NEW Crystal Grid Workshop happening Saturday, September 7th ~ watch upcoming posts for more information!


fbpersprof1A Reiki Master since 1996, I follow the traditional Usui method of Reiki in both the sessions shared with clients and classes shared with students.  The practice of Reiki has become a daily way of living gently and lovingly upon the earth and is just a natural part of sharing love with my family (including pets), friends, clients and the world around me. One benefit I find to Reiki is the ability (after taking the 2nd degree) to send Reiki to others. On the rare occasions that I do watch the news and witness some of the tragedies that are reported locally and around the world I am able to send Reiki out to hopefully help and heal those that are injured from earthquake, war, tsunami, etc. and I am honoured, that in some small way, I can share the gift that is Reiki. The comment often made is “you seem so calm” and Reiki would be the reason for that sense of peace within.

H2H WonderWhyse Tips#2 ~ Why wait?

When is the optimal time to go for a massage or a Reiki session? and How often should you go?

Really common questions from clients…and also easy to answer…You go as soon as your body or mind has brought the idea to your awareness!

Rather than hoping that the emotional and physical pain will go away if you just ignore it, or waiting to see if it will get better on its own why not consider this line of thought; “hey, I don’t want this issue of pain or uneasiness, it doesn’t feel comfortable, it is restricting my day to day living…how can I ease my body and my mind?”

When you have injured or over-worked a muscle or a group of muscles, they need some help to relax and heal. Often, in pushing your muscles to get you back to what needs doing, you are causing further injury, and that is only going to restrict you further. That’s a pretty good reason not to wait to have it treated. If anything is restricting your day to day enjoyment of life, restricting activities that you like to do…it’s time to take care of it!

English: A hungry baby yelling and crying.After one of those just incredibly tough weeks at work, where you’ve had a rush of deadlines to meet, and you feel overwhelmed with that never-ending to do list, you can feel pretty hunched over with stress. The ears are a little closer to the shoulders, the mind won’t let you sleep as what needs doing swirls around and around in your head at night, the stress may be upsetting your stomach or at some points it can feel so overwhelming that you want to cry.I’m always curious, when clients talk about this, that they often say they were just waiting for things to calm down and get better before coming for their session. Wouldn’t it be a good idea to come in before you get to that overwhelmed breaking point and stop the stress in its tracks? If you’ve experienced a Reiki session then you know that it makes you slow down, breath deeply and upon ending, your mind comes back to the “to do” list from a completely new and refreshed perspective.

I always recommend taking care of things at the start of the problem rather than waiting. Too often emotional, mental and physical stress are ignored, put on the back burner and forgotten about until the body and mind are screaming at you so loudly that they just will not let you ignore them any further. If you take a moment to breathe and check in with your body…I’m sure it’s talking to you “clearly”!

Another questions often asked is “How often should I come for sessions?”

My goal as a natural health practitioner is to encourage and facilitate your body’s innate abilities to switch back on and keep you in a healthy state. My eventual goal is that you won’t need to come back and see me.
Sometimes that takes a few session (how long have you had the problem?) as most modalities go with the rhythm of the body and the mind and it’s healing process, which is not necessarily on our time schedule.
 After that maintenance is always a good idea. By maintenance I don’t mean allowing your body to go back to the previously injured and stressed out condition before coming back….I mean to book ahead a self-care maintenance schedule that works for you….and if you listen, your and your mind will tell you what that should be.

Are you listening?
Do you put your physical & emotional aches and pains on a waiting list?

Lie back and say ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh…..

Taking the time to take care of YOU is the most important thing you can do….every single day!

For many, summer seems a busier time than most, but self-care is still just as important.  I encourage you to stop for a minute and think about the last time you allowed yourself to indulge in a Massage, some Reflexology, a Reiki session… why has it been so long? Is it really an “indulgence”?

One of the keys to retaining our natural state of well-being is maintenance. Whether it means drinking enough water everyday, stretching out our muscles, finding ways to calm our mind or even just breathing deeply. When  you maintain your body, mind and spirit they run like the engine of a well tuned car and you will find that any stresses you meet up with, whether physical or emotional, are easier to handle.
