Generalized anxiety disorder is a potentially debilitating condition that affects millions of people all across the globe. In fact, according to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, generalized anxiety disorder currently affects 3.1 percent of the U.S. population. Treatments for generalized anxiety disorder vary but often include medication and psychotherapy. Some people struggling with this condition have also added Reiki to their treatment plan in hopes of improving symptoms further.
Reiki & Quantum Touch are my personal go to methods on the forefront of Anxiety & Addiction Issues. Why? Because they both treat the human as a whole system of intergrated parts. Meaning we have a physical body, a mental body, an emotional body and a spiritual body that are all interconnected and feed into and off of each other. An energetic inbalance in any one of these fields will absulutely affect the whole.
Facts about Generalized Anxiety Disorder
People with generalized anxiety disorder deal with excessive and unrealistic worry about everyday issues, including their family, health or financial situation. This worry is persistent and difficult to control. In many cases, people with this condition feel a sense of impending doom even when there is no reason to believe that something bad will happen. For most people, this disorder appears gradually over time. It is more common in women than in men and tends to peak after childhood. While many people are able to manage their symptoms and lead a relatively normal life, severe anxiety can sometimes make it difficult to carry out everyday responsibilities or function in social situations.
An individual is diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder after he or she has spent at least six months dealing with symptoms on a regular basis.
Some of the specific symptoms of generalized anxiety disorder may include:
• Trouble sleeping
• Tense muscles
• Tiring easily
• Feeling restless or on edge
• Trouble concentrating
Once an individual has been diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder, their physician may prescribe various medications to control symptoms, including tricyclic antidepressants, benzodiazepines, serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. Physicians may also recommend different types of therapy, including interpersonal therapy, exposure therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy and acceptance and commitment therapy.
THERE IS A PROVEN NATURAL APPROACH WITHOUT SIDE EFFECTS!!
Energy Healing is a therapeutic technique thousands of years old. The idea behind this technique is that, generally, problems and issues within the human body, including unnatural levels of anxiety, may be related to blockages or disturbances in the individual’s energy pathways. Reiki & Quantum Touch unblock congested/stuck energy and restore normal flow in order to support the body’s ability to heal itself.
Benefits of Reiki or Quantum Healing for People with GAD
Studies have shown that Reiki and QT® offer several potential benefits for people with generalized anxiety disorder. Some of these benefits include:
Lower stress levels
People with generalized anxiety disorder have higher stress levels than the normal population. Both research studies and anecdotal reports indicate that Reiki may assist to alleviate some of this stress.
Having generalized anxiety disorder makes it difficult to relax even when no significant stressor is present. Many people who participate in Reiki sessions report feeling relaxed both during the session and after it is complete, which may be beneficial to someone who struggles with anxiety.
Not every person who has been diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder will experience depression. However, for many people, these two issues go hand-in-hand. Research indicates that people who participate in Reiki sessions on a regular basis feel less depressed than they did prior to therapy.
People with generalized anxiety disorder may find that they have trouble falling asleep, are unable to stay asleep or don’t feel rested even after sleeping all night. Reiki sessions may alleviate some of these issues and improve the quality of sleep.
Reiki can be used in conjunction with virtually any other treatment prescribed by a physician, including medication and other types of therapy.
Reiki helps people feel better.
Multiple research studies have been conducted to explore the relationship between Reiki and anxiety disorders. Some of these studies are detailed below.
Reiki reduces anxiety among women
In 2006, researchers published a study that sought to determine whether Reiki could reduce anxiety among women undergoing hysterectomies. The researchers found that women in the treatment group experienced less anxiety than those in the control group. Although this study was conducted only on women undergoing surgery, the results may apply to other individuals as well.
Reiki helps with anxiety and fatigue in cancer patients
Another study conducted in Turkey focused on the ability of Reiki treatment to reduce anxiety, pain and fatigue among cancer patients. The researchers found that all of these variables improved among subjects in the group treated with Reiki. Because both anxiety and fatigue are symptoms of generalized anxiety disorder, it stands to reason that Reiki could potentially be helpful for people with this condition as well.
Reiki reduces depression and anxiety among older adults
During this study, researchers sought to determine whether treating older adults with Reiki would improve depression, anxiety and other issues. The researchers found that individuals in the treatment group experienced less anxiety and depression than those in the control group. Participants in the study also reported feelings of relaxation following Reiki sessions.
These are just a few of the research studies that demonstrate the ability of Reiki to benefit individuals who are struggling with anxiety. More research studies exploring this idea are likely to be conducted in the future.
Research studies indicate that Reiki shows promise as an alternative therapy for people struggling with generalized anxiety disorder. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder, you may benefit from participating in Reiki sessions on a regular basis.

