Reiki Comes to NHTI

New holistic health classes teach ancient healing art
Brenda J. Paquette

CONCORD — New this spring, NHTI will be offering a four-class program in the ancient healing art of Reiki, leading to a Reiki Master Certificate.

Reiki is a laying-on of hands healing technique thought to be thousands of years old.  It is a very simple yet powerful healing art that can be used on yourself as well as others and can easily be learned by everyone.  Reiki is a sacred healing force that nourishes, harmonizes, balances and empowers every aspect of life -- physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.  It’s used to support the healing process of almost any illness, induce relaxation, reduce stress and increase general wellness.

NHTI’s Reiki classes will be taught by Brenda J. Paquette, a Usui Reiki Master/Teacher, Lightarian® Reiki Master, Angel Healing Practitioner, Spiritual Life Coach and Spirit Releasement Facilitator.  Brenda is also a contributing author for an anthology eBook titled "Divine Inspirations, Stories of Awakening & Empowerment by Everyday Lightworkers."

Brenda says, "I love teaching Reiki and helping students to connect with Reiki energies, sharing with them the ability to assist themselves and others towards wellness."  Learn more about Brenda at her website,
