Hi, my name is Nicole Schaffer. I’m a wife, a pet parent, a yoga teacher, an amateur chef and baker, a perpetual student, and a spiritual seeker. I have a personal history with a debilitating chronic illness that has taken me many years to understand and overcome. I’ve gained and lost nearly 100 pounds during this time and have maintained my weight for nearly ten years through healthy eating and exercise (including yoga!). I enjoy helping people feel better because I know what it’s like to not feel well.
My search for reclaiming my health and wellness has taken me to many different places: various specialty doctors, chiropractors, and massage therapists, and to many different treatments: prescription medications, supplements, acupuncture, massage, physical therapy, and exercise. It wasn’t until I turned my focus to spirituality that I found the missing piece in the puzzle of my health.
After many years of living a somewhat normal but limited life and still struggling with my health, I tried Reiki, an ancient form of energy healing. I felt immediately that this was a life-changer for me, so I started researching it and that lead/led me back to the spiritual studies that have interested me since I was a child. I’ve discovered that I’m an empath, an intuitive, and a highly sensitive person, meaning my body and spirit easily picks up on the energy, feelings, emotions, and even illnesses, of the people and places around me.
Applying what I have learned (and am learning) about spirituality and energy have made big shifts in my health and my outlook on life. I first took the level one Reiki course so that I could treat myself, but I knew that eventually, I wanted to be able to offer Reiki to others. Now I’m a certified Reiki master and I am so happy and blessed to be able to offer Reiki to you. It is my intention to be the catalyst for change in your life that leads to healing and a happier, healthier, more positive life.
