Reiki and Healing Touch

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese healing technique that activates the body’s natural healing process.  It allows positive energy to revive and repair, promoting a natural balance between mind, body, and spirit.  Reiki increases energy levels, reduces stress, and allows the body to self-heal.  When used in conjunction with other rehabilitation practices, it can decrease recovery time and lesson possible side effects. 

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.

Healthy touch causes your brain to release oxytocin, known as the “bonding hormone.” This stimulates the release of other feel-good hormones, such as dopamine and serotonin, while reducing stress hormones, such as cortisol and norepinephrine.

Reiki is not magic or woo-woo.   It is just a reminder for your body and mind to return to peace.  Rest and peace facilitates optimal healing and well-being. 

Water Reiki   $75+

Water Reiki is similar to Watsu, a form of aquatic bodywork used for deep relaxation and passive aquatic therapy.  While floating in warm water, I gently cradle, move, massage, and stretch you.  This can be done at a hotsprings or private hot tub under the stars.  This therapy is deeply relaxing and gentle.

Reiki   $75+

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

AromaTouch  $60+

The AromaTouch Technique is a simple yet powerful way to provide every individual with healing touch and an essential oil experience.  The AromaTouch Technique is about connecting with another person on an emotional level, in a safe, healing environment, and allowing the body to return to balance and wholeness.

Testimonials from Clients

Shared  from a 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
