Relax and feel the new energy float through your body

In alternative medicine, Reiki is a treatment in which healing energy is channeled from the practitioner to the patient to reduce stress, pain and fatigue. After Reiki sessions, clients often mention that they feel relaxed, calm, peaceful, more centered, better able to focus and more energetic.

Reiki has its roots in Tebetan, Chinese, Indian, Egyptian, Japanese and Roman cultures.  The word Reiki is composed of two syllables Rei and Ki.  Reimeans universal, it is always there, available for everybody to tap into. Ki is the energy that sustains life. Life force plays an important role in everything we are and do.  If life force is low, or if it is restricted, one is more vulnerable to illness.  When it is high and flowing freely, a person is less likely to get sick, but instead feels good about himself/herself, and the tasks at hand are welcomed with zest and creativity.

Have you been recently diagnosed with or are currently going through treatment for breast cancer? Are you a breast cancer survivor? Many women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer feel alone and that no one in their personal support circle can truly understand what they are going through.

Our Self-Help Groups are a safe haven where women can come together with a trained, experienced facilitator in a safe, welcoming environment. You can gain so much by talking to other women on journeys similar to yours. Our Self-Help Groups offer women the opportunity to be open with their experiences, concerns and questions and to learn from and support each other. Share experiences or just listen. We have four separate Self-Help Groups each month - three are open to all and one is specifically for women with metastatic cancer.

Education Services

How can I learn more?

Education is key for women to take control of their health and to increase the early detection and prevention of breast cancer.

At Michelle’s Place, we strongly believe in educating women on not only breast health and breast cancer, but also on ways to improve overall health and lifestyle.  Michelle's Place offers a wide-range of educational resources available to the community on breast cancer as well as other health topics.

Our core messages include:

Educate Yourself - Understand Breast Cancer

Breast cancer has no preference for age. Young women can and do get breast cancer. So what do you do when you have been diagnosed? How do you navigate the many choices and decisions you have to make? How do you get the best care and the most support? The following suggestions can help you gain control over your own breast health care and take an active part in your health.

Breast Self-Exams

Just because you don’t have breast cancer now, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be educated on the topic. Breast cancer can happen to anyone, no matter what age, race, height, weight, even gender.  Knowing your body is essential to finding any potential problems.  Know how your breasts look and feel and tell your doctor if you notice any changes, such as: hard or thickening lumps, change in size and shape of the breast, dimpling or puckering of the skin, rash or redness of the nipple or breast skin, nipple discharge, or new pain that remains for longer periods of time.

Do a breast self-exam once a month. For more a complete guide on how to conduct your breast self-exam visit: http://www.breastcancer.org/symptoms/testing/types/self_exam/bse_steps.

Understand Your Diagnosis

Not all cases of breast cancer are the same. There are many different factors that can affect your treatment and decisions. Just because someone you know had a certain experience, doesn’t mean yours will be the same. Know that it is completely normal to be overwhelmed and loaded with questions. Before you see a medical provider, make a list of any questions you would like answered. Do not leave until all your questions have been asked and answered. Remember to ask your doctor for your pathology reports; you will have one from both your biopsy and your surgery. Ask your healthcare team to explain the terms and information on the report.

Know Your Options

Just as not all breast cancers are the same, not all breast cancer treatments are the same. Explore all the options available to you and get second opinions. Treatments include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, targeted therapies, and hormonal treatments. Insist that your doctor explain why one treatment is being recommended over another. Speak to your doctor about your family history. Together you may decide to consult with a genetic counselor to assess your risk of hereditary breast cancer. The results of either of these consults may help determine your treatment choices.

Be Your Own Health Advocate

In most cases, you have time to make decisions. Do not let a medical provider rush you into something you are not comfortable with. You can and should ask for a second opinion, gain understanding, research your options or explore other doctors. It is your body; be your own health advocate. 

Track Everything

You have the right to your medical records. Ask for copies of everything—from laboratory and radiological scan reports to surgical notes. Michelle’s Place offers a Toolkit to help you organize your medical information. It offers plenty of space for all your notes and records received in one convenient folder. This Toolkit includes places to keep track of contact numbers, appointments, questions, test and pathology reports and medical bills. The first few appointments will be hard to understand, not to mention remember. Consider bringing someone with you to take notes and/or a recording device like your phone to document what happens at each visit.

You Are Not Alone

Looking for other women who have been down this road? Want to ask questions, read stories from survivors and get support? Michelle’s Place is here to help. You do not have to know all the answers right away. You do not have to go through this by yourself. We understand the process and the emotional toll this can take. Give yourself time to explore your options, ask questions and connect with other women who have been down this road or are trying to navigate their way through it as well. It can make all the difference in the world.  Michelle’s Place has implemented programs and services to help women through the entire breast cancer process.

"If there is any message I could pass on it would be to take today's opportunities and live your dreams.  I know sometimes it's hard not to be stressed out by life and bogged with minor problems.  Try to remember what matters most to your heart and be thankful for what you do have."
