What is Reiki/Seichem Healing?

Reiki/Seichem is performed by the ‘laying-on of hands’ whilst the client remains fully clothed on a massage couch or seated in a chair. The practitioner channels this life energy through their hands to the recipient for the purposes of healing the body, mind & spirit. It is said to accelerate the body’s ability to heal physical ailments, opens the mind & spirit to the causes of disease and pain, reinforcing the recipient’s ability to take responsibility for their life.

The hand positions correspond to the energy centres of the body & their associated organs. The Practitioner may work ‘hands off’ to facilitate deeper healing in the energy field. The number of treatments depends upon the root cause of the problem and the amount of energy needed to restore the well-being.

You will also receive the Violet flame attunement which helps to integrate all the energy and releases negativity. This allows you to receive levels 1 & 2 together safely if you prefer. Working with all four healing elements allows you to be able to have parts 1 & 2 on the same day.

This Course offers Reiki/Seichem parts 1 & 2 together at a discounted price. It is a popular way to learn both levels in just one day as we have only small numbers of no more than 6 per course.

There are schools that teach parts 1 & 2 over 2 days or more but usually they have far more students and hence, larger classes. Gateway Workshops specialize in smaller classes, giving the benefit of individual and personal attention to students. You will also receive a detailed manual within the price of the course. Our Reiki and Seichem Course have been running very successfully for over 13 years with fantastic feedback.

Reiki/Seichem Healing is a Gentle 'Hands on' Technique Working with Energy to Release any Blockages in the Body.

RASA (Reiki and Seichem Association) is a Sanskrit word for "essence" and is a powerful system using all four healing elements.

It promotes and accelerates healing on many levels and is excellent for those suffering with stress related conditions. Reiki/Seichem Healing is very powerful affecting physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels as well as promoting deep levels of relaxation.

Reiki is the attunement to the Earth energy & Seichem introduces the missing part of Air, Fire and Water using the four elements as a balanced energy healing system.

This workshop is ideal for those who have already completed Reiki training and wish to add a different energy to their existing healing or for those new to healing.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. I'm attuned to Usui-Reiki II, and use various Rainbow Reiki techniques and Japanese techniques (e.g., hatsurei ho, reiji ho, byosen etc), and really want to expand my Reiki "toolbox" by learning Seichem. I know that Gateway teach both together, but it seems pointless me coming along to one of the courses, and paying again for the Usui-Reiki I and II, when all I want is the Seichem part! Will you consider doing separate courses, so that I don't end up repeating myself?!

A. When you do one of our courses you are learning this system of Reiki but adding the Seichem so you will not be repeating anything. This will become clear if you completed your Usui Masters and then followed with the Reiki Masters as the attunements are different.

Q. If I have already trained in Usui Reiki, what is the difference to include the Seichem?

A. Many teachers started with Usui Reiki which is excellent then are introduced to this system which does not take anything away from the Usui method. This system just adds to what you already have to make the system of healing you offer more effective. It is equally good for those who have trained in Usui Reiki or for those new to healing therapies.

The feedback for this course from those who have already completed Usui Reiki has been wonderful. The addition of the missing elements of fire, air and water to Reiki Earth, enhance the power of the healing to both you and your clients quite noticeably.

Working with all four healing elements allows you to have parts 1 & 2 on the same day.

Q. Why are the prices for Reiki and Seichem so different – your’s are very affordable!

A. Most people offer Reiki on its own for one price (similar to what we offer for both Reiki and Seichem) We offer both for half the price as we had requests to provide a course that incorporated Reiki in this way and we like to offer value for money.

Recommendation from a friend.


Feedback from Susan Crookes

Upon first meeting our tutor she made me feel completely relaxed and she had a calm and peaceful air about her which rubbed off on you straight away….she has a wonderful teaching manner that was most captivating and she held your undivided attention throughout. She made me feel completely safe during my attunement and her care and nurture was a perfect balance. I was lucky that there was only me and one other student, so we had more time with the tutor on a personal level.


Feedback from James F Charles


I have found Gateway has gave me working confidence. I have found my tutor wonderful to work with. Booked because I had used Gateway previously.


Feedback from Rachel

Our tutor was an inspiration. I feel so completely blessed to have met her and been taught by her. Her knowledge is so vast, once you experience a number of her courses you will be truly amazed by the detail of her knowledge in so many areas. What I love about her is that she is able to be extremely concise about the subject she is teaching and you come away from a course really understanding that subject area because it's been taught in such a simple yet complete way.

I likes the gateway courses because they are of an interesting subject matter and they are easy to fit around your working life. They allow you to learn without worrying about over committing yourself and not being able to attend.


Feedback from Deborah Cauch

What a fantastic course from start to finish. Everything from the building to the tutor made the day better than I could have hoped, the course was excellent. Not only was it enjoyable and informative the information was easy to understand, lots of help and advice were given, nothing was a problem. The tutor went above and beyond the call of duty to support me, a big thank you

The course was above and beyond what I expected. It was a wonderful course and gave me the skills to confidently go forward and put my skills into action, I would defiantly do other courses with this company.
