Main Central Vertical Flow

 

The Main Central Vertical is thought to activate and energize the deepest center and core of our body and our being.  As such energetic change proceeds from this inner center out to the more surface layers of the body mind where symptoms manifest.  It is centering, grounding, vitalizing, nourishing, organizing, and integrating.  

 

According to Mary Burmeister, the Japanese teacher who brought Jin Shin Jyutsu to the West, the original poetic Japanese meaning of this treatment, translated into English is “I am the Divine Presence in the Honorific Center of the Universe”. That should clue one into the essence and importance of this treatment.
