Finger Flows For Love, Reproduction, and Warm Hands

Finger FlowsEach Jin Shin Jyutsu® (JSJ) acupressure flow travels in a distinctive pattern within the body. Wherever a flow traverses, it brings healing. In fact, the Organ Function Energy flows fall into categories based on their circulation patterns: chest, face, finger, and toe. The Finger Flows (Large Intestine, Small Intestine, and Umbilicus) support pure unconditional love, renewing, and the reproductive system. They also correlate to the astrological earth signs Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn.

I remember my grandmother’s swollen, purple, frigid fingers. My father inherited his mother’s hand circulation although to a lesser degree. My hands tend toward coldness as well. I often apologized to my clients before I read their JSJ wrist pulses with my cold fingers, particularly in winter. Recently I discovered applying the Finger Flow self-helps warmed my hands. Large Intestine, Small Intestine, and Umbilicus travel through the index, pinkie, and ring fingers, respectively. To reach the fingers each flow passes through the arms and hands so those areas receive support as well.

All three Finger Flows also pass through Safety Energy Lock (SEL) 13, a key reproductive system harmonizer. This SEL helps with menstruation and PMS, pregnancy and fetuses, sexual desire and function, and sperm count. SEL 13 also connects you to spirit, harmonizing your deepest knowing and awareness. Plus it supports having no enemies, including yourself. In other words, pure unconditional love arises there.

The JSJ flow pathways and resulting harmony remind me again of the complexity and interconnectivity within each of us. Before my JSJ training I would never have connected love, renewal, reproduction, spirituality, and warm hands! My awe grows when I consider how each person’s harmony or disharmony energetically reaches the rest of humanity. I expand my perception and heart further when I add all the other species on the planet to this interconnectivity map.

Any recent sparks of awareness for you? If you play with the JSJ Finger Flows, I’d love to hear how it goes.





    • Hi Joanne,
      Thanks for your comment. I fear I may have misled you with my post and my image. The “finger flow” self-helps described here each require holding two points on the body, not just the fingers. For Large Intestine it’s SEL 11 plus the index finger, for Small Intestine it’s SEL 11 plus SEL 13, and for Umbilicus it’s 19 plus 20. You can view the exact combinations here: Organ Function Self-Helps I hope this clarifies things! 🙂
      All the best,
