That action started her on a life-long learning experience and set her free. Since then self-help JSJ became the vital tool to maintaining her own health. While unsure of exactly how to proceed, it seemed only natural to share it with her beloved companion, Amiti, a sickly aging Collie. He turned out to be a very patient and willing recipient who was clear about what felt right. The resulting increase in quality, and perhaps quantity, of life was profound.
Like so many whose lives have been transformed through this beautiful Art, Adele found herself studying and sharing Jin Shin Jyutsu with others. Upon settling in New Orleans, she established a full time human practice. It was because of her volunteer work with a number of animal rescue organizations and her own emergency work with abandoned and abused pets that she began sharing JSJ with more and more animals. The vast majority of animals who receive JSJ are domesticated – either peoples’ beloved pets or animals in rescue and shelter situations waiting for their new people to adopt them. From 2006 thru 2009, Adele worked and taught part time at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, Utah. Adele has been a staff member at Alaqua Animal Refuge in Freeport, Florida since 2012. Shelter animals almost always respond so profoundly to this non-verbal expression of compassion.
