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?

"The quality of your harmony is the measurement of your happiness"

Quote from Page 16 of “What Mary Says” by Mary Burmeister

Get to "KNOW (Help) MYSELF" by using the following simple practices each day to help sleep projects. Try these exercises every day for at least 7 days and see what differences you notice...It’s that simple!


In the last newsletter we discussed simple practices to harmonize headaches. In this newsletter we will look at ways to harmonize sleep projects. You may notice that 2 of the holds are used to harmonize headaches also. This is testimony to the diversity of uses that each Jin Shin Jyutsu Self help hold, or flow can be put to. Enjoy!

Try these Methods

A simple way to harmonize a condition of insomnia is to hold the pad of your thumbs (fig 1), left then right (or vice versa) until you feel a pulse in each (or hold for 2 minutes if pulse is not detected). To maximize the result, exhale, drop your shoulders, smile and naturally inhale as you hold each digit. Many people do multiples of 9 exhalations and inhalations, up to 36 times per thumb. You can do this breathing practice with each finger hold or flow below.


"I occasionally have insomnia due to stress and when I do I start with holding the base of my skull for a few minutes at bedtime, this seems to settle my thoughts running though my head. Then I hold my thumbs to relax me and help me drift off to sleep, sometimes I holds them up to 5 minutes if needed. I love using this simple natural method instead of taking medications to help me sleep."
