Celebrating this Baby Boom w/ Baby Legs!

I was just online shopping for 3 more new moms I know & one of my favorite baby shower gifts is Baby Legs! I didn't understand them myself when I was given them as a baby shower gift, but then I learned the genius of my baby wearing leg warmers, as diaper changes are a breeze!

Since Babylegs was having a wonderful sale & I have had so many lovely pregnancy massage clients lately, I decided to do a Babyleg special, when you book your Prenatal Massage between now & Mother's Day you will receive a Free pair of BABYLEGS leg warmers (while supplies last!)

And if you are purchasing a Mother's Day Massage Gift Certificate, we have great deals until 5/5/16!

Pregnancy Massage does more than just feel good!

Tiffany Field PhD researcher for the Touch Institute in Department of Pediatrics led a study of the benefits of Prenatal Massage for both mother & baby. Massage therapy has been proven to be beneficial during pregnancy.

Women who received massage therapy reported decreased depression, anxiety, reduced leg and back pain. Cortisol levels decreased and excessive fetal activity decreased.  Sleep and sense of well being improved.  The rate of prematurity was lower in the massage group. In a study of labors, women who received massage therapy experienced significantly less pain, less distress and their labors were on average 3 hours shorter with less need for medications.

• Massage therapy is the most common alternative therapy recommended during pregnancy. • Massage therapy has been demonstrated to be effective during pregnancy. The women reported decreased depression, anxiety and less leg and back pain. • In our study on labor pain, women receiving massage therapy experienced significantly less pain and their labors were on average 3 hours shorter with less need for medication. • The most important finding was the lower incidence of prematurity and low birthweight in the massaged women. • Postpartum depression and cortisol levels were decreased in the massaged women. The newborns of the massaged mothers also had lower cortisol levels than the newborns of the control mothers.

Reiki 2 Class – Symbols for Distance Healing 4/23/16

Posted on: April 4th, 2016 by healing_arts_admin
You must have received a Reiki 1 attunement 21 days before attending this course. It is fine if your Reiki 1 training was done somewhere else... I love this quote from a recent Reiki 2 graduates daughter, "mom, your reiki has gotten stronger, must be that reiki class where you learned Japanese that helped."  this mom had taken Reiki 2 so that she could send Reiki to her daughter's surgery & our whole class sent Reiki to her daughter's surgery. Every class seems to have some inspiring, touching story like this.  This is why I love teaching Reiki & secretly Reiki 2 Class is my favorite one, this is where the magic really happens!!! In Second Degree Reiki training you will receive the Reiki symbols in an attunement. The symbols are like keys that open the mind to even greater healing powers. This form of Reiki can be used for distance healing, across time and space, for people, animals, and situations. It is particularly helpful in hospice situations. You also learn how to clear and protect spaces.  This form of Reiki is especially beneficial to therapists, counselors, or teachers who want to bring healing into their work but touch is not within their scope of practice. I like to say Reiki 2 is the Calculus of Reiki b/c this is where you get tools (symbols), language and skills to really "do" stuff with your Reiki.  It is a lot to learn in a day! I feel like my Reiki really took off after Reiki 2 class.  Students will bring a stuffed animal to use as a "body" while we send distance Reiki, each student brings someone or something they wish to give distance Reiki to & the whole class sends distance energy to it, it is powerful & miraculous!!! You may find some teachers who group Reiki 1 and 2 together. It is my belief that you gain more from Reiki 2 if you have had some practice with Reiki before receiving the symbols. For this reason, I require at least 21 days practice between Reiki 1 and 2 in keeping with the Usui tradition. Reiki is pronounced ray-key, it is comprised of two Japanese words Rei which means “higher power” and Ki which means “vital, life force energy.” It originated from a Japanese Buddhist named Mikao Usui in 1922, after he experienced a profound meditation on Mount Karuma. He was awakened with a power to heal and to empower others to heal. His legacy has been passed down from Reiki Master to student ever since. Reiki is a non-invasive, hands on healing where the recipient lies on a massage table, fully clothed (and it can also be done in a chair, by a river, in a hospital bed). Hands are placed on different areas of the body with the intent to bring the body into balance on every level: mental, emotional, spiritual and physical. Reiki assists ones body to self heal. The body receives the energy and through it’s own intelligence, sends it to the areas it is most needed. Reiki 2 is particularly beneficial for: • sending distance healing energy • sending energy to situations for the highest healing good of all concerned • sending energy for surgeries or appointments to improve outcome • Using the symbol for emotional wellness & empowerment for improving mental health states. • Finding lost objects, lost animals or people • sending energy to Resumes, Applications, buying a house or other Miracles you wish to manifest! • improving immune function & recovery from illness • creates calmness, improved sleep quality • Hospice care, you will learn how to do a Bridge of Light for passing over. As a Massage Therapist for 14 years, I am most grateful for Reiki as a modality when there are injuries that cannot be massaged, for instance an open wound that is healing, a broken bone in a cast, client has a rash, sunburn or cancer with tumors. I can still rely on Reiki, even working 2 inches above the body has proven effective treatment in a variety of cases.   Here is what one student has to say about Reiki Class “I am a bodyworker who was experiencing extreme fatigue, adrenal depletion and thinking maybe I’d have to give up doing bodywork if I couldn’t get my health in check. I went to Terri for a Massage and she recommend I add Reiki to my toolbox because it could help me as well as giving me a modality I could do that would not wear me out so much. So I took Reiki 1 class and right after the attunement I felt my energy come flooding back. We learned how to do Reiki self care, which I have done almost everyday since the class, I feel re-born. My clients have enjoyed receiving Reiki, too, some of them are reaching much deeper levels of relaxation than ever before. I feel like I can go on as a bodyworker, this Reiki class saved my health and my career!” Tammy G.
