High Touch Jin Shin is based on an ancient Oriental Healing Art, brought to the United States from Japan by Mary Burmeister and called Jin Shin Jyutsu.  Its roots are grounded in one of the oldest Healing Arts and was first recorded in 712 AD, and what is known in Japan as the “Record of Ancient Things.  Acupuncture, Shiatsu and many other energy Healing Arts are derived from similar roots. Originally practiced in the home, it was passed down from generation to generation of Japanese families who use these simple everyday treatments for themselves and others. I owe my respect and gratitude to Besty Ruth Dayton, as she was my teacher for many years.  Betsy studied with Mary Burmister as one of her first students and Betsy wrote her thesis on Jin Shin and created Vol. 1 & 2 which make the depths of Jin Shin Jyutsu more easy to work with and understand. 

In studying the body's energy system, High Touch Jin Shin is a gentle placing of the fingertips on certain points of the body to help release blockages in the body's energy flow. This Energy System (meridians) maintains the balance of the flow of the life-force to every cell in every function of the Human Experience colon Body, Mind, and Spirit.

There are 26 bilateral energy release points (and each one tells a life story - Jin Shin is also known as a “physio-philosophy).  You can feel the flow of the energy as it circulates through the body. A blockage in this flow results in an imbalance and leads to dis-ease.  It's flow interrupted, a point becomes congested and cannot nourish or cleanse. This area can be sensitive or tender when touched. It may be bloated or puffy as the body seeks to protect the area made vulnerable by the blocked flow.  We hold these congested points in a specific pattern to release the blockage. The releasing action is much like using jumper cables to jump start.  The energy from our hands “Sparks” the body's energy system where it is blocked. Once the congested point or circuit breaker is opened, the nourishing and cleansing flow can continue. We will feel a light pulsation in our fingertips signaling to us that all is clear and then we can move our hands to the next Point designated in the sequence. Changes will begin to occur immediately. These changes continue to happen for several days. Notice the way the body releases blocked energy. Often there will be dramatic rumbling in the stomach, warmth, fluttering, less pain, or more pain when the blockage is considerable. These movements are indications that your body is healing. Relax with them. Know that the body seeks balance and that your purpose is to support your body.
