It’s hard to believe that it’s been 25 years since I was first introduced to Jin Shin Jyutsu!
During that time I have applied JSJ self help to a number of personal health projects, and, I am pleased to report, achieved positive results in almost all cases. I have personally experienced the benefit of JSJ in overcoming plantar fasciitis, a very painful foot condition that is by no means uncommon. I have seen my overall health improve over the years, and have noticed ups and downs that corresponded to whether I was doing my self help consistently on a daily basis. I have particularly noticed an improvement in the health of my immune system: I don’t get sick, and neither does my husband, who receives treatments from me several times a week. We have been acclimated by the conventional wisdom into thinking that it is normal to catch a bug of some sort every month or so.
The rise of the social media fad has brought to my attention the alarming regularity with which supposedly healthy individuals get sick. Lots of people like to complain when they don’t feel well, and will post about their ills on Facebook, etc. This is what made me realize that, compared to most generally healthy folks, Jack and I don’t get sick. I do recall that, a couple of years ago, there was a nasty bug making the rounds. I noticed my throat was a little scratchy and I felt tired so I sat down on the sofa and applied JSJ self help for an hour or so, and whatever it was, I didn’t get it. My clients who do regular self help also appear to experience more lasting benefit from their treatments.
I’ve also noticed that there are a lot of common ailments and discomforts that are assumed to be just a part of getting older. In the case of many such projects; restless legs, chronic heartburn, allergies, and back pain, to name a few; it is not true that you just have to learn to live with them. Jin Shin Jyutsu, and a little diet and lifestyle counselling can make an enormous difference in how you feel on a daily basis.
Think about it. Why not look and feel as good as you possibly can?
Happy New Year!!
