Naaz began her Reiki journey at a time in her life when she needed to heal. It was 2006. Six months earlier, she had been in a car accident in Japan. And as a result, her left hand and right leg did not function properly. All of her regular activities came to a standstill. She couldn’t even wash her face without help. Having always been an active, independent person, Naaz couldn’t accept that this would be her life, that she would be dependent on others for simple tasks.
Conventional medicine had failed her. Naaz had undergone a semi-successful surgery, but there was still work to be done. Unfortunately, her Japanese doctors told her this was all they could do. As a next step Naaz was to go into rehabilitation to gain some control of her muscles again. She was not given a timeline. The feeling was that it would be a very long time before her body would be hers again… if ever.
So wheelchair in tow, Naaz headed to India in search of alternate solutions. She tried various holistic healing methods, including Yoga and Ayurveda, but none of them helped. But finally, she discovered Reiki.
At that time, It seemed like every other person in India had learned Reiki level 1. So Naaz did a bit of research and decided to learn it herself. She became a Reiki Master in no time, and was determined to use Reiki to heal herself. Her plan proved effective — she practiced Reiki as often as she could, and soon regained full use of her hand and leg. People began to notice, and asked her to teach them this form of healing.
The truth was, Naaz could effectively heal herself and others using Reiki, but she didn’t have enough information to teach it. In 2008, she headed to Japan and retrained with Japan Reiki Association, completed their teacher’s program, and became the first non-Japanese certified teacher at JRA. Naaz then established the India chapter in 2009.
Naaz is always busy travelling between Japan, India and Canada — so be sure to take advantage of her expertise when she is here in Toronto. She has a lot to share about her personal journey with Reiki. She is also very intuitive, and often uses crystals to enhance your session and expedite the healing process.
When presented with a problem, Naaz’s response is: “Maybe Reiki?” The way she sees it, Reiki is always part of the solution. So if you want to resolve an issue, give it a try!
