The thumbs and little toes are often the most sensitive digits to jumper-cable according to the teaching guidebook ‘The Touch of Healing’ by Alice Burmeister with Tom Monte.  We continue to explore Jin Shin Jyutsu® jumper-cabling technique called the thumb and little toe sequence.

These thumb & little toe sequences can be used whenever you find yourself thinking or experiencing any of the following: 1. I’m out of balance. 2. I feel nervous. 3. I have muscle spasms. 4. I tire easily. 5.I have a fever. 6. I have a hard time breathing. 7. My digestive system is out of balance. 8. I feel mentally stressed. (Practice this technique as shown in illustrations for 1-2 minutes using either left or right hand and foot or both.)
