Hot Off The Press from Boston Voyager Magazine

Lisa Hassett, Reiki of Greater Boston

June 12, 2017

Hello friends. Here’s a little interview I did recently where you will learn a little bit about my Healing business and what brought me here. Apologies to those who’ve already seen it on Social!

Meet Lisa Hassett of Reiki of Greater Boston in Waltham

Today we’d like to introduce you to Lisa Hassett.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I attribute Reiki & Yoga to saving my life when many years ago I began having MS like symptoms that no Dr. could seem to diagnose or treat. After suffering for 2 years without answers I decided to take things into my own hands and began a serious regime of Reiki Healing and Yoga. Because of the miraculous results I had with these methods,
I began teaching Yoga in 2001 and practicing Reiki in 2004. Continuing to offer both healing practices today along with Life Coaching, Energy Clearing and Crystal Healing allows me to access remedies for depression, stress, insomnia, autoimmune issues, etc. I also provide Reiki for Cancer patients in hospitals where side effects of medications are lessened and Reiki relaxation puts the body in a better state for healing itself.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Once you find your Life’s Purpose even struggles and bumpy roads seem easier and do not deter you from your path. Overall things have been smooth. Paying attention to

er power’s signs leads you in the right direction once you let go of the ego’s ideas of what things ‘should be like’. These are some of the things we work toward at Reiki of Greater Boston.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Reiki of Greater Boston – what should we know?
Clients usually start out with either a Reiki Healing or Yoga session and from there, depending on their needs we may add other services: Crystal Healing, Life Coaching, Energy Clearing, Meditation, Breath Work. A combination of these methods bring people to balance & health Spiritually, Emotionally and Physically. I guess you could say I specialize in overall health with a strong emphasis on emotional and spiritual.

Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
Both my Reiki teachers have been superb in teaching me the basics and guiding me to the truth. My husband of 34 years deserves lots of props for supporting me in many ways especially when I work nights, days and weekends. I think that’s it because I’m very much an introvert so I enjoy working alone without bosses and co-workers, etc.

Pricing:

  • Fees for all 1 hour services range from $60.00-$100.00

5 Simple Ideas To Celebrate Earth Day

Earth Day with Reiki of Greater Boston

Earth Day with Reiki of Greater Boston

 

To celebrate Earth Day and spring, the time of year we see the earth come to life, try one of these simple celebrations.

                     1. BUILD STONE CAIRNS

  • This can be a very meditative, healing and spiritual activity. There are lots of books and kits to help you build these prayer towers but I like to wing it.
  • I make choosing the stones part of the prayer. First find a place that feels ‘right’ to you. You can clear it and bless it, or not.
  • Begin your search for stones that speak to you. You can find them around your Cairn site or on your travels and then bring them back to your building site.
  • You can wash your stones or not and then start placing them however they look good to you.
  • Basically, through the whole process, do what feels right. Use your own creativity and intuition. You can make it as simple (just stack the stones) or complex (sing, dance, pray) as you like. Try it! It’s fun and soothing. Do you remember Silly Sand? For some reason this activity reminds me of this childhood toy.

2. HUG TREES

Trees facilitate the cleansing and revitalizing of all of the stored up negativity and stress we experience and give it a place to be absorbed. See the Book Corner Books below to learn about the magic of trees.

3. TRY A BAREFOOT WALKING MEDITATION

  • Spring is here! It’s time to take your shoes off and set your toes free!
  • Once your shoes are off, find a natural surface like grass, sand or woodland.
  • Before walking, close your eyes and take a few deep breaths relaxing all muscles and feeling the air against your skin. On your exhale imagine that all of your stress, illnesses and anything else that is not serving you is exiting your body through openings in the soles of your feet – exiting down deep into the earth and being absorbed and transmuted by mother earth.
  • Now begin taking steps as slowly as you can and continue on each exhale to release into the earth through your feet, keeping your mind’s focus on that process.
  • Once you are comfortable with that you can try moving the energy the other way: absorb the earth’s healing energies through the soles of your feet on each inhale while continuing to walk as slowly as you can.
  • Play around with these 2 processes as often as you can and you will feel the health benefits! See the book Corner Books below to learn about the earth’s healing powers.

4. PICK UP TRASH

Yes, even if you did not do the littering! It’s humanity’s folly, it’s our earth’s burden. We can help lift that burden with small actions daily.