Just as a massage therapist must know human anatomy, physiology and energy flow, a sound practitioner must become familiar with the properties and use of vibration rates (hertz), sound and energy and the different methods of application to avoid undesireable effects.
To understand how medical grade sound bowls actually work on the body and mind, imagine a human body from within. It is made up of different systems, each consisting of a group of organs (heart/lungs/skin) with each organ composed of tissues. These tissues are made up of cell groups, which are made up of molecules that consist of atoms.
Each atom, cell, tissue and organ in the body has a natural vibrational frequency. When this frequency is not in balance, the system does not work properly, which produces sickness or discomfort on a mental, physical, energetic and/or spiritual level. If we rebalance this frequency, we are able to restore health at any of these levels. The vibrations produced by sound bowls can alter the vibrational frequencies of the body, reinstating health and well being.
Different sound bowls and methods to use them target specific levels of the human organism. Some bowls are made for physical effects while others focus on energy centers, mental or emotional states.
Playing the bowls without any specific intention or insight is like performing a massage without any knowledge of human anatomy, physiology or pathology. While a Tibetan Sound Bowl Massage without a foundation can be very relaxing, its effects are superficial.
Sound Waves move almost 5 times faster through water than air, and since the body is between 70 and 80% water, it is an excellent transporter of sound and vibrations. Sound vibrations affect each system, organ, tissue, cell and atom of the body, stimulating blood and lymphatic circulation, increasing relaxation of the fascia, muscles and tendons and improving the functioning of each organ and the body in general. At this level, the sound vibrations produce similar effects as a hands on massage but penetrate much deeper into the skin, muscles, bones and organs, moving through the body with no difficulty.
Sound vibration opens the energy channels (meridian system) fostering the free flow of energy throughout the body. As a trained Medical Massage Therapist, I use specific bowls on the meridian system in general and specific acupuncture points, depending on what pathology the client has presented with.
I recently added a gong to my sound sessions where the client lays on the floor cushion. Brain entrainment is a common result of Sound Bowl Therapy and the stronger vibrations of a hand hammered deeper pitched gong seem to penetrate and balance the hemispheres of the brain quickly.
Part 2: What are these Brain Waves: Gamma vs Beta vs Alpha vs Theta vs Delta?

Very pleased to debut my new name & logos for this page. My focus going forward is less Medical Massage and more Energy Healing, Vibrational Sound Therapy and Telepathic Animal Communication.
I will be once again holding regular Tibetan Tones® GROUP Sound Bowl sessions with my 18 Therapeutic Grade bowls & symphonic gong every other Wednesday starting March 6th in our beautiful loft at Eastern Sun Holistic Health Center in Southold as well as offering Sound Bowl Massage on the table, Energy Healing and Medical Massage Mondays, Tuesdays & Thursdays.
This year I celebrate 24 years in the field of Energy Healing as a practitioner and teacher. My studies and Certifications include Usui Reiki Master Teacher®, Quantum Touch®, Earth & Universal Life Force Energy practitioner. The work I do is based on Quantum Science and is not affiliated with any religion.
This year I will be adding videos to my blog and social media sites about Telepathic Animal Communication. As this field is increasingly finding support and acceptance as a skill that can easily be developed with practice I will be making instructional videos this year and try to find time to teach more classes in more locations.

Islip Horsemans Association will be featuring me as a guest speaker for their October 23rd open meeting being held at the Bohemia Rec Center in Bohemia.
A fun evening of Education awaits! I will start with basic information about what Animal Communication is and how you already do it. Then I will teach how to do grounding and running Energy up through your body and out your hands so you may start using this form of hands on healing immediately for your self and your animals, then open the floor for your questions on any issues related to how better to communicate with your animals in relation to training or life in general.
Contact me directly with any questions or for clarification.

It is my experience that there are two reasons people do not admit that they communicate Telepathically.
First; single people have a reluctance to admit they have an ability that may set them apart from others around them. People like to fit in and not "seem weird". Couples like to keep their non verbal communication skills private so they can use them freely in public.
Second; People do not understand that they ARE communicating with their Animals or Friends.
When I speak publicly about Animal Communication now, I add in examples of how Humans regularly communicate with each other Telepathically. Couples and close friends readily admit, and sometimes brag about, their secret, non verbal communication between them. It quantifies how close or in-sync they are. Yet the concept that this applies to interspecies relationships as well is met with blank stares. Wait, ADMIT I understand what my dog is saying?
What will that mean for me after I do that? The answer is Everything! The answer is NOTHING!!
It may mean everything because when you acknowledge that you have a skill developed to the point that it CAN BE acknowledged as a skill then you have owned it.
It can also mean nothing because the more we use skills inherent to us, the less "special" they become. They loose that shiney new aspect and just become a part of who we are everyday.
So admit it and get on with life.

