Susanne Hardcastle

Reiki & Seichem Master Teacher & Registered Children's Nurse

About me

Hello, my name is Sue and I have been a healer for 24 years. I trained in the Tera Mai system of Reiki & Seichem and am a Master and Teacher of both. I also took training in Crystal Healing by Katrina Raphael which was so profound that I added it to my treatments to offer a combination of Reiki, Seichem and Crystal Healing.

Reiki is a form of healing energy that is chanelled through the healer, out of her hands, and into the person receiving the healing. It is akin to earth energy and I believe that it comes from the source that creates and sustains all life on earth. It is intelligent, loving and can do no harm.

Seichem is also channeled through the hands and is the name given to the energies of the other three elements, fire, water and air. Sakara, or fire energy, works on the nerves and can feel like electricity, Sophi-El or water energy comes in cool waves and works on the emotions, Angelic Light or air energy works on the spiritual self bringing great peace.

I have been working with crystals for 23 years and I use them to add a further dimension of healing to my treatments. The crystal layouts I use make a grid of high vibrational energy that revitalises the clients' energy bodies and holds a safe space for trapped memories of pain and trauma to be released. This often clears the way for major transformation in people's lives. I combine these 3 forms of healing in my treatments in whatever way seems appropriate for each client. I am also a qualified and practicing paediatric nurse and am especially delighted to treat children and young people.

My clients lay on a couch fully clothed while I use a crystal pendulum to douse the chakras and then I place crystals on and around them. Once the crystals are in position the client is covered with a warm blanket and I place my hands on or near them in various positions as the energy is drawn through me and into them. Clients typically report warmth, relaxation, tingling, some fall asleep, some see colours. Everyone's experience is unique and perfect for them.

Whatever brings you to my healing room, whether you are exhausted with stress, suffering with some physical ailment or maybe just curious, a healing treatment is generally deeply relaxing and peaceful; it can be a first step on your journey back to you.

I look forward to meeting you.

Further information

My therapy room is in the basement of my home in Gravesend. I also hold Reiki classes here and regular drop-in classes for students who would like to practise their healing and take part in group meditations.

My treatments are a combination of Reiki, Seichem and crystal healing. I assess the chakras using a quartz pendulum and then lay crystals on and around my client, cover them with warm blankets and give a full Reiki treatment.

At the end of the treatment I use my pendulum to demonstrate to the client the difference in their energy field.

There are 3 steps down to the door of my healing room, so unfortunately I am unable to accomodate wheelchair users. I may be able to do a home visit though so please contact me if you would like to discuss this.
