Reiki Lecture at Brigham and Women’s and Reiki Share

FREE Lecture: The Benefits and Science Behind Reiki for Cancer Patients. Monday. September 11. 6:30 pm. Brigham and Women’s Lung Cancer Forum. Brookline MA. Contact us for details.

Reiki (ray-kee) is a gentle Japanese healing art that promotes relaxation and potentially improve comfort and calm, offering emotional and physical benefits while undergoing treatment for cancer. Reiki sessions are offered with the client/patient fully clothed, either lying or seated, often with light touch, but no manipulation.

Gentle and generally relaxing, reiki sessions are often viewed as supportive care by patients receiving them.Though the science is still out about the effectiveness of reiki, a number of hospitals and healthcare settings are incorporating reiki as adjunctive support for stress and pain management. (Contact me for current research studies related to reiki in the oncology setting.)

Reiki Sessions are offered in a variety of cancer centers throughout the U.S. including Brigham and Women’s, Dana Farber, Beth Israel Deaconess, and Tufts Medical Center.

Note: Talk to your doctor about reiki and other complementary and integrative therapies you are or thinking about receiving. Reiki sessions are not meant to take the place of conventional treatment.

Ancient is the New New…

With chronic disease at epidemic proportions around the world, the need for novel preventive and health-restoring solutions is urgent.

Modern research reveals that dramatic reductions in cardiovascular and other chronic disease is possible through lifestyle intervention, however the knowledge base is fragmented, often inconsistent and insufficient to motivate many patients.

Ayurvedic knowledge offers a powerful added dimension of diagnosis, prevention and care through personalization, chronotherapeutics and medical foods and herbs based on the tridosha system that is appealing to the patient, “makes sense,” and is supported by a growing body of research.

Let us introduce you to yourself. Call us to set up a private consultation.

Stay off streets as much as possible so the plows can do their job. Shovel out fire hydrants from the snow.

Neighbors Helping Neighbors – Check-in on those that are ill or elderly.

Today’s snow is wet and heavy, creating increased risk of injury and heart attack for those shoveling. Hire a plow or a neighbor to help. If you do have to shovel or use a snow blower, follow the safety tips in the link below.

If you have to get out, drive slow. Use extra caution. Wear sturdy boots with good traction and bright colors for visibility. Be safe and walk with grace.
