A Jin Shin Jyutsu® practitioner uses both hands (referred to as "jumper cables") to hold a combination of Safety Energy Locations. SELs are the area in the body that can become congested and can lock up. When this happens, energy cannot flow freely. This pattern will cause disharmony or disease.
As the SELs release and balance is restored, the client experiences phyiscal, mental and spiritual harmony. By using our hands and placing them on certain areas, we can open the SELs and release the congestion. The energy flow can now move uninterrupted, down the front of the body and up the back. When all the energy is flowing in harmony, there is a sense of well-being and happiness. It is in this state, that healing can occur.
The work encourages a life of simplicity, calmness, patience and self-containment. It is the philosophy and spirit of the work, not the technique, that attracts people to Jin Shin Jyutsu®.
