"Our bodies communicate to us clearly and specifically, if we are willing to listen." ~shakti Gawain
With the every day hustle and bustle, listening to our bodies can easily be drowned out with all the other noise we have been conditioned to focus on. Although massage can be considered a luxury, it is actually a way to a healthier and happier life.
In a typical Jin Shin Jyutsu session, which lasts about one hour, the receiver remains clothed and lies face-up on a cushioned surface. After "listening" to the energy pulses in the wrist, a practitioner employs a harmonizing sequence, or "flow", appropriate for unblocking particular pathways and restoring the energy to the energy rhythm of the universe.
A "flow" is a series of hand placement combinations (using the "safety energy locks") that stimulates circulation of energy along a given pathway. There are many such pathways in the body, each with a distinct function or essence.
To a certain extent, the experience of Jin Shin Jyutsu is unique to each person for each session.
However, the most common effect is that of deep relaxation. Who among us doesn't welcome any opportunity to let go of stress, which so often interferes with optimum health?
