A side effect of many illnesses is pain.

Pain can deplete the body’s energy and diminish the effectiveness of the immune system.

Much time and many millions of dollars has been invested in providing relief for these folks.

But, is there a simpler, better way? Jin Shin Jyutsu, an ancient form of acupressure, is just one method.

This alternative method is being studied relative to its effect on cancer.

A trained practitioner holds one or more of 52 points on the hand.

The person listens for, or feels, the patient’s energy flowing through their body.

Once they feel the energy, they hold that point of the body until they feel it relax.

The goal is to open the energy’s pathways.

Blockage can cause pain and other negative effects.

Folks who have undergone this treatment report an increase in their ability to cope.
