Tales of the Taoist Immortals by Eva Wong: book review by Cindy Mattingly Awesome book! Each “chapter” is short so easy to fit into a busy schedule. This is a collection of Chinese storytelling that Eva heard growing up in Hong Kong. It begins with The Eight Immortals, the most famous of the Taoist Immortals, and they are in their own section. They represent the many aspects of the Taoist spirituality. The other immortals are listed in the category for which they are best known for…….sages, magicians, diviners and alchemists. In the Taoist tradition the stories of the immortals are meant to teach as well as entertain. Would you like to meet Eva Wong? Healing Way Center [...]

Featured Modality: Myofascial Release

Myofascial Release By Peter J. van Twuyver, DPT, MPT, OCS Myofascial Release (MFR) is an osteopathic term which refers to the use of the hands for the stretching and mobilization of muscle and fascia.  The intention of MFR is to remove or “release” adhesions or restrictions in soft tissue to restore mobility and function.  Adhesions in soft tissue can occur from inactivity, trauma, and poor posture.   As it turns out, Myofascial Release has been around since 400 BC, during the time of Hippocrates.  Physicians in Greece would frequently use their own brand of myofascial techniques on wrestlers who frequently got hurt from the nature of their sport. I studied Myofascial Release as part of my Doctoral Studies at the [...]

Tse Dup or Soul Healing

Tse Dup or Soul Healing by Cindy Mattingly I never thought in a million years that I would be sharing my internal world but here I am ☺ I do not always say the things that I think and feel because they might sound corny or I am afraid of being rejected for being too “out there”.  Now, I am going to put it in writing because it matters.  It matters how we show love.  It matters how we treat each other. I want to be the person that would step up and do the right thing…..not easy. It takes courage and faith.  It takes a belief that I will be okay no matter what others think or say.  Boy, [...]

Story of the Month: Grace

By |2017-10-28T20:16:04-04:00October 13th, 2015|Story of the Month|

By: Caitlin Marino This past May our beloved family dog, a 15 year old Yorkshire Terrier named Grace, encountered a poisonous Bufo frog while in Florida with my parents. My father rushed her to the animal hospital but her outlook was poor. The vet had informed him that 90% of all dogs who encounter these frogs are dead upon arrival and those that survive are typically larger dogs. I immediately contacted Healing Way Center with the hope that the Pet Reiki practitioners could help little Gracie survive. By 2pm Grace was up and eating and she was released the next day without complication. The vet was shocked by what a swift and complete recovery Grace made. Grace bounced back from this experience and spent the next 5 months seeming happier and younger than she had been previously. I am certain that this story would have ended differently without [...]

Story of the Month: Aijah

Story of the Month: Aijah By Lynn Elzweig This is a story of little Aijah, a seven-month-old Yorkshire terrier; her owner, Maura; her owner’s mother (my friend Mo) and me.  Aijah used to live with Maura and Maura’s parents, however Maura recently moved, and her roommate had a large dog.  Normally Aijah is very friendly to people and dogs but the roommate’s dog was VERY LARGE compared to a Yorkie. Since Aijah was scared of the unfamiliar dog, Maura decided while she was not at home, Aijah should stay with Mo and Dad, Doug. They agreed to the arrangement, and Maura immediately started to bring Aijah to Mo and Doug during the day. The first day after the move, Aijah [...]

Story of the Month: Strike

Story of the Month: Strike I am a fellow Pet Reiki Practitioner with Lynn.  Our amazing journey with Reiki began this past December.  Early in the month, my cat Strike woke me up with severe vomiting.   I took him to his vet & he was hospitalized with pancreatitis for a couple of days.  When he came home, he was ok for a couple of weeks, but not himself. Then on December 21st, he woke me up again vomiting.  I took him to the vet again.  He received some IV fluids and anti-nausea medication.  He continued to deteriorate throughout the night.  I brought him back to the vet the following day for some more treatment.  By day 3, he still was [...]

Story of the Month: Kristen Guthrie

Story of the Month: Kristen Guthrie  My name is Kristen and I am the mother of two beautiful children, ages 8 and 10.   Along with my husband, we have always been an active family.  I especially love to watch my kids participate in sports such as hockey, soccer and gymnastics.  Our home is always open to friends and there is rarely a day that there aren’t at least 4 or more kids hanging out with us or getting ready to carpool to a practice or game. About a year ago I noticed that I just wasn’t feeling “right”.  I had pressure in my head and sinuses.  I often felt popping noises in my ears, along with ringing and pressure.  I [...]

Helping George

Helping George By Keri Stella, January 16, 2017 For those of you have seen my personal blogs, I’ve talked about my friend, George, before.  He’s a gorgeous, sweet, lovable cat, who also happens to be deaf and blind.  I’ve worked with him a few times over the last year, giving him reiki either where he lives or at my house, and communicating with him from a distance – among my first experiences with animal communication!  I met George, through his person, Mary Beth, who is a friend of mine at another company we both work for. So, here’s the latest story of George.  About a couple of weeks ago, Mary Beth and I sat down over coffee, and she told [...]
