SOUND AS A HEALING TOOL
Jin Shin Jyutsu is the art of using light, gentle touch to restore the body’s natural energy flow. Crystal singing bowls bathe you with soothing, calming sounds and healing vibrations which promote a peaceful state and support the body’s natural healing ability. This is a wonderful combination of breath work accompanied by the soothing sounds of crystal singing bowls. Two complementary modalities will relax and rejuvenate your body, mind and spirit. Participants will learn Jin Shin Jyutsu self help techniques they can use at home.

Instinctually, people place their hands on their body to soothe themselves. JIN SHIN JYUTSU is an ancient Japanese art that involves the application of the fingers and hands for gently balancing the flow of energy in the bodyto reduce stress, create harmony, relieve pain and alleviate chronic and acute conditions. By using JSJ we can open energy pathways in the body which may have become blocked. An ancient practice, it was rediscovered in the early 1900's by Master Jiro Murai, of Japan, who believed that the ability to use this Art is born in all of us. JinShin Jyutsu works to both restore and prevent, to helpourselves keep healthy, happy and youthful. It may be used by those experiencing stress or health disharmonies or for those who simply wish to maintain health and well-being.
JSJ as a therapeutic modality is used at medical centers such as: University of Kentucky Cancer Hospital, Morristown Medical Center, and University of San Diego Medical Center.

Through the use of various sound tools many experience emotional releases that transforms their lives. Sound accesses altered states of consciousness and awakens our Spirit.
Quartz crystal amplifies and transforms energy making the crystal singing bowls, also called intention bowls, a great accompaniment to the healing modalities of Jin Shin Jyutus and Reiki. The sounds of the crystal singing bowls entrain with your bodies’ energy sending you into a deeply relaxed state. Sound shifts you out of fight or flight state we have all come accustomed to into a relaxed and renewed state and it is in the relaxed state that we support the body’s natural healing ability
