I began my formal studies of Jin Shin Jyutsu when I took a 5-day class with Ian Harris at a hospital in Morristown, NJ. Since then I have taken 5-day classes at regular intervals with Sara Harper (State College, PA), Cynthia Broshi (Woodstock, NY), Jill Pasquinelli (New York, NY), Jed Schwartz (Morristown and New York), Sadaki Kato (Ashville, NC), and Wautraud Riegger-Krausse (New York, NY). In additon I have gone to Santa Barbara, CA to take a “Now Know Myself” class with Cynthia Broshi and Jill Pasquinelli and a Special Topics class with Anita Willoughby.

Since 2015 I have received regular treatment from Jed Schwartz at his office in New York City. Although his principle modality is Jin Shin Jyutsu, he also uses iridology and naturopathy to read the body and recommend herbs and supplements along with dietary changes to foster and sustain wellness. IN so doing, Jed has served as a wise and highly skilled mentor from whom I am learning a great deal.
