Jin Shin Jyutsu with
Jin Shin Jyutsu is a valuable complement to conventional healing methods. It boosts our own profound healing capacities and thus promotes optimal health, well-being and vitality.
Perhaps the most widely known anecdotal evidence of its healing abilities was demonstrated by a Jiro Murai, a Japanese philosopher in the early 1900s. Having been diagnosed with a terminal illness, Murai rediscovered this ancient art and vowed to research the connection between his amazing recovery and his utilization of hand-holds or mudras.
Jin Shin Jyutsu has been shown to effectively reduce healing time after surgery or injury, speed the healing of broken bones, even through casts, and to shorten the recovery period of several illnesses.
According to an article from the San Francisco Medical Society Library by Pennie Sempell, JD, CMT, "In our offices, Jin Shin Jyutsu treatments and self-care exercises are provided to medical and surgical patients suffering from a wide range of complaints, such as fatigue, pain (chronic and acute), anxiety, nausea, symptoms exacerbated by stress, respiratory disorders, insomnia, and gynecological and sexual dysfunction, cardiac complaints, complications of surgery and negative side effects of medications (e.g., anesthesia, chemotherapy, radiation and antidepressant medications).".
Continuing from the same article... "Surgery patients are encouraged to receive a minimum of three sessions closely spaced before surgery, with additional sessions post-operation in-hospital and during recovery, as needed. Surgeons report that patients who received Jin Shin Jyutsu seem to have a more relaxed outlook going into surgery, experienced less nausea and gastrointestinal complaints and recovered faster than expected.".
Ms. Sempell continues... "In the intensive care setting, patients are in a particularly fragile, anxious and weakened state. Frequent, short (15-20 minutes) sessions are recommended and can be exceptionally helpful. In a trial program through CPMC's Institute for Health and Healing (in which Ms. Sempell participated for several years) patients awaiting a heart transplant were provided Jin Shin Jyutsu acupressure services on a twice weekly basis. These patients are at risk for numerous medical complications, physical discomfort, as well as psychological setbacks. While the sample size was small, in feedback surveys patients reported often experiencing extensive benefits from the sessions, including: "helped dramatically reduce pain", "reduced anxiety and depression", "promoted deep sense of relaxation", "aided bowel functioning", "help reduce physical discomfort in the body", "helped improve mood", and "aided restful sleep at night", as examples.".
