Melanie Sarginson: Reiki Bahrain



Reiki is a traditional Japanese healing technique that involves the laying-on of hands in a series of specific hand positions corresponding to the major organs and energy centres in the body.

Acting on a physical, mental and emotional level, Reiki promotes relaxation and inner peace, restores order to the body whose vital energy has become unbalanced and heals a wide range of ailments, from stress to migraines. Reiki works well with other healing modalities for example Reflexology, Acupuncture, Aromatherapy, Crystal Healing and Homeopathy.

Melanie Sarginson offers Reiki treatments and teaches Reiki in Bahrain in three different systems – Usui Reiki Ryoho, Karuna Reiki and Jikiden Reiki. According to Sarginson, “Anyone can learn to use Reiki. It is very simple. Through an energetic empowerment procedure called an ‘attunement’ the teacher empowers the student to use Reiki for healing of self and others. From that moment on the student has Reiki. It stays with them for life.”

Reiki can help you to discover who you really are as well as enables you to heal yourself and others on a physical and emotional level. The courses offered by Sarginson are wonderfully unique, inspirational and an enlightening journey of self- discovery that can change your life forever. Also, she chooses to run small classes to keep the training more personal. Comprehensive manuals and post-course support are included.

Her treatment room is located on Amwaj island, Bahrain.

On Wednesday, June 11, the highly anticipated grand opening of Vapiano Kuwait was a highlight at the Avenues Mall. The event was hosted by Ascia AFK, one of Kuwait’s most prominent and influential Kuwaiti bloggers, with a huge fan base that extends throughout the GCC region.

The opening guaranteed an evening of delicious food and entertainment.

The name Vapiano comes from the Italian expression Chi va piano va sano e va lontano, literally translated to mean “One who takes life easy and relaxed, lives healthier and longer.”  Through their innovative spin on the age-old Mediterranean tradition of group cooking, Vapiano has been one of the most influential restaurant concepts in the region, winning awards such as the 2013 “Best Newcomer” by Timeout Restaurant Awards, and was also placed in the 2013 “Favorite In Mall Restaurant” by Citibank Fact Dining Awards.
Every meal is made-to-order and created right in front of the guests’ eyes, allowing for the ultimate interactive experience; guests can express personal preferences throughout the preparation of their meal. Also, customers can customize made-to-order creations, which include fresh homemade pasta, fire roasted pizzas and gourmet salads.

Once guests receive their food, coffee or dessert, Vapiano invites guests to unwind in its spacious seating area beneath an 85-year old olive tree, and enjoy the soothing décor which include contemporary furnishings made from imported German oak typically used on yachts and villas, natural stone, soft earth-toned leather, and a green wall of herbs imported from Holland.
The brainchild behind Vapiano’s presence in the GCC is SunCity Ventures W.L.L. Established in 2003; SunCity Venntures W.L.L. is a Bahraini based company, which operates as a franchisee and operator of popular food and beverage concepts in the GCC. The company enjoys a reputation in the market for introducing many well-known brands such as Zayt Zaytoon, Gloria Jean’s coffee and Yellow Cilli.

“We are very excited to be opening our first Vapiano location in Kuwait,” says director of SunCity Ventures Mohammed Adel Fakhro.  “Kuwait is such an amazing culinary state with many different successful concepts and we are confident there is a place for Vapiano and excited by the challenge.”
