Jed Schwartz

Jed Schwartz is a health professional from Woodstock, New York. He also has a practice on the upper West side, Manhattan, New York. I met Jed when I began to study Jin Shin Jyutsu (JSJ) in 2015. Jed is a member of the faculty of theMary Burmeister Jin Shin Jyutsu Institutein Scottsdale, Arizona. As such, he teaches basic 5-day courses and special topics courses, such as a 3-day course on the spine. These classes are taught in many countries of the world, including cities throughout the United States.

Soon after I contracted a case of shingles, in February, 2015, I took a 5-day class with Jed in March. Because of the lingering effects of shingles, I decided to become a client of Jed’s, so that I could receive regular treatments from him, get suggestions about self-help activities in which I could engage, and learn from Jed (as a mentor), by being-in-with him for the years ahead.

In the 2-plus years in which I have received treatments from Jed, I have learned a great deal about JSJ, iridology, and naturopathy. In a typical one hour treatment from Jed, he reviews my uses of herbs and supplements he has recommended for me, he examines my irises and sclera to ascertain my progress on numerous wellness projects I am addressing (e.g.,harmonizing lymph system, eliminating candida), and I receive JSJ treatments based on his readings of my body, including pulses read from the wrists.

Based on what I have learned about complementary and integrative approaches to medicine/wellness, I commenced research in this area and established a business to research learning and wellness. Much of what I am doing in this regard has been inspired by Jed. A collection of my papers that have referenced wellness are included on this website at the Wellness tab.

Jedwent to the University of Maryland, College Park, in 1972. In 1977, he graduated from the School of Allied Health, majoring in Physical Therapy, with a specialization in Pediatrics. Jed worked from 1977 to 1978 in the Baltimore County Public Schools and then from 1978 to 1987 at Blythedale Children’s Hospital in Valhalla, NY. In 1981 he met Mary Burmeister and began studying Jin Shin Jyutsu. Jed became a practitioner of Jin Shin Jyutsu in 1984 and in order to commit to full time study and practice, in 1987, he discontinued his work in Physical Therapy. In 1995 Jed joined the faculty of Jin Shin Jyutsu Inc. in Scottsdale Arizona (now the Mary Burmeister Jin Shin Jyutsu Institute). Jed teaches JSJ classes in North and South America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and New Zealand. Jed began studying Iridology with Dr. Bernard Jensen in 1993 and continues studying Iridology with his Mentor.

Jed uses iridology, diet, and herbal supplements as constituents of a complementary approach to employ while educating and working with clients in a variety of contexts that include pre-and post-surgery. He emphasizes the importance of self-help as a component of maintaining good health.
