Demystifying energy healing with reiki practitioner Sushma Saga


Listen on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or online


Emotional buildups cannot be fully healed by conventional means alone. Releasing past trauma is a matter of mind, body, and spirit, which is why this connection cannot be ignored.


Thankfully it is becoming more mainstream due to people like Sushma Sagar who is on a mission to demystify energy healing and take it out of the ‘weird’, into the weekday.

Sushma is the founder of the London-based energy healing clinic The Calmery, and she is also the author of Find Your Flow. She joins us on the show to help us learn more about energy healing and the work that she does in the field of reiki. Sushma gives listeners a brief introduction to the practice of reiki as well as the seven chakras.

She speaks about the role of the chakras as energy centres that develop at different stages in our lives. Using an energy healing practice like reiki, we can tune into our chakras to take stock of ourselves and begin to release blocked emotion.

She gives us some practical first steps about how to tap into this universal energy to heal ourselves. This is a practice that we can start doing at home without any training because it is a latent skill that all humans possess!

In this conversation, we also explore Sushma’s own journey from the corporate world into the field of energy healing and how it was a slow process of moving toward self-acceptance and authenticity. Join us and take a step closer to becoming more conscious of your energy flow and its healing powers today!

Health & Life Coach Heidi Hauer shows you how to use intuitive tools and access life-changing mindset shifts that support you in leading an abundant, meaningful and successful life.

  • Quotes

    “Reiki is a practice where you need to become attuned first, and the attunement simply means opening yourself up to be a channel for a universal energy to be able to flow through you.” [0:05:02]

    “The thing about channeling energy is you stand back and allow it to happen and that itself is the skill, to just not question.” [0:07:36]

    “In our bodies there are seven energy centers and they are portals and central spots where the energy comes together.” [0:015:19]

    “You can clean your energy without being reiki attuned. You simply notice if your emotions are heavy and then you do whatever you like to do to release them.” [0:25:34]
