Welcome To Jin Shin Jyutsu

Jin Shin Jyutsu® physio-philosophy is an ancient art of harmonizing the life energy in the body. Born of innate wisdom and passed down from generation to generation by word of mouth, the Art had fallen into relative obscurity when it was dramatically revived in the early 1900's by Master Jiro Murai in Japan.

After clearing himself of a life-threatening illness, Master Murai devoted the rest of his life to the research and development of Jin Shin Jyutsu, gathering insight from a range of experiences and resources, including the Kojiki (Record of Ancient Things). The resulting knowledge of Jin Shin Jyutsu was then given to Mary Burmeister, who brought it to the United States in the 1950's.

Mary Burmeister began teaching the Art to others in the early 1960's, and today there are thousands of students throughout the United States and around the world. Read More

Jin Shin Jyutsu News



As many of you remember, the office here in Scottsdale was always a busy hive of activity with clients who had come to receive sessions with Mary Burmeister and her long time colleague Patricia Meador. It was always wonderful to watch the transformations of the people who had come for a full week of sessions, receiving either one or two per day. And to see the relaxed smiles of those who had experienced these intensives as they left on Friday afternoon, already looking forward to their week the following year. Many of the locals also came for their regular sessions, weekly or monthly.

These days, Pat, and the members of the office staff, Terry Matthews, Karen Moore and Felicity Peniston continue to see clients. And recently, Ian Harris, who has been a JSJ instructor since 2000, has returned to Scottsdale after eleven years of teaching classes and treating clients in Germany. He is now also available to treat clients full time here in the office. For those of you who are interested in coming to Scottsdale to receive an intensive please contact us for further information.

Terry Matthews will be teaching a Self help Class on the weekend March 29-30, 2014.  Please click on the following link  For further information please contact Terry on 602 750 4707,
