This Certificate course is intended to provide a depth of study in the theory and practice of Jin Shin Acutouch. This path will prepare Asian Healing Arts massage therapists to practice in a clinical setting with techniques specific for treatment of chronic conditions and other types of physical and psychological problems. These approaches are appropriate for working closely with the Western medical model and its relationship to Asian energetic healing models, such as acupuncture. This training provides the therapist with a clear understanding of the energetic paradigm and the ability to interact with professionals in health care environments.
Jin Shin Acutouch is a sacred healing art that was rediscovered in the Shinto Temples of Japan by Master Jiro Murai in 1912. It is considered the “Mother of All Healing Arts” and is thought to be the forerunner of all natural healing arts and folk medicine. This Art was buried in the Shinto temples of Japan in an effort to keep the treasured knowledge secret and intact. The method of Jin Shin Acutouch uncovers life’s mysteries and soothes the mind, body, emotions, and spirit. The purpose of this gentle healing touch is to use the energy anatomy of the body to activate the body’s own healing response, restoring it to balance and health.
