Jin Shin Jyutsu to the Rescue

by Michelle Giambra, Feb 1, 2013
Moving Day “Interrupted” by Emergency Call
This New Year’s Day was spent setting up the new home for Suncoast Jin Shin Jyutsu in the Rosemary Court Wellness Center.  We had been working on the room for several hours when I noticed I had a voicemail.  It was a message from Kip Ortiz who had seen the Suncoast Jin Shin Jyutsu door magnet on my vehicle in the parking lot.  Kip was having chest pains and wondered if I was nearby and able to see him.  (As it turned out, by the time I received this message, Kip had gone to the Emergency Room, which is what I would have recommended.) 
Just after I listened to his message, I saw Kip outside my door and I asked him how he was.  He replied, “I was having chest pains for over an hour that had me going to the ER before they calmed down, but within 30 or so minutes they were beginning to ramp up again.”  
Almost instantly, I had an intimation regarding the energy pathways that might be congested and related to his chest pains.  We cleaned the carpentry materials off the Jin Shin Jyutsu table (which was serving as our workspace for the move.)   Kip laid down on the table and I listened to the energy pulses in his wrists which confirmed what I was suspecting.
As Above, So Below ~ As in the Front, So in the Back
Oftentimes, a symptom above the waist is helped by clearing the energy below the waist and likewise, a symptom in the front of the body (such as chest pains) is helped by clearing energy in the back of the body.
I placed one of my hands on his spine and the other on his wrist.  Immediately, he commented that where I placed my hand on his spine was really sore.  I simply continued to gently apply my hands (to harmonize the flow of the energy pathways) on those areas in addition to some other places on his body.  Within minutes, I felt the energy harmonizing and congestion clearing and he felt relief.  I continued to apply Jin Shin Jyutsu for about ½ hour longer.
Kip shares:  “Afterwards by the end of the session, my back/chest did not hurt, my neck and head were relaxed and I literally felt like I had taken a valium because I felt loosey goosey and healthy after being so tight and uncomfortable. In my book, that is money well spent (on a Jin Shin Jyutsu session), especially compared to a (second) visit to the ER where they would have done a lot of tests and probably have given me a muscle relaxer and sent me home after it was obvious I was not having a heart attack.”
Knowing, understanding and applying valuable knowledge and experience from years of studying and practicing Jin Shin Jyutsu helped save the day for Kip, who says, “Thanks for getting me out of a tight spot, literally!”
Personally, I can’t think of a more fitting way to initiate the new home of Suncoast Jin Shin Jyutsu!
Postscript, Kip Also Shares:

In the past I have worked with two different cranial sacral practitioners who live in Sarasota who I know to be very good at healing and moving energy. I'm not an energy "snob" but there is a certain skill or ability you have to have before I can honestly give someone an endorsement of being skillful at what they practice. Michelle easily belongs in this category. For me I really enjoyed her modality as a bit of a combo of both cranial sacral and Chinese medicine where she used energy lines (i.e. meridians) and pulses of the body to interpret the flow of energy while still having aspects of cranial sacral involved also. I would definitely recommend Michelle as a top notch healer.
