Jin Shin Jyutsu

Jin Shin Jyutsu

as a gateway to harmony

Jin Shin Jyutsu harmonizes the Vital Life Energy, which flows through the whole body in different energy flow patterns. When it flows unobstructed, we are mentally, spiritually and physically healthy.
However, vital energy can be disturbed by our thinking and emotional attitudes, as well as by stress, poor eating and working habits, injuries and genetic predispositions.

By applying simple self-help sequences, we experience the letting go of attitudes, such as worries, and the melting away of fears. They limit our perception and create a lot of stress in our daily life.

Although the knowledge of Jin Shin Jyutsu is extensive, it is remarkably simple and easy to apply.

Jin Shin Jyutsu

comes to the west

Jiro Murai

Jin Shin Jyutsu was brought to the West by Mary Burmeister. The daughter of Japanese parents. Dissatisfied with her life and curious about her parents’ country of origin, she traveled to Japan in the 1940s. Searching for the meaning of life, she met her future teacher Jiro Murai.

In his lectures, Jiro Murai spoke, among other things, of the primordial forces of man and their connection to the cosmic laws. Here, Mary felt at home. She sensed that the greatest healing power consisted in living in harmony with the laws of the universe and oneself.

Holding fingers changes thoughts

Der Atem heilt

Jiro Murai once said to Mary: “One day, you will understand that everything we need for harmony and balance is connected to the breath and fingers.”

Breathing, we receive life energy, which constantly purifies and renews. Each conscious breath fills the body with new life.

When we exhale, vital energy flows in the front of the body, from the head (heaven) down to the feet (earth). When we inhale, it flows in the back of the body, from the feet up to the head.

Exhaling is the most important: it allows us to empty ourselves and let go of everything that doesn’t belong to us now. When we inhale, cosmic energy flows into us and rebuilds the body.

"Whoever you are and

whatever qualities you have:


god is the source

and the power

that flows through all your channels."


Mary quoting Yogananda

Holding fingers changes thoughts

“If thoughts are lifted up, the whole organism changes.”
Mary Burmeister

“Change the focus of your thoughts, and your life changes,” said Mary. We all know how much our mindset affects our state of health. When we constantly have negative thoughts, our vital energy sinks along with our mood. We literally drag ourselves down.

Brooding and worrying, as is well known, affect the stomach and cause ulcers. When we think of our loved ones, our mood suddenly brightens, and we feel a warm sensation in our heart, although the person might not even be present. The thought alone brings forth the feeling or physical state within us.

Healing through the power of the fingers

Harmonizing the main central stream

source of our energy

Each of our attitudes is related to a specific finger. That’s why daily self-help is so important for achieving success. You can practice finger holding while sitting, lying down, or standing. Simply accustom yourself to holding a finger whenever your hands are free.
