Jin Shin Jyutsu is a gentle energy work which harmonises the body.
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 Tibetan medicine lie in the Shamanian Bön-tradition. Later, influences from the Indian, Persian and Chinese medicine as well from the Buddhist philosophy were added. For centuries, it has also been very common in India and the Himalayan region, reaching into Mongolia as well as 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) as well as 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.
The aim is to restore the balance of the bodily juices. The Tibetan massage is an aspect of traditional Tibetan medicine which is suitable for this purpose.
