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)

Hi there

I was interested in the Clinical Reiki course. However, could someone explain to me, what specifically makes this course 'Clinical' as opposed to any other course in reiki.

Just wondered.

Dear Vivienne,

Thank you for your interest.

There are several aspects to consider:

1. The course is structured with the intention of spending most of the discussion and practical time on the use and application of Reiki within 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 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.

2. I teach SEICHEM, a complex healing frequency which includes Reiki within it. Reiki is considered to represent Earth energy. Seichem also expands to resonate with water (Sophiel), fire (Sakara), air/spirit (Angeliclight) and Violet Flame energies. Not only is it a very powerful healing modality, it is simpler to use and very versatile. When I was attuned to Usui Reiki, my master/teacher was herself a pupil of one of Takata’s first attunees, so she was very close to the source. However, once I moved on to Seichem, I felt an immediate ‘step up’ in my healing, and this has been the experience of others who were previously in more traditional forms of Reiki.

3. As there has been considerable interest from practitioners who already use other forms of Reiki, I have decided to offer a reduction in the cost of the seminar to any therapist who can show proof of previous attunement. Should anyone be interested in this special price of £90, please contact my practice for further details.

020 8653 8785 or

4. Further courses will be offered in Second and Third (non-teaching) levels if requested.

I hope this answer your questions Vivienne – do come back to me if you have any further queries. There is also more information on my website – see the link above.
