Relaxation is the gateway to all good things. There is no need to hold and harbor tension and stress in our body and being, it does us no good. In fact it drains us, depletes us and leaves us less effective in everything we do.

I am always asked, ” what is Jin Shin Jyutsu? ” “how does it work”. Perfectly reasonable questions, but not easy to answer. Jin shin Jyutsu is not a thing in itself, it cannot be perfectly described.

No water, no fish.
