A gifted Reiki master and intuitive energy healer, London-based Shaylini helps people to release emotional, mental and physical pain, as well as imbalances and blockages. She is a regular Visiting Practitioner at various Four Seasons and Mandarin Oriental hotels.
WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START PRACTICING REIKI?
I was raised in a spiritual environment that was deeply rooted in the Ancient Indian wisdom of the Vedas which included mantra, meditation and yoga, all of which works deeply with energy. I am and always have been by nature very much spiritually inclined. It is the very core of my being. Many years later during my adult life, I was at a wonderful Ayurvedic retreat in Kerala, south India where I experienced my first Reiki healing treatment. This work with spiritually guided energy, frequency and vibration was so profound that I haven’t looked back ever since.
DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN THREE WORDS
Spiritual, optimistic, adventurous.
REIKI IN A NUTSHELL
Reiki is a profound healing life-force energy that flows through all living things. This healing energy is a completely natural, non-invasive, holistic healing technique that works to activate and strengthen the body’s healing processes to help restore mental, physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.
WHAT HAPPENS IN A TREATMENT SESSION WITH YOU?
My sessions involve an in-depth consultation with every client, where we cover all their healing needs. I then explain exactly what the session will entail and how Reiki healing works. The client is then asked to simply lie down on the healing table, relax and be ready to receive healing. I say a deeply healing mantra at the start of the session followed by some guided breathwork exercises with the client and I then begin the healing. I practice both hands-on and hands-off healing techniques, which is dependent upon the client’s healing requirements. The session ends with a healing chant and thereafter an in-depth discussion with the client as to what came up for them and also what came through to me during their healing.
WHO SHOULD COME FOR A SESSION?
Anyone looking to bring back internal peace, balance, release any out-of-alignment energies and ultimately raise their vibration back to utmost health and happiness.
WHERE DO YOU WORK FROM AT THE MOMENT?
I am based in London and provide my treatments at the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park in Knightsbridge and I teach from Harley Street in London. I also travel throughout the year providing my healing treatments at various five-star hotels and resorts.
