High Touch Jin Shin is an energetic healing art that shares many of the underlying concepts of acupressure and acupuncture.

It respects the idea that life’s energy, the Qi (pronounced “chee”), flows through all things and employs the reading of energetic pulses to target imbalances. When the Qi moves freely throughout the body the body is in harmony. Should an energy pathway become blocked physical, mental, or emotional disharmony, or “dis-ease”, arises. Jin Shin identifies twenty-six energy release points and recognizes organ flows, number flows, and eight depths in the body’s energy cycles. Jin Shin utilizes the life force that emanates from our fingertips. The touch is light yet penetrating and supports the natural flow of the body’s energy.

Like acupuncture, Jin Shin employs the reading of energetic pulses to target imbalances in a body’s energy patterns. When the Qi moves freely throughout the body, the body is in harmony. Should an energy pathway become blocked, physical, mental, or emotional disharmony, or “dis-ease”, arises.

The goal of a Jin Shin session is to maintain or re-establish the balance of Qi energy in the body. The touch for Jin Shin is light yet penetrating and supports the natural flow of the body’s energy. Jin Shin utilizes the life force that emanates from our fingertips. The practitioner merely touches, or connects two of the twenty-six energy release points and waits for the energy flow to correct itself.

Jin Shin recognizes organ flows, related to organ systems as defined in eastern medical tradition, number flows, related to specific energy release points, and eight depths in the body’s energy cycles. As the energy cycles in through these depths it clears obstructions, and as it cycles back out it supports a state of well-being. Jin Shin promotes spiritual, emotional, and physical balance.

Jin Shin is a healing art that was known in ancient Japan. A folk tradition of healing, it was nearly lost to the modern world. Rediscovered in Japan by Jiro Murai in the early twentieth century, brought to the United States by Mary Burmeister and called Jin Shin Jyutsu, this healing art has enjoyed growing popularity in recent years. The form of High Touch Jin Shin is taught and promoted by Betsy Dayton, now living on San Juan Island in Washington State.
