Adopting some of the Japanese healing methods can be very beneficial to our overall health. The Japanese have incorporated the alternative healing methods into the traditional medicine a long time ago. For instance, there is an alternative healing method based on the fingers used for balancing the body’s energy, resulting with full physical and emotional health. It is called Jin Shin Jyutsu.
WHAT IS JIN SHIN JYUTSY
Simply put, it is the Art of releasing tensions that can lead to various symptoms in the body. The body contains different energy pathways that feed life into all the cells. The blockage of these paths can result in discomfort and pain. If these pathways are blocked, the energy flow will be disharmonized.
This is where Jin Shin Jyutsu steps in, in order to awaken our awareness of a simple fact that we have the ability to balance the energy levels in our bodies and to harmonize it just like it should remain. As this ancient Physio-Philosophy claims, we are part of the Universe, and it’s rhythm should be followed physically, mentally and spiritually.
Jin Shin Jyutsu is seen more as an art rather than a technique. It is estimated that this art is known and recorded even before the birth of Buddha and Moses. It seems that it has been there forever, as an innate part of the wisdom of mankind. It was rediscovered in the beginning of the 20th century and it was brought to America in the 1950’s.
HOW IT WORKS
Jin Shin Jyutsu’s philosophy is well known to those who use their fingers to connect with a certain organ and a certain emotion. You actually have to grab your finger with the other hand if you want to affect an organ. Squeeze that finger for 3 to 5 minutes and make sure you take deep breaths while doing this. Eventually, by massaging each finger on your hand, you can attain the perfect harmony in your body.
Could it really be possible that you are only 5 minutes away from your body balance? Jin Shin Jyutsu believes that each finger is a connector with 2 organs and emotions and here they are explained:
For instance, the thumb is connected with the stomach and the spleen and can help you relieve stomach pain, headache, neurosis or skin problems. The thumb is also connected with emotions, specifically with anxiety and depression.
The index finger is connected with the bladder and the kidneys. On an emotional level, it is in relations with fear, confusion and disappointment. Massaging the index finger can help you ease back pain, muscle pain, digestive problems or toothache.
The middle finger is connected with the gall bladder and the liver. Out of the emotions it is related to anger and indecisiveness. By massaging the middle finger you can unblock the certain passage that leads to a better blood circulation, ends symptoms of menstrual pain, helps overcome tiredness, frontal headache and migraine.
The lungs and the large intestine are connected with the ring finger. Massaging this finger helps overcome asthma and respiratory problems, problems with digestion and skin diseases. On an emotional level it is connected with sadness and negativity.
The baby finger is related to the heart and the small intestine. By massaging the baby finger you can end the heartache, bone problems, stomach bloating and throat pain. The emotions that are related to the baby finger are anxiety, worrying, nervousness and lack of self-respect.
This art sounds so easy and very simple. Everybody can try it out while resting on the couch. Perhaps you are just five minutes away from the well restored balance in the body and the rhythm of the Universe. I’m definitely in!
