Joan Nordhagen is a certified Usui Reiki Master and one of only a few exclusive Jikiden Reiki practitioners in South Florida. Joan also holds a Shihan teacher level training status and is certified by the Jikiden Institute in Kyoto, Japan. She is a member of the International Center for Reiki Practitioners (ICRT), the International Association for Reiki Practitioners (IARP) and the International Jikiden Institute (Jikiden Reiki Kenkyukai) through Japan as well as the NPO International Jikiden Reiki Association. Additionally, Joan is an Akashic Records Consultant and a certified Mindfulness Teacher for children.
Joan earned her Shoden, Okuden and Shihan Kaku level training with Frank Arjava Petter, world renowned Reiki historian and author (with direct lineage) and her Shihan level with Tadao Yamaguchi, President of the Jikiden Reiki Institute of Japan (also with direct lineage). She is a facilitator of both Western and Eastern styles of Reiki but specializes in Jikiden Reiki. Joan also offers Shoden and Okuden level classes (Levels 1 and 2) and is certified with Japan to train practitioners.
Jikiden Reiki (meaning “directly handed down”) is the original Japanese Usui Reiki method, as practiced, taught and intended from its inception in Japan, with no western influence or adaptation to the original teachings. It is Reiki in its purest form.
Joan’s intuitive Reiki sessions have gained the attention of both national and international clients. Joan began her Reiki journey in 2015 after a close friend was diagnosed with breast cancer. After a year of Reiki sessions to supplement her medical treatments, Joan's friend was declared “Cancer-free.” Joan continued to personally use Reiki, but was prompted to expand her practice to include healing others when, during an Ayurvedic massage, the therapist touched her hand and exclaimed, “Oh! You’re a healer.”
Despite obtaining degrees and recognition in the fields of Psychology and Education, Joan has dedicated herself to art of healing. She is caring, empathic, and highly qualified to help with any physical and/or mental health concern. Joan has experience with cancer, depression, PTSD, stress, anxiety, distant treatments (Enkaku Chiryo), children, expectant moms and has even treated animals.
Joan has worked with many people with diverse issues and possesses a true love for healing. She brings love and compassion to each of her sessions and has seen her clients transform and evolve. Her passion is to see clients heal and thrive.
