Jin Shin Jyutsu® Self-Help: Harmonizing Headaches

Better Health For Yourself!....

"Self Change starts with Self Study" – Mary Burmeister

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

"Rather than trying to correct, simply observe the harmonizing"

Quote from Page 24 of "WHAT MARY SAY'S" by Mary Burmeister

Get to "KNOW (Help) MYSELF" by using the following simple steps to Help Harmonize Headaches. Try these methods each time you have a headache and see what differences you notice...It’s that simple!

Head discomforts of all kinds can be harmonized utilizing finger holds and certain flow patterns from the Jin Shin Jyutsu Self Help Books. With any kind of discomfort we are looking to move energy to a greater place of harmony. For headaches we are looking to move stuck energy down, away from the head. So the simplest method is to use holds or flows that encourage energy to descend toward the toes. As always in JSJ, there are several different ways of facilitating this. Headaches can be the result of our inability to digest on a physical, mental, emotional or spiritual level. Either way, remember to focus on harmonizing.

Try these Methods

Hold your thumbs including the pad of the thumb - aka Safety Energy Lock 18 (Fig 1), left then right (or vice versa), until you feel a pulse (or hold for 2 minutes if pulse is not detected). To maximize result, exhale, drop your shoulders, smile and naturally inhale as you hold each thumb. Many people do multiples of 9 exhalations and inhalations, up to 36 times per thumb. You can adapt this breathing practice to each method below. This will also help you destress and relax.

  • Just quietly hold the left and right groins and in a few minutes, more or less, one can feel the tension/stress beginning to melt away in any head discomforts.Place thumbs or finger or fingers on LEFT and RIGHT base of skull, sitting down, standing or lying down.
  • (1) Place left finger(s) on base of RIGHT cheek bone
  • (2) Place right finger(s) at center of RIGHT collar bone. Hold for 2-3 mins to feel pulse
  • (3) Left finger stays, right finger(s) go to base of LEFT ribcage

"Whenever I find myself at a higher altitude, I seem to be susceptible to headaches. These leave me incapacitated for at least a day. Recently, a friend instructed me on how to hold the base of my thumbs at Safety Energy Lock 18. She told me that this would help to clear up the pressure that I felt in the back of my head. I used this on myself during my next trip to the mountains, and was pleasantly surprised at the result!"

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