Editor's Note from Carolyn White: Are your 'stressed out?' Stress is a form of energy. If you pay attention to this energy, it alerts you to take action. If you ignore stress, i.e. become desensitized to this energy, it negatively impacts your well-being. Amanda Gore helps you figure out if you are stressed out. Being aware of how stressful energies impact your body and behavior is the first step in living a more balanced, health life.

Gua Sha is a traditional technique in the East done by clinicians or by the common person in their home as either self-care or for the care of a family member. It is a technique of using a rounded-edged tool to rub the skin in order to bring to the surface “Sha.” Sha is thought to be stagnant blood in the superficial layers of tissue that can lead to pathological disturbances. Raising the Sha to the surface is thought to release the stagnant blood, thus improving circulation and energy flow through the area.

People want to work with you because of the work that you do with your mind and your hands. That much is obvious. What’s less obvious, however, is that they also want to work with you because of the work that you’ve done on yourself emotionally and spiritually. That’s because many clients tend to see their healer as one who helps them relieve their own stress. The last thing a client wants is a stressed-out therapist or healer...

Editor's Note from Lexi Yoga: Depression is a common problem these days, and yoga is a great way to help improve your mood. The increase in physical effort, together with the controlled breathing and then period of relaxation, will help lower your heart rate and blood pressure, which in turn will reduce the stress response.
Editor's Note from Melanie Channell: Using crystals in Reiki healing sessions can enhance the healing experience by helping to dissolve blocked energy and infusing energy in to the body. Reiki and crystal healing can aid in clearing our auras, relieving stress, and balancing our energy system.
