Jin Shin Acutouch integrates and soothes the mind, body, emotions and spirit. The purpose of this gentle, healing touch is to remove stagnation and blockages and to activate the body’s own healing response, restoring it to a balanced state, similar to the way acupuncture works.
Jin Shin Acutouch uses 26 major points or vortices on each side of the body and 9 chakras or vortexes at the center of the body to affect its natural state, bringing it into balance.
This sacred healing art was rediscovered in the Shinto Temples of Japan by Master Jiro Murai in 1912. He named the Art, Jin Shin Jyutsu. His in-depth study of the system led to a recognition that a rich blend of the subtle energies of East India, Tibet, China, and Japan are blended within the system. He donated his findings to the Imperial Library in Japan. His findings are the foundational core of Jin Shin Acutouch. Murai’s student, Mary Burmeister, brought the system to America and left this gift of healing touch as her legacy. Barbara Clark then developed her style of Jin Shin Acutouch at IPSB, the International Professional School of Bodywork.
Caroline Ryser gives Jin Shin Acutouch seminars for Self-Help. Learning the different points on the body and holding them while sitting on the train, or in the car or while watching tv, can be an easy and accessible method to moving stagnant energy.
