What is Jin Shin Jyutsu?

Quite simply, Jin Shin Jyutsu is a way to balance our life energy and achieve optimum health.  Through hands-on sequences we have the opportunity to restore emotional equilibrium, relieve pain and release the cause of both acute and chronic conditions in ourselves and others. This may be used safely in conjunction with any therapy or medication and can be used anywhere and at any time.

With a physio-philosophy based upon our own natural, innate ability to harmonise ourselves, Jin Shin Jyutsu translates simply as “Art of the Creator through man of compassion and awareness” and has a history dating back over 5,000 years.

Over thousands of years, this wisdom and awareness fell into obscurity until a Japanese sage named Jiro Murai rediscovered Jin Shin Jyutsu in the early part of the twentieth century. His three key students included Mary Burmeister (a Japanese American woman),  her father and a Japanese doctor named Haruki Kato. After the war, Mary Burmeister brought the Art from Japan to America in 1954 and through her teachings, books and the many classes held around the world each year, this awareness continues to grow exponentially.  Today, many thousands  of people practice this Art through self-help application for daily living and offer one-on-one sessions for the benefit of others.  As Director of the Mary Burmeister Jin Shin Jyutsu Institute, Mary’s son David Burmeister guides the faculty at the main office in Scottsdale, Arizona.

“The truth is that within each one of us lies the power to cast all misery aside, to KNOW complete Peace and Oneness-to BE that beautiful creation of perfect harmony-to truly KNOW (Help) MYSELF”. ~ Mary Burmeister

“This sentence really conveys what our possibilities are. The outer world, and the inner world don’t have to be the same. And if I can help myself then the truth is, I can help the people around me. When we are connected to our higher self then the suffering that most people experience, disappears. Many think this is for ‘special people’ but we all have the capability. 
Whatever your thoughts, let it go and come back to the breath so we can be here fully. Where we are right now, we connect to the unified field of Oneness that connects the world” ~ Jed Schwartz

Jin Shin Jyutsu news… Scottsdale, Arizona

A lovely article for the Voyage Phoenix, Arizona magazine introducing David Burmeister, and The Mary Burmeister Jin Shin Jyutsu Institute, Scottsdale, Arizona http://voyagephoenix.com/interview/meet-david-burmeister-mary-burmeister-jin-shin-jyutsu-institute-mccormick-ranch-Scottsdale/

Announcement from David Burmeister,

Director of Jin Shin Jyutsu inc. Scottsdale, Arizona

Instructor Candidate Evaluation Program
The Jin Shin Jyutsu Instructor Training Program (ITP) is being renovated and has a new name. The program is now called the Instructor Candidate Evaluation Program or ICEP. The Mary Burmeister JSJ Institute is currently looking for a few very experienced candidates to apply to the ICEP to determine if they are qualified to join the program.
In the past, new instructors have been brought into JSJ, Inc. through a process initiated twenty years ago. To ensure the quality of teaching expected of our faculty, the program continues to be reviewed and revised.
Applicant requirements are quite extensive because individuals are expected to begin practice teaching once they are accepted into the program and are given the opportunities to hone these skills. To more adequately describe this process, the Instructor training program (ITP) was renamed the Instructor Candidate Evaluation Program (ICEP).
At this summer’s faculty meeting, the need for new instructors will, again be addressed. It is likely some openings in the ICEP will be approved to cover the anticipated needs of the organization based on the growth of Jin Shin Jyutsu throughout the world. If you have interest in becoming a JSJ instructor, find out more about this program at: http://www.jsjitp.com/
The parameters of the program will be available at this website until the changes in the revision are integrated. Qualified applicants may complete the existing online application on the ITP website to begin the process. Good luck to all of you who are interested in joining the JSJ faculty

Thank you!
David Burmeister
