Alexis Brink talks about her new book The Art of Jin Shin: The Japanese Practice of Healing with Your Fingertips.
Do you know you hold the power to heal yourself right at your fingertips? Jin Shin Jyutsu is based on the ancient Japanese healing art of energy medicine that is now practiced throughout the world.
Although related to acupressure, acupuncture, and massage therapy, the Art of Jin Shin is not a physical manipulation of tissue and uses only minimal pressure. It involves a gentle touch with the fingers and hands to redirect or unblock the flow of energy along the body’s 52 points called Safety Energy Locations on pathways where energy tends to get stuck.
This simple, gentle process allows energy to flow smoothly in the correct direction. With balance restored, comes a sense of well-being and calm.
We talk about
