“I like to de­scribe it this way: If I can re­lieve you of stress and anx­i­ety while pro­mot­ing heal­ing, would you like some.” – Tra­cie Ull­man, SoulS­capes Reiki Laser Skin Cen­ter

EAST CALN » Tra­cie Ull­man comes by her love for holis­tic heal­ing hon­estly: Her mother prac­ticed Reiki when she was grow­ing up.

Now, Ull­man has taken that in­ter­est and ex­panded her busi­ness to the point where she has opened her own shop near Down­ing­town.

She and the Ex­ton Re­gion Cham­ber of Com­merce re­cently cel­e­brated the grand re­open­ing of her busi­ness, SoulS­capes Reiki Laser Skin Cen­ter, with a rib­bon-cut­ting cer­e­mony that also in­tro­duced her ten­ant, Hands Down Mas­sage.

The open­ing marks a mile­stone for Ull­man, who has a nurs­ing de­gree, a Reiki mas­ter­ship, is a li­censed cos­me­tol­o­gist and med­i­cal es­theti­cian, and is a grad­u­ate from the In­sti­tute of Laser Medicine.

“It was ev­i­dent through­out the evening that Tra­cie’s col­lab­o­ra­tive en­tre­pre­neur­ial spirit and pas­sion for her clients will lead to a suc­cess­ful busi­ness in the re­gion,” said Lau­rie Kerk­er­ing, pres­i­dent of the Ex­ton Re­gion Cham­ber of Com­merce. “We were hon­ored to be part of such a spe­cial celebration.”

Reiki is ad­min­is­tered through the hands of a Reiki prac­ti­tioner with the client ly­ing fully clothed on a mas­sage ta­ble. A ses­sion usu­ally lasts between 45 min­utes to an hour and a half and shorter ses­sions are also pos­si­ble.

The Reiki prac­ti­tioner places their hands at lo­ca­tions around the head and shoul­ders, the ab­domen and on the legs and feet. Tis­sue is not ma­nip­u­lated. The prac­ti­tioner’s hands are sim­ply held at each lo­ca­tion, lightly touch­ing or slightly away from the body. Reiki en­ergy flows from the prac­ti­tioner’s hands and into the client’s body and en­ergy field. A Reiki ses­sion feels re­lax­ing, and pro­motes peace, well­be­ing and heal­ing, Ull­man said.

“I like to de­scribe it this way: If I can re­lieve you of stress and anx­i­ety while pro­mot­ing heal­ing, would you like some,” Ull­man said in de­scrib­ing the prac­tice that started in Ja­pan.

Ull­man be­gan prac­tic­ing Reiki in the area in 2010 at the Lionville Holis­tic Cen­ter. She had been work­ing out of the Spirit of Yoga lo­ca­tion on Lan­caster Av­enue in Down­ing­town for the last four years un­til her busi­ness had grown enough to war­rant its own lo­ca­tion.

Push­ing that growth, Ull­man said, was the ad­di­tion of the laser skin cen­ter. There, a laser is used to re­move vis­i­ble fine lines, blood ves­sels, age spots, acne, hair and rosacea with­out dam­ag­ing sur­round­ing tis­sues. Clients also can get Botox in­jec­tions from a doc­tor at the cen­ter.

The cos­me­tol­o­gist said she works with can­cer pa­tients who are deal­ing with loss of hair and other side ef­fects from treat­ment.

“It’s a 12-step ‘Look Good Feel Bet­ter’ pro­gram where we deal with ev­ery­thing from eye­brows and wigs to the rest of it,” Ull­man said, adding that she’s been to area hos­pi­tals to help pa­tients there. “It makes them feel bet­ter while they’re in treat­ment.”

Ull­man, a mother of two who is not re­lated to the ac­tress of the same name, said the holis­tic liv­ing life­style was in­grained in her af­ter a near death ex­pe­ri­ence in 2009 when she was over­come in a sweat lodge and nearly died. She went into a coma for four hours.

From that, she said, she learned the im­por­tance of trust­ing her in­stincts. She teaches per­sonal en­rich­ment classes through Ch­ester County Night School on top­ics of Soul Beauty, Angels, In­tu­ition De­vel­op­ment, and Per­sonal Em­pow­er­ment.

Ull­man, who has hosted a ra­dio show on WCHE that ex­plores trends in the holis­tic treat­ment field, said she sees 20 to 40 clients a week and has a client base of about 300 peo­ple.
