Jin Shin Jyutsu is an ancient Japanese art, philosophy and a powerful alternative health practice.
It harmonizes the life energy in the body, which promotes physical, spiritual, mental and emotional health.
Some of the benefits of Jin Shin Jyutsu are the fact that it:
> Promotes pain relief
> Induces relaxation
> Reduces the effects of stress
> Enhances sleep
> Decreases anxiety
> Increases circulation
> Improves concentration
> Reduces fatigue
> Enhances the immune system
> Improves the condition of skin
> Promotes regeneration
> Improves circulation and breathing
According to this tradition, each part of the hand is connected to different emotions or organs:
Thumb: Emotional pain, worry, sadness, grief, depression, anxiety, stress, tension, stomach issues, skin conditions, headaches
Index Finger: Fear, terror, mental confusion, frustration, back ache, gum issues, digestive problems, kidney, bladder
Middle Finger: Anger, rage, resentment, irritability, indecisiveness, relationships, headaches, fatigue, cramps, circulation
Ring Finger: Anxiety, preoccupation, worry, fear of rejection, negativity, skin conditions, digestion, respiratory problems, lungs, intestine
Little Finger: Low self-esteem, family, insecurity, nervousness, judgmental, blood pressure, sore throat, bloating, heart, intestine
Palm: Fatigue, depression, despondency, diaphragm
Here’s a simple hand exercise that takes just five minutes:
While concentrating on whatever emotion or ailment in need of attention, hold the finger with the opposite hand wrapping all the fingers and thumb around the particular finger being worked on. Inhale and exhale deeply.
Hold each finger for approximately one to two minutes, and within a short time, a pulsating sensation will be felt. This is perfectly natural.
When working on the palm of the hand for mental calmness, press down with the thumb of the opposite hand, angling towards the middle finger and again hold for one to two minutes. When pressed, the palm of the hand can offer a full body nourishment
Inhale, breathing in calm and peaceful thoughts and feelings and then exhale letting go of any emotional attachment or physical discomfort that you wish to clear.
While letting go of the emotional or physical tension, imagine the energy draining out of the fingers and into the earth.
As energy channels run through the fingers and correlate with specific emotions or organs, the energy will begin to disperse as the exercise is practiced.
For a full body balance and harmonization repeat the exercise on every finger and hold the pressure for a little longer.
