The origins of this ancient art of healing go back thousands of years. The original healing traditions did not differentiate between body, mind, and soul. The methods were focused on physical, emotional, and spiritual wholeness.
This knowledge lies within us!
For thousands of years people have used this knowledge that we have an innate ability to harmonise ourselves and mature physically, mentally and psychologically. In the course of time, this knowledge had almost disappeared.
At the beginning of the twentieth century, the Japanese Master Jiro Murai made this knowledge accessible again and called it JIN SHIN JYUTSU.

He wanted the whole world to have access to this art and trained Mary Burmeister for 12 years, giving her this knowledge as a present to take back to the U.S.

JSJ is the art of the creator expressed through compassionate people
JIN means “the highest virtue to be expressed by men, being the essence of humanity”
SHIN has different meanings and can be translated as “wonderful effect”, one that we cannot entirely comprehend with our intellect and knowledge
JIUTSU translates as “path” and means “art” or “method”

The basic principle of JSJ is self-help which makes JSJ a life-long journey to ONESELF!
It harmonises our life energy and loosens blockages in our body. Every one of us has the means to restore a harmonious balance: BREATH and HANDS.

JSJ is easy, unobtrusive and can be practised everywhere – for instance in a full bus or in a meeting. All we need to do is hold one or more fingers!

In Fumonji we teach and learn self-help time and again and realise how wonderfully we were given all we need by the creator.
We practise JSJ with meditation as described in the next article. We are always deeply touched to experience the effect that silence has on the flows.
