When it comes to medicine, modern medical science has accomplished so much but there are still so many things about the body we've yet to fully understand. Increasingly, people are finding that where modern medicine falls short, alternative treatments can help. Often, these alternatives were developed centuries ago. Modern medicine represents a very single-minded approach to the body, while more ancient traditions tend to view it more holistically.
One example of such a treatment is Jin Shin Jyutsu, a form of acupressure that combines techniques from several ancient traditions including Japanese and Chinese acupressure. It holds that the body consists of several pathways of energy. By applying pressure with their fingertips to one of 52 possible pressure points, a Jin Shin Jyutsu healer can determine if there are any imbalances or impedances in the flow of energy through the body and then work to correct that flow.
Patients who have undergone Jin Shin Jyutsu treatments report it to have helped them with many different physical and emotional problems. The best part is that you can do it to yourself, in the comfort of your own home and it takes just a few minutes. Just refer to the chart above to see which feeling you'd like to alleviate and then hold that corresponding pressure point for 3-5 minutes while breathing deeply. Below is some additional information on which body parts each finger corresponds with.
