- Mary Burmeister -
Mary Burmeister (1918 – 2008) is credited with bringing Jin Shin Jyutsu to the West in the 1950s. Her painstaking apprenticeship with Jiro Murai and her ensuing research resulted in broad dissemination of this life-changing Art. Thanks to Mary, thousands of students worldwide have been exposed to the theoretical and practical basis of Jin Shin Jyutsu.
Mary practiced what she taught, leaving behind abundant testimonials of how she lived the smile that she encouraged others to “Be”. Her office was always busy with her clientele from all corners of the globe, and she worked long hours helping to harmonize those who came to see her.
