Embrace the power of healing hands. We all know how good a massage feels, and how important touch is to provide calming, healing energy. But did you know there is a simple way that you can work with your own hands to help heal yourself?
I’m always so amazed to learn and experience the benefits of the mind body connection. There are many, many different modalities and techniques out there. In India when they work with healing hands it’s thru Mudras. But this simple hand exercises to balance energy and emotions is from the ancient Japanese form of touch therapy called Jin Shin Jyutsu.

Our emotions are intertwined with the health and well-being of our mind and body. This simple Jin Shin Jyutsu technique can be done anywhere. You can work on one specific area, or do a whole-body balance by working through all of the fingers on both hands.
