Jin Shin Jyutsu

Jin Shin Jyutsu is a complementary ancient healing art that promotes health and well-being by harmonizing the body’s life force energy.


Rediscovered by Master Jiro Murai in Japan over a century ago, Jin Shin Jyutsu was later introduced to the West by Mary Burmaster. It is based on the concept that life force energy, also called “Qi”, flows throughout the body. When this energy becomes blocked, it leads to imbalances that manifest as physical, mental and emotional symptoms. By applying gentle touch to specific areas called Safety Energy Locks, blockages can be released, allowing the energy to flow harmoniously and promoting health and well-being.


Thanks to the perseverance and dedication of Adele Leas in extending the practice of this gentle art to animals, Jin Shin Jyutsu has achieved global recognition among companion-animal practitioners and caring pet parents who have embraced this practice to support their beloved animals in attaining and maintaining overall well-being.


While Jin Sin Jyutsu is generally practiced by a trained practitioner, it also offers self-help techniques to anyone who wants to take an active role in their well-being and that of their pets. During our visits, I will guide you in learning simple self-help applications that you can share with your cats between professional sessions. The effects of this gentle art are cumulative, meaning that daily applications or even simply holding one or two Safety Energy Locks while petting or cuddling with your cat multiple times a day can have a significant impact over time. As self-help is an integral part of Jin Shin Jyutsu, I encourage you to apply it to yourself before sharing this gentle art with your cat.


​Jin Shin Jyutsu is a complementary healing art that can be used alongside conventional medicine and other forms of therapy. It does not treat specific ailments but rather harmonizes the life force energy in the body, supporting its innate healing capacities. Due to its non-invasive gentle nature Jin Shin Jyutsu is generally well received by most cats who may not tolerate other more vigorous therapies.
