Welcome Our Latest Advertiser: Reiki By Anita!
The B-Town Blog is proud welcome our newest Advertiser: Reiki By Anita!Â Sheâ€™s located right here in Burien.
â€œIt is my community and I want to practice in my community. Reiki is my calling and my passion, and has been for 22 years,â€ owner Anita Graham explained to us last week.
Anita started her study and practice of Reiki in 1987 and became a Reiki Master in 2006. She learned in the tradition of the Usui System of Reiki Healing (called Usui Shiki Ryoho in Japanese).
Now she can not only work on her partner, Monty, her cat, her friends, her family, her clients, but also lead Reiki classes for those looking for a way to offer hands on healing for family, friends, pets and themselves. She is pleased to announce her summer classes:
- FIRST DEGREE REIKI CLASSES:
- June 13 & June 14, 2009
- July 18 & July 19, 2009
- August 22 & August 23,2009
All classes will be held Saturday and Sunday from 10am â€“ 5pm both days.
The class is an accessible way for massage therapists, body workers, nurses and other health care professionals to enhance their practice with this gentle, non-invasive modality, as well. For more information and to register contact Anita at (206) 242-2052 or click here. The classes are held in Burien, and space is limited so you’d better act now.
Anita Graham is approved by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) as a continuing education (approved Provider Number 450604-08).
Anita started her journey towards Reiki while working in the health and human services world. Sheâ€™s been a social worker, therapist, college counselor and her favorite– working with seniors in the field of Geriatric mental health. She still works with elders in her job and volunteer work in and around the south sound.
MultiCare-Good Samaratin Hospital in Pierce Co. and our own Highline Medical Center employ Anita in their Home Health and Hospice â€œComfort Therapies Program.” As an adjunct position to the staff Anita visits hospice patients in their home where she uses Reiki to help them relax, reduce anxiety and relieve pain.
She also volunteers at Highline Medical Center where she works with surgery patients in post-op. Reiki helps ease anxiety, stress and pain with post-op patients. A major report about Reiki treatments for surgery patients at Portsmouth Regional Hospital in Portsmouth New Hampshire indicated that they often leave the hospital earlier, in less pain and with less pain medication (see Dr. Andrew Weilâ€™s Self-Healing Newsletter, April, 2006).
â€œI feel that Iâ€™m one of the luckiest people in the world. I am so fortunate that I can give comfort to people. Reiki has given me a way to be of service in the world, said Anita.
I felt like one of the luckiest people in the world last week when Anita suggested a complimentary 30-minute Reiki session in her home Reiki Studio*. Talk about your soft touch. I wanted to totally relax and float away, but I was on the jobâ€”interviewing and talking.
*Reiki By Anita offers a series of four treatment sessions of 1-1/2 hours EACH at $70 each. She recommends that all four treatments take place in seven-10 days when starting a treatment for chronic conditions, such as fibromyalgia. The National Institute of Healthâ€™s National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine is funding a study on Reikiâ€™s ability to reduce fibromyalgia symptoms, such as fatigue.
Anita believes the best way to learn what Reiki is about is to experience it. And the best way to experience it in Burien and surrounding area is with Anita, at Reiki By Anita.
