Health at your finger tips - Jin Shin Jyutsu - Ancient Secret from Japan

Jin Shin Jyutsu is an ancient holistic healing art, which is gentle and non-invasive. While it is difficult to say exactly where it began, there are evidences of it in many ancient cultures. Jin Shin Jyutsu was widely known in antiquity -- before the time of Buddha, Moses. Ancient Egypt, India, China and Japan all have historical evidence that indicates that, what we now call Jin Shin Jyutsu, was known in those cultures as well. This art was handed down by word of mouth for centuries.

Holding the fingers is a Jin Shin Jyutsu self-help practice that is extremely simple and yet profound. Because so many of the Jin Shin Jyutsu energy pathways run through the fingers (the ten fingers are said to regulate 14,400 functions within the body), holding the fingers is a way to balance and harmonize energy in the whole body.

Now let’s see which finger you should stimulate in order to eliminate negative feelings that might make you ill.

 1. The thumb – The treatment of anxiety. Also, by holding a finger on your thumb, you can overcome insomnia, digestive problems, headaches, stress and anxiety, and can handle prolonged sitting better.

 2. The index finger – The treatment of fear. Pressing it also relieves toothaches, backaches and muscle pain as well as constipation. It stabilizes the energy of the kidneys, and improves the health of the entire urinary system. You will be better able to do work on your feet.

 3. The middle finger – The treatment of anger. Also, pressing this finger lowers blood pressure, helps people suffering from fatigue, improves vision and eye health, and restores emotional balance.

 4. The ring finger – The point of anger management. Pressing it also treats coughs, respiratory diseases and skin diseases, and recovers the energy of the lungs and the colon.

 5. The pinky – The point of management of effort. In addition, its stimulation strengthens the heart, prevents abdominal bloating, and can improve self-confidence. If you have to walk a lot, you might want to keep a finger on this point.

6. The center of the palm – the treatment of fatigue. Holding the center of your palm can help with feelings of deep discouragement and despair. It can also help you to recharge your energy and balance your hormones.
