How Our Natural Treatments Once Benefited The Pharoahs

Treatments that date back to the time of the Pharoahs to recharge and revitalise you.

Treatments that have been used for thousands of years and that are still used locally in modern day egypt. Combine with our vision of health and healing.

‘I woke up one Saturday morning in April 2009, I knew I was awake because I could hear the birds chirping and could see the rays of sunshine beaming through the gaps in the blinds.

I felt an unnatural stillness in the room as though time had stood still. Within a flash I was teleported to another time and place. I found myself in a dome with crystals glistening  around me. 

A bright light filled the room and gentle breeze brushed over my body. The experience ended as suddenly as it had started.

I felt a tremendous sense of peace, calm and upliftment, I got out of bed that morning on a quest to replicate that healing experience and feeling for others.’

How do we know these are Ancient Egyptian Treatments?

In terms of energy healing, there is still a type of Reiki performed today called Shekhem that has a very high vibration it uses Egyptian symbols and it’s name is derived from the goddess Shekmet.

She was seen as one of the most powerful figures and the protector of light and energy. She helps through journeys of transformations and with the beauty of rebirth.

Shamanic Egyptian healing captures the vibration of this energy to restore health.

Temple of Dendera

The famous healing temple of Dendera shows evidence that some of the holistic treatments that we are offering were also were applied to restore health and happiness in Pharonic Egypt.

It’s also very well known that the ancient Egyptians were at the forefront of medicine and throughout the ancient world they were praised for their unique and inventive approach to medicine.

People would come to Egypt both for healing and to learn medicine. Egyptians were renowned for looking after themselves and for being some of the most beautiful and physically fit people in the ancient world.

Kemet – Land of the Pharoahs

In ancient times Egypt had an entirely different name. It was known as K’MT (Khemet).

It was a buzzing enterprise that created a whole culture of people who were discovering and innovating many ways in which we can look after ourselves and improve our lives.

Ancient Egyptians are behind so many of the energy healing methods used today and it’s on their ‘magical’ or spiritual practices that our treatments are based.
