Reiki and Seichem

Reiki and Seichem when used together form a powerful hands-on healing system used by many people all over the world.

Reiki (pronounced ray key) is a Japanese word meaning Universal Life Energy. It was rediscovered in ancient Sanskrit texts by Mikaomi Usui in the late 19th Century and brought to the west by Mrs Hawayo Takata in the 1940s.

Seichem (pronounced say keem) was discovered in 1980 by Patrick Ziegler and is reputedly one of the healing arts practised in Ancient Eygpt.

Seichem uses the four elemental healing rays of Reiki (earth), Sophi-el (water), Angeliclight (air and spirit) and Sakara (fire) – all elements work on different levels to balance energy and heal disturbance in the body.

Reiki and Seichem have no association with religion, faith or belief systems so can be received by anyone who is willing to be healed. The healing is energy channelling and can be given in a hands-on treatment.

All Reiki/Seichem practitioners at the clinic have been trained and attuned by a Reiki and Seichem Master and member of RASA (Reiki and Seichem Association), this means that their attunement is from a direct lineage that goes back to Mikao Usui and this ensures the quality of energy transfer.

A treatment usually lasts for an hour. You remain fully clothed and can lie under a blanket if you wish. You can also receive the treatment whilst sitting, if you’d prefer. The practitioner will gently place their hands in various positions in, or just above your body. You may feel a pleasant tingling sensation of warmth, coolness or tingling.

You may fall asleep during your treatment, or experience an emotional release, every experience is unique to the individual. Mostly you will feel deeply relaxed.

The benefits of a healing treatment are:

  • eases tension and promotes relaxation
  • boosts the immune system
  • helps with bereavement
  • improves quality of sleep
  • soothes pain and improves joint mobility
  • reduces the effect of trauma
  • supports and does not interfere with other complementary therapies and medical treatment

RASA Reiki and Seichem is a natural system of healing. It is safe to use after surgery and also for babies, pregnant women and the elderly. It is a holistic system that can help us to move through blockages that prevent our lives from flowing smoothly. The energies enhance our natural ability to heal ourselves at all levels.
