is an internationally known teacher and proponent of JSJ for animals. Originally a practitioner of this Art for humans, Adele’s expertise lies in comprehending the balancing of body/mind/spirit in diverse species…and in seeing the universality of the application of the work no matter who one is sharing it with.

Adele is the author of Jin Shin Jyutsu for Your Animal Companion, now in its sixth printing. Adele has had animal clients and taught JSJ animal classes for more than twenty-six years throughout the US and Canada, South Africa, Brazil and in 7 European countries. She was delighted to be chosen as one of the speakers at the First International Jin Shin Jyutsu forum in Porto Alegre, Brazil in 2004.

In 1989 the “gift” of poor health brought JSJ into Adele’s life. She was facing some major health challenges stemming from a weak immune system and several severe accidents. Responding poorly to traditional medical procedures, she was becoming more and more sickly until being introduced to JSJ as a result of a gift certificate for a session. At the time Adele had never heard of Jin Shin Jyutsu. Adele learned some simple self help exercises after her first session and continues to use them daily. This practice gave her the much needed information that she could heal herself from a state of extreme disease and weakness.
