The ancient healing art of Jin Shin Jyutsu is a physio-philosophy which harmonizes the life energy of the body. Jin Shin Jyutsu was researched and developed by Master Jiro Murai in the early 1900s. After restoring his health from a terminal illness at age 26, Jiro devoted the rest of his life to studying and understanding the process that enabled him to regain his health.

This was Jiro Murai’s first glimpse of the keys that he would refine into the Art of Jin Shin Jyutsu. Master Murai devoted the rest of his life to the research and development of Jin Shin Jyutsu, gathering insight from a range of experiences and resources, including the Kojiki (Record of Ancient Things).

The resulting knowledge of Jin Shin Jyutsu was then given to Mary Burmeister. She began teaching the art to others in the early 1960s, and today there are thousands of students throughout the United States and around the world. Jin Shin Jyutsu brings balance to the body’s energy, which promotes optimal health and well-being, and facilitates our own profound healing capacity.

Jin Shin Jyutsu employs 26 “Safety Energy Locks” (p. 230-231) along energy pathways that feed life into our bodies. When one or more of the paths become blocked, the resulting stagnation can disrupt the local area and eventually dis-harmonize the complete path of energy flow. Holding these energy locks in combination can bring balance to mind, body, and spirit.
