When I was first introduced to this book I thought it was a form of karate haha. It is actually a wonderful healing modality! Enjoy!

I first learned about Jin Shin Jyutsu as a patient at the Markey cancer center in Lexington Kentucky. Practitioners there bring great comfort to survivors before, during, and after treatment. In my work as a personal trainer I encounter people with many chronic physical conditions who could benefit from this ancient healing art. While this book provides a fascinating introduction, I would caution against trying to apply the principles to someone else without trained supervision. On the other han ...more

I found this book very good at describing the energy flows and the positioning of the hands to enhance the flow. There is much to learn. I need to read it again.

This is one of the few books available on the art of Jin Shin Jyutsu, which I swear by for maintaining a healthy mind, body and spirit. If I were to rate only the content/subject of the book, I would rate it a 5. Jin Shin Jyutsu is a totally astounding method of healing. However, the organization of the book and explanations really do leave quite a bit to be desired, and if I were rating the book on that basis I would rate it a 3; so, I averaged the two to come out with my rating of 4. For those ...more

The more I get to know myself, the more convinced I am that I have an inner hippie. (My children would be embarrassed, but they already know, they are just trying to keep it quiet from the world.) That said, this has been a very useful book to me! I have found it valuable in dealing with stress and improved sleeping/ease of falling to sleep as well as useful for tension-related aches. I do not agree with everything here--but from a practical use viewpoint I say Yay!

This is a self help book on Jin Shin Jyutsu.
Very easy to follow and understand. Since I was following and practicing the steps given it took longer to get through it. There is still much to remember so will probably be referring to it often.

Simple to understand & easy to follow instructions.

Good clear explanation of energy, body & level of energy to access & false attitudes which are in reality FEAR. How fear manifests into illness & how, by using energy, to release Fear & illness.
