FAQ: Frequently Asked Questions

We highly recommend that all Jin Shin Jyutsu students attend at least one Self-Help class held by qualified Self-Help teachers. These Self-Help classes are based on Mary Burmeister’s Self-Help Books 1, 2 and 3. During this class, we study fundamental principles of Physio-Philosophy and how to apply the Art to ourselves and those in our lives. This class is a suitable preparation for the 5-day basic seminar.

A Jin Shin Jyutsu session generally lasts about an hour. It does not involve massage, manipulation of muscles, or use of drugs or substances. It is a gentle art, practised by placing the fingertips (over clothing) on designated safety energy locks, to harmonise and restore the energy flow. This facilitates the reduction of tension and stress which accumulate through normal daily living.

We suggest wearing comfortable clothing, and if you eat before a session to have a lighter meal than usual.

We recommend to allow extra time for a repose period, since the session is continuing to have an effect for approx. 8 hours. Of course you can also fully dive into live after the session, with the understanding that it feels okay for you. On the whole there is no „must“ and no rules and regulations at Jin Shin Jyutsu.

The fees tend to vary from city to city, and from one practitioner to another. Factors such as costs for continuing eduction, local cost of living, expenses for an office, and the extra expense of making house calls can all influence a student practitioner’s fee. Generally costs of 40 € to 80 € will be charged.

Any session is harmonizing the entirety of body, spirit and soul – even if you’re doing well, it’s a good investment in your well-being and health. A daily Self-Help routine is helping too. After a session you will receive a personal Self-Help routine from your practitioner.

You can practice Jin Shin Jyutsu self-help as often as you like on yourself. There a no rules and regulations.

The session is continuing to have an effect for approx. 8 hours – energy needs eight hours approximately to pass through the whole body. This means that it is highly recommended to wait for eight hours after a treatment for another treatment.
