WHAT DOES A SESSION ENTAIL
During a Jin Shin Jyutsu® session the patient remains clothed and lies face-up on a cushioned acupuncturist's or massage table. I use observation and pulse diagnosis to create a personalized treatment plan for addressing a given project or condition at the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level. After a personalized assessment, I employ hands-on harmonizing sequences or "flows," appropriate for unblocking energetic pathways and restoring harmony and balance.
A "flow" is a series of hand placement combinations at various energy points on the body that stimulate the circulation of energy along a given pathway. There are many such pathways in the body, each with a distinct function and essence.
At the end of each session I provide my patients with a simple self-care flow or set of flows unique to them that they can adopt and integrate into their daily health and wellness routine. I also include guidance on accompanying Breathwork practices.
