Jin Shin Jyutsu is a gentle energy work which harmonises body, mind and soul.
The fascination lies in its simplicity and the possibility to exercise this art anytime, anywhere on oneself or others.
Jin Shin Jyutsu was rediscovered in the beginning of 1900 by a Japanese named Jiro Murai. This art found its way to the USA through his student Mary Burmeister, and from there it spread all over the world.
Jin Shin Jyutsu literally translated is:
Jyutsu - Art
Shin - Creator
Jin - Man of Knowing and Compassion
"Art of the Creator through man of knowing and compassion”.
The origins of the of the Tibetain medicine lie in the Shamanian Bön-tradition. Later, influences from Indian, Persian and Chinese medicine and from Buddist philosopy were added. For centuries, it has also been very common in India and the Himalayan region, reaching into Mongolia and parts of Russia.
In Tibetan medicine, a person is perceived completely. It is important that body, mind and soul are in harmony. It is based on the theory of the five elements (space, fire, earth, wind and water) and the three bodily juices wind (rLung), gall (Tripa) and mucus (Bedkan). When the elements and bodily juices are in balance, the human being feels healthy and balanced. An imbalance of the elements and bodily juices, on the other hand, can lead to diseases.
