Reduce Fatigue, Tension, & Stress

I am sure most of us have experienced that nagging tightness and discomfort at the top of either or both sides of our back.  These spots are near the spine and beginning of shoulder blade caused by energy blocks.  Jin Shin Jyutsu®, (The Touch of Healing, by Alice Burmeister with Tom Monte) refers to these points as SEL #11, which stands for Safety Energy Locks.  You can practice this simple exercise using Jin Shin Jyutsu®  to reduce fatigue, tension, and stress.  It is called Harmonizing The Mediator Flows.   This practice helps bring harmony and balance to your body.  Many find it calming and use it to fall asleep, while others use it to invigorate themselves upon awakening.  For optimum results, you can use this daily, whenever needed for a couple of minutes on each side.  If you spend a great deal of time at the computer, it is a No-brainer….try it!
