imageWelcome to my website!  I am a Jin Shin Jyutsu Practitioner


Jin Shin Jyutsu (JSJ) is an energy-based healing art rediscovered and developed by Jiro Murai of Japan, based on his first hand experiences as a healer, as well as his research into ancient healing practices, including knowledge from the Kojiki (“Record of Ancient Things”) in the Japanese Imperial Archives.  Jiro Murai taught Jin Shin Jyutsu to Mary Burmeister, who began teaching it in the United States in the 1960’s.

In recent years it has been recognized and applied by some mainstream medical institutions as a complementary therapy.  For example, Jin Shin Jyutsu has been incorporated into programming for heart transplant patients at the California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco.  In a recent research study at the University of Kentucky Markey Cancer Center, cancer patients reported "significant improvement in side effects of cancer treatment following just one Jin Shin Jyutsu session."    


In a treatment, the practitioner places her hands over specific locations on the body called “safety energy locks” in order to clear energetic blockages and improve and balance the flow of life force energy in the body.  The practitioner acts as a "jumper cable," a conduit that delivers life force energy to the recipient's body through specific sequences of safety energy locks called "flows." 

Jin Shin Jyutsu energizes, brings deep relaxation and supports the body’s abilities to heal. 

JSJ treatments can help:

  • Chronic pain; back / neck pain; migraines
  • Balance and mobility
  • Respiratory function
  • Digestion and elimination; blood sugar control
  • Improve sleep
