Current Hands-On Tip of the Week, Today: „Safety“-Energy Lock No. 9

(Self Help Book 2 by Mary Burmeister, p. 28)
SEL # 9 is located in the upper middle of the back, on the left and right of the spine at the level of the lower edges of the shoulder blades.

It came into the universe meaning end of a cycle is beginning of another. Every end is a seed of a fresh beginning, the basis of foundation.

The number 9 is the symbol of ageless wisdom.

SEL 9 controls the waist line – my lifestyle. If  SEL 9 is not in harmony, the ascending energy is blockated which burdens the waist line.

Harmonizing SEL 9 releases tension in the waist line and helps digestive processes and chest congestion.

At the level of attitudes, SEL 9 can free you from greed, the real cause of grief and grief. There can be no loss if there are no expectations.

Just hold the left and/or right elbow




hold right thumb with left hand and then left thumb with right hand.

Current “Hands-On” Tip of the Week, today: We hold our Thumbs!

All fingers and thumbs are simple keys to harmonize our attitudes. Mary differentiates 5 types of attitudes: worry😰, fear 😱, anger 😤, sadness 😭 and trying to 🤡. Worry is assigned to the thumb.

Worries pull us away from the present and dissipate our energies.

The thumbs are like leaders in a parade. If the thumb is not in rhythm, then all that follow the leader will get out of step, out of harmony. Thumbs are very important for the harmonious functioning of the body (Self-Help Book 3 by Mary Burmeister, p. 27).

By holding our thumbs we can release worries and brooding. It can also help with depression and eliminate the imbalance of  our stomach and spleen function energy. If we harmonize our stomach and spleen function energy, we calm our nervous system. Babies who suck their thumbs try already to help their imbalances.

Just take your left thumb with your right hand and vice versa. This can be held for as long as you like.

Have fun practicing Jin Shin Jyutsu!


Happy Birthday, Mary!

Today we celebrate the International Day of Jin Shin Jyutsu and at the same time the birthday of Mary Burmeister. Master Jiro Murai rediscovered the Art of Jin Shin Jyutsu at the beginning of the 20th century and through Mary Burmeister Jin Shin Jyutsu came to America in the middle of the last century and  since then Jin Shin Jyutsu spread around the world. We remember Jiro and Mary with gratitude and like to feel connected to all people around the world who apply the Art of Jin Shin Jyutsu today.

Today we introduce “Safety”-Energy Lock #11 (Self-Help Book 2 by Mary Burmeister, p. 32/33):

Current Hands-On Tip of the Week, today: Self-Help for the “Diagonal Mediator”

(Self-Help Book 1 by Mary Burmeister, p. 18, 19, 20)

Today we look at the “Diagonal Mediator” flow. If this flow is not in harmony, it can become the main cause of many malfunctions in the whole body.
By applying daily self-help we can bring this flow back into harmony.

This self-help application also harmonizes the left and right “Supervisor” energy.

The bridge to all changes and movement is in the “Diagonal Mediator” flow.

For harmonizing the energy on the left side:

1a.  place left thumb over left ring fingernail (make a circle with palm side of thumb over ring fingernail), helps cleaning the chest

1b.  place right hand over left shoulder, revitalizes the ascending energy

1c. put medial (inner) side of both, left and right knees, together, revitalizes the descending energy

Please use the opposite side for harmonizing the energy on the right side.

Have fun practicing!

Current Hands-On Tip of the Week, today: First Method of Correction (Text 1, page 55)

In August we already talked about the Fatigue Flow, today we would like to present the quickie for the First Method of Correction.

The Methods of Correction are very, very powerful flows and clean up the body.

Mary said that applying any of the fixes is sufficient to reverse a lifelong history of disharmony.

The First Method of Correction works with the Diagonal Mediator energy, which brings everything into motion and helps to harmonize emotions. It helps gridlocked projects and stagnation.

It is also very helpful with all shoulder and breathing projects.

As a self-help, we use the first step of the flow: left hand on left SEL 11 and right hand on left SEL 22.

Have fun practicing!

Current tip of the week, today: Special Body Function Energy (5) (Textbook 2, page 54)

Today we want to look at one of the five Special Body Function Energy Flows.

These Special Body Function Energy Flows help our modern, worldly lifestyle and help quickly in acute situations (just like the Fatigue Flow (shorthand current tip for the week of August 19).

This flow gives energy (tiredness during the day) to our whole being and reduces stress.

We apply it to all daily pain and projects.

In addition, it helps with all deposits in the body and helps the mobility of all our limbs.

It also helps the opposite eye.

So you see, this flow is very versatile and you absolutely want to use it …

As a self-help, we put our thumb on the little fingernail.

We hope you enjoy trying it out!
