Jin Shin Jyutsu JSJ con Virginia


In love with my family and friends, traveling, the sea, dream beaches, books and Jin Shin Jyutsu.

Jin Shin Jyutsu has helped make my life better than I ever could have imagined.

My story with JSJ began the day my husband was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and a good friend who is 81 years old today and has more vitality than many at 50, told me: Virginia, this book can help your husband.


From the first minute I felt very attracted by this Physio-Philosophy and especially by the way in which a JSJ instructor (Wayne Hackett) explained it and talked about this art.


I was amazed at how without much knowledge of what I was doing and simply doing the exercises detailed in The Touch of Healing book on a daily basis, I noticed the positive results in myself and opted for an online self-help class where I specifically asked what I could do to help my husband with his condition.


I was fascinated by the improvement and wanted to know more. So when Wayne Hackett came from Hawaii to Munich to give a JSJ course, I didn't hesitate to attend.


The third day there was a kind of raffle where I won a session by Wayne where he would explain to the whole class. And that's all I needed to realize that this Art is what I've always been looking for.

I cannot express in words how good and happy I felt when I got up from that stretcher. If I put words to it, I limit it.


I wanted to know more and learn how to help other people the way Wayne Hackett helped me.

Jin Shin Jyutsu became my purpose.


And so it was that a few days later I left my job as an analyst in a bank in Edinburgh and since then I have dedicated myself to studying, practicing, teaching and spread this wonderful Art.


To everyone's surprise, it was during this time that my husband's illness had already subsided and he is even better today than before.


Another of the great gifts that Jin Shin Jyutsu has brought to my life is the opportunity to do my second course with Wayne Hackett on the Island of Kauai (Hawaii), where he currently has his home.

​Since then I have continued to study with Wayne Hackett and other instructors such as Carlos Gutterres, Sara Harper, Anita Willoughby, Waltraud Riegger-Krause, Philomena Dooley, Carlyse Smyth, Jill Pasquinelli and Alexis Brink. ​

​And currently I also complement my study of Jin Shin Jyutsu with the study of Transpersonal Therapy because I think it is important that my clients feel seen and heard.

I am very grateful to Jiro Murai, to Mary Burmeister, to all the instructors, practitioners and those who are committed to sharing the Art of Jin Shin so that more and more people know it and can benefit from it and we all make a happier and healthy world.

With love and gratitude.
