Welcome to Konadu Health & Wellness, where I help people transform the way they live in their body through the power of touch. As a licensed massage therapist, I’m specialized in the Art of Jin Shin and John F.

Corinna Hagen
Jin Shin Practitioner & Self Help teacher
Carrer Nou, Jávea 33 03730, Spain

Sessions & self-help courses held in English, German and Spanish When I was a teenager, I always dreamt of living in a sunny village, surrounded by animals, close to the sea and working with people with different nationalities. So, I moved to the coast of sunny Spain and became a freelance translator (German/English/Spanish) and language teacher. I really loved my job, but 20 years of working until morning hours and with deadline pressure combined with childcare and housework stole nearly all my energy. That was in 2008, when I suffered from a Burn Out Syndrome and was introduced to Jin ShIn Jyutsu. This gentle art saved and changed my life dramatically. It not only brought my energy back, but also harmonized my digestion, enhanced my spirituality, and contacted me with many wonderful people (and animals) from all over the world. It was so amazing, that I decided to learn more about it and could not stop reading and taking courses… Now, as a qualified teacher of JSJ (since 2012), I really enjoy sharing my knowledge and experiences by offering sessions for humans and animals as well as self-help courses for everybody, who wants to feel better, harmonize body, mind & soul and aspire an effortless reality.

Donna Dawson
Jin Shin Jyutsu Practitioner
14 Leigh Road Eastleigh, Hampshire, United Kingdom

I have been working with Jin Shin Jyutsu for over 10 years and was very fortunate to be encouraged and mentored by Editha Campbell who took her training with Mary Burmeister in the early 80’s and brought trainers over from Scottsdale to the United Kingdom as one of the first organizers of this wonderful art. Working with her led me to training and taking 8 x 5 day seminars to become a Jin Shin Jyutsu® Practitioner. I have experienced first hand how Jin Shin Jyutsu was able to free up my energy (meridian) lines and open me up to my body, my grief at the loss of my dear mother and to my capacity to self heal.

As a personal testament, I have moved through my own illness of Lupus, and have now been in remission for many years. It gives me great joy and strength when I can share my knowledge, understanding and skills to my clients, to aid them on their own journeys to recovery or acceptance - to be ourselves, to know ourselves and to help ourselves. My professional practice has gone from strength to strength along with my great passion for Jin Shin Jyutsu (a gentle acupressure/safety energy locks work) and EFT (emotional freedom technique - Tapping on the meridian/energy lines) I also work with the wonderful reflexology and aromatherapy massage techniques and I am a Reiki Master/teacher.

I specialize in energy therapies working in a person centered way along the body's meridian lines, or safety energy locations - clearing any blockages caused by stress, anxiety, low self-esteem, work pressures, pain in the body, past histories, belief systems and confidence. I look forward to being part of the JSI family and working with anyone who would like to explore this wonderful Art.

Cynthia Gianni
Jin Shin Jyutsu Practitioner Amsterdam
The Netherlands

Our hands are magical, that is what I have always believed in. In 2016 I was searching for mudras on the internet and it was then that I discovered The Art of Jin Shin. 

The Art of Jin Shin has a profound meaning for me because it connects all important aspects of life: 

Philosophically: I always believed that body mind and spirit are universally connected and The Art of Jin Shin showed me all these connections.

Spiritually it has handed me all the tools to deal with the challenges of life, also giving me strength and peace.

And physically it gives me the answers to ‘labels’ I encounter in others as well as in myself.

I love doing the sessions and seeing how many different (and of course endless!) ways there are to treat someone.

The Art of Jin Shin gives me the opportunity to work with all these levels and to develop the consciousness to handle all aspects that life offers.

I began studying Jin Shin Jyutsu in the early 70’s. In the 1980’s I was very excited to take the first self help instructors class and loved sharing self help with my clients. Studying with many JSJ instructors over the years, has opened me to studying astrology for many years as well. Understanding our current environment can certainly help us with our challenges and combine that with the wealth of information for healing Jin Shin Jyutsu offers is perfect for navigating our life. I’ve had a private practice and worked in a professional environment. My other loves besides my children and grand children are two non profit projects Shumway Ranch. Org and New Vision Theatre.
