The Art of Energy Healing

Alexis Brink

What is Jin Shin Jyutsu®?

Jin Shin Jyutsu®  is a Japanese healing art that balances body, mind and spirit by using our hands.


For the body to be healthy, energy needs to flow freely. Blockage can occur because of our hurried lifestyle, environmental issues or heredity.

Attend One of our Classes


To harmonize the energy in the body we apply our hands to specific locations on the body. This allows the blocked energy to once again flow freely. Jin Shin Jyutsu® can be practiced on oneself and on others.

“Once in a while, one comes across a person who demonstrates the potential to be extraordinary, and that is Alexis Brink. I have known Alexis for more than a decade and have always been impressed with her desire to break new boundaries and think beyond the ordinary paradigm.”

– Deepak Chopra

"I started going to Alexis when I was diagnosed with an aggressive ovarian cancer. Jin Shin Jyutsu gave me the physical and mental strength to deal with my illness, and enabled me to go through 5 months of intense chemotherapy. Alexis is now part of my normal health program, and I always look forward to my visits. She has miracle hands!" 

-Teresita M.

"I have been seeing Alexis Brink for over 15 years and whenever I'm in NYC I make sure to get a treatment. The work of Jin Shin gently balances the body so it is able to get back to it's natural rhythm and flow. I always leave a session more energized, yet calmer, and am better able to go about my day in a peaceful joyful state. Alexis is a first rate healer/practitioner and I highly recommend her to anyone suffering with a particular health issue, anxiety issue, or those who simply want to be at their optimal level of being!"

Born of innate wisdom and passed down from generation to generation by word of mouth, this energy harmonizing art was revived in the early 1920's by Master Jiro Murai of Japan after clearing himself of a life threatening illness. He gathered insight from a range of experiences and resources including the Kojiki (The Record of Ancient Things).
