages, this all new, one-day class about Jin Shin Jyutsu is especially empowering for those who - whether due to personal or professional considerations - either have been, are currently and / or expect to be a caregiver for someone else.  Most certainly Jin Shin Jyutsu can be of assistance to all of us, at any time of life.  However, the attainment of being in a place of harmony-with-life can be achieved by those with health challenges - even with frightening labels - as well as by those who care for them, simply by using some very-easy hand holds.
         As a long-time friend and student of Jerrigrace Lyons, Founder and Director of Final Passages, a student of the art of Jin Shin Jyutsu for almost ten years, a recipient of the wonderful care and support afforded through Final Passages by both Jerrigrace and her husband, Mark Hill, and also having formerly been the primary caregiver for elderly parents, I feel very honored to be able to offer this information, especially at this time.
         In a quote from the Final Passages web site (, and study materials it is said, “The Nature of Life includes the eventual Miracle of Death, a rite of passage that deserves dignity and loving care”.  During the more-than 10 years Jerrigrace has been of service as a midwife for the process of "transition", and having assisted well-over 250 people to “pass over”, she has seen “barriers of fear and anger broken down, giving more room for love and celebration through this important passage.”  In this context, especially, it is important to understand that, so very often, our physical discomfort is actually heightened by our emotions, and included in the miracle of the “loving care”, that is commonly provided by Jin Shin Jyutsu, is the release of pain and tension through the harmonizing effects on all of our states - physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.  For both the cared for and the care giver, some of the benefits from being in harmony during this otherwise-stressful process include a sense of peace from a range-of-emotions that can include worry, depression, fear, anger, grief, anxiety, sadness, suspicion, guilt and effort.
         The primary focus of this class is the review, study and group practice of the information presented by Judith B. Andry, in her wonderful new book, "A Touching Good-Bye: The Gentle Use of Jin Shin Jyutsu® Acupressure At Times of Critical Illness and Death".  Some of the topics covered include intuitively being able to hear what is needed, improving the quality of life, the struggle with beliefs about death, as well as loss, change and transformation. Each student’s tuition includes additional information about the basics of Jin Shin Jyutsu and how and why it works so well, together with supplemental handouts - INCLUDING the cross-over information in order to use this very-helpful information on beloved pets and / or animal companions - and time for both Self-Help practice, as well as any Q & A's.
         This class is an excellent place to begin for anyone interested in learning more about Self Help with Jin Shin Jyutsu (please see the information below for dates of upcoming Self-Help classes), or pursuing this ancient art - at an even-deeper level - by availing themselves of the many wonderful trainings offered through Jin Shin Jyutsu, Incorporated (

         Taking a Jin Shin Jyutsu Self-Help Training provides a very helpful basis for the understanding of Jin Shin Jyutsu at a level that allows for self treatment, and/or beneficial treatment of pets. Self-treatment is a wonderful way for the client to supplement the maintenance of his/her own body, and to extend the many benefits of receiving Jin Shin Jyutsu sessions. Students of Self-Help Classes usually find it very beneficial to develop the habit of self-treatment with Jin Shin Jyutsu first thing in the morning and/or before falling asleep at night.

         In Book III of Mary Burmeister's Self-Help books, “Introducing Jin Shin Jyutsu Is” (Books I - III), she addresses Jin Shin Jyutsu as:

                            PHYSIO-PHILOSOPHY - Awareness of MYSELF
                            PHYSIO-PSYCHOLOGY - Understanding of MYSELF
                            PHYSIO-PHYSIOLOGY - Technique for MYSELF

         As human beings we innately use aspects of Jin Shin Jyutsu, even without being consciously aware of it, i.e., crossing our arms or putting our hands on our hips.  However, through the study of Self-Help with Jin Shin Jyutsu it is possible to gain a greater awareness of the importance of specific places on our bodies, such that we can consciously utilize our hands to dissolve the blocks to the natural flows of our energy, thereby releasing pain and discomfort.


    Training in Jin Shin Jyutsu Self-Help is taught as a series of consecutive classes.

    The WEEKEND Series is held over (4) Sunday afternoons, 12:30 - 4:30 p.m. (with a snack break),

    The EVENING Series is held over (3) Tuesday and Thursday evenings,        6:30 - (+/-) 9:15 p.m.
