Sanae Okada has been helping others through the healing arts since 2000. Over the past 19 years, Sanae has received training in and practiced a range of holistic therapies including Jikiden Reiki, shiatsu, and other forms of bodywork. 

A native of Vancouver, Sanae first developed her healing skills and knowledge at the Canadian Acupressure Institute in Victoria. Her talent in the healing arts was soon recognized. Since then she has worked internationally as a holistic health practitioner in London, Grand Cayman and Whistler.

In 2009, Sanae took a step further into her journey in the healing field and became a Jikiden Reiki practitioner and six years later, she became Shihankaku Jikiden Reiki teacher. Among her teachers was Tadao Yamaguchi Sensei, founder of the Jikiden Reiki Institute in Japan, which is a leading institute that teaches the original form of Reiki. Sanae found the ancient practice of Jikiden Reiki to be a powerful yet gentle way to effectively heal a wide range of conditions experienced by many of her clients. 

Sanae is one of a few Shihankaku teachers in Canada certified to teach Jikiden Reiki, Shoden (Level One). She is also a registered Shihankaku teacher with the Jikiden Reiki Association of Canada and Jikiden Reiki Institute of Japan.

Through Jikiden Reiki Seminars Sanae provides seminars for individuals and groups. She teaches the ancient healing art of Jikiden Reiki so that people can help others and help themselves.

She has successfully used her healing arts skills, including Jikiden Reiki, to treat clients with chronic to acute conditions including cancer, multiple sclerosis, concussions, various injuries, trauma, etc.

"I AM HONOURED TO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO TEACH JIKIDEN REIKI SO PEOPLE HAVE A SIMPLE YET EFFECTIVE Self-Care Tool They can use IN THEIR DAILY LIVEs"
