July 5th Community Reiki Share –  a portion of July’s ‘Reiki Share’ will be donated to Reid’s Ride, in appreciation for all they do to fund cancer research, treatment and supportive services for Adolescents and Young Adults with Cancer.

What is Reiki –  ‘Reiki (ray-kee) Ryoho’ is the healing method/art that began in Japan in 1922. Reiki, offered through light touch and without manipulation of tissue, is generally considered to be safe. https://nccih.nih.gov/health/reiki/introduction.htm. A growing number of hospitals incorporate Reiki as part of Integrative Therapies, offering Reiki before/after surgery and in the cancer treatment setting.   https://nccih.nih.gov/health/decisions/consideringcam.htm  While more research is needed to show effectiveness for treatment for certain conditions, preliminary studies of Reiki have demonstrated ‘decreased anxiety.’ Reiki generally creates a calming, relaxing experience.

Dreamtime Wellness™ Reiki Shares/Clinics are offered in a ‘group setting’ as an affordable way for people to receive a Reiki Session. Monthly Reiki Shares are available ‘First Tuesdays’ at the Manchester Community Center, 40 Beach Street (Harbor Point,) Manchester-by-the-Sea. Conveniently located next to the MBTA train station. 5:15 – 8:15 pm. Monthly Reiki Clinics are offered ‘Third Wednesdays’ at Lahey Hospital Outpatient Danvers/Pain Management Center’s Integrative Therapies. 480 Maple Ave. Danvers, MA. 5:30 – 7:30 pm.

To learn more about Reiki and other therapies offered in ‘Integrative Oncology’ (incorporating complementary therapies with conventional medicine as supportive care and symptom management,) here are some links to the National Institutes of Health/National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health – www. nccih.nih.gov and for specific articles –http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3863498/   https://nccih.nih.gov/health/reiki/introduction.htm#effectshttp://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21998438. More rigorous study of Reiki is needed, but preliminary studies indicate that Reiki may be helpful for decreasing pain and anxiety in the cancer treatment setting.

As the RN/Reiki Provider at the North Shore Medical Center (NSMC,) Mass General Hospital (MGH,) and Tufts Medical Center Cancer Centers, I have heard first-hand how ‘patients receiving Integrative Therapies during cancer treatment report these treatments help them “feel better,”  “cope better,” and some report “a greater sense of hope.'”

Private Reiki Sessions and Reiki Training are also available through Dreamtime Wellness™  Offering Reiki in Healthcare and Hospitals Since 1999. Teaching Traditional (Western) Reiki since 2000. Teaching Japanese Komyo Reiki since 2012.)
