What is Reiki?
At the end of the 19th century a healing method was rediscovered in ancient Sanskrit texts by a Japanese scholar, Mikaomi Usui. He called it Reiki (pronounced ray-key) a Japanese word meaning Universal Life Energy. Reiki has no association with religion, faith or belief systems, and can be received by anyone who is willing to be healed.
When energy flows uninterrupted there is balance and harmony within and around us and we experience a sense of well being. Reiki works to bring us back into balance and reinforces the body’s natural ability to heal itself at all levels.
Reiki can benefit everyone and is a wonderful way to support the many changes we go through as women. As a natural form of healing, Reiki has the ability to reverse stress-induced conditions and can support and enhance other forms of treatment. It encourages and supports positive personal choices such as improving your diet, taking more exercise and devoting time to yourself . Reiki’s gentle energy is safe and adaptable to most medical conditions including children, the elderly and even animals. It can also be beneficial for people recovering from surgery. I have found that has been particularly beneficial throughout pregnancy and the postnatal period helping to reduce many of the symptoms that can occur during these times.
Reiki benefits physical, mental and emotional health. Healing is given in a non-intrusive hands-on treatment and the recipient remains fully clothed. Some people feel very relaxed and may even fall asleep, others talk about what they are feeling. The healing energy can feel hot or cold, and there may be tingling sensations. The experience really does vary from person to person so I always advise people to receive treatment with an open mind.
What is Seichem?
Seichem (pronounced say-keem) works in the same way as Reiki, with hands placed on the body, but in addition hands may be working in the aura which surrounds the body. It is reputedly one of the healing arts practiced in ancient Egypt. Reiki is one of the four elemental rays which make up Seichem - earth (Reiki), water, air, fire and spirit.
Seichem was rediscovered in 1980 by Patrick Zeigler while he was visiting Egypt and after spending the night in the King’s Chamber of the Great Pyramid.
Seichem connects with our higher selves to establish healing in the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies. The energy is used to heal and stimulate personal development and growth. Spellings of the word differ but it always means power in a spiritual sense.
Reiki is a complimentary therapy and should not be used to replace medical treatment where required. In the event of any acute or infectious conditions clients should contact their GP.
I first discovered the joys of Reiki at a treatment share back in 2005. I will never forget the feelings that I experienced that day and knew there and then that this was something that I would work with when the time was right.
I became a practitioner in 2010 completing my Mastership in 2014. I have since enjoyed sharing the incredible treatment with women of all ages. I am an accredited member of RASA (Reiki and Seichem Association) and The Institute of Professional Therapists (IPTI). I offer a completely confidential service that focuses on making you feel totally relaxed.
