Health and Wellness

What are the top five health concerns up to date? There’s Heart Disease, Cancer, Osteoporosis, Depression, and Autoimmune Diseases.If you’ve been seriously ill before, you have probably looked at all kinds of ways to heal the body. There are ways that are medicinally induced, but there is also alternative healing. If you’ve ever looked into alternative healing, whether it be for something serious or not, you should have found that there are several ways to help reduce the pain from whatever you may be dealing with

Of course, if you have read other blogs and articles from Whispering Willows, you may be a little more informed on therapies such as Reiki, Reflexology, Hypnosis, and so on. But what you may not know is that there is such a thing as emotional healing. One thing that people may not remember when they are looking to regain some health, is that you cannot just heal yourself from one aspect. Just using medicine to heal yourself may place you in an incomplete transition to being healthy again. Those that are looking for a holistic way to heal their body, mind and soul look to alternative therapies for help.

         So, what can healing your emotional health mean for your overall wellness? Well, knowing how to deal with things like stress, anxiety and sadness are all ways of healing your emotions. Every single day we encounter new news about our family, friends, and even ourselves that may harm our emotions. This emotional harm may have the ability to cause even physical pain, which brings us back to why it is so important to take the time to mend your mind and spirit, so that you can stay holistically healthy.

So what can you do to maintain emotional health in order to maintain whole-body health? There are many things, but some quick suggestions include: figuring out what’s been bothering you and dealing with it; express your feelings in an appropriate manor; look to treatments like Reiki that help you deal with emotions; don’t focus on what’s bringing you down, but rather look at the positive and manifest more positivity into your life; calm your mind and body; and lastly, take care of yourself! Do not take the easy way out and just focus on one way of healing. Rather, take the time to achieve a holistic health so that you can be the best you!

Sciatica and Reflexology

Reflexology can be used to heal many things. It uses the pressure points located in your feet to help heal different body parts from head to toe. As your feet contain pressure points to all main parts of the body, it is the perfect way to help relieve stress and pain that may be experienced throughout the entire body. As many of us already know and experience, as we age so does our body and joints. Reflexology can be used to help relieve that type of physical pain, but it can also be used to help heal more serious conditions such as sciatica.

What is sciatica? This condition is caused by any pain that stems from the sciatic nerve, which can extend anywhere from your back right down to above your knee. Any damage that is done to the sciatic nerve, whether it is mild or severe, can cause sciatica to appear. There are both short and long-term sciatic conditions, but both have the capability to cause a lot of pain.

What most people don’t know is that reflexology has been quite successful in relieving its clients of sciatica for quite some time now. Sciatica debilitates your body through a series of muscle contractions. The more your muscles contract the more pain you are going to experience, and unfortunately muscle contraction acts kind of like a chain reaction. If one muscle begins to contract, it may follow by many more.

When this happens, many people may find that there is no such medication that helps. Some suffer for months and months and can even be woken up by pain in the night. The reason that reflexology is able to help on such a level is because it allows the body and your muscles to relax so that it may heal itself. Putting pressure on certain points in the foot, for example your heel and toes, acts as a natural muscle relaxant, and the pain is instantly relieved by some degree. Depending on how severe your sciatica may be, you could even see a full recovery, but for others it may take more than just one treatment. The constant relaxant of your muscles is what will prevent the pain (or at least some measure of it) from coming back. So, if you’re looking for some quick muscle relief, or any kind of bodily relief for that matter, I would strongly recommend reflexology.

This is my first blog.  I have decided to dedicate this blog to talk about healing. To share what I can with as many people as possible to make a difference in the world.  This could be any type of healing, eg. Spiritual healing, energetic healing, holistic healing, motivation techniques, crystal uses, and a ton of information things from the basics such as grounding and centering to even more advanced techniques with home cleansings, and cord cutting!

I am a Reiki Master, Certified Reflexologist, Consulting Hypnotist, Past Life Regression Facilitator and owner of metaphysical shop called Whispering Willows.

I will share stories of how some of the modalities of what I do and how it has benefited others.

Today I choose to talk about Reiki.  It has allowed me to be able to relax more and get in tune with my higher self. It has been so fulfilling to be able to assist others on their healing journey. It has changed my life for the better.  I have learned that dedicated self treatment is invaluable.  Self care is self love.  It has brought me to a place of forgiveness for myself and others.  And with all of this, I am very grateful to be able to be a channel for healing.  As a teacher, I have had the joy in watching many of my students blossom as well.


Reiki is a healing modality using hands on or off healing technique that is safe and gentle. It can be used on either yourself or others. With Reiki you use Universal life force energy to help remove blockages that may be physical, emotional or spiritual so that the body may heal itself. It can also help with spiritual awareness and growth.  It is without the use of pressure, manipulation or massage.

Sometimes when people ask me about Reiki, I get this look on their face and a smirk Reiki with a oooooo… as if Reiki is hokey, but recently, I have found an interesting article on the fact that Reiki has been scientifically proven on what it can do for the body.


In the end, it’s about what you believe to be true for yourself. But, if you or others around have not experienced a Reiki treatment, I strongly recommend it. Not only can you feel a physical difference after leaving the treatment, but it is a phenomenal way to relax and free yourself of daily stresses. And who doesn’t like a little personal time?
