Your Bridge to Health; Promoting Optimal Wellness for Body, Mind and Spirit

‘Community Reiki Share.’ Tuesday. December 6th –  Whether a seasoned practitioner or new to Reiki, all are welcomed to attend. Come as an observer. Join in a meditation. Enjoy a Reiki Session. Participate in some or all of the evening and enjoy the sense of ‘peace, comfort and calm’ that Reiki can provide.

Reiki can best be described by the experience. Physicians participating in my ‘Introduction to Reiki’ at a Boston hospital enjoyed sample sessions and described their experience as “calming,” “interesting” and even “remarkable.”

‘Community Reiki Share.’ 5:15 pm – 8:15 pm at the Manchester Community Center. 40 Beach St. Manchester-by-the-Sea, MA. On the MBTA Train line; wheelchair accessible. Reiki Sessions ‘By Donation.’ $20.00 suggested donation. ($10.00 for Seniors, Veterans, those in treatment for cancer.) Reiki Practitioners may arrive at 4:30 pm for practice of Hatsurei Ho, a Japanese reiki technique used as a form of meditation and helpful for quick calming and centering.

Reiki Sessions Promote a Relaxed State of Mind and Body

Reiki sessions promote a relaxed state of mind and body, with potential health benefits.

What is Reiki –  ‘Reiki (ray-kee) Ryoho’ is a healing method/art that began in Japan in 1922. Offered through light touch and without manipulation of tissue, reiki 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. Note: Deep relaxation may lead to intrusive thoughts and memories. If you have a history of mental illness or trauma, first check with your physician and then seek an experienced, qualified provider.

Can’t afford a private Reiki Session? Reiki Shares/Clinics are affordable ways to enjoy a session. Here, Reiki is offered in a ‘group setting’ as an affordable way for people to receive a Reiki Session. Dreamtime Wellness™ offers monthly Reiki Shares and Clinics as ‘practice venues’ for students as well as a way for reiki practitioners and others to gather in community and peace. 

  • Monthly Reiki Shares offered ‘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. New Date – Beginning October 21st,
  • Monthly ‘Reiki for Seniors’ offered ‘Third Fridays’ 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. at the Rose Baker Senior Center. Note – There will be no ‘Reiki for Seniors’ this month at the Rose Baker Senior Center – Reiki will resume January 20th.

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.

Reiki to Support Cancer Patients – Employed as the RN/Reiki Provider at the North Shore Medical Center (NSMC) and Mass General Hospital (MGH) Cancer Centers, and currently as the RN/Reiki Provider at Tufts Medical Center Oncology, I have seen first-hand the benefits reiki offers in the cancer setting. Patients receiving Integrative Therapies during cancer treatment report these treatments help them “feel better,”  “cope better,” and some reported “a greater sense of ‘hope.” Ask about our discounted Reiki sessions and Reiki Training for ‘self-care’ for patients undergoing treatment for cancer.

On Hope by Emily Dickinson

As long as there is life, there is HOPE.
