Introduction:  Patients diagnosed with advanced stage and/or aggressive cancers often feel hopeless and barraged with physical, mental, and emotional stress. Modern medicine focuses heavily on such stressors and their tendency to unravel homeostasis, impeding the healing process. Complementing traditional treatments with alternative medicine helps patients self-soothe and self-heal, especially when coupled with self-help practices that patients can be taught. This study demonstrates the effectiveness of such healing methods that have proven effective anecdotally when used in traditional medical settings. Method: Upon diagnosis, participants were regularly treated and with Jin shin Jyutsu, an ancient Japanese healing art that resets the body by corralling natural energy to re-establish circulatory pathways. Patients also learned and practiced self-help healing methods. Results: Patients escaped most debilitating side effects of cancer treatment, experienced emotional and physical wellness and demonstrated exceptionally fast response rates and textbook notable shrinkage of tumors.  The nontraditional healing methods for these patients supported and rebuilt their immune systems, resulting in unexpected and positive medical outcomes. Discussion: In order to establish and recognize the importance of this art as an effective, professional tool applied during the course of traditional cancer treatment, it is necessary to conduct science-based studies of the measurable outcomes of Jin Shin Jyutsu on disease processes. In addition, it is important to provide education in healthcare settings, focusing on Jin Shin Jyutsu’s self-healing methods that appear to provide not only a deep sense of physical, mental, and emotional wellness but a method of self-empowerment towards one’s own healing.
