Art of Getting to Know (Help) Myself, JIN SHIN JYUTSU, – with Guest Speaker Lucia Jayaseelan


JIN SHIN JYUTSU® literally translated is:


SHIN – Creator

JIN – Man of Knowing and Compassion
(Art of the Creator through man of knowing and compassion)

JIN SHIN JYUTSU is the Art of releasing tensions which are the causes for various symptoms in the body. Our bodies contain several energy pathways that feed life into all of our cells. When one or more of these paths become blocked, this damming effect may lead to discomfort or even pain. This blockage or stagnation will not only disrupt the local area but will continue and eventually disharmonize the complete path or paths of the energy flow.

Through Jin Shin Jyutsu our awareness is awakened to the simple fact that we are endowed with the ability to harmonize and balance ourselves (in rhythm with the universe) physically, mentally and spiritually.

Jin Shin Jyutsu is an art as opposed to a technique because a technique is a mechanical application, whereas an art is a skillful creation. This beautiful, simple Art is our inheritance.

According to ancient written records, which remain in the Archives of the Imperial Palace in Japan, Jin Shin Jyutsu was widely known before the birth of Gautama (Buddha, India), before the birth of Moses (recorded in the Bible), and before the Kojiki (Record of Ancient Things – Japan, A.D. 712). Jin Shin Jyutsu is an innate part of man’s wisdom – simplifying the complexities of existence – and is truly an Art of Living.

Jin Shin Jyutsu was rediscovered by Master Jiro Murai early in the 20th century. His student, Mary Burmeister, brought the Art from Japan to America in the 1950’s.

Lucia Jayaseelan practices the art of Jin Shin Jyutsu and is qualified to teacher Jin Shin Jyutsu Self Help. She encountered Jin Shin Jyutsu while visiting communities in Aceh after the tsunami where people were shown how simply holding their fingers helped calm them and induce sleep. Since then with a group of other women activists/women human rights defenders (WHRD) in Asia and globally she has through `wellbeing and self care’ workshops supported other WHRD through their work and traumas.

Lucia moved to Stroud about four years ago to be close to her daughter and grandchildren. She enjoys the friendship that Stroud offers amidst the serenity of its hills and rivers. She loves walking, yoga and Ayurveda. Lucia is also qualified in Reflexology, Craniosacral, Massage, Reiki and Asian bio-energetic treatment.
