Often referred to as Acupuncture without needles, Jin Shin Jyutsu ® Physio-Philosophy (JSJ) is an ancient Japanese artform, utilising gentle body work that is practiced by placing fingertips on specific locations on the body to stimulate the energy or lifeforce and restore the body to a harmonious balance. This facilitates the reduction of tension and stress which accumulates in the body through daily living.

The Kojiki (Book of Records - 712 AD) are housed in the archives of the Imperial palace in Japan, containing the earliest written records of JSJ, this art was revived by Master Jiro Murai at the beginning of the 20th Century. Mary Burmeister, a long standing and devoted student of Master Murai brought to the USA in the 1950's. After many years of study and application Mary Burmeister has shared her knowledge of this ancient art.There are now over 13,000 practitioners around the world. There are aspects of Oriental medicine involved in Jin Shin Jyutsu from listening to the pulse and holding of fingers which directly relate to the corresponding attitudes in the body.
What can I expect from a session?
