It’s all a bit much these days.
We’ve been in the midst of a pandemic outbreak like in 2020 and 2021 – often things seem chaotic, stressful, and beyond our control. Some of us have contracted the virus, others of us have been affected through fears and restrictions.
So much chaos in the world – and it can create chaos in your body as well.
When things are overwhelming and you may have difficulty settling, thinking, or even just being with yourself.
Three specific ways you can help yourself with Jin Shin Jyutsu
There are specific ways you can help yourself. 3 key ways to help yourself are: 1) reduce chaos, 2) detox our bodies (e.g. from a vaccine), and 3) strengthen our immune system.
1) Reduce chaos with JSJ
When we face challenging situations, it can bring some chaos into our lives. Helping ourselves to feel better isn’t a one-step process – there isn’t a magic solution. In addition to specific tips, managing our mindset can help. But we can support ourselves, calm the chaos during COVID times, and ease tensions by practicing Jin Shin Jyutsu. Here are two easy, simple holds to feel a bit better: A) the big hug and B) Top to bottom harmony
A) The big hug
Simply cross your arms, and place each hand in the opposite armpit.
Relax, drop your shoulders, follow your breath for a few moments.
The space under our arms (at the edge of the scapula) helps our complete being – physically, emotionally, and mentally.
B) Top to bottom harmony
Place your left hand under your right arm – in the armpit (like the first option here). For your right hand – reach down to the top of your left foot. Gently rest your hands in this position for a few moments, relax, and breathe. The space on the top of our foot specifically helps to reduce chaos in our bodies.
2) Detox your body with JSJ
Everyday challenges can leave pent-up tension and residues in your body. Even more so when you have added things for your body to deal with (for example, the chaos during COVID times). Whether it’s vaccination or other foreign substances in the body – it can tax your systems. To help your body process things more efficiently, follow this simple sequence. It helps support your body in releasing what isn’t needed.

3) Strengthen your Immune System with JSJ
We have natural immunity within our bodies – it generally protects us from external challenges. Sometimes, though, it can get overwhelmed and we might not feel as well. There are so many bits of help for the immune system – all the basics that we hear every day in the news – eating healthy, getting rest, exercising, drinking water, reducing stress. When things aren’t as good, we need to seek the care of our doctor to help us through.
In addition, we can do things to help support our immune system. This is especially important during COVID times. Rather than seeing it as a negative, we can reframe this challenge and focus on the unity in our lives. I invite you to visit the replay of a talk from March that I gave as part of the Mind-Body Experience. This short talk gives you some useful holds to help yourself. I’ve had great benefits through Jin Shin Jyutsu and it has greatly improved some immune disorders that I was challenged with.
You can also get help to support your immunity from a three-part series Simple JSJ Self-Help for Immune Support that I did with Kris in 2021. We focused on simple hand positions to help you feel better and to strengthen your immune system. These are helpful whether you have been exposed to viruses, have other environmental concerns, or are looking to support your disregulated immune system.

If you need more support during these times, please take care of yourself. Ring a family member or friend, seek medical attention if needed, take care of your basic needs.
