So, is it Third Method Correction or Third Method OF Correction?
Everybody calls those Methods of Correction, but the Textbook 1, pages 55 – 57, clearly don’t contain the preposition. Numerically Third Method resonates with 1 (32 + 29 + 57 = 118). And it does make sense to me that we have three different Corrections for different situations, rather than three methods of one correction.
The experience of each one of the Methods, Jiro Murai is quoted to have said, could reverse life-long conditions. They are powerful. They are versatile. And each one serves its purpose to the fullest.
For anything emotional, use the First Method. For anything physical and structural, the Second Method is what you need. And, when you need to work on your mind, use the Third Method.
Between Heaven and Earth, Man stands in the middle. The Third Method helps congestions in the middle, Waist line. It helps the Mediator restore its relationship to the Main Central Vertical Energy, and can clear up mental disharmony. The Third Method is what you reach for when you need release from your mental prison. It helps the mind to clear up, to change and become more open to accept healing.
The Emergency Room
The Third Method is always good in emergency situations as a self-help while waiting for other help to arrive.
Use the Third Method also when you do not know what else to do. By bringing your mind back to harmony – you can see more clearly and you can recognize better what is good for you. Jin Shin Jyutsu instructor Carlos Gutteres says he likes to start with the Third Method on clients who are focussed too much on their sickness. To help calm their mind and move onto more harmonious thoughts. Then, he would follow with other flows to address their specific situations.
