About Matthew

From my first introduction to Jin Shin Jyutsu I was eager to learn more. Jin Shin Jyutsu is a practice that helps to harmonize and balance the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of our lives. Growing up in a large house hold I believe I was always searching for myself and looking for who I was and what path my life was supposed to take. Studying Jin Shin Jyutsu helped me to find my balance and become the person I was meant to be as I was always drawn to helping others.

In my mid 20's I began to learn Jin Shin Jyutsu from my mentor Brenda Hanson, she was a great resource for me and I was fortunate to spend a lot of time learning from her prior to her retirement. I really related to her teachings and I learned so much about myself through her. In 2008 I started Jin Shin Jyutsu classes and became a practitioner. I have also taken training in Psychosomatic therapy, a therapeutic process to help resolve trauma and increase resilience to life's difficulties. This approach helps to liberate one from physical or psychological symptoms of stress, pain, shock and trauma.

Through this process I learned that I am what is called an intuitive empath, which means I feel other people's pain and emotions. It was a relief to understand why throughout my life I was feeling others' pain around me. Imagine if you can having a headache whenever your mother has one, limping around the house when you brother breaks his leg or your shoulders and back aching every time your dad comes home from his job doing manual labor. I have now learned that I can use this knowledge of other people's aches and pains in combination with the healing art of Jin Shin Jyutsu to know where to apply my treatments and ease my clients suffering.

In my earlier years I had also discovered I was sensitive to nonphysical or supernatural forces and influences. Some may refer to this as having psychic abilities. Now, I don't do psychic readings but I am very intuitive and use this ability to help my clients rid themselves of unwanted spirits which can cause all sorts of physical ailments including digestive issues, brain-fog or difficulty making decisions, dizziness and balance issues. I do offer space clearings, which helps to rid my clients' homes of negative spirits I also cleanse the space afterward through the use of smudging.
