Practical Jin Shin Jyutsu
Alice Burmeister with Tom Monte
Jin Shin Jyutsu is an ancient Japanese practice that balances the body’s energy using fingers and hands. I bought this book 10 years ago and read it right through. At the time I was in the process of becoming a practitioner of Jin Shin Jyutsu. The meaning of each energy lock has immeasurable significance and the book is on my bedside table so I can continually refresh my knowledge of this ancient art.
Given five books to take to a desert island, this would definitely be one of them. There are other books on the subject by Jin Shin Jyutsu trainers I have worked with but I haven’t read them so I can’t comment on them individually.
This comprehensive guide explains:
- The energy pathways in your body and the 26 sites where this energy is concentrated
- Methods that allow you to release vital energy flow in parts of your own body or another person’s.
- The five imbalances that block and reduce energy, and the simple steps you can take to overcome them.
- First aid and on the spot healing for colds, high-cholesterol levels and blood pressure, allergies, back tension, menstrual pain, headaches and other ailments.
