Each year, breast cancer will take the lives of roughly 40,000 American women. Fortunately, reduction in the use of hormone replacement therapy, treatment advances, and early detection through screening have helped reduce the mortality rate. Early detection, though, is a reactive tool at best; it is not prevention. Women know that they deserve better, and they are now aware that they must take more than just their breasts into their own hands— they must take all of their health matters into their own hands.

April has been designated nationally as Oral Cancer Awareness Month. This cancer affects 37,000 Americans a year. Oral cancers are also labeled head and neck cancers and include such structures as the tonsils, tongue ,nose , cheek, parotid and the larynx (voice box). When found in the early stage, these cancers can be curable.

Reiki is an energy/spiritual healing modality that enhances well-being by helping to bring balance into the body, mind, and spirit.  Using light touch, anyone can learn Reiki to reduce symptoms, like fatigue, pain, nausea and insomnia as well as improve quality of life.  Reiki uses the life force within us and around us to provide an environment for healing.
