"REIKI AND CORTISOL"

High cortisol levels are strong indicators of stress. This is why cortisol is commonly known as The Stress Hormone. This makes researchers use it many times to study the effectiveness of several alternative therapies. There is evidence to think that maybe Cortisol is a very unespecific marker, and maybe not perpetually among the characteristics of the so called Relaxation Response.

DEBORAH BOWDEN, GOLDSMITHS UNIVERSITY AT LONDON
In 2009 Deborah Bowden published: “A randomised controlled single-blind trial of the effects of Reiki and positive imagery on well-being and salivary cortisol.” Her objectives were: to determine whether Reiki could be influential, above and beyond placebo and relaxation effects.

What she found were “no changes in salivary cortisol nor correlations between cortisol and mood and health changes.” And she explains why, “for while cortisol is commonly regarded as a stress hormone, an optimal level is necessary for everyday function, as evidenced by its surge on waking.”

Cortisol has its peak at the morning, but maintains a steady level during the afternoon.

THE RELAXATION RESPONSE
At the Zen and Meditation post was mentioned “the relaxation response”, a term developed by Herbert Benson, who implies the existence of an antagonistic state of the fight or flight response (this one activated by the sympathetic system). It means being physically relaxed and mentally alert at the same time. Transcendental Meditation researchers even go further and think of the relaxation response as a hypometabolic parasympathetic fourth stage of consciousness.

CORTISOL IS NEEDED FOR OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE

So a low cortisol level might not be an ideal hormonal direct short term target for Reiki research. This goes along with Diane Wardell’s study, already mentioned at the Reiki Frequencies post, where she found changes at Immunoglubin A and systolic pressure, but no changes at cortisol level. Wardell also found reduced anxiety. We might actually expect an equilibrium instead of a profound relaxation. Physically relaxed and mentally alert.

And here Bowden’s study finds the same positive effects, or maybe even more, “in addition, following Reiki there were persuasive reductions in the total Depression, Anxiety and Stress Scale,…, which were greater than in the No-Reiki group.”

"Benefits of the Ionic Footbath"
The ionic footbath offers a comfortable, relaxing way to rid the body of toxins.

Removes toxins and body waste products
Helps clear up skin issues
Helps inactivate viruses, bacteria, yeast and fungi
Assists in weight loss due to removal of toxins
Relieves headaches due to toxin removal
Improves body flexibility
Helps remove heavy metals
Increases energy levels
Helps relieve pain and tension in the body
Improves sleep quality

How the Ion Detox Foot Spa Works
You place your feet in the warm water, and within seconds, millions of ions (positively and negatively charged particles) enter your body through the soles of your feet and begin to neutralize tissue acid waste. The waste is carried out through the pores of your feet, effectively detoxifying the whole body. The particles of fat and mucous residue found in the water after bathing reflect the wastes that have left the body. This is the most gentle and most effective way to detox.

Following a series of treatments, which bring about a remarkable release of toxic materials that can be seen in the footbath water, the treated person generally experiences a sense of heightened well-being and energy enhancement. Each footbath treatment lasts 30 minutes.

The water changes color while using the bath. Each color represents something different:

Black Flakes: Heavy metals
Black/Gray Foam: Alcohol, tobacco residue
Brown/Amber: Liver, fat waste, cellular debris issues
Green: Gallbladder, kidneys, bladder, urinary or female system issues
Red: Thrombus (blood clotting), easy bruising
Yellow Green: Digestive system issues
Orange: Joint issues such as arthritis or rheumatism
White Bubbles: Lymph system overload, yeast issues.

Contact (989) 798-3177 to schedule your first session. $40/ session, $10 off each for dual session. Be Well!
