Get to “KNOW (Help) MYSELF” by using the following simple steps to Help Harmonize Blood pressure. Try these methods each time you have a blood pressure project and see what differences you notice…It’s that simple!

HARMONIZING BLOOD PRESSURE PROJECTS

Blood pressure projects of all kinds can be harmonized utilizing finger holds and certain flow patterns from the Jin Shin Jyutsu Self Help Books. With any kind of discomfort we are looking to move energy to a greater place of harmony.

Try these Methods;

Hold your little finger, left then right (or vice versa), until you feel a pulse (or hold for 2 minutes if pulse is not detected). Hold your middle finger in the same way. To maximize result, exhale, drop your shoulders, smile and naturally inhale as you hold each finger. Many people do multiples of 9 exhalations and inhalations, up to 36 times per finger. You can adapt this breathing practice to each method below. This will also help you de stress and relax

Place both hands on your sit bones (SEL 25s). Feel the pulse.

Place Left hand in left groin area (SEL 15) and Right hand on left shoulder (SEL 11). Feel the Pulse.

You can follow with:
Right hand in right groin area (SEL 15) and Left hand on right shoulder (SEL 11).

TESTIMONIALS
From: MO, JSJ Practitioner.

My mother-in-law suffered a stroke just 2 weeks after my first class. I had my husband hold his right hand on her neck with his left palm on top until I could get to the ER. I was 20 minutes away from the hospital when he called me. When I got to her room, I immediately looked at the monitor and it looked really bad. Her heart rate was 150 and her blood pressure was through the roof. My father-in-law told the doctor she had not taken her BP medication for almost 3 weeks. Even on blood pressure meds, her blood pressure was very high and uncontrollable.
When I got there, she was hooked up to everything in sight and I remembered hearing if someone was having a heart attack, to hold the left little finger and put the other hand between the shoulder blades on the back. I could not get to her back so I just held the little finger while my husband continued to hold her neck with his right hand with left palm over it. I thought she would either have another stroke or have a heart attack with the numbers I was seeing on
the monitor. The doctors would not give her anything and they wanted her to “bleed out”. Every time I grabbed her little finger, the monitor would go from 150 heart rate IMMEDIATELY to 70 the very next beat. It was a miracle.

Of course, holding the little finger was too simple for me and I thought I should do something more. However, I didn’t know enough having only learned JSJ just 2 weeks earlier. Finally, out of frustration because of the hospital bed and the monitor connections, I simply sat down to hold the little finger. After 15 minutes of holding that left little finger only because my other hand could not get under her back, her blood pressure came down to  normal numbers and her heart rate calmed down to a steady 70. My husband, who thought this was all quackery, saw the same thing. It was on the monitor. This was verifiable.

He is now a believer in the art and I was too that night. I had medical proof that holding the left little finger brought her heart rate down and lowered her high blood pressure without the use of any interventional drugs. The proof was on the monitor and with my mother-in-law, who survived the stroke without having a heart attack. It’s that easy to start reducing stress and start healing yourself!

Helping Our Eyes, Spring 2013

JIN SHIN JYUTSU® SELF-HELP
Experience Harmony at Your Fingertips….
“Self-Change starts with Self-Study.” – Mary Burmeister
Did you know that we all have the innate power to
help and heal ourselves?
“Until I can help myself, I cannot help another.”

Get to “KNOW (Help) MYSELF” by using the following simple practices each
day to help harmonize your Eyesight. Try these exercises every day for at least
7 days and see what differences you notice…It’s that simple!

HELPING OUR EYES

In this newsletter we learn to harmonize our eye projects (any eye issues, also including vision).
For all flows below, hold until you feel a pulse (or hold for 2 minutes if pulse is not detected).

First hold your middle fingers (left then right hand, or vice versa). Then hold your middle toes in the same way, or together at the same time. To maximize the result, exhale, drop your shoulders, smile and naturally inhale as you hold each digit. Many people do multiples of 9
exhalations and inhalations, up to 36 times per finger/toe, which brings you toward a feeling of wholeness and integration. You can do this breathing practice with any of the exercises below.

Place thumbs or fingers
on LEFT and RIGHT base of skull, sitting down, until you feel pulses on both sides.

Cup hands over eyes, covering SELs 20 on the forehead, with base of palms resting on SELs 21,
till you feel pulses on both sides.

