In Jin Shin Jyutsu® (JSJ) Japanese acupressure, telltale signs such as the shapes and orientation of your fingers and toes, how your feet rotate when you lie resting, and even your skin tone reveal details about where you could benefit from improved harmony.  Your body also tells a story through its audible releases, which I call your “body broadcasts,” another indicator of disharmony particularly if the frequency or intensity of the releases becomes problematic.

As a child I got hiccups so often my parents took me to the doctor to see if he could figure out what ailed me but we learned nothing from it.  Many years later I realized what I ate and drank, including lots of carbonated beverages, contributed to the problem.  Even with dietary changes, I find myself with occasional hiccuping spells but now I address them with JSJ self-helps.  Below you’ll find a table showing which self-helps, primarily organ function energy ones, harmonize various forms of body broadcasts.  For hiccups, I find accessing the lateral 12s while pinching my nose closed and holding my breath effective.

Organ Functions Diagram)

  • Burps                 Gallbladder
  • Coughs              Lung
  • Passing Gas      Gallbladder, Liver
  • Hiccups             Spleen, Diaphragm, behind the earlobes at lateral Safety Energy Lock 12
  • Sighs                 Gallbladder
  • Sneezes            Kidney
  • Yawns               Spleen

Gallbladder and Liver Organ Function energies relate to gas production and disorders in the body.  Both connect to anger, characterized in JSJ as the fear of not getting what you want, which could cause sighing, a release via exhaling.  Gallbladder provides the stronger harmonizer for sighing as the exhaling organ function flow versus the Liver inhaling one.  The Spleen organ function self-help harmonizes digestion as well as fatigue. The Kidney organ function flow passes through the lung, throat, and nose.  In addition to sneezes, Kidney organ function helps harmonize fevers and immune issues.

Have you ever considered your “broadcasts” as indicators of your health and harmony?  If you play with the self-helps described here, I’d love to hear how it goes for you.

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!
