Reiki and Healing Touch

What is Reiki?

Reiki is an energy-based approach to healing that originated in ancient Tibetan Buddhist teachings. Reiki is a gentle, nurturing, hands-on, healing practice.  Practitioners connect with the universal life force energy that is all around is – the trees, the plants, the earth… and activate the body’s natural healing process, promoting a natural balance of mind, body, and spirit.

Reiki increases energy levels, reduces stress, and allows the body to self-heal.

While Massage Therapy focuses primarily on the physical body, Reiki addresses all layers of the body and spirit, including physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects. Reiki with touch combines massage and energy healing.

Reiki helps you be in touch with your energy, which can also include other helpful modalities such as mindfulness, breath, meditation, intention, managing your thoughts, handling anxiety.

Reiki Session

This includes gentle touch and hand placements on the body while you are snuggled in warm blankets, on a massage table.  The session starts with steam towels on the face, then gentle massage of hands, arms, neck, head, and feet.  Reiki is gently given during the session, and may include reflexology, pressure points, earth grounding, and chakra clearing.

Testimonials from Clients

Shared  from client’s family member, about Shamanic Reiki sessions, performed over a period of several months on a friend who had cancer… “He did not identify as a spiritual person, but  Reiki changed his life.  Working with Nicolle over time brought him comfort and ease and allowed him to step into the light with joy and peace, and pulled together an entire group of people around the globe in community support and prayer.  We are certain if we had started sooner, he would be alive now. ”  ~Penelope

“My side effects of chemo were half of what they were the previous week.  Reiki held the really bad chemo side effects at bay.”  ~Emilie

“Nicolle’s gentle touch (the softest/gentlest touch I know of) relaxes me to the core.  Her energy quietly works with mine, as she transports me to the mountains, where I am floating on the lake in the sunshine.  Her energy bolsters me for days, and gives me stamina to face overwhelming responsibilities of life.”  ~Sue

Testimonials from Students

“I’m so grateful for everything you’ve taught and supported me through. I don’t know what I would’ve done the past 2 years(?) without a safe place to go to. I feel I have a stronger foundation now to take on life’s lessons. I can feel some extra support during my self reiking. I can tap out of my thinking mind (which has gotten really hard lately) and listen to the subtle gentle whispers from beyond.  And the change I’ve seen in others in the class during this time!! It’s just amazing witnessing women and people grow.   ~Anna

“I feel your support, plus trusting myself and trusting others. Also the extra discernment that has come from feeling safety around others has helped me feel when someone isn’t a safe person and I can love them at a distance. I wish I could tell you all the ways that You and Reiki and this class have helped me. I wish I could find words for all of it. I am not who I was 6 months ago and I wouldn’t have come this far without Reiki. I’ve had therapy during this time, but it would have all been cerebral without Reiki. Reiki connected me to my self again and showed me it was safe to also connect with others.”   ~Meghan
