Jin Shin Jyutsu® Self-Help: Breath and Fingers

Experience Harmony at Your Fingertips....

"Self Change starts with Self Study" – Mary Burmeister


Did you know that we all have the innate power to help and heal ourselves?

Try either of these exercises below (or both) everyday for 7 days and see what differences you notice...It’s that simple!

THE 36 BREATHS

The simplest and most important SELF-HELP tool we have is our BREATH - The EXHALE and the INHALE. When we exhale consciously and deeply, we release tension and stress. When we inhale naturally, we receive an abundance of life energy. This life energy connects our body, mind, and spirit. A good formula is EXHALE; DROP YOUR SHOULDERS AND SMILE.

Simply and consciously exhale while dropping your shoulders as if they are touching your feet. The smile comes naturally as you release and gently welcome the inhalation.

Each day use this formula to EXHALE consciously and INHALE naturally, 36 breaths. You can do this all at once or you can do 9 complete exhales and inhales four times per day.

HOLDING YOUR FINGERS

Another exercise is to gently wrap one hand around your other hands’ thumb and each finger individually and then hold the palm. Hold each finger, thumb, and palm for at least 2 minutes apiece or longer. You can choose which hand you want to hold or do both. (See the sample hand images below.)

The fingers and palms have energy connections to our mind, body and spirit. Alternatively, you can do both exercises together as well... the 36 Breaths while holding your fingers and palms. While you hold each finger and palm, place your awareness on 6 complete breaths and then move to the next finger/position and repeat.


It’s that simple to start reducing stress and healing yourself! Share this information with others who also want Better Health for Themselves.
