Every physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual disharmony arises from either an inhale or exhale issue or both according to the ancient healing art of Jin Shin Jyutsu®.  Harmony occurs when the balance of inhale and exhale is “just right,”  like Goldilocks finding her perfect bed.  Maintaining your inhale-exhale balance supports on-going health.

When you don’t exhale adequately, you don’t remove enough and can accumulate toxins.  Think of a hoarder who can’t let go of material possessions, sometimes to the point where accumulated garbage threatens their health.  Likewise you don’t want food to linger in your digestive system nor do you want to hold on to criticisms or worries.  Exhaling is all about letting go and unfortunately many of us are in the habit of holding our breath whether we’re conscious of it or not.

If you can’t inhale sufficiently, you don’t receive enough and get depleted.  Think of a mountain climber attempting to summit Mount Everest without an oxygen tank, how every system of the body starts shutting down when oxygen-deprived.  Other forms of inhaling or receiving are taking in compliments, providing your body the diverse nutrients needed for optimum health, and allowing down time.

When you exhale, visualize exhaling down to your big toes.  Notice how this creates space in your body.  When you inhale, allow air to expand your abdomen fully.  Notice how this makes you feel expanded and filled.

Based on the JSJ model, you inhale up the back of your body and exhale down the front.  The Safety Energy Locks on the front of the body help you exhale and the ones on the back help you inhale.  Safety Energy Lock (SEL) 1 is the most supportive for exhaling, 2 for inhaling, and 3 for both inhaling and exhaling.  You can gently hold the points for thirty-six out-breaths and in-breaths, for a fixed length of time, or until it feels “done.” Safety Energy Lock Diagram

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!
