Jin Shin Jyutsu Self-Help Workshops

Karen Gay - Jin Shin Jyutsu is a healing art that involves the application of the hands for gently

balancing the flow of life energy in the body. Through regular practice,

one enhances the body's energy flow thus allowing one to be in balance with one's self and the

universe. In a Jin Shin Jyutsu Self-Help workshop participants learn how

to reduce stress, induce relaxation and facilitate one's own healing capacity. For individuals

addressing existing stress or health disharmonies, or for those simply

wishing to participate actively in maintaining health, harmony and well-being, Jin

Shin Jyutsu is an empowering tool that helps one to realize they can be self-sufficient

in their healing process. By the end of the workshop, participants will know how to help themselves,

friends and family with a simple method of placing the hands to help one's energy flow and harmonize

the body, mind and spirit.
