Ikuko

 

Born in 1973 and raised in Japan. I recieved my B.A in Policy Mgt with focus on environmental education. While in Japan, I was introduced to Native American culture and it changed my life. I quit my job and came to the U.S in 2000.
While majoring in Parks and Recreation Mgt, I visited Hopi Reservations and lived several summers at Cheyenne River Reservation. I participated in ceremonies and native teachings, and worked as a camp counselor for the Sioux YMCA summer camp. I also was an interpretive ranger on Grand Canyon National Park, explaining the relationship between Nature and Man and helping environmental education programs for children.
Around that time, I met Reiki. I felt so natural when I met Reiki that I did not have any doubt or hesitation to learn it right away.
After getting the Bachelor's degree, I went to massage school and got a license. I enjoyed my career as a massage/reiki therapist at Miiamo Spa at Enchantment Resort in Sedona,AZ for a while and started my own practice and did healing work for 14 years.
Also a (Native American) pipe carrier, and a mother of 12 year boy.
Now I've moved to a beautiful mountain town of Durango, Colorado and now have my own practice again. My enthusiasm for "listening" never end. Listening to your body and being a interpreter between you and your body in many levels, and letting healings happen...thank you for letting me serve you.
