Sunday, March 06, 2011Dear Beth,
I am really enjoying your newletter.
Funny thing... I have suffered for a long time from what I think may
be carpal tunnel syndrome. It doesn't always bother me, but when I
start doing repetitive motions with my arm/wrist, I suffer for many
weeks afterward. Lately, I have been painting, scrubbing, shoveling
snow. I wake up each morning with a dead hand. I had been massaging,
rubbing, shaking my hand to get the circulation going again. This often
just made my hand hurt more and wouldn't always get the blood moving
again. Often, I just had to get out of bed and start my day to make my
hand functional again.
But, since reading your newletter, I have
started just holding my wrist (no shaking, massaging, etc) within
seconds, the circulation is back and it feels fine.
Thanks so much for the idea. Sally
have discovered the simplicity of Jin Shin Jyutsu. When something
hurts, HOLD it. As hand touches hurt, energy spirals from skin surface
to bone and back again. This process of spiraling energy continues from suface to core while
the hand touches the body. This clears stagnation and cleans up the
energetic pathways throughout the area. In my experience, this method of
holding something that hurts often relieves the pain faster than a
