Reiki In a Hospital Setting

Written by Michele Anderson, Reiki Master Teacher and Practitioner.

If  you’ve watched television or listened to the radio lately, chances are you’ve heard an advertisement for a pharmaceutical product or medical treatment.  We have become a nation accustomed to popping pills for everything from anxiety to arthritis.   And while traditional medicine is a necessary part of combating illness, some individuals are seeking alternate forms of treatment.  One alternative therapy is Reiki, an ancient Japanese technique for relaxation and stress reduction which also promotes healing.  While not intended for diagnosis or treatment of disease, Reiki can be utilized to complement and even augment traditional Western medicine.

A World Without Desks

Written by Danny Singles, PT, DPT, MA.

I'm cramped in a New Jersey transit train seat like it's a sardine can. The train home from NYC is packed with a holiday weekend crowd. Some of them are returning Santas from SantaCon -- my personal favorite Santa sighting was a portly young man who was running down the street in Santa pants, boots, and hat while yelling into his cell phone. Somewhere along his inebriated meandering, he lost his shirt and was content to race through the 35 degree December weather while half naked. Ah, New York is a magical place at the holidays. Besides the people watching, the department store window displays and the Rockefeller Tree are personal favorites of mine.

While in NYC this weekend, we walked everywhere. Sure, the walking was punctuated with an occasional subway ride and lots of momentary pauses to look at rollerblading drunk Santas, but we were in NYC so we walked. How else to take in the sights?

Recently, we received a mysterious box sitting on the front stoop of our home. The box was tall but relatively narrow, stamped with the Brooklyn Bedding logo
