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

“Jin Shin Jyutsu reveals the knowing of our main universal revitalizing energy, which follows a circulatory pattern. This energy descends the front (anterior) and ascends the back (posterior) of the body. It is our source of life. This energy revitalizes all of our “individualized” body function energy circulation patterns. The rhythm of this energy cannot be destroyed, but abuses to the body knowingly or unknowingly can affect the supply of energy for the proper functioning of our “individualized” body function energy circulation patterns.”

Quote from Page 5 of Introducing JIN SHIN JYUTSU® IS, Self-Help Book 1 by Mary Burmeister

Get to “KNOW (Help) MYSELF” by using the simple 6 steps below each day to harmonize your Main Universal Revitalizing Energy. Try this exercise everyday for at least 7 days and see what differences you notice...It’s that simple!


Main Central Vertical Flow

The Main Central Vertical Flow is the source of our life energy. This pathway runs down the center of the front of the body and back up the spine. Here is a Jin Shin Jyutsu® self-help process to harmonize this pathway.

Harmonizing the Main Central regularly helps you feel centered and ensures that you will have plenty of energy. Some people find it calming and use it to fall asleep, while others like to use it to invigorate themselves upon awakening. For optimum results, use this daily.
