The Touch of Healing offers readers the means to greater health, vitality, and self-understanding through the practice of an ancient oriental healing art and practical holistic philosophy called Jin Shin Jystsu. Gentle touching similar to acupressure is used to release tension that accumulates and is at the root of dysfunction, disease, and imbalance. The authors explain the natural life force that runs through the body and demonstrate with case studies, detailed analysis, and more than 30 illustrations, how to integrate this system into one's life. The key healing points and body flows, known as "Safety Energy Locks," are presented with step-by-step instructions on how to utilize them for healing and greater self-awareness. Many self-help practices are also offered that address a wide array of common ailments, including headaches, digestive disorders, fatigue, depression, and arthritis along with prescriptive exercises for relief of emotional ailments such as loss of confidence, anxiety, and depression.

This book has changed my life. I was ill for months and all the tests the doctors ran came back with nothing wrong. I couldn't function and I was losing my life because of total, overwhelming fatigue. A friend came over and did some reflexology and she was just learning about Jin Shin Jyutsu. She tried some of it and recommended I get the book. It was the best thing I have ever ordered for my health. I am slowly getting my life back and I have helped many others along the way. This book has inspired me to take the 3 5 days classes so that I can begin practicing it as well!

this book is excellent---easy to understand--- i also took a class before reading it and i totally stand behind jin shin! instead of treating the symptoms (like todays medicine) this goes to the root in a natural way). lets heal ourselves!

If you are into energy flow and how simple touch can help stimulate healing, this book provides some simple steps to take. Whether you are suffering from physical ailment or depression, this book helps to show you how you can use touch to stimulate your body's own healing power. Is it a cure-all? I doubt it, but it definitely helps.

I bought this book after taking a class - it has become my daughter's bible, so to speak. It may be a bit challenging to understand if you have not had a class, but this stuff really works. My daughter has suffered for years from a variety of chronic illnesses and I see a marked difference since she diligently began practicing this ancient art.
