Book Review of The Touch of Healing, Energizing Body, Mind, and Spirit with the Art of Jin Shin Jyutsu® by Alice Burmeister

This month I decided to do a book review of The Touch of Healing, Energizing body, Mind, and Spirit with the Art of Jin Shin Jyutsu®.

This is a fantastic book which outlines the history of Jin Shin Jyutsu, a Japanese healing method which was rediscovered by Jiro Murai in the early 20th century.

After a very long gap between reviewing books, I'm delighted to start up again with this book by Alice Burmeister (with Tom Monte).

I had experience a few years ago of receiving Jin Shin Jyutsu and found it deceptively simple and oh-so-effective in treating whatever ails you.

I have a background of Reiki and Reflexology but I was looking for a simple healing practice that I could use every day, to encourage ongoing good health rather than just treating ailments as they came up.

This book is written in a very relaxed and easy style that covers the 26 Safety Energy Locks throughout the body, plus additional Mudras (finger and hand postures) and sequences that can be done.

Rather than go into Jin Shin Jyutsu and it's principles here, I can tell you that the practice involves gentle holding of the fingers and the aforementioned Safety Energy Locks on the body.

About this Book
Review of The Touch of Healing

The purpose of Jin Shin Jyutsu, as described in the book, is to harmonise the life energy that flows through all of us.

You can treat chronic or acute problems (either mental or physical) and also use this method everyday to ensure your body and mind is functioning at it's optimum level.

The holds and positions are so subtle and discreet, you can use them at work, at home, on the train – wherever!

If you're thinking about investigating healing methods for yourself or to study, I'd highly recommend starting with this book and this fascinating ancient healing practice.

I can't endorse Jin Shin Jyutsu enough. My own copy of this book is now well thumbed, quite shabby-looking and read almost every day! I love it! Very highly recommended.

Rating: 10/10
