Dominicks attitude key to his recovery.  He turned inwards, he remained positive and determined and very calm & centered throughout the whole ordeal knowing he would come out ok.  After more surgeries and PT and continued TP and massage Dom eventually recovered and walks normally, can run (they said he never would) and has almost full range of motion in all limbs.  To look at him today you would never know he had been through such a traumatic accident.

    Dynamic Dojo Talkradio: Guro Rocky R. Twitchell

    in Sports

    Sunday May 3rd, 2015. 6:00 pm Pacific Time.


    (Full bio http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Rocky_Twitchell_SR.)


    With a background in various arts, in Rocky R. Twitchell's early years he studied under a Savate Instructor named Shane Milone'.Taking Rogh & Tumble Savate to stop bieng picked on by bullies at High School was his main reason for taking the lessons given by Shane Milone', but those Savate lessons would be the foundation for many other Instructors in the years to come. Once Rocky learned a few concepts from the Art of Savate, (basically just stand up to the bullies) they would eventully leave him alone. By his Junior year in High School he had the confidence to stand up for himself and he had the confidence to stand up for others if they were picked on by bullies. Portola High School, located in Portola CA also had boxing during Physical Education once a year and his skills from Savate plus the boxing from P.E., planted a seed in his mind that would slowly grow to training along side World Boxing Champions and World Class Martial Arts Instructors.Graduating from Portola High School he found himself living and training with his father Rocky H. Twitchell in Southern Utah. Once he moved in with his father and found a place to hang his punching bag the rest was History.

    Violet Reiki Radio - Reiki and Caregivers

    in Health

    The Caregiver  

    When a loved one becomes chronically or terminally ill, it is the primary caregiver that often becomes the silent sufferer,  experiencing a sense of exhaustion,  frustration, hopelessness and despair and what has been called "caregiver burn-out".    

    What IF there was a way to give a caregiver the ability to provide Reiki for themselves and their sick, injured  or dying loved one?  It has been documented that Reiki can provide emotional and mental calm, stress reduction, and physical comfort (pain reduction).   

    Reiki can therefor support both the primary caregivers who care for their loved one and the chronically or terminally ill patient.  Having the ability to give Reiki to those who are chronically or terminally ill can empower the caregiver and relieve them of the feeling of helplessness which can be very common in such situations.
