Jin Shin Jyutsu at times of critical illness:
One of the most important studies on Jin Shin Jyutsu and cancer care was done in 2012 by the University of Kentucky Markey Cancer Center showing that patients reported significant improvement in side effects of cancer treatment following just one Jin Shin Jyutsu session.
Presented by Jin Shin Jyutsu integrative practitioner, Jennifer Bradley at the Markey Cancer Center Research Day, the study detailed 159 cancer patients who had received sessions. Before and after each Jin Shin Jyutsu session, Jennifer Bradley asked patients to assess their symptoms of pain, stress and nausea on a scale of 0-10, with 0 representing no symptoms.
The study found that in each session patients experienced significant improvement in the areas of pain, stress, and nausea with the first visit, and in subsequent visits as well.
"I was pleased to see quantitatively the improvements that patients noted in primary areas of discomfort," said Jennifer. "It was interesting to note that regardless of age, sex or diagnosis, cancer patients received a statistically significant improvement in the side effects from treatment. It is encouraging to note that Jin Shin Jyutsu made improvements in these areas without adding additional unwanted effects that so often occur with medication interventions."