5.  CREATE YOUR OWN PRAYER OF THANKS OR INTENTION

Recite it daily when you rise from bed and/or when you find yourself alone in nature.  Here is an example of one I created and use:

Book Corner

This book discusses the earth’s natural healing energy and how we can reconnect to it and use it to relieve and eliminate common modern day illnesses such as inflammation, autoimmune issues, stress, insomnia, etc. It’s easy!

How We Are Unknowingly Poisoning Ourselves

Dangers of so called Air Fresheners, Reiki of Greater Boston, Waltham

Dangers of so called Air Fresheners, Reiki of Greater Boston, Waltham

Carcinogens and other poisonous chemicals are hiding in the most beautiful places. I am not an alarmist but I do want to communicate some important health information.

I assume that people know these things but almost daily I am proved wrong on this front. Just this week I tried out a new ‘Boutique Style’ Gym which is quite gorgeous (and expensive!) and within 5 minutes of the class my eyes were watering, my throat was scratchy, my nose was stuffed and I had a headache. Needless to say I could not concentrate on my ab crunches or tightening my butt! As I looked around for the source of the agitation, I saw a lovely lavender colored plug-in air freshener. Are you kidding me? This room is about 10×7 ft. in area with no open windows and 5+ students sweating in there. Shouldn’t owners/managers of ‘health’ entities be aware of these basics? Yes, but they’re not so we’ve got to be vigilant in controlling our own environments.

Do you know what is in the air fresheners, candles, perfume, cleaning products, disinfectant wipes you are using? Please take a close look! Because I have some Autoimmune issues I am hyper-sensitive to these poisonous, synthetic scents and products otherwise I would be obliviously spraying and wiping along with the rest of humanity!  If exposed too long, I will begin to display symptoms of illness: sore throat, hives, tics, shaking, muscle fatigue, general fatigue, malaise, etc. It seem that this sensitivity turns out to be a blessing in disguise.

Hidden Poisons in air Fresheners, Reiki of Greater Boston, Waltham

Though you may not have obvious reactions to these chemical odors, it does not mean that they are not effecting you in a negative way.  I do not profess to be a  scientist and I don’t pretend to know all of the chemical compounds that make up these poisonous products but I’ll give you the basics and you can do your own research if you want more scientific details.

Some toxic ingredients in air fresheners are:

  • formaldehyde
  • petroleum distillates
  • dichlorobenzene
  • aerosol propellants
  • phthalates

Air Fresheners Pollute the Air, Reiki of Greater Boston, Waltham

Bottomline? These are Neurotoxins messing with your brain/nervous system as well as your reproductive system. I have quite a number of clients with fertility issues coming in for Reiki Healing and Relaxation Techniques. No amount of these healing sessions will be beneficial long term if people are going home to physically toxic environments. 

Healthier Fragrance Alternatives

Natural Alternatives to Air Fresheners, Reiki of Greater Boston, Waltham

There are plenty of safe, natural products that you can use that will not be detrimental to your health so please dispose of the poisons.

Here are some healthier ideas:

  • Soy Candles fragranced with essential oils
  • Beeswax Candles
  • Diffusers with essential oils
  • Incense
  • Sage
  • Palo Alto
  • Open the windows and let some fresh air in!
  • Add plants that absorb air pollutants: Philodendron, English ivy, spider plant, peace lily, snake plant, gerber daisies, pot mums and bamboo palm.
  • Organic/Natural AirFresheners: Mrs. Meyers Clean Day Air Freshener
  • AuraCacia Pure Aromatherapy Air Freshener: Relaxing Lavender
  • Seventh Generation Products
  • 100% Natural and Organic Perfume
  • 100% Natural and Organic Cleaning Products
  • 100% Natural and Organic Beauty Products

Just because it says ‘green’ on the label does not mean it is free of toxins. You’ve got to read the label unless you’re going with a well-known Green brand. Even then, check it out yourself. Please clean up your act! Protect your health and the health of our earth!

Got Carbohydrate Cravings? Squelch ‘Em!

How to Reduce Carb Cravings, reikiofgreaterboston, waltham

How to Reduce Carb Cravings, reikiofgreaterboston, waltham

Ooh. Don’t you hate me for posting these tempting pictures?! They’re even making me drool and I’ve been off carbs for years now. For a good part of my young adult/adult life I had intense cravings for chocolate. At some point it was totally out of control and very unhealthy so I decided to take control. You can do the same for your carb cravings! I researched, experimented and voila’ I have been craving free for 10 years! Taking Magnesium supplements was the key for me. Read on to learn about your solution(s).How to Reduce Carb Cravings, reikiofgreaterboston, waltham

 

 

 

Before you try any of the following remedies you will of course want to run it by your Doctor and make sure you are clear of more serious conditions that can also cause cravings such as hormone imbalances, hypoglycemia, diabetes, etc.

