CLINICAL REIKI for Complementary Therapists - a new, unique course




TRADITIONAL USUI REIKI has been practised in the UK since the early nineties, and several expanded variants have emerged since that time. One such is Seichem, a system which includes not only Reiki (which is described as Earth energy), but also healing frequencies of Water, Air/Spirit and Fire. This combination of synergistic vibrations makes for a powerful and balanced therapeutic tool which is easy to use and more adaptable than many other systems.

Despite the popularity of Reiki as a therapy, there has not been an opportunity for practitioners to learn this powerful healing modality in a way which is specifically slanted towards their particular needs. Most members of the public look to Reiki for help and empowerment in their personal lives, and for many of them this is their first step towards spiritual development - so inevitably courses are structured with this in mind. Conversely, therapists have usually progressed a long way down this particular path earlier in their career, and may find this approach less relevant, and perhaps a little frustrating.


However, there is now an alternative route to Reiki/Seichem which is focused on the practitioner/patient dynamic – concentrating on using this versatile system in a clinical setting. Not everyone wants to use healing as a separate entity within their therapeutic armoury, but every therapist can benefit from increased energy levels, sharpened intuition and improved efficiency.

Many Reiki systems are based on the use of complicated and time-consuming protocols, which can be invaluable as an introduction to spiritual discipline. However this approach does not always lend itself to convenient inclusion in a busy multiple-therapy practice. Seichem, on the other hand, is not only easy to learn, it has moved beyond much of the ritualistic requirement of most other traditions. In this way it slots seamlessly into any complementary therapy scenario.


Whatever your preferred speciality, Seichem will enhance your effectiveness and help you in ways you never imagined. It is not only bodyworkers, massage practitioners and beauty therapists who can benefit – anyone who uses communication, counselling, resonance, energetic or vibrational techniques will find this integrated approach invaluable. The system is suitable for any type of therapist, including those who have already trained in another form of Reiki. (If this is the case, please contact us for information.)The teaching is specifically clinical, emphasizing the many and various ways that this therapy can be used in complementary practice.


The course is taught over one extended day, providing 8 hours of concentrated tuition and attunements.
(5 CThA points, 8 hours CPD)
The next event is scheduled for Saturday June 16th 2012, followed by Saturday October 6th 2012, both at a venue near Croydon.
The cost is £140 (£120 if booked in advance)

How is Fire used?

Sakara, or fire energy, is usually felt as a hot tingling sensation. It is used for healing in the electromagnetic aura, 'burning' blockages in the chakras, and for re-energising the body after a severe shock, physical or emotional.

That said, it is not normally necessary to intend the use of a particular type of energy. The client/healee will ALWAYS draw the appropriate healing combination without any prompting. Seichem is very versatile!

I was attracted by the idea of clinical reiki, expecting some reference to working in clinical environments, but from what I can gather reading the course description and the related discussions, this is a seichem course...

what is the definition of clinical reiki?

is there a difference between the clinical reiki course and a seichem course other than the name?

I would be very grateful for an answer

Many thanks

Dear Ersilia,

Thanks for your e mail. I have copied a reply given to another therapist some time ago which I hope will give you the information you require.

"The course is structured with the intention of spending most of the discussion and practical time on the use and application of Reiki/Seichem within a complementary medical practice, rather than emphasising the personal development area. Most therapists have already done plenty of self-enhancement! What they really want to know is how to use Reiki/Seichem alongside, and within their existing practice - how it can help them to be more effective with less effort. I have been integrating it into my various therapies for almost 20 years, so I have a great deal of experience in that area."

Please do come back to me if you have any further questions.
