Mariia Tsegelnyk poised to redefine energy healing despite strong obstacles




Master Energy Healer, Reiki Master, and founder of “The Light of Healing,” Mariia Tsegelnyk, set to revolutionize the industry despite facing obstacles from different quarters

Mariia Tsegelnyk came into the United States in 2012 after receiving her Master’s in Business Management from Ukraine and Norway.  No one would have thought that things could turn around in a relatively short while with a series of life-transforming events that have turned the business management manager to an expert in yoga, Reiki, Hypnosis, and energy healing.

After falling in love with yoga and becoming a successful teacher, the unexpected happened as Mariia was hit with a mysterious disease that led her to quit her career. Lyme Disease almost killed the passionate Mariia, making her bedridden for a long while and staring death in the face. However, her never give up spirit pushed her to believe that a cure existed somewhere and more importantly, within her. This determination led her to the discovery of energy healing, which eventually became her lifesaver. After surviving the illness, thanks to her mastery of energy healing and its potentials, Mariia decided to share her wealth of knowledge and experience with the rest of the world by establishing “The Light of Healing.”

“The Light of Healing” offers Energy Healing and Reiki Certifications and Trainings, Group Classes, Meditations and Hypnosis, Private Energy Healing, Coaching and Hypnosis sessions. However, Mariia has faced and overcame several challenges on her path to promoting energy healing.

I was actually turned down by one of the spiritual schools when I applied for a Teacher’s Training because of my accent,” said the Ukrainian born Mariia Tsegelnyk. “I’ve been told that I am such an incredible Spiritual Healer, and this is where I should stay since they don’t think teaching is for me because of my accent,” Mariia continued.

While others would have literally collapsed under such pressure and rejection, they only acted as fuel for her determination, motivating her to achieve even more success and become one of the best spiritual teachers worldwide.

I wasn’t going to let other people determine what I can and can’t do and stop me from pursuing my soul’s calling,” said Mariia.

Despite all the challenges, Mariia started teaching and becoming increasingly popular with natural healing enthusiasts, with referrals helping her to grow quickly in a short while. Mariia has grown to become a world-renowned teacher with students in different parts of the world as she continues to spread the light and help people become the best version of themselves.

What Interferes with Successful Breastfeeding?




While breastfeeding is ideal, it comes with many difficulties new parents might face.

After experiencing the intensity of labor and delivery, many new parents are left exhausted. Despite this fatigue and surviving pospartum, new parents soon learn the importance of managing the needs of an infant. Putting aside their own desires, parents learn to quickly adapt.

Exhaustion and recovery are not the only things that discourage parents from breastfeeding. There are a variety of other woes that can make it difficult for a lactating parent to continue to choose this option. 

While 83 percent of women breastfeed at the beginning of postpartum, there is a drastic reduction by 6 months, resulting in only 56% of babies still being breastfed. 

Engorged Breasts

When a lactating woman’s milk comes in, she may experience intense pain and discomfort. The breasts typically become overly filled with milk because they have not yet regulated their supply. This engorgement can continue throughout the breastfeeding journey for a variety of reasons.

If the baby’s schedule changes, a woman’s breasts can become overly full. If the parent misses a feeding, breasts can experience discomfor which can lead to breastfeeding infection. If a woman becomes preoccupied at work and does not make time to pump, she can experience discomfort. 

If breast engorgement is not treated properly, milk ducts can become blocked, and if a woman does not work to move the milk through her breasts (via feeding her baby, pumping, or expressing the milk), this engorgement can lead to further problems and may cause clogged milk ducts.


One of the biggest concerns beyond the pain a woman experiences with engorgement is infection. This is known as mastitis, and leads to a woman experiencing not only breast pain and warm breast tissue, but also flu-like symptoms that come with fever, chills, headache, and further exhaustion.

In order to help prevent infection, regular feedings are essential. Often, the best mastitis treatment, at least for early symptoms, is to massage the breast in a warm shower and express the extra milk.

Furthermore, by working with an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), parents can have a great resource on how to best deal with, treat, and alleviate these problems. 

Not only is an IBCLC a great resource in helping prevent breast infection, but a great source for your breastfeeding journey to encourage and educate you in best practices. 

The best way to achieve breastfeeding success is to utilize the many tools that an IBCLC offers. 


To exclusively breastfeed your baby can be quite overwhelming and exhausting. Between nightly feedings, cluster feedings, and pumping sessions for working mothers, breastfeeding is difficult to maintain. Unless a woman is properly supported by her family, friends, and workplace, the chances that a woman will continue to breastfeed are significantly impacted.

Culture also impacts the likelihood of a baby being breastfed beyond 6 months. The CDC discovered that parents in the Southeast United States are less likely to breastfeed their children past six months. This was in contrast to the Northwest, where business policies and the culture is more breastfeeding-friendly and supportive. 


Despite the nutritional benefits afforded to a breastfed baby, there are many obstacles that can be discouraging for parents on their breastfeeding journey. From exhaustion to pain to lack of supoort, parents have many reasons to give up. 

To increase your chances of success, surround yourself with supportive individuals, reach out to an IBCLC, also known as lactation consultants, and gain the necessary tools required to provide your child with the healthiest option available – you!
