Jin Shin Jyutsu Physio-Philosophy is literally translated as “The Art of the Creator Through Compassionate Man.” Represented by the phrase “Now Know Myself,” this art maintains that through recognizing the wisdom of the body, we can interpret its messages and apply that knowledge to unlock our stagnant energy and regain proper balance in our being.
The purpose of Jin Shin Jyutsu is to release tensions that have indirectly or directly led to various symptoms in our soul, mind and body. This Japanese practice harmonizes and balances the body’s life energy by using principles similar to acupuncture, but without the needles. Through this curative art, our body’s energy realigns, facilitating healing and promoting good health while awakening us to our power and ability to harmonize our own energy.

Jin Shin Jyutsu focuses on twenty-six “safety energy locks” along energy pathways in the body. As a path becomes blocked, the stagnated energy disturbs the immediate area, potentially creating imbalance along the complete energy pathway. Placing the fingertips (over clothing) in combination on these energy locks helps restore energy flow and harmonize the body with the mind and spirit. Jin Shin views any physical or mental imbalances or ailments as reflections of the disrupted underlying flow of energy.
There is a specific function associated with each of the twenty-six points on the body, and placing the fingertips on the area will directly alleviate the blocked location and its resonant ailment or discomfort. As each person has a unique body and energy flow, each Jin Shin Jyutsu session differs from person to person, visit to visit, depending on individual needs.
Some symptoms Jin Shin Jyutsu improves are depression, anxiety, asthma, insomnia, menopause, cancer, sexual dysfunction and headaches. Jin Shin Jyutsu has an extensive self-help component, and in order to maximize the effects of treatments, trained practitioners teach clients simple self-help exercises.
My Enlightened Experience
After a short interview about my current physical and mental health, my Jin Shin practitioner began by placing her fingertips on my wrists, explaining that she was listening to my energy pulses. She informed me that she had found a harmonizing sequence appropriate for my body, based on unblocking particular energy pathways. She referred to her hands as “jumper cables,” using her touch at each specific designated point on my body among the twenty-six “safety energy locks” to stimulate energy circulation and restore balance to that area.
When she determined that a particular area had been rebalanced, she moved on to the next point. With each point she stabilized, I felt more relaxed and centered. Once, during the session, I felt pressure in my head, and her fingertips were suddenly there on my forehead, alleviating the pressure immediately. At another point, I felt my ankles lock up, and she quickly moved to my feet, where a series of finger placements caused my feet to instantly relax.
At the end of my session, she taught me a self-help exercise. She had me lie on my back and focus on the series of points referred to as the “Main Central Vertical Flow” by placing my fingertips on specific points from top to bottom: top of head, center of eyebrows, tip of nose, center of sternum, base of sternum, pubic bone and tailbone. I started with the top of my head with one set of fingers, and placed the other set on the center of my eyebrows. I waited until I felt the “energy pulse” of each location (which I would describe as a consistent faint beat of energy against my fingertips), then matched that pulse to the other so that they were in harmony, before moving on to the next pulse.
My one hand stayed on my head while I placed my fingertips on other points on my body, harmonizing each site with the energy pulse of my head. It took me longer to concentrate and balance out the pulse on certain areas of my body, but when I was done with the session, I felt very relaxed and excited to apply the new exercise to my morning routine.
Jin Shin appears to be a non-intrusive but wonderfully effective way of realigning the body’s imbalances. I emerged from my session with a great sense of body awareness and internal peace. I’m looking forward to learning more about this ancient healing art that so effectively harmonizes the human body and soul.
