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.

Dreamtime Wellness™ Launches New Logo & On-line Store

Promoting Optimal Wellness for Mind, Body and Spirit

Gifts Certificates and Generic Self-Hypnosis Recordings (CDs and MP3s) – NOW AVAILABLE at our secure, on-line store.

Relaxation, Meditation and Hypnosis – People have been asking for recordings of my guided meditation and hypnosis sessions for many years.

Offering hypnosis/hypnotherapy/guided meditation since 2000. I was often asked for a ‘recording.’ Over the past 7 years we have been producing and testing our generic recordings. Based on hundreds of individual client responses and their feedback, we have found them to be safe, effective, when used as directed. Ready to Launch!

Self-Care Tools – these recordings are intended as self-care tools and adjunctive (supportive) aids in collaboration with your conventional medical care. Feel free to contact us with any questions, prior to or after purchase of any of these products.

Generic recordings offer more accessibility and affordability. Not everyone can afford a one-on-one private session. Not everyone will be able to travel to see me in person.

By offering these recordings on-line I am hoping to bring the benefits of relaxation and positive, healthy lifestyle changes to more people around the globe.

Our On-line Store Launched on Summer Solstice. The First Day of Summer seemed a great time to launch products that help promote change.

Using your guided personal meditation tape has provided me much peace and relaxation as I have journeyed through my medical complications. It has helped ease anxiety, minimize medication withdrawal symptoms, and promote sleep. I have used what I have learned to be more mindful in the moment.”  ~ Nancy S.M.  Buffalo, NY

In addition, on the day of the Summer Solstice this review and testimonial was posted on Facebook, prompting me to finally make the on-line store a reality:

Client Testimonial – “Using a guided personal mediation tape made for me by Karen has provided me much peace and relaxation as I have journeyed through my medical complications. It has helped ease anxiety, minimize medication withdrawal symptoms, and promote sleep. I have used what I have learned to be more mindful in the moment.”  ~ Nancy S.M.   Tonawonda, NY

Note: Consult your physician prior to using relaxation, meditation or hypnosis recordings.While relaxation, meditation and hypnosis are generally safe, there are some precautions.

Thank you to multi-talented Diana Whitten of Gloucester MA for the design of the new logo for Dreamtime Wellness™ LLC.

World Peace cannot occur until individuals are balanced in Mind, Body and Spirit.”  ~ Anonymous

The new Dreamtime Wellness logo is meant to convey my background in nursing along with a passion for promoting health and wellbeing for mind, body & spirit. The ultimate goal – a sense of inner peace and happiness, ‘rippling out’ to others.

Enjoy the relaxation and health benefits. ~ Best in Health,  Karen

Addiction of Loving an Addict ~

Addiction of Loving an Addict ~

Have you or someone you know experienced the Addiction of Loving an Addict?

Please join Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC and Jenny Ravikumar of Barefoot Yoga Shala for an evening of discussion around healing your heart, body and soul from the addiction of loving an addict.  Sunday, June 4 from 4-6pm

During our evening of conversation and refreshments, we will be learning about the addiction of loving an addict. What it means to be co-dependent, how shame and forgiveness play into family disease and what you can do to begin your own recovery. We will connect on how we can explore the use of yoga, al-anon principles, essential oils and breath work to heal.

You deserve self-care. Addiction may not be your choice, but it is your journey. How you move forward is your choice. Let’s release shame, invite forgiveness and explore loving kindness.

We will end our evening with a guided meditation, breath work and an essential oil assist.

Jenny Ravikumar, e-RYT 500 hour teacher, reiki master, healer and writer. She will share her powerful story of how she began (and is still to this day) healing her own heart while staying strong in loving her son and creating a new family lifestyle for them both.

This is a free event – please spread the word.

Are You Seeing Red?

Promoting Optimal Wellness for Body, Mind and Spirit

Promoting Optimal Wellness for Body, Mind and Spirit

With yesterday’s snow storm you may not have gotten out much, but if you had you may have noticed a lot of women wearing red for National Red Dress Day. 

RedDressPin

Heart disease remains the #1 Killer of men and women world-wide. Heart (cardiovascular) disease includes high blood pressure, heart attack (myocardial infarction,) abnormal heart rhythm (arrhythmia,) congestive heart failure (CHF,) stroke (cerebrovascular disease) and more.

February is ‘National Heart Month.’ Wear red this month to help bring awareness to heart disease, risk factors, and prevention. ‘Get your red on’ all month-long.

Recognize Warning Signs of a Heart Attack. Symptoms of a heart attack can be different in men and women (more subtle at times) and may include –

  • Chest pain or discomfort
  • Pain in the upper body such as the neck, jaw, upper back, or arms
  • A squeezing feeling or tightness in the chest
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Sweating
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Dizziness or light-headedness

If you are experiencing symptoms of a heart attack, call 9-1-1 immediately. Don’t delay. Don’t drive yourself to the hospital.  As they say – “Time is heart.” “Time is brain.” This means that the faster you act, the better you heart and brain function can be preserved.

The Good News – Heart disease is largely preventable and controlled. Ask your doctor about your risk factors, prevention and treatment. In the meantime, take steps for a healthier you!

  • Stop smoking.
  • Manage blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes and stress.
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Maintain a healthy weight.
  • Eat healthily.
  • Avoid or moderate use of alcohol.

Mention this post for FREE Blood Pressure Screening and FREE Smoking Cessation Consultation during the month of February at Dreamtime Wellness™ for FOB. Call 978-283-4258 to make an appointment.
