1. I started taking JSJ classes in2003. Two years later I was diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, I had terrible abdominal pain and need to purge many times when I had the attack. During the attack, I would curled out side the toilet groaning in pain. After a few attacks, I was determined to heal myself. After flipping through the Jsj text book, I came across a page that would help address the issue. I diligently hold SEL 11 & 25 for two months and that was the cure since.
2. During my regular check up, my gynae found a cyst in my uterus 4 year ago. I was told to go back to her in 2 months times. Again I was determined to get rid of it before the next appointment. I hold the SEL low 8 & 16 and did kidney flow everyday. Amazingly, the next check up, THE CYST WAS GONE!
JSJ is a wonderful modality as it can help others as well as yourself.

I have been an avid sports person since young. Pain and injuries are a part of my life. I often seek treatment from TCM ( sinsehs ). The relief is merely temporary. I was introduced to JSJ and have applied what I have learned to ease those discomfort. Many sports enthusiast strife to perfect themselves through the theory of this slogan -’No Pain No Gain’. I have benefited much from JSJ . The pain is gone and I have gained a valuable knowledge to NOW KNOW MYSELF .

The use of 2 allopathic drugs I had strong reactions to in late 2008 resulted in a rare condition called Oromandibular Dystonia.
This condition rendered me unable to speak or chew. The brain’s movement center was in a heightened state and my body’s flight and fight response was switched on 24/7 and soon, my entire body tightened up.
I went down the path of Botox in desperation but that only made things worse over time. I tried every therapy available in Singapore – from acupuncture to Manual lymphatic drainage while pursuing 7 of the top neurologists for a cure.
Every single time, therapists would give the caveat “We’ll try, but it’s something we’ve never seen”. This of course was miles ahead of what doctors said “There’s no cure”. In fact, 2 even insisted I see a psychiatrist because they were convinced it was all in my mind.
The psychiatrist passed me with flying colours.
Hope seemed to be running out.
One day, as if by the will of God, I walked into a Chiropractor’s office and saw Kathy Dunderdale’s brochure sitting on his desk.
Everything about Jin Shin Jyutsu seemed to resonate with me, and with whatever determination I could muster, I went for sessions with her.
It started with 3 weeks twice a day and it brought a new ease which I had never felt. Still, I wasn’t cured.
Kathy went on vacation after our first set of treatments and she referred me to Angeline Gwee.
My sessions with her were thrice a week when I started. We worked on organs, number flows, special flows and I supplemented this with Chiropractic treatments.
My dystonia of the jaw remained, but other things like allergies, headaches, tightness began to clear up over time.
Months passed and Angeline worked with me tirelessly. Listening to my body and working out a strategy that would balance the organs and my entire system.
On my part, I fell head over heels with Jin Shin Jyutsu and began doing self help several times a day every single day.
The 4th year anniversary of my dystonia is round the corner.
I don’t celebrate it, but what I do celebrate is how far I’ve come with no medication. I have gotten 60% of my speech and chewing back and have wellness better than before I got inflicted with dystonia.
My quality of life is better and I am more myself now than I have ever been.
I now see Angeline once in 3 weeks or when necessary and can manage with self help – and still see improvements to my condition month to month.
Jin Shin Jyutsu is the best thing that’s happened and I hope those with chronic conditions will find their path to the work and immerse themselves in it. The benefits are immense and amazing.
I could write a novel on the milestones and breakthroughs, but in essence, I want to thank God for Jiro Murai, for Mary Burmeister who spread the work, for Kathy Dunderdale who took me on despite the condition I was in and for Angeline Gwee who’s become more than a practitioner – a friend.
Jin Shin Jyutsu has given me back much of my life and in most respects made it very much better to live – even if there’s a chronic condition strapped on to my being.
Of course, looking at the way things are going, in time, I am confident even that chronic condition shall pass.
