Jin Shin Jyutsu® (JSJ) Japanese acupressure relies heavily on numbers, especially with the twenty-six numbered Safety Energy Locks (SELs).  As seen in the table below, SELs 1 through 9 support your physical body, 10 through 18 harmonize your mental body, and 19 through 26 aid your spiritual body.  The complexity of JSJ makes it hard to carry the generalization too far, however, since SEL 10 helps knees and SEL 26 supports releasing accumulations such as tumors and cysts, for example.

Each SEL in a given column corresponds to the base number in the first row of that column.  In other words SEL 1, 10, and 19 all share the base number 1 and so on.  In my last blog post, I discussed the physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of SELs 2, 11, and 20 which share a base number of 2.

Some time ago I wrote a “Safety Energy Lock Prayer” which may give you insight into the character of each SEL as well as the connection between the points sharing a base number.  You read the prayer from 1 through 26 but the format here reflects the shared base numbers in each row.

Do any Safety Energy Locks speak to you? Right now I spend a lot of time with my friend SEL 14 which supports nourishment of all kinds.

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!
