Finger Flows For Love, Reproduction, and Warm Hands

Each Jin Shin Jyutsu® (JSJ) acupressure flow travels in a distinctive pattern within the body. Wherever a flow traverses, it brings healing. In fact, the Organ Function Energy flows fall into categories based on their circulation patterns: chest, face, finger, and toe. The Finger Flows (Large Intestine, Small Intestine, and Umbilicus) support pure unconditional love, renewing, and the reproductive system. They also correlate to the astrological earth signs Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn.

I remember my grandmother’s swollen, purple, frigid fingers. My father inherited his mother’s hand circulation although to a lesser degree. My hands tend toward coldness as well. I often apologized to my clients before I read their JSJ wrist pulses with my cold fingers, particularly in winter. Recently I discovered applying the Finger Flow self-helps warmed my hands. Large Intestine, Small Intestine, and Umbilicus travel through the index, pinkie, and ring fingers, respectively. To reach the fingers each flow passes through the arms and hands so those areas receive support as well.

All three Finger Flows also pass through Safety Energy Lock (SEL) 13, a key reproductive system harmonizer. This SEL helps with menstruation and PMS, pregnancy and fetuses, sexual desire and function, and sperm count. SEL 13 also connects you to spirit, harmonizing your deepest knowing and awareness. Plus it supports having no enemies, including yourself. In other words, pure unconditional love arises there.

The JSJ flow pathways and resulting harmony remind me again of the complexity and interconnectivity within each of us. Before my JSJ training I would never have connected love, renewal, reproduction, spirituality, and warm hands! My awe grows when I consider how each person’s harmony or disharmony energetically reaches the rest of humanity. I expand my perception and heart further when I add all the other species on the planet to this interconnectivity map.

Any recent sparks of awareness for you? If you play with the JSJ Finger Flows, I’d love to hear how it goes.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does a typical Energy Quartet session go?

We open with a 45 minute or so Akashic Records consultation. The revealed themes, patterns, and disharmonies drive the table work in conjunction with your "pulses," body reading, and my intuitive insights. A follow-up e-mail documents what occurs during the energy work and includes customized self-helps.

What should I wear to receive table work?

In this work, you remain fully clothed. Just wear whatever will feel comfortable while lying on my massage table. If it's a remote session, I'll ask you to rest while I send energy.

How do I prepare for a session?

Please consider the personal or interpersonal disharmony that led you to me and how you would like it to shift. During the session, we'll explore and address the origins and drivers of each "project."

Are the Akashic Records predictive?

No, the records aren’t a good resource for predictions. If there’s something you hope will happen, the records might reveal a series of necessary steps to reach your desired outcome but not the timing. For predictions, please consult a good psychic or astrologer!

Why can't children receive Akashic Records consultations?

Minors are under their parents' legal and energetic jurisdiction until they are 18, regardless of their maturity level.


The greatest benefit occurs when I incorporate all four modalities I practice. The option without the Akashic Records is appropriate for children under 18 who cannot receive readings. A stand-alone reading can bring insight and healing but does not involve my direct interaction with your energetic and physical bodies like my other practices.

Do you record Akashic Records consultations?

No, but you are welcome to record sessions yourself.

Why do self-helps?

Self-helps, both from Jin Shin Jyutsu and the Embodied Energy System, support your continued harmony, accelerate your evolution, and empower you. Plus they make you sparkly!
