Gail Okray

Gail Okray was inspired by her passion for the Japanese art of Jin Shin Jyutsu to open Key Elements for health. She has been a Jin Shin Jyutsu Physio-philosophy practitioner since 1998. Over the years, Gail has motivated hundreds of individuals to move toward a healthier and more vibrant life through this ancient Japanese art.

Gail’s own experience with chronic pain and fibromyalgia led her to Jin Shin Jyutsu. After more than ten years of doctor visits, tests and agony, she was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 1995. This is ultimately what lead her to the Japanese art of Jin Shin Jyutsu. Through personal sessions and the power of self-help, Gail's life was transformed. She moved from a state of pain, muscle discomfort and weakness to a happier, healthier, more productive life.

Through self-care workshops, community outreach programs and various speaking engagements, Gail enjoys sharing her knowledge of Jin Shin Jyutsu with her community. She has worked with the Lifelong Learning Institute (LLI), the Aging and Disability Resource Center and Beacon House. Gail is also a resource to local practitioners by leading Jin Shin Jyutsu study groups and organizing practitioner-level classes in Green Bay, WI.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Jin Shin Jyutsu (JSJ)?
You’re probably already familiar with the concept of acupuncture and acupressure. Jin Shin Jyutsu comes from similar roots. Did you know there’s energy flowing through your body all the time? It flows like a river following specific paths. Eastern cultures have been studying these pathways for thousands of years, finding ways to improve health and wellness by balancing the flow of energy. What makes JSJ stand out from other philosophies is that we use different tools to achieve the same result. That means no needles and no pressure. When your energy pathways are blocked or weakened, it throws your physical, mental and/or emotional state out of whack. You may feel this as pain, fatigue, anxiety or restlessness. Here’s what you may not realize: Every person possesses the ability to help themselves.
Is it safe?
Yes, Jin Shin Jyutsu is entirely safe and completely non-invasive.
Is this like massage, acupuncture, acupressure, shiatsu or reiki?
All of those modalities focus on clearing the paths of energy flow. Jin Shin Jyutsu comes from similar roots. Energy flows through your body like a river, following specific pathways. Eastern cultures have been studying these pathways for thousands of years, looking for ways to improve health and wellness by balancing the flow of energy. What makes Jin Shin Jyutsu stand out from other philosophies is that we use different tools to achieve the same result. That means no needles and no pressure.
What training have you had?
I became a practitioner after taking several five-day training seminars from instructors chosen by Mary Ino Burmeister, the woman who introduced Jin Shin Jyutsu to America. I am a practitioner through the Jin Shin Jyutsu main office (located in Scottsdale, Arizona). I generally take 2 or more classes each year and have also taken small-group mentoring classes offered at the Jin Shin Jyutsu main office.
What is the difference between these courses and your six-hour self-help seminars using Mary Burmeister's self-help books?
These courses are designed to be a supplement to our six-hour self-help seminars, and they are especially beneficial to people who are unable to attend a class in person due to distance or health concerns. The self-help seminars based on Mary's books offer a more in-depth look at the philosophy behind the art and a more experiential approach to self help. At the seminar, you get plenty of hands-on practice time, real-time answers to your questions, and increased confidence in your ability to perform the holds. At Key Elements for health, we teach each of Mary's three books independently. Each class is six hours, and includes the book, handouts and lunch. For more information about our self-help classes, visit These online courses delve into specific ailments and focus mainly on symptom relief to help you feel better. Also, the courses are only 20 minutes, 30 minutes or 60 minutes long, and they can be taken at your leisure.
When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course, so you decide when you start and when you finish.
How will this course help me?
Jin Shin Jyutsu does something that many other modalities do not: It gives you the opportunity to help yourself, rather than depending solely on the practitioner to help alleviate your ailments. Through this course, you will learn simple, step-by-step self-care holds that can easily be incorporated into your everyday life.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 30 days and we will give you a full refund.
