Each Woman I Serve Is Like A Daughter To Me

So, what is this Doula thing that so many pregnant women speak of? 

The word ‘Doula’ — pronounced ‘doo-la’ — is a Greek word meaning ‘woman servant or caregiver’.

More recently, it refers to someone who offers emotional and physical support to a woman and her partner before, during and after childbirth.


A Doula (also known as a birth attendant) believes in ‘mothering the mother’.


A Doula is a professional trained in childbirth who provides emotional, physical, and educational support to a mother who is expecting, is experiencing labor, or has recently given birth. The doula’s purpose is to help women have a safe, memorable, and empowering birthing experience. Her goal is to enable a woman and her partner to have the most satisfying birth experience possible, from pregnancy and into motherhood.


DONA (Doulas of North America) explains how Doulas fit into the birth team:

“Women have complex needs during childbirth. In addition to the safety of modern obstetrical care, and the love and companionship provided by their partners, women need consistent, continuous reassurance, comfort, encouragement and respect. They need individualized care based on their circumstances and preferences. The role of the birth doula encompasses the non-clinical aspects of care during childbirth.”

Reiki

During the Holistic Reiki Healing Therapy Treatment, the client lies fully clothed on a reiki massage table in a relaxed state. Meditative Music is played as the Reiki energy is lovingly and compassionately delivered by healing hands on or over areas of the body that are major energy centers called “chakras” and allows the Universal Reiki energy to flow freely to unblock any blockages and allow Chakra Balancing. This is performed on both front and back. Expecting mothers lay on their side to allow access to the back chakras.

Reiki for Animals

     As humans we are continually searching for more effective and less toxic ways of promoting healing and wellness in our own bodies. Animals can also suffer from painful conditions like chronic pain, anxiety, depression, and other problematic health issues just like we do. The same holistic alternatives to healing that we use can be used with our animals. One of these is called animal reiki.


What is Animal Reiki?


     Reiki (pronounced “ray-key”) is the ancient holistic practice of hands-on healing. It originated in Japan and has been used for centuries to provide proven, non-invasive healing for a variety of conditions.


     During a reiki session on an animal, the practitioner channels healing energy through her hands directly or indirectly to the animal through light touch. This channeling of “universal life energy” from practitioner to patient helps increase the sick animal’s life energy, which is usually diminished as a result of its illness.


     With the natural increase in its life energy provided by the practitioner, the animal is made more comfortable and better able to heal. A typical animal reiki session lasts between 15 and 30 minutes.
