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.

Chakra’s and your health ~

Chakra’s and your health ~

 

Ayurveda Wellness Healing is asked a lot how ones Chakra’s can effect their well being.

Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning wheel, or vortex, and it refers to each of the seven energy centers of which our consciousness, our energy system, is composed.

Around each human being there is an energy field known as the aura. It usually extends 10-15cm out from the physical body. Some people can see the aura with all its colours, others can see a faint light, some cannot see anything at all, but this does not matter. The colours in our aura change depending on our state of health or our mood. The colour and energy of the aura is produced by the chakras. The chakras are the seven energy centres in our etheric body. They are wheels of bright colour which spin totally in balance when we are healthy and happy. When we are in bad health or feeling distressed, the chakras spin out of balance and the colours are not so bright. Each chakra is related to a particular colour. It needs to produce this colour for its energy field and it needs to spin in balance.

Base = Red
The Base or Root Chakra is associated with the color red. This chakra is the grounding force that allows us to connect to the earth energies and empower our beings. Focusing one’s attention on the color of a cherry popsicle or a juicy red apple can help bring our energetic body “down to earth” and in alignment with our physical body when we find ourselves energetically fleeting or in other words…..”spacing off.”

Physical Location – base of the spine
Physical dysfunctions associated with base chakra – lower back pain, sciatica, varicose veins, rectal tumors, depression, immune related disorders
Mental/Emotional Issues – survival, self esteem, social order, security, family
Information stored in base chakra – familial beliefs, superstitions, loyalty, instincts, physical pleasure or pain, touch
Area of Body Governed – spinal column, kidneys, legs, feet, rectum, immune system

Fresh Air ~

Fresh Air ~

Are you held up inside most of the day working? Do you eat lunch at your desk or in the lunch room/break room?

Holed up in an office all day you can sometimes forget what time it is. Sometimes the only light that shines on your face is the glare of a computer monitor or florescent lights.

Make sure you take some time for fresh air and sunshine. It’s healing, balancing, and grounding to get outside and back to nature, even for a little bit.

So start today – get outside, look up and breathe!

Summer heat = inflammation

Summer heat = inflammation

Summer is Pitta season through the lens of Ayurveda – which means fire, heat, inflammation.

It’s important to stay cool, both inside and out, in mind and body.

Start today with learning to let go, it’s not important to try and control everything as it will only create more heat.

Cool off/Chill out:

Take a tablespoon of aloe vera gel (not juice) as a Pitta tonic (heat reducing) every day to quell your fire. Do abhyanga (self oil massage) with coconut oil once a week (or more). To really quell fanning flames, consider coating your scalp (hair included) with coconut oil, wrapping it in a towel or even plastic wrap (you will look so pretty LOL) for bed. When you wake up, wash it out with shampoo and not only will your hair feel great, but you should notice less burning in the mind and body as well.

Give it a try and cool out with Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC
