Each Finger Is Linked To 2 Organs

The Jin Shin Jyutsu is an ancient art of Japanese origin that uses touch to harmonize the vital energy of the body. Jin Shin Jyutsu means "The Art of the Creator through the Man of Knowledge and Compassion".

The Japanese make use of this practice of alternative medicine which relies on the idea that each finger of the hand is connected to 2 organs of the body. This ancestral art is a belief that the fingers keep our body in balance, so the energy of the body could be sustained by the stimulation of some essential points of the fingers. When these are stimulated, each point opens a chain of energy to the organ concerned, hence the function of the organ is improved and general health strengthened.

Similar to acupuncture, this method involves applying pressure to specific areas of the body. Some opt for the method of Jin Shin Jyutsu, others for a different acupuncture, but for both, it focuses on the fingers and toes.

It is important to also know that each organ is linked to an emotion. For example, a disturbed liver generates a feeling of anger, a person subjected to a situation of aggression, frustration that makes him angry, will see his liver disrupted. This double relationship has been taught for millennia by the Japanese.
