Skills for Life | Self Help | Part One Two Three

How Does This Self Help Course Work?

This is a LIVE course presented online by Astrid Kauffmann to groups. We meet up on Zoom for two hours each week over three weeks. In each of the two hour segments I cover theory and we practice the exercises. 

This online course is based on the material in Self Help Books 1, 2 and 3 by Mary Burmeister.

What will I learn in Part One of this course?


  • how energy works and how Jin Shin Jyutsu fits into that
  • why and how Jin Shin Jyutsu works when you use your hands
  • why everything is in the fingers! 
  • how to harmonize mind, body and spirit using the three main energy pathways that feed all 144,000 of our energy functions
  • how to use some powerful daily 'cleaners' to release tensions
  • how to practice this Art as Self Help
  • how to experience Jin Shin Jyutsu through practical exercises

What will I learn in Part Two of this course?


  • what they are and their names
  • where they are located on the body
  • who they are: their meaning and function
  • how to use each one of them to clear every day ailments, re-energize the body, manage pain/discomfort, calm the mind and balance emotions
  • practical exercises to recharge all 26 of our 'friends'

What will I learn in Part Three of this course? 


  • how the Hands, Palms and Fingers are related to Feet, Toes and Soles
  • how to understand and use hands and feet to harmonize 
  • understand the specific  relationships of hands and feet to the rest of the body
  • the meaning and practice of eight dynamic and powerful finger positions given to us by Master Jiro Murai 

How will I benefit from these courses?

  • have a deeper understanding of Jin Shin Jyutsu as an Art of harmonizing the life energy in the body
  • know how to use your hands as 'jumper cables' to help yourself and your loved ones

Who is Astrid Kauffmann? 

Since 2001, I must have clocked up tens of thousands of hours in the study and practice of Jin Shin Jyutsu. 

I have also taught hundreds of students in offline classroom settings over the last 20 years. From their own feedback, often inspiring them to study and practice further.

Ever since those early days when I used a couple of simple hand positions to stop a migraine, to the awareness of MYSELF today, Jin Shin Jyutsu IS now as fundamental to me as breathing.

I LOVE this ART and I love sharing it with others.

What People Are Saying:

Learning JSJ self help in such an easy, relaxed way, in an environment of like-minded people and with Astrid's humorous and enthusiastic way of teaching was a big pleasure for me. The lectures were so well prepared and documented that it was easy to follow. The practical part was very powerful even if it was online. Astrid always supported us in any possible way and patiently she answered all our questions. I got a lot out of this course, I can only recommend it to others.

I have attended 'Skills for Life' Self Help Parts 1 and 2 with Astrid. I really enjoyed each class. They were small groups, informal and friendly. Astrid guided us through the sessions so that we gained the maximum benefit of our time with her. At the end of each, I left feeling relaxed yet energised.

Your gift of teaching has greatly improved my life and it appears the lives of so many others. Thank you.


I attended 'Skills for Life' Self Help Parts 1 and 2 with Astrid in 2019 and they were an amazing experience. Astrid is so knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Jin Shin Jyutsu, and the time flew by. She has a wealth of experience that she shared with us. The days were divided into sections on both the background and theory of Jin Shin Jyutsu and practice of the Art. The class had such a lovely, positive energy and the exercises were amazing. I am looking forward to Part 3 now. I can't recommend this highly enough!
