Notes from My Side of the Table...
Let me tell you about 'Sara' who never had a Jin Shin Jyutsu session before...
In last week's vlog I talked about how effective Jin Shin Jyutsu self-care can be. While I made that video I imagined I could almost hear a 'Well, yeah but…' coming through the camera....
Yeah but...your husband must have had lots of sessions with you. You've been at this for 18 years. You know exactly what to do, and how, and when… How could I know all that stuff?
Or, yeah but...doesn't someone who's had a session with a practitioner get better results than someone doing it on their own?
And to that I have to say 'Well, yeah... but'
Let me explain.
There are definitely things a practitioner can do that you can't do as well on yourself. For example, when there are more serious, life-threatening health challenges it can get pretty complicated. Those are the big challenges that have usually built up over time. At a certain point the immune system gets overwhelmed.
That's when you want a practitioner doing hands-on work.
Self-care bridges the gap. It’s a simple and effective way to keep your immune system and health humming along, and it builds up like diet or exercise.
It's the daily practice of self-care that creates a cumulative effect.
You wouldn't go to your fitness trainer or nutritionist every day. It’s the same with Jin Shin. Self-care is like eating right between visits to your nutritionist. It’s doing your part to create and maintain your well-being on all levels.
When I listen to someone's pulses I can often tell when a client has been doing their self-help.
Simply put: self-help in conjunction with a practitioner accelerates your progress significantly.
Wouldn't it be great to have tools you can do on yourself that stop you even needing a practitioner?
In this week’s video I talk about 'Sara' who had never, ever had a Jin Shin Jyutsu session. Her progress, just doing self-help, was significant. The results of this simple yet powerful practice ended up being a tremendous relief to her.
