What Is a Reiki Therapist

What Is a Reiki Therapist? This is a common question for those seeking more information about Reiki energy healing.

Reiki is often described as energy healing therapy. Energy healing therapies are based on the belief that if there are disturbances in the energy fields in and around the body it can result in illness, depression and low self esteem. It is believed that improving the flow and balance of energy can improve health and well being within the body.

For a Reiki Therapist or sometimes referred to as a Reiki Practitioner to practice they must be trained and attuned by a Certified Master Teacher level Reiki Therapist. Reiki, is typically learned in three or four levels or degrees. Training for each level typically takes one to three days depending on the level being learned.

Each level involves an “attunement” by a Certified Reiki Therapist. An attunement involves the placement of energetic Reiki symbols through a sequence of meditation and movements to the crown, palms, heart and third eye of the student to prepare the student’s body to channel Reiki energy.

“We don’t consider ourselves healers, because the body is it’s own healer. Reiki just facilitates the body’s own ability to heal itself.

Reiki is based on the idea that energy is transmitted through the Reiki therapist from a universal energy source to the client to raise or improve the flow and vibration of the client’s life-force energy. The Reiki Therapist may also remove negative energy from the client by acting as a conduit for this energy.

I always include a Chakra clearing with my sessions. I believe that when negative energy gets stuck in our energy centers it can lower our vibrational energy which in turn can create patterns that keep us stuck and cause us to repeat the same actions over and over. Clearing out the Chakra energy centers can raise up your vibrational energy by removing stagnant energies and emotional blockages that you are holding you back from living a healthier, more fulfilling and positive life.

In Home Personal Training

In Home Personal Training vs. Private Studio Personal Training?

This is one of the most frequently asked questions that I am asked when I speak to a potential client for the first time. There are many reasons to choose an In Home Personal Training program and one of the biggest is convenience. A personal trainer can come to your home for a personalized, functional and efficient workout. Whether you are training for a marathon, dropping the baby weight, recovering from surgery, toning up for your wedding or just looking to kick start a new fitness routine and healthy lifestyle, a certified and experienced personal trainer will get you results, hold you accountable, teach and guide you through an effective in home workout in the comfort of your own home and on your clock!

In-Home Personal Training is a great opportunity for people who do not enjoy the gym setting, may be a little self conscious of their body and weight but have the desire to get in shape. Many think they need expensive fitness equipment, which actually can be very basic or have all the bells and whistles, a good workout does not require machines and heavy weights! Fitness bands, light weights, a core ball, your attendence, motivation, your personal fitness goals and an experienced personal trainer are all that is required to get the results you want.

Private studio training is great if you do not have any equipment at all and just want to get up and out of the house, get to the gym, work out, take your shower and get on with your day! In Studio Personal Training sessions have a set price for each session and while In-Home Personal Training sessions have a base price too, they are also priced according to location.

Whatever you choose, a good fitness routine starts with the guidance and expertise of a certified personal trainer, your goals, dedication and willingness to change your current lifestyle to a healthy, fit life that will benefit you for many years to come.

We offer studio personal training in Ridgewood NJ or the privacy of your home gym. The choice is yours!

Yummy, Healthy, Watermelon!

Yummy, Healthy, Watermelon!

It is that time of the year again! Watermelon Season! Sweet, juicy and packed with healthy benefits. Watermelon is one of my absolute favorites!

The health benefits of watermelon are plenty, it packs a punch of vitamins A and C and has a good amount of vitamin B6, potassium and magnesium just to name a few.

Vitamin A – for optimal healthy eyes, it boosts your immune system by enhancing the infection-fighting actions of white blood cells called lymphocytes.

Vitamin B6 – helps your immune system produce antibodies, these antibodies are needed to fight off many diseases. Vitamin B6 helps maintain normal nerve function and form red blood cells.

Vitamin C – helps to boost your immune system’s defenses against infections and viruses, and protects your body from harmful free radicals that can accelerate aging and eye conditions such as cataracts. Vitamin C helps keep your skin young, hydrated and healthy too!

Just two cups of watermelon is a great source of potassium, potassium is a mineral necessary for water balance and is found inside every cell in your body. People that have low potassium levels often experience muscle cramps. Ever get those leg cramps that wake you up at night? Try eating watermelon or a banana daily!

My favorite way to eat watermelon, is to put it in the blender and make a watermelon water, just cube it and blend, it is healthy, refreshing and filling too. You can also make it with cucumber and a splash of lemon too, either way it is refreshing and healthy.

Pick the ripest and sweetest watermelon with these tips:

*Look for a firm, symmetrical watermelon that is free from bruises, cuts or dents.

*The watermelon should be a bit heavy for it’s size, watermelon is 92% water and most of that weight is water.

*The bottom of the watermelon should have a beige/yellow colored spot from where it grew on the ground and ripened in the sunshine.

Have a great summer and be sure to go to the local farmer’s markets in your area and enjoy all the fresh produce of the season!
