What is Jin Shin Jyutsu?
Jin Shin Jyutsu is a gentle holistic therapy that helps your body release tension, reduce stress, and improve overall functions. This therapy uses light touch to harmonize your energy through specific places on the body. These specific places are located along the energetic meridians similar to those used in acupuncture and reflexology.
What kinds of things can JSJ help with?
Very simply – physical, emotional, mental – and even when you’re not sure what’s wrong.
Physical – our bodies function well when we’re not stressed, when external circumstances haven’t compromised us, and when we’re taking care of ourselves. I often think when someone has a specific concern – well, there’s a flow for that. It’s not a case that Jin Shin Jyutsu solves all our problems. But, rather that it supports our body and our innate ability to heal ourselves. We should consult with our doctor to ensure that we’re in the best of health. Jin Shin Jyutsu is a wonderful complement to traditional medicine.
Emotional – everything in our being is connected. When we’re experiencing difficult emotions, they can affect how we’re feeling physically and affect our mental processes. Even more so, when we have a persistent emotional state, it may be difficult to see a different way of being. Jin Shin Jyutsu can support us as we’re dealing with difficult emotions – and give us space to process things and connect with a broader perspective.
Mental – thinking clearly is very difficult when we’re stressed or physically taxed. In addition, when we’re holding tightly to our concerns, we tend to accumulate extra energy – this extra energy can things more difficult. Often, I find that people are holding their muscles tight (especially in their backs and shoulders), and this keeps too much energy in our heads. Not a good place to be.
When our energy is flowing freely, we feel well and have the energy to do things in our lives.
What should I wear to a JSJ session?
Clients often ask – what should I wear to my session? If you’re attending in person – you can come as you are – whether you’re in your most comfy clothes or in business casual on a quick break from work. One client even attended in a sparkly outfit before an evening out. The most important thing is that you’re comfortable. Sessions are carried out fully clothed – you need to remove only your shoes, your eyeglasses, and your watch. Loose, comfortable clothing is best – and clients often like to wear socks (this is optional). Ladies should wear trousers or leggings, rather than a skirt.
If you’re attending your session online – you can also come as you are. Some clients even opt to attend in their pyjamas and fluffy slippers. Just be sure to have some warm blankets nearby – the body temperature often drops with relaxation. I also recommend that you have a glass of water nearby and ensure that you have a quiet space where you won’t be disturbed.
First-time clients receive a full personal energy assessment. This is based on a confidential client questionnaire (to be completed prior to the session) as well as a gentle chat where we discuss your current concerns, past health history, and your hopes for the outcome of the session.
Do I need to wear a face covering or a mask?
Face coverings are not required currently for JSJ sessions with Energy Flows.
In some cases, clients opt to wear a mask. I’m happy to wear a mask as well – just ask.
I take your health and safety – and that of all my clients – very seriously. I minimise the risk of viral transmission through good hygiene practices. In addition, I have adopted the following measures in consideration of the infectious diseases including but not limited to flu and the Covid-19 virus.
I’m fully vaccinated.
I am mindful of interacting with others.
I use hand sanitiser before and after every appointment.
The treatment room has windows that can be opened weather permitting.
I run a HEPA filter throughout the session.
I fully sanitise the room between clients.
When is payment due for my JSJ sessions?
Full payment is due before or at the end of a session. There are no refunds for unused package sessions. All sales are final.
Cancellation and Punctuality
All appointments are booked in advance. Please be advised there is a 24-hour cancellation policy. If you have not cancelled 24 hours before the appointment, you will be charged for the session.
If you are more than 15 minutes late, you will be charged for this time and, depending on my schedule, we may not be able to stay later once the allotted time has expired.
Confirmation and Reminder Emails
I’m excited to work with you and value the time we have together. I trust that you also feel this way and will make your sessions a priority – both in your day and in your calendar. As a courtesy, I offer appointment confirmations and reminders through emails and/or messages. Please do not rely on these to ensure that you arrive at your session on time.