Proven Natural Remedies that Cut Carb Cravings

supplements to squelch carb cravings, reikiofgreaterboston

The Following are some natural remedies that have worked to diminish or eliminate carbohydrate cravings for me & my clients.

I recommend trying 1 at a time for at least a 2 week duration so that you will know what is working for you. (An aside: If you get bored, or frustrated experimenting with these supplements I’d say perhaps you are not quite ready for this path. Trying one of the Life Style options below may be more tolerable for you at this point.)

  1. Chromium – 600 micrograms/day
  2. Vitamin B Complex -Follow Directions from Manufacturer
  3. Magnesium – 200-300 mg/day
  4. Omega 3 – 500 mg/day
  5. Vitamin D -Follow Directions from Manufacturer
  6. Resveratrol – 100mg/day
  7. Co-Enzyme Q 10 – 100-300mg/day

Other Possible Remedies

I’m hopeful that  you will have success with the above suggestions but here are some other supplements you might look into if the above did not help you demolish the cravings demon. I have not personally worked with these but as I read about remedies that help this issue these come up repeatedly:

  • 5-Htp
  • Tryptophan
  • Glutamine
  • Lipase

Life Style Can Help Cut Cravings

In addition to trying some of these supplements it is always a good idea to do a food intake cleanse before you begin a new regime. Spring is the perfect time to try one. See this article for cleansing suggestions/information.

Employing the following Life Style choices with the supplements will support your goal to squelch the cravings:

  • Eat ‘clean’ whole foods (organic if possible): fruits, veggies, lean proteins, legumes, certain grains .
  • Exercise regularly in whatever form moves you. (pun intended).
  • Get as much sleep/rest as you can. Read here for tips to better sleep.
  • Manage stress by utilizing mind-body techniques: Reiki, Yoga, Breathing Exercises.
  • Purchase and use/wear Amethyst Crystal which helps with all addictions. (If your cravings stem from a broken heart, low self-esteem, etc. then I will recommend a different set of crystals and oils combination.)
  • Try Aromatherapy with Essential Oils Peppermint and/or Bergamot. 
  • One final thing to consider is, “What are these cravings trying to say to you?” If they stem from emotional issues in addition to chemical issues then these cravings may subside with the above attention but may get transferred over to another type of addiction. It can get complicated so it is helpful to be aware and in touch with possible emotional causes.

As with every other goal you work toward in your life, you must truly be ready and open to change and be dedicated to the journey despite the possibly bumpy road. Along with supplements, Reiki, Yoga and Life Coaching can support your work and I’m happy to help guide you on your Journey to Health with these methods!

As always, I’m happy to answer any question and please let me know if you have success with these or any other methods in curbing carb cravings.

Love, Lisa purple_heart

Romantic and Healthy Valentine Dessert, Reiki of Greater Boston, Waltham
Romantic and Healthy Valentine Dessert, Reiki of Greater Boston, Waltham

Get your fruits! Strawberries dipped in Chocolate! How romantic and a perfect way to get your dose of fruits in on Valentine’s Day.

Most fruits including strawberries offer:

  • Fiber (Helps reduce blood cholesterol levels and lower risk of heart disease, reduce constipation and diverticulosis, reduce the risk obesity, and type 2 diabetes.
  • Vitamin A (Supports the immune system, skin health, cell growth, bone growth, reproduction and good vision.)
    Vitamin C (Strawberries have more vitamin C per ounce than citrus fruits! Vitamin C is important for growth and repair of all body tissues, helps heal cuts and wounds, and keeps teeth and gums healthy.
  • Folic Acid/Folate (DNA synthesis and repair)
  • Low Calorie
  • Low Fat
  • Low Sodium
  • No cholesterol

Change it up and try Apricots dipped in Chocolate to get a dose of Potassium as well. Diets rich in potassium help to maintain healthy blood pressure and bone mass and reduce the risk of developing kidney stones.

Now add a bit of dark chocolate and you get:
More antioxidants through flavonoids (reduce the risk of stroke and heart attack) Chocolate is also rich in minerals, including calcium, iron, zinc and potassium and vitamin E, vitamin A and B vitamins.
And, as you may have heard, Chocolate sends pleasure signals to the brain that will help with any Winter Blues and may put you in an amorous state. Perfect!
