Mary Mariko (Iino) Burmeister and Jin Shin Jyutsu®

Mr. Uhachi Iino and his daughter Mary, a second generation Japanese American, attended Murai’s lectures in the late 1940s as students of his teaching. They returned to the U.S. in 1954, and Mary studied Shiatsu in a relocation camp. Mr. Iino and Mary continued learning through correspondence with Murai.

Mr. Iino taught those who asked and contributed to the dissemination of the method while treating people with it. He used to practice on his daughter while studying and shared information with her as a fellow student of Murai’s teaching. Mr. Iino has since died and Mary Mariko Iino carried on the tradition that was started by her father.

Mary, born in Seattle 1918, married a serviceman and has carried the name Mary Burmeister since then. When Mr. Iino and his daughter returned to the U.S., Haruki Kato had not yet become a student of Murai’s.

It is said that Mary, after 17 years of studying and working on people in need, started actively sharing the method in 1963. Upon her return to the U.S., she settled in Los Angeles and later moved to Scottsdale, Arizona, where *Jin Shin Jyutsu, Inc. was started. In the 1980s Mary turned JSJ, Inc. over to her second son David to run the business. Mary Burmeister died January, 2008.
