As a former massage therapist, I had some knowledge of Reiki and energy healing but never experienced it for myself. I knew it was a form of "energy therapy" that helped balance the negative and positive energy within the body that may be causing stress or disease. It is a subtle yet powerful treatment that can be hands off or on. By clearing out the negative energy in the body, Reiki helps you receive positive energy and life force, causing negative energy to almost fall away. I had yet to meet anyone in the area who practiced Reiki. When I discovered that the amazing owner of Clay Corner Inn, Nicky Aymes, was a certified Reiki Practitioner, I made an appointment. What a profound, positive change in my physical and mental wellbeing Reiki has made. From the first session, I knew I discovered something special and have been receiving Reiki for 7 months now.

It is hard to put into words how Reiki makes you feel, and I can only speak from my experience. I can best describe it using an ailment that has plagued me for years. I have had a foot paralysis with severe neuropathy since 2001. It felt like 1,000 bees were stinging the top of my foot every day. It disrupted my sleep, affected my mood and I did feel a little helpless because I could not find relief no matter what I tried. After 1 Reiki session, the foot pain diminished and now it is almost non-existent. WOW! The relief of my foot pain is a Reiki miracle in my book and a testament to the benefits of Reiki. The feeling of serenity and calm I feel after each session is like no other treatment I have experienced including massage therapy.

I even became Reiki I and II certified in Nicky's Reiki Journey classes, so that I can continue on my path of holistic healing. My advice to anyone who is curious isgive it a try and see what happens. Why not! You will be amazed at the difference even one session will make on your wellbeing.

Love and Light, KAT


Dear Nicky,

Experiencing Reiki on your table has changed my life and opened my heart in ways I did not think were possible. Your transmission of Reiki has been a powerful yet gentle healing modality for issues I had stored which were both old and new. The healing I have experienced has been profound. The world would be a better place if everyone got Reiki from you!

Much love and light -


Nicky,

Thank you so much for the amazing Reiki workshop and attunement. It was truly a transformative experience. Your energy and knowledge are a blessing to me. I am grateful to have found my teacher.

Huge love


Thank you so much for your beautiful healing sessions on our dog, Lila. The final session where you prepared Lila for her passing was one of the most powerfully moving experiences in my life. It gave me great comfort to know she was ready for her big journey. Thank you for holding space for us during that difficult time and helping us to all deal with her transition.

Peace and love, my dear friend
