A Unique Treatment for Fibromyalgia: Jin Shin Jyutsu

A 71-year-old female presented three years ago with diagnosed Fibromyalgia in 1997 and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in 1993. She had seen three previous Integrative Medicine physicians and was much improved on B6 and B12 shots and compounded thyroid hormone.

I placed her on intravenous vitamins and minerals with high dose vitamin C. She also received FSM (Frequency Specific Microcurrent) treatments, which were designed to treat spinal cord injury, one of many causes of Fibromyalgia. Her depression improved and her pain diminished. She also wasn’t dropping things as much.

Up and Down, then Finally UP!

 Over the next three years she continued with an up and down course, partly because of other medical conditions—asthma, allergies, insomnia, migraines and adrenal fatigue. Three months ago we decided to try Jin Shin Jyutsu, an ancient energy art from Japan, similar to acupuncture but no needles. During each treatment, her husband learned where to place his hands so he could give treatments at home.

Since the three treatments in the office and 3 to 4 treatments each week at home, her energy level and vigor for life have improved to a new level.

We as human beings are both a physical and energetic body. There are 12 well designated flows that occur throughout the body over every 24 hour period, healing and cleansing our organs and body. There are hundreds of other flows that circulate in various places in the body. Injury, emotional trauma, toxins and poor nutrition can block the energy flows.

The hands act like jumper cables in this art, permitting the energy to overcome blockages and permit healing to take place. Clearing these energy flow lines can help everybody with their health issues, and offers an excellent option for all who have vague or difficult to diagnose and treat issues. Fibromyalgia is caused by many, many different possible sources. It always has “a” cause or trigger, but is often the result of multiple issues over many years. Jin Shin Juytsu is one of many treatment options.

Reflexology and Other Energy Modalities

I’m wondering what you’re thoughts are about reflexology. Do you think this method is useful? Do you offer it in your clinic?

There are many energy connections manifested in various tissues in the body associated with the organs of the body.  This is the true of

  • the eye (iridology),
  • the outer ear (acupuncture points),
  • vertebrae in the spine (Jin Shin Jyutsu),
  • and bottoms of the feet (reflexology).

Stimulating points on the feet, spine or outer ear sends healing frequencies to the corresponding organ.  As the organ improves, the points on the feet (or elsewhere) also improve.

All of these techniques are useful, and are all part of energy medicine.

A number of energy medicine modalities are used at Keys to Healing Medical Center (my practice), including Jin Shin Jyutsu, Frequency Specific Microcurrent, NAET.  We currently do not offer reflexology, but are certainly not opposed to it.
