At Sanctuary Island Therapies we offer one main therapy.

Jin Shin Jyutsu® (JSJ).


Jin Shin Jyutsu®Physio-Philosophy

Jin Shin Jyutsu®, is an ancient Japanese Healing Art,  When literally translated the name means "The art of the creator through the person of compassion".  The secrets of this art were almost lost forever until it was rediscovered by Master Jiro Murai in the early 1900's in Japan when he was diagnosed with a terminal illness.  He remembered his own Grandfather and the elders from his village practising this healing art and began working on himself.  He made a complete recovery and devoted the rest of his life to identifying energy paths through the skeleton and organs of the body, discovering the Safety Energy Locks and developing "flows" which would release blockages in the body that were causing the person discomfort, pain and dis-ease.  He passed on his learnings to Mary Burmeister and she in turn brought it to America and the rest of the world. Through Jin Shin Jyutsu our awareness is awakened to the simple fact that we are endowed with the ability to harmonise and balance ourselves (in rhythm with the universe) physically, mentally and spiritually.

The client is fully dressed and lies on a treatment table.  The treatment is applied by the practitioner lightly holding several specific "Safety Energy Locks" on the body.  This treatment is ideal for physical ailments,  mental and emotional stresses.


While i am a fully qualified Master Instructor of Integrated Energy Therapy i prefer to concentrate my focus on Jin Shin Jyutsu as a treatment.  Having experienced both therapies, i incorporate the wonderful ethos of Integrated Energy Therapy into every Jin Shin Jyutsu treatment therefore giving the client the benifit of both therapies at the same time.



Body Projects explained:

Life can create blocks in our energy field through trauma or crisis, surgery or grief, disease, stress and fear, meaning what may have started as an emotional issue results in a physical ailment, likewise physical ailments can have a longterm psychological effect.


Energy Therapy uses specific points on the energy lines in the body to stimulate energy and clear those blocks. This serves to rebalance the energy of the body’s cellular memory.  Treatment supports the body’s natural ability to establish and maintain proper balance, therby allowing the body to heal itself.

During treatment energy blocks are released in the body thus releasing the negative emotions blocking the client from moving forward in life, this enables the client to heal old issues, memories and trauma’s aswell as physical projects. Therapy is clearing blocked energy therby aiding the body to heal, restore and create balance.  Energy therapy is akin to counselling without talking.



Please note we also have a visiting therapist who specialises in Reflexology.  

The ancient art of reflexology accesses the nerve endings in the feet which are linked to every organ and system of the body. Through skillful manipulation a reflexologist can help to unblock the flow of energy in organs and rebalance entire systems.  Please contact us to arrange an appointment.
