Book Description

Aug. 4 1997
The Touch of Healing offers readers the means to greater health, vitality, and self-understanding through the practice of an ancient oriental healing art and practical holistic philosophy called Jin Shin Jystsu. Gentle touching similar to acupressure is used to release tension that accumulates and is at the root of dysfunction, disease, and imbalance. The authors explain the natural life force that runs through the body and demonstrate with case studies, detailed analysis, and more than 30 illustrations, how to integrate this system into one's life. The key healing points and body flows, known as "Safety Energy Locks," are presented with step-by-step instructions on how to utilize them for healing and greater self-awareness. Many self-help practices are also offered that address a wide array of common ailments, including headaches, digestive disorders, fatigue, depression, and arthritis along with prescriptive exercises for relief of emotional ailments such as loss of confidence, anxiety, and depression.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Healing is Within Your Hands Dec 28 2001
I had been bed-bound for a year, when I bought this book. It is laid out in a logical way, with clear instructions and pictures. When I needed to do a sequence I drew stick figures using red circles for right and green for left pressure points on recipe cards. It was easier to follow than the written step-by-step on a day to day basis. You can look up what to do by your symptoms OR by the type of emotional stress you've been thru - we are MIND+BODY+SPIRIT=all intertwined. Doing Jin Shin got me out of bed, and is balancing my body and mind! My last blood test was so balanced it was incredible/unbelievable. This book gives you what you need to heal/balance your body: addictions, cravings, pains, all manner of physical problems, headaches, itchy places, too hot, too cold, chronic fatigue, heart problems, lung problems, you name it, there is something you can do about it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings... Feb. 22 2003
I did not get through this book. Perhaps it was because
it was so strongly recommended to me by a friend and my head
wasn't ready for it.
I know that Jin Shen brings up stuff and obviously this did.
I think I was intimidated about how to begin work on myself.
I don't think my review should have a lot of relevance to stop you from getting it. I am saving the book for a future look at it...when I have more courage to do the deep inner work. I
am a clairvoyant and tend to do things more mystically and etherically...the body is my place of difficulty....if you can
understand this orientation..its my challenge to reconnect to my
body....The friend who recommended this is now a practicing professional...she obviously loves it and is a fabulous practitioner...she worked on me and it was wonderful.

5.0 out of 5 stars miracle fingers Jan. 17 2000
Just to tell a few of you what this book has meant to my son and i.We first heard of jin shin in mayof 1999.philomena dooley and leyla wefalle,introduced my son and i in the middle of the nantucket.they were presenting a class the next morning..i said we would be ther .
my son has renal kidney failure,at 13 years of age.he is an absolute gem and has alot of spirit. after going to the class and realizing how good he looked and felt it was amazing..his blood pressure went way down and the bloat left his body he truly looked wonderful..we took the book home and read it like the bible it never leaves my bedside.main central makes my day function and we do the kidney flow on mike as much as possible dont forget he is 13(hahahah).we went for a five day treatment in boulder that words can not describe.we would like to go to arizona and have some more hands on..i think we could beat this kidney disease.with the likes of jin shin thank you may burmeister for bringing it to us

5.0 out of 5 stars Easiest self help ever! June 23 1999
My first experience using this book for self help was when I was feeling so nauseated and wiped out during menses that I could hardly walk across the room. I lay in bed with a hot water bottle and started doing the Main Central and Supervisor/Mediator - the Trinity flows (pages 45-54). An hour or so later I got up and felt absolutely fine! I thought - this is magic! To think I could just feel better by placing my hands on different locations of my body and holding them there, that I would harmonize my body and feel better - no effort, no machines, nothing extra, just me and this little book. Truly portable! I have since used this regularly for long distance highway driving, just doing it at a rest stop to re-energize me. Also in the book are general daily sequences (page 133) I have done while doing my laundry in the laundromat - "doing these in succession is an especially good way to deal with almost all of the various stresses we regularly confront in modern life." I have to agree. There is so much useful information in the book it seems overwhelming at first, but as I have explored it little by little, it always amazes me that even when I do it when I feel good, I feel even better! And when I have been feeling awful, that it helps so much! There is even a quickie "first aid" listing in the back of the book.. I used the left hand over right hand to keep a toenail on that I had mashed into some furniture.. also I find when I really would like to feel better, I just hold my fingers. The thing that is so wonderful about this book is this is a gold mine of information about self help that you can do anywhere, at meetings, waiting for the bus, in bed, anywhere. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Learning to use Jin Shin Jyutsu March 21 2010
Jin Shin Jyutsu is a gentle Art that uses specific patterns of touch to open energy blockages to help the body balance and harmonize. Through this book, people can learn the basics in order to work with themselves and others. This Art can be so simple to practice, that anyone can do it. The Touch of Healing offers an overall explanation. To go into a full depth of understanding, you would need to delve further into specific training. More in depth training comes through classes. I have recommended this book to family, friends, and clients wishing to experience and easy to practice, and profound methods of helping themselves to heal.
