We Need Your Help!

We Need Your Help!

This is important for anyone who practices and/or receives Reiki.(And I apologize that this section is so long! But it is really important!!)
This is a Call to Action! You can make a difference by using your voice to educate lawmakers on the consequences of their actions. 
  • We just became aware of Massachusetts Senate Bill S2461, which is moving quickly through the legislature. Legislators are very concerned about human trafficking and do not want to appear in any way "soft" on it. The Bill has been through two votes in the Senate without a single "No vote" and is moving to the House for consideration in Committees there before a floor vote.
  • If this Bill passes, Reiki practitioners will not be able to practice Reiki in Massachusetts without first having a license from the state.
  • The following modalities are affected by Bill S2461:
  •  Feldenkrais method; reflexology; Trager Approach; AyurvedicTherapies; Rolf Structural Integration, Polarity Therapy; Asian bodywork therapy; acupressure; Jin Shin Do; Qi Gong; Tui Na; Shiatsu; body-mind centering and Reiki.  These modalities are being placed in the category of "Bodywork".
  • The Joint Committee on Healthcare Financing will be taking testimony via email from interested parties; the committee has only until August 27th to move this through- there is a very good chance that they will not take the full time to review this bill.
  • That is why we are calling for a Call To Action today.
  • First, some more background on Bill S2461:
  • All practitioners will need a license from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in order to practice.
  • This Bill classifies Reiki as a "bodywork therapy."
  • This bill is based on a misunderstanding of Reiki and a misunderstanding of "Bodywork".
  • There is no such profession as "bodywork" or "bodywork therapy".
  • Further, many Reiki practitioners define Reiki as a mind-body-spirit healing practice and not "bodywork" at all.
  • "Bodywork" is just a catch-all term for a broad field containing many disciplines, some of which are full professions that already have their own bodies of knowledge, educational programs, codes of ethics, standards of practice, etc. as well as professional organizations to administer these.
  • According to the Bill, all practitioners, including Reiki practitioners, must "pass a course of study containing 500 hours or an equivalent number of credit hours of supervised instruction in a nationally accredited bodywork therapy program."  
  • As you know this is not applicable to Reiki practitioners, as we do not have a "nationally accredited program", nor does Reiki training require "at least 500 classroom hours."
  • This bill would harm our practitioners and the citizens of Massachusetts who benefit from their services.
  • Citizens of Massachusetts receiving services from these practitioners would no longer be able to continue receiving the benefits these modalities have to offer. 
  • You can make a difference by using your voice to educate lawmakers on the consequences of their actions.
HOW YOU CAN HELP STOP THIS BILL
Become informed and read the Bill itself.

Please send an email ASAP to the Joint Committee on Health Care Financing Michael.Cannella@masenate.gov
  and include the following:
 
 
1. Salutation: Dear So and So
2Subject: Opposition to S2461
3. Your name and address 
4. State that you are a Reiki (and/or other) Practitioner
5. Say you oppose the passing of S2461 
6. State the reasons why you oppose S2461.  This is an impact statement of how this Bill would adversely affect you and your business personally.  Be sure to personalize your letter:
  •  If you are a Reiki practitioner, state the negative consequences the bill would have on your practice, e.g., the bill would put you out of business, create unnecessary expenses, the bill does not understand what Reiki is and does not understand what bodywork is. 
  • If you are a Reiki recipient, please state the negative impact the bill would have on you and your loved ones, e.g. you would no longer be able to receive the services/benefits of (include the name of the modality). 
  • Please do not wait to send this. The email does not have to be long or complicated. Take a few minutes and send it out today. Everything depends on everyone taking action now.
  • It is very important to follow up your email with a phone call and be sure to ask them to officially log your call in opposition to the bill.
  • Reach out to your loyal clients for them to write an impact statement to send to the committee, as well. 
  • Please volunteer, even if you do not reside in Massachusetts. We need help getting the word out. If you can spare time to make phone calls, send emails, etc.

Massage Those Blues Away!
It helps Heal Depression and Anxiety!

For any and all reasons people can and will become depressed or consistently anxious in their lifetime. It is what it is. And lots of those people will take medication for it. Hey, if you need to, go for it! But there is an alternative.

Massage is best known as a way to relax. We can all agree on that. In a study conducted by the Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami School of Medicine, they "conclude that massage therapy relieves depression and anxiety by affecting the body's biochemistry. In a series of studies including about 500 men, women, and children with depression or stress problems, researchers measured the stress hormone cortisol in participants before and immediately after massage and found that the therapy lowered levels by up to 53%. (Cortisol can drive up blood pressure and blood sugar levels and suppress the immune system.) Massage also increased serotonin and dopamine, neurotransmitters that help reduce depression."

How freaking cool is that?

I wanted to talk a little bit about that in todays' newsletter because I have been coming across many people who go through life with a gray cloud around them. And I really do like to try to help in any way that I can. If you want to read more from the article I took that from, check it out here. And if you unfortunately deal with anxiety and/or depression, or maybe you know someone that does, consider scheduling a massage to see how it can help!

Tonight's Full Moon brings Changes!

Tonight is a full moon! And it's a magnificent one!
The energy of the full moon tonight brings in opportunities for change and abundance. Everything that you have been desiring and working towards the past 6-7 months are going to start coming to fruition.

And this most definitely applies to me! As most of you know I have an intense desire to live in Hawaii. In fact, my trip there earlier this year with my sister confirmed it! Everything about their culture interests me. And if you follow me on Facebook and have read previous newsletters then you'll know what I'm talking about. (And if you didn't know, well now you do! :-D) Well, my desire to move there is starting to take shape, and I know it's going to bring about some wonderful changes within this business and within myself. I will let you in on the details as the weeks come up!

But I'd like you to use tonight's full moon energy to draw in what you've been wanting for oh so long. Take a moment before bed and look at the moon, talk to it, tell it your secrets and your wishes. And then allow life to happen. :)
