Jackie’s Transformation

Jackie’s Transformation from stress to serenity

I had never heard of Jin Shin Jyutsu – it was a time when I was stressed and looking for a bit of serenity in my life. I first stumbled on the foreign term while exploring meridians. Hopefully, I went for a session. I felt a bit better and more relaxed after my first session. Still, I didn’t understand how it worked. From the very start, I was intensely curious.

During this time in my life, I was so tense that I was often in pain. Most days were filled with pain and tension. During sessions I felt that the practitioner must be applying great force and pressure – amazingly, her hands rested lightly on the surface of my clothes. The discomfort came from my own tension, rather than external pressure. Each time, though, the tension eased, my body relaxed, and I felt so much better. My health improved as my tension eased.

Before the transformation

My experience with Jin Shin Jyutsu has changed over time – from feeling better to life-changing experiences. I see the world differently. As per the Jin Shin Jyutsu tagline, I now KNOW myself.

I remember those days of pain, fatigue, and despondency.

And I’m so grateful that they are only a memory. Now I can wake with the sun, and I meet the day with enthusiasm and energy.

Keeping myself in good nick relies on morning rituals, regular Jin Shin Jyutsu self-care practices, and being present (both for the good and bad stuff).

The best part is that harmony is within our reach – you can help yourself. Many people come to know Jin Shin Jyutsu and it improves their lives. They feel better, they have more energy, they’re more peaceful and positive.

Sometimes, when something resonates so deeply with you, you may feel called to devote your life to it. This is how it was for me.

Transformed to serenity and beyond

From the very start, it intrigued and soothed me at the same time. I was intensely curious – how? what? deeper connections? It has led me to daily practice and study. I’ve also been fortunate to study with many of the official Jin Shin Jyutsu instructors around the world: Anita Willoughby, Mona Harris, Waltraud Riegger-Krause, Philomena Dooley, Susan Schwartz, Petra Elmendorff, Wayne Hackett, Chus Arias, Sadaki Kato, and Majella Delaney. I have studied online in 2020 and 2021 with Sara Harper, Jed Schwartz, Jill Pasquinelli, and Ian Harris. In recent times, I’ve started sharing about this art online – free of charge. These offerings, talks from the Mind Body Experience, are available to everyone. You can access the recordings on the Energy Flows YouTube channel.

I look forward to sharing the gentle of art with you.
