What Is Jin Shin Jyutsu and How Can It Help Me?

Christina Burawa

Christina Burawa

Clarksville, TN– Most people have a reluctance, even a fear, of trying new things. A healing technique that has a Japanese name and involves another person touching your body may make many Tennesseans feel that it’s not something they want to encounter.

Jin Shin Jyutsu (pronounced “jin-shin-jit-soo”) may seem new and different, but I can assure you it’s neither something to avoid nor is it something to fear. It is an age-old healing technique that originated in Japan about 1900 when Jiro Murai, a philosopher, recovered from a life-threatening illness after he rediscovered its methods. The words themselves mean “the art of the Creator in the person of compassion.”

This healing art involves having a therapist gently touch specific points on one’s body while you lie fully clothed on a massage table with, if you like, a small pillow under your head and a larger one under your knees. If you’re fortunate, you’ll have therapist Christina Burawa helping you rid yourself of stress and pain. «Read the rest of this article»
