BROCKTON As high-frequency energy music plays in the background, reiki healing takes place in the next room andeucalyptus and lavender aromatherapy oils dancein the air. You have entered Healing Hearts Holistically Inc.

Denise Jezewski, a registered nurse, opened thenonprofitHealing Hearts Holisticallyat 49 Pearl St. in Brocktonwith a vision to provide education on cardiac wellness, diabetes preventionand stress management to the community.

I wanted to have a nurse-runcenter to help the community with heart diseases and associated risk factors like diabetes, smokingand stress, Jezewski said.

As a nurse for many years, Jezewski witnessed patients returning to the hospital several times and not managing well. So she wantedto create an outlet in the chain of healthcare that caters to outpatient care with a touch of holistic medicine.

The superstar at the center is reiki, a Japanese alternative therapy.

Reiki practitioners use palm healing, which is believed to transfer energy from the practitioner to the client to promote healing both physically and emotionally.

Reiki has been around for thousands of years and comes from Asia. Its a good way to heal physical ailments, Jezewski said, It doesnt necessarily cure but provides a spiritual essence and balances your chakras.

The reiki therapy session helps your body respond to stressful stimuli and makes you feel more relaxed and grounded, Jezewski said.

She uses tuning forks to add extra vibration at her practice to help the cells rebalance themselves from the stress theyve been under.

Holistic health is a part of our nursing practice. In Massachusetts, you can practice reflexology and aromatherapy as long as you have the proper background education that goes with it, Jezewski said. Its built into our license. Thats what nursing is, helping people reach a state of health and wellness and well being so they can take care of themselves when they go home.

Jezewski saidpeople of color are especiallyat risk forhypertension due to lack of access to health care in some parts of the United States, food insecurityand lack of access to healthy food. She wantsto educate more families about diet and health with cooking classes.

Another service Jezewski offers is "juggling elephants,"an interactive course that teaches the participanthow to become the ringleader of their three-ring circus by managing different elements of their life safely and effectively. This course has other modules to utilize, from watching informational videos to written pieces.

I give people tools to organize their life and manage their stress. Especially as a nurse, you need to be able to take care of yourself as well as others, Jezewski said.

Jezewski also offers first aid, hypertension information, CPR, advanced cardiac life supportand basic life support training.

In the upcoming months, she hopes to introduce more courses on diabetes once she acquires additional certifications.

In her current classes, she teaches the risk factors forhigh blood pressure andwhat causes it,answers questions about high blood pressure medication and goes over treatment options. She also teaches about eating healthy foods and incorporates CDs for guided meditation.

Jezewski has more than30 years of nursing experience and started her nursing career in 1985at St. Elizabeth Hospital School of Nursing in Brighton, which is now closed.In 1989 she graduated from Curry College in Milton, earning a bachelors in nursing. Later on, she received her master of nursing degreefrom Boston College and a healthcare management certificate from Cambridge College.

Due to the pandemic, community outreach is low, but Jezewski hopes to start up again. Before the pandemic, she participated in many health fairs in the community and didcooking demonstrations.

My mission is to do community-wide education on heart disease and living a healthy lifestyle, Jezewski said.

Sessions are by appointment only and can be scheduledby calling 508-584-3278 or visiting happyholisticheart.org.
