John Byrnes

was introduced to Jin Shin Jyutsu by his wife Jude in 2013 and attended his first human class immediately preceding a bilateral hip replacement. Shortly, after receiving his certification to practice JSJ in 2015, he began studying with Adele Leas, and has attended six of her animal classes. John’s focus has been working with shelter animals at three rescue organizations in the Charleston area. He is a certified practitioner and self-help instructor and has been invited to join the faculty of Jin Shin Jyutsu for your Animal Companions. During an incredibly challenging 2020, John and Jude offered an Introduction to Jin Shin Jyutsu for Animals online, using the Zoom platform, to reach students around the globe. They will continue to offer classes online and in person where possible.
