Adele introduces the practice of J.S.J. for both self help and for the dogs into the program during week one. It is practiced by inmates throughout the course of the program. Jin Shin Jyutsu, the ancient art that harmonizes the balance of body, mind and spirit through hands-on practice, fits surprising well in this setting. This practice enhances the bond and results in the ability for both the inmate and canine to grow, change and ultimately experience healing and harmony. The men are required to work on themselves in order to become more centered as well as to understand what the canine experience when sharing a session. The men learn to understand the meaning of the flows and Safety Energy Locks and how to share them with dogs of many different breeds and temperaments. Each man develops a treatment plan to help their dog overcome particular issues such as trauma from the past, fears, food aggression, immune deficiencies, arthritis and skin issues to name a few.
