To Life Annual Appeal

Wellness Therapies

To Life! offers Reiki and Healing Touch at no charge to patients, survivors, and caregivers by appointment.
Each of these therapies promotes relaxation and healing, and clients leave our doors with a sense of calm and positivity.

As one client stated,

"I really enjoyed my [Healing Touch] experience with Shirley.  I left in peace and calm.  The feeling continues today. Oddly for me, tears flowed during the session; I wonder where they came from.  Hmmmm. I haven't cried in years, but it sure felt good!! 

I strongly recommend a session with Shirley for everybody.  The healing touch made the rest of my day pleasant and enjoyable; I was able to relax and enjoy the simple wonders of nature that surround me that I don't notice very often, like the smell of  flowers in my garden, the birds chirping, the magnificient sky.  Truly a magical experience.  It dawned on me that I might just be depressed and Shirley's healing hands greatly affected my mind, body and spirit.  Amazing!!"

What Survivorship Means to Me

I am not a survivor, or a victim but a VICTOR! I now envision myself on top of a mountain. This experience has not defined me, but it has shaped me into the woman I am today.
