Self Help is the heart of Jin Shin Jyutsu as we know it today. 

It was by healing himself of a life threatening illness that Jiro Murai re-discovered the wisdom of this ancient art in 1912 in Japan. His student, Mary Burmeister brought Jin Shin Jyutsu to America in the 1950’s and wrote a series of three self help books that are the basis for the self help classes we offer.

Jin Shin Jyutsu engages one in self awareness, self understanding, and self help.  Are you interested in learning simple, yet profoundly effective ways to be in balance on all levels of your being? Are you interested in learning how to interpret and respond to signals of imbalance from your body?  Are you or a loved addressing specific health projects?  If so, you may find Jin Shin Jyutsu self help to be just the thing you’ve been looking for.  Our classes may provide you with tools to be your best mentally, emotionally, and physically.

What people have experienced:

"My headache, that I had all day, is gone." "My shoulder doesn't hurt anymore." "I slept better after class than I have in a very long time."

"When I woke up the morning after class the allergy symptoms (I've been suffering with for months) were completely gone."

"I feel totally 'Zen.'" "This was more powerful than guided meditation classes I have attended."
 

One participant explains: "It's so very simple. You lie in a comfortable position and follow Michelle's instruction on where to place your hands. At first, you're thinking, what is this. Then, before you know it, you're in another space, and you're not really sure how you got there, but the experience is truly profound. You feel like a new person at the end of class. It's simply amazing."
