Lynne Pflueger shares her experience with simplicity in the article Movement Order of Disharmony published in The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter, issue Number 57, Summer 2007:
“To stop worrying about your own body, change your focus to someone else’s body.” ~ Mary Burmeister
Sometime during the early eighties, I had a client who came to see me twice a week. Among her list of complaints were fibromyalgia and fatigue. The more troublesome of the two was the muscle discomfort and pain. After each session, feeling much better, she was very quickly up and out the door to keep her next appointment.
She was very successful in her field, quite busy, and always beautifully dressed to suit her lifestyle. Jin Shin Jyutsu consistently helped her to feel better and to keep functioning. Usually on the return visit, however, she would report an absence of pain and fatigue for a few days, only to have the symptoms return before the next session. Often it occurred to me that it would help if she slowed down a bit. The 15 Flow helps to harmonize those individuals with 12 irons in the fire. On page four, in Text 2, reference is made to discomfort. The 15 Flow is indicated when there is pain or discomfort in the body. So, for two reasons, I used the flow on her often. Searching for a definitive diagnosis to explain all the aches and pains, she was at one point given the label of Shogrun’s Syndrome, an auto immune condition.
After several months with little change, I suggested that she go to Arizona for an intensive. My thinking was at the time that being away from her busy lifestyle and receiving ten sessions in five days, she would have rest and relief from her condition.
Liking the idea, she made appointments with Mary, took her husband with her, and each of them received ten sessions. At Mary’s suggestion, and her husband’s willingness to get involved, my client from then on received the Movement of Disharmony Flow every evening. Mary instructed him to use the flow for twenty minutes on the most painful side of her body, and ten minutes on the least painful side. It is such a simple flow, using only Safety Energy Lock 6 (at the instep on the seam of the arch) and same side little toe.
Simplicity is potent.
My observation at the time was that the intensive made a difference, and the Movement Order of Disharmony Flow, applied by someone else every day, provided the momentum to keep her going forward. She continued for a while to come twice a week. After a couple of months she said that she felt better, dropped to once a week, then soon stopped coming at all. Every once in a while she came for a tune-up. Her husband had continued to help her each evening and she felt well and had made some changes in her lifestyle
