Hope is the Power of Life & Fuel of Our Dreams
"Dear Amira, Your spirit is SO contagious! Your treatments have been MORE amazing than I could have imagined. My knee has been so painful, I had taken anti-inflammatory medication for a few months but stopped because I was afraid of what this medication would do to my stomach. After your first Reiki ( did I spell that right?), the pain was completely gone. After a few days, I felt a dull pain, and again, our second treatment made it feel better. Today, after your third treatment, I sit here, in no pain, and am heading out to do my exercise on the "NuStep'. I look forward to being in your presence again! You are my 'gift' from G-d. Thank you, my friend Amira. Love, "
"Mrs. Choukair has a gentle manner when dealing with those in our society who suffer with the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease. I have witnessed her work personally and appreciate her ability to reach inside those who seem unreachable and her talent at bringing out whatever parts have been hidden by this devastating disease."

"While I was participating in the Alzheimer's Activities Workshop on March 24, 2005, I observed how each person reacting to the techniques that Amira was showing them. I encouraged one of our residents, Mary, to participate. Mary has a hearing and speech impairment and dementia. Mary sits for hours a day smiling and never participates in our activities. During this particular activity she was watching Amira and she began to sing the song with us. This was a tremendous accomplishment. Amira definitely has the skill to search inside a senior citizen and bring out their inner feelings and talents. I was impressed with the workshop and found Amira's advice to be very beneficial.

"...Most directly, one of our CLLs is an expert on activities
for Alzheimer's patients. She is Amira Choukair Tame, and is the author
of "Healing the Wounds of Alzheimer's," Amira was one of the
outstanding presenters at this year's Advanced CLL Workshop." "
Amira's books and CD are 'must-have' resources for everyone who cares
about a person with Alzheimer's. Her methods can be understood and used
effectively by almost anybody at any level, professionals, volunteers,
friends, and family members, too."

"A few weeks ago, In Columbus, Ohio, I was privileged to attend an Alzheimer's Presentation produced by Amira Choukair Tame. As part of the program, Amira played a DVD called "The ABC's of Alzheimer's."
The DVD was a masterpiece of education depicting the activities, the humanism of the care giver, the spontaneous actions resulting in the professional way the care giver in a most un-pressured manner was able to secure reaction from the patient. Explanation of the individual activities to be performed was followed by actual demonstrations of the wonderful un-pressured responses by the patient to the care giver. The DVD included a great variety of situation and activities to be performed. The program followed the progress of the patients, right up to a sensational climax on the final days of life. To reveal the last two minutes of the program on paper would not do justice to the most wonderful conclusion of any real life situation I have ever had the privilege of viewing. To all care givers, friends, relatives of anyone who is afflicted with Alzheimer's, the book, and "The ABC's of Alzheimer's" are a joy, full of human kindness, and a wonderful prescription for those who care. It has my heartiest recommendation.
