The self-help classes leads us to Jin Shin Jyutsu essence: it was through self-help that Jiro Murai healed himself. The experience was so intensely that led him to dedicate the rest of his life, about 50 years, to the research that allow us to recover the wisdom of Jin Shin Jyutsu, a transmitted innate art from generations to generations but, little by little, had fallen into oblivion. Mary Burmeister condensed the teachings of the art in three books of “Jin Shin Jyutsu Self-Help”, which form the basis of this learning stage.

The aim is to enable the student to apply Jin Shin Jyutsu to itself. They are taught sequences of simple touches, which have immediate effect: harmonize the natural flow of energy in the body, providing relaxation, more vitality and increasing perception of the self.

Jin Shin Jyutsu engages one in self-study and self-help. Through the process of “Now Know Myself,” we recognize the wisdom of the body, and we learn to interpret the messages provided and utilize them to restore balance. For those of us addressing existing stress or health disharmonies, or for those simply wishing to participate actively in maintaining health, harmony and well-being, the Art of Jin Shin Jyutsu is a simple and powerful tool available to all. Jin Shin Jyutsu has a long history and a growing following around the world.