I had an appointment yesterday that I feel would benefit any person relocating with animals.
This particular session involved dogs being left here, with family, and a horse that would be relocating with his owner.
First, the dogs. Client was concerned that not being able to take the dogs would create hurt feelings and possible abandonment issues. While she was explaining the situation both dogs jumped in immediately with their views. They were not concerned, in the least, as they felt their "home & people" were actually with the parents. Yes, they loved her and enjoyed her company very much, both dogs were quite adament that their place was here and that they had clearly defined jobs with the parents. One was quite vocal in talking about his "job" in being with the dad and then explained why in detail, most of which I explained out loud to the family, but much that I did not as the dog went into explicit detail about his relationship "with his dad" that would not have been appropiate to share with the females present.
Second was the horse that would be relocating with his mom. He is 20 so did not have any fear issues about what was going to happen, like a young horse would, just concerns.
What exactly would the travel arrangements be, how long would it take, would he be able to get off the trailer whenever it stopped, would there be food and water during the trip, would he know anyone doing the traveling with him, would he be traveling with other horses or alone (he had an option here and what constituted his preference was quite informative) when would he see his mom again, what would their life be like there, what size would his living & grazing spaces be, what would the general makeup of age ranges be with the new horses. He also had recommendations for his mom in how they could communicate with each other while they were separated, particularly to make the separation easier on HER
At the end of the session both mom and horse felt much more confident and at ease with the whole situation because they now both clearly understood what the plan was. Animals ALWAYS want to know the plan!
Hopefully this serves as a general education for people in how their animals view this kind of situation

This is such a fun example of how a simple conversation can help define an experience.
Kristen is taking Bo (very young horse) to a horse show and Bo had questions that I thought were worth sharing in a blog because they struck me as concerns that would be universal in nature, that any young horse might have prior to an event.
His questions: Would be coming back to his own bed tonight, would there be anything in/around the ring that will be scary, will there be any horses just running around free that may try to come after him, will it be fun?
When I asked Kristen if these questions made sense to her, she answered yes and explained.
Question 1: He is asking this because the last time I took him away to an event we ended up not coming home that night.
Question 2: He is looking for possibilities here. Like in his own sand ring at home, there is a corner where birds can fly out from shrubbery. I had gone online and looked at photos of the ring and Kristen knew what it looked like so we were able to picture in our minds what the place looked like and "take" him there visually so he could also see the layout.
Question 3: We witnessed a horse previously that was being warm up lunged, get away from it's handler and start running all over. Bo is wondering if that will be happening again and should there be concern.
Question 4: This was interesting to me because what he was actually asking was; Is this very serious and are we going to get in trouble if I do something wrong? Kristen explained that while this is a competition, it is also mostly a fun learning experience for both of them because they both have tools of communication now, between them, that allow them both to understand that there can be seriousness and focus in effort, while maintaining fun as an overall experience. As Bo likes to say about Dressage "Lets dance mom"
End of story: Bo returned to his own bed that night, they had a blast and were great dance partners and there are 3 new ribbons (2 blues & an overall) for somebodys stall!

I love that people are getting on the bandwagon about speaking truth to power. I hope to see this extend to the Animal World in a bigger way this year.
What do I mean? Be willing to educate people in the Animal Industry about people (like myself & thousands of others) who hold Certification as Animal Communicators. We, who took the time to study long and hard with experts in the Industry, then went out and volunteered our time to gain practical experience before putting ourselves out there in a professional manner.
We, and I speak for all Animal Communicators worldwide, who are willing to put ourselves out there on a daily basis, where we are mocked & rediculed by the uneducated both to our faces and behind our backs, deserve better.
We, who are willing to be on the front lines of education in raising awareness about the human-animal relationship, often in areas where those in the Animal Rescue and Animal Medical fields shun us publicly. We understand who we threaten and why, when we give ACTUAL voice to Animals.
When your Animal Professional is telling you they know what is best for your pet PLEASE, BE WILLING to ask them HOW they know for sure what they are telling you is true? Ask them if they have ever had a session with a Certified Animal Communicator? If the answer is no, ask them why not? If their answer is "oh I do not believe that stuff is real" ask them if they will be educating themselves in spite of their beliefs because THAT would actually be in the animals best interest.
YOU do not have to believe in what I do, it IS real anyway!
From now on when people, who are uneducated in this field, challenge me to "prove" what I am doing is "real" my response is going to be "NO, you prove to ME Animal Communication is NOT possible".
Lets stop the ignorance together
