Phil Stock: Being His Own Testimony

We have finished looking at the 26 Safety Energy Locks as shared by various JSJ instructors in The Main Central.

There is so much more for me to share about self-help with you, but there is one article in issue Number 29, Summer 2000 that says so much about this healing Art; I’m going to share it with you before we move on.

Phil Stock contributed an article about his wife’s stepfather entitled Being His Own Testimony.

“Red” has multiple “projects” with medical “labels” beginning in 1980 with needing to wear a pacemaker. In 1991 he underwent quad-bypass surgery with complications that affected his blood platelet count leading to clotting challenges. In 1995 he had carotid artery surgery that was initially unsuccessful requiring a total of 3 procedures in the span of 4 days. A lymph gland was “nicked” during the last procedure causing it to shut down. This, in turn, led to gross swelling of his arm as the lymphatic fluid built up; sometimes “springing a leak” of clear fluid escaping the tissue.

From 1993 through 2000, he was treated for multiple skin cancers which, when removed, aggravated his healing abilities because of the low platelet count.

In 1994, Red attended a Jin Shin Jyutsu self-help class for the first time, the first of 3 he would attend. His children continued to give him regular JSJ sessions, and Red faithfully added daily self-help. He slowly improved but was lonely and depressed because his life was so limited by his projects. Other JSJ flows were added to raise his spirits so he would not give up.

Red’s daughter learned and added a lymphatic massage technique and his health improved dramatically.

In 2000, at age 87, Red was again playing golf and had a new lady friend…they planned a cruise and he was teaching her how to play golf!

Phil closes his article with this: “He is certainly BEING his own testimony!”

There are many details in the article that I have omitted here, but the issue with the full text can be obtained at

Thank you, Red.
Thank you, Phil.

Guess it ain’t over ’til its over!

Gassho, Namaste, Blessings