Headaches, Fall 2012

JIN SHIN JYUTSU® SELF-HELP
Better Health For Yourself!….
“Self-Change starts with Self-Study.” – Mary Burmeister
Did you know that we all have the innate power to
help and heal ourselves?

“Rather than trying to correct, simply observe the harmonizing”
Quote from Page 24 of “WHAT MARY SAY’S” by Mary Burmeister

Get to “KNOW (Help) MYSELF” by using the following simple steps to
Help Harmonize Headaches. Try these methods each time you have a headache
and see what differences you notice…It’s that simple!

Head discomforts of all kinds can be harmonized utilizing finger holds and certain flow patterns from the Jin Shin Jyutsu Self Help Books. With any kind of discomfort we are looking to move energy to a greater place of harmony. For headaches we are looking to move stuck energy down, away from the head. So the simplest method is to use holds or flows that encourage energy to descend toward the toes.
As always in JSJ, there are several different ways of facilitating this. Headaches can be the result of our inability to digest on a physical, mental, emotional or spiritual level. Either way, remember to focus on harmonizing.

Try these Methods

A) Hold your thumbs including the pad of the thumb – aka Safety Energy Lock 18 (Fig 1), left then right (or vice versa), until you feel a pulse (or hold for 2 minutes if pulse is not detected). To maximize result, exhale, drop your shoulders, smile and naturally inhale as you hold each thumb. Many people do multiples of 9 exhalations and inhalations, up to 36 times per thumb. You can adapt this breathing practice to each method below. This will also help you destress and relax.

B) Place thumbs or finger or fingers on LEFT and RIGHT base of skull, sitting down, standing or lying down.

C) Just quietly hold the left and right groins (Safety Energy Locks 15) and in a few minutes, more or less, one can feel the tension/stress beginning to melt away in any head discomforts.

D) (1) Place left finger(s) on base of RIGHT cheek bone;  (2) Place right finger(s) at center of RIGHT collar bone. Hold for 2-3 mins to feel pulse. (3) Left finger stays, right finger(s) go to base of LEFT ribcage

TESTIMONIALS
Reprinted with permission from The Touch of Healing:
“Whenever I find myself at a higher altitude, I seem to be susceptible to headaches. These leave me incapacitated for at least a day. Recently, a friend instructed me on how to hold the base of my thumbs at Safety Energy Lock 18. She told me that this would help to clear up the pressure that I felt in the back of my head. I used this on myself during my next trip to the mountains, and was pleasantly surprised at the result!”

It’s that easy to start reducing stress and start healing yourself! Share this information with others who also want better health for themselves.

36 Breaths & Holding Fingers, Winter 2010

JIN SHIN JYUTSU® SELF-HELP

Experience Harmony at Your Fingertips….

“Self Change starts with Self Study” – Mary Burmeister
Did you know that we all have the innate power to help and heal ourselves?
Try either of these exercises below (or both) everyday for 7 days and see what differences you notice…It’s that simple!

THE 36 BREATHS
The simplest and most important SELF-HELP tool we have is our BREATH – The EXHALE and
the INHALE. When we exhale consciously and deeply, we release tension and stress. When
we inhale naturally, we receive an abundance of life energy. This life energy connects our
body, mind, and spirit. A good formula is EXHALE; DROP YOUR SHOULDERS AND SMILE.

Simply and consciously exhale while dropping your shoulders as if they are touching your
feet. The smile comes naturally as you release and gently welcome the inhalation.
Each day use this formula to EXHALE consciously and INHALE naturally, 36 breaths. You can do
this all at once or you can do 9 complete exhales and inhales four times per day.

HOLDING YOUR FINGERS
Another exercise is to gently wrap one hand around your other hands’ thumb and each finger
individually and then hold the palm of the other hand. Hold each finger, thumb, and palm for
at least 2 minutes apiece or longer. You can choose which hand you want to hold or do both.

The fingers and palm have energy connections to our mind, body and spirit. Alternatively, you
can do both exercises together as well… the 36 Breaths while holding your fingers. While you
hold each finger/position, do 6 complete breaths and then move to next finger/position and
repeat.

It’s that simple to start reducing stress and healing yourself! Share this information with

Left and Right Supervisor and Mediator Flows, Summer 2011

JIN SHIN JYUTSU® SELF-HELP

 Experience Harmony at Your Fingertips….

 “Self Change starts with Self Study” – Mary Burmeister

 Did you know that we all have the innate power to help and heal ourselves?        

