Yesterday I posted an article about Emerson written by his owner, Julianne Dow, and how she used Jin Shin Jyutsu Stomach flows to help him lose weight. In that article Julianne referred to a previous article which follows:
The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, Number 69, Summer 2010 contains an article written by Julianne Dow about her dog, Emerson, a Labrador. As with all issues of The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, you can obtain a copy at http://www.jsjinc.net.
Emerson’s Testimonial…and My Gratitude
Emerson is my five-year old ninety-pound yellow Labrador, and my companion. This is his Jin Shin Jyutsu (JSJ) journey.
When Emerson was two he developed a fatty growth about the size of a ping-pong ball on the right side of his neck. I thought little of it since Labradors are notorious for “fatty growths”, and they are usually benign. Although, I did think it was unusual that he had developed one so early in life…
One day last summer, as I was putting on his leash, I noticed that the growth was bigger and harder…much different than it had been. It had grown to be the size of a small tangerine. I brought him to the veterinarian to get him checked out. She said it was “concerning”, and to measure it daily. I immediately emailed Adele Leas, a Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner (author of Jin Shin Jyutsu For Your Animal Companion) for support, and started a variety of Jin Shin Jyutsu treatments on him…I finally settled on the “human” Liver Flow since the accumulation was on the right side of the neck, and he also had a knee project. He received daily treatments at bedtime, relaxing with exhales, moans and the “slitty eye” blissed-out expression on his face. After one week, I noticed the accumulation was “more squishy”. It began to disintegrate, and disappeared after three weeks of treatments. Now THAT was validation that JSJ works!
Earlier that year, Emerson also developed a bone spur accumulation on the right knee at the inside joint (R1). He was limping very badly, walking using only three legs, barely making it up the stairs at night. We sadly needed to give up our running in the woods and catching the “chucky ball” for walks on the leash around the neighborhood. I gave him lots of Hi 1 and Lo 8, and then I put my hand on his 8 and my other hand just below the 8, gradually moving down his leg to grasp the 5 and 16. (See page 34 in Adele’s book) On page 38, Adele works with 3 and 15. I give Emerson 3 and 15 and then 3 and 25, just as I do on myself. While receiving one of my own Jin Shin Jyutsu sessions, Jed Schwartz recommended the Kidney Flow for bone projects. I started giving Emerson the “human” Kidney Flow, R1/opp. 26, and Reversing and Increasing of 4th Depth. Fairly recently, I noticed that the hard bone accumulation seemed to be getting smaller. Or was that just my imagination and wishful thinking?
