I have often asked the same question: why is this specialty not on fire?? I have been the recipient of CAM measures for 20 years, acupunture, massage therapy, herbals, essential oils, yoga. Three years ago my husband died of a massive MI, I was 54 years old and had a child still in high school, I was doing cardiac/palliative home care. I have had to work a lot of hours to make ends meet for the last three years but soon after my husband died I took a Reiki class and loved it!!! Since then I have become a Reiki Master Teacher, Crystal Therapist, Herbalist, and now I am working on Clinical Aromatherapy, focusing on therapeutic uses of essential oils. I feel as if this is my true path, combining Nursing with Holistics. I recently gave up my job and am going to take the financial risk to get an Holistic practice off the ground.
I was so discouraged with nursing in the last few years, now I feel alive with knowledge that can help clients directly.
