A New Healing Modality: Jin Shin Jyutsu

This has existed for ages but it’s new to me!

I discovered this method only last night, so I don’t have a full grasp yet. But I’m super excited, so wanted to share it with you right away.

The part that got me most hyped is that it seems to be the simplest healing modality yet. You can hold certain fingers on your hand and that will harmonize your body’s energies.

Each finger corresponds with a different element, organ, emotion, body process, and energy system. Just like in Chinese 5 element theory.

Thumb = Spleen/Stomach (Earth)
Index = Kidney/Bladder (Water)
Middle = Liver/Gall Bladder (Wood)
Ring = Lung/Large Intestine (Metal)
Pinky = Heart/Small Intestine (Fire)

Since I have weak spleen, kidney, and liver systems, I can hold each of those fingers individually until I feel an energetic pulse. This can take as long as 3-5 minutes. And I do feel a strong pulse in that finger if I wait long enough.

This method is super easy to do any time, any place. I will let you know later if this worked in healing what ails me.

I bet Jin Shin Jyutsu would be as popular as EFT, Donna Eden’s Energy Medicine, Reiki, etc if the name were simpler!