 “It is the daily application of the simple sequences that will accomplish results as well as develop patience.   The knowing of the sequences but not applying them will not accomplish results.  It is awakening the awareness of the Getting to KNOW (Help) MYSELF, which will accomplish results” ~                                                                                      Quote from Page 9 of JIN SHIN JYUTSU IS, Self-Help Book 1 by Mary Burmeister

Get to “KNOW (Help) MYSELF” by using the following simple 3 steps each day to harmonize your Left “Supervisor” and “Mediator” Harmonizing Energy. (Just start with Left thumb for Left Flow) Try this exercise everyday for at least 7 days and see what differences you notice…It’s that simple! 

 LEFT AND RIGHT SUPERVISOR and MEDIATOR FLOWS 

As we discussed in the last issue, the Main Central Vertical Flow is the source of our life energy. This pathway runs down the center of the front of the body and back up the spine.   Amongst other things, it harmonizes what is known as the Left and Right “Supervisor” Harmonizing Energy.  This energy supervises the harmony of the left and right sides of the body.  The flow pattern of “The Supervisors”, begins between the belly button and the groin of the left side of the body, running down the inside left leg and up the back, eventually crossing over to harmonize the right side of the body.  As the circulation of this energy continues another very important energy comes into play – The Left and Right “Mediator” Harmonizing Energy.  Starting at the third thoracic vertebrae, and moving through the arms, this energy “mediates” from left to right and right to left sides of the body to see that each side of the body is in harmony with the Main Central Vertical Flow.

So with all these vital roles you can see that is important to keep these flows in harmony. Here is a Jin Shin Jyutsu self-help process to harmonize these pathways.

Harmonizing the Supervisor and Mediator flows regularly helps you feel balanced and importantly will also harmonize the 5 attitudes – Worry, Fear, Anger, Sadness and Trying to.  This ensures that you will have plenty of energy. Some people find it calming and use it to fall asleep, while others like to use it to invigorate them upon awakening. For optimum results, use this daily.

SUPERVISOR/MEDIATOR FLOW For left side energy (For right side energy, just replace left side directions with the equivalent right side directions)

Step 1a: Place left thumb over left ring fingernail (Make a circle with palm side of thumb over ring fingernail).

Step 1b: Place right hand over left shoulder.  (Simply place hand over shoulder as one would a coat hanger).

Hold for 2 to 5 minutes or until the pulses you feel at your fingertips synchronize with each other.

Step 2: Bring medial (inner sides) of left and right knees, together (feet apart or together).   Or place right instep against left inner knee.

Hold for 2 to 5 minutes or until the pulses you feel at your knees synchronize with each other.

These steps help to: Clear the Chest and revitalize ascending and descending energy It’s that simple to start reducing stress and healing yourself!  Share this information with others who also want Better Health for Themselves.

Hold Fingers for Attitudes, Fall 2011

JIN SHIN JYUTSU® SELF-HELP

Experience Harmony at Your Fingertips….

“Self-Change starts with Self-Study.” – Mary Burmeister

Did you know that we all have the innate power to help and heal ourselves?      

“Attitude is key to our harmony with the universe.” – Quote from Page 21 of JIN SHIN JYUTSU IS, Self-Help Book 1 by Mary Burmeister

Get to “KNOW (Help) MYSELF” by using the following simple practices each day to help harmonize your Attitudes. Try this exercise every day for at least 7 days and see what differences you notice…It’s that simple! 

HARMONIZING OUR ATTITUDES WITH SIMPLE FINGER HOLDS

In the last newsletter we discussed the role of the Supervisor/Mediator to help you feel balanced and harmonize the 5 attitudes:  Worry, Fear, Anger, Sadness and Trying to.  One of the attractive features of Jin Shin Jyutsu is that there is often more than one way to achieve the same objective.

So a simple way to harmonize Worry is to hold your thumbs (Fig 1), left then right (or vice versa), until you feel a pulse (or hold for 2 minutes if pulse is not detected).   To maximize the result, exhale, drop your shoulders, smile and naturally inhale as you hold each thumb.  Many people do multiples of 9 exhalations and inhalations, up to 36 times per thumb.  You can do this breathing practice with each finger hold below.

A simple way to harmonize Anger is to hold your Middle Fingers.

A simple way to harmonize Fear is to hold your Index Fingers.

A simple way to harmonize Grief is to hold  your Ring Fingers.

A simple way to harmonize Trying to is to hold your Little Fingers.

It’s that easy to start reducing stress and start healing yourself!  Share this information with others who also want better health for themselves.
