The study of Jin Shin Jyutsu is a branch of traditional Chinese medicine. It looks at the 26 different energy centers of the body, which are connected with different organs and, when stimulated, each point opens the energy channels of the respective organ. As a result, the organ’s function is improved and there is an increased general wellbeing. The best thing is: you can apply it by simply massaging your finger for 1 minute.
Similar to acupuncture, this healing method is administered through pressure on specific body parts. Although some prefer Jin Shin Jyutsu and other acupuncture, for both the concentration is mainly on the fingers and toes. Here, the various fingers and toes are connected to different organs that are stimulated by applying different grips.
Here you can see the most important energy centres of Jin Shin Jyutsu:
The thumb is joined to the heart and lungs. A rapid heartbeat of breathlessness can be relieved through soft rubbing and pulling on the thumb.
The Index finger
This finger is connected to the gastro-intestinal tract. If you have an upset stomach, stomachache or constipation, then gently rubbing and pulling on the index finger should quickly alleviate the symptoms.
The Middle finger
The middle finger is linked to our circulation system. For dizziness and nausea, massaging the middle finger is particularly good for relieving the symptoms. This method can also help with insomnia.
The Ring Finger
The ring finger, according to the study of Jin Shin Jyutsu, is responsible for improving our mood. If you’re in a bad mood, or not feeling very patient, then massage this finger to calm down and relax.
The little finger is connected to the kidney and head. Regular application of the Jin Shin Jyutsu methods to the little finger can start the healing process for kidneys. For headaches and neck aches, pressing on this little finger should also alleviate the pain.
Just like acupuncture and acupressure, Jin Shin Jyutsu is a popular method for various ailments. For frequent or continual pain, it is always recommended to seek consultation from a doctor, to locate the cause of the problem.
