Intuitive Healing Testimonials
“My heart and lungs were damaged from Covid which meant that I needed pain medication, Oxygen and was unable to work let alone walk around the block. My doctors offered little hope or guidance for my recovery. After the first 2 Zoom sessions with Nikki, I no longer needed pain medication! Then I needed less and less Oxygen and found that I could do more physically. While this was happening, my recurring night terrors also became positive dreams. At my last checkup, tests confirmed that there is more Oxygen going into and out of my lungs! Her work was vital for my recovery, I am so grateful.”

“For two years, I had a small bladder stone that was verified via radiological scan and caused occult blood in my urine. In a single session with Nikki, the stone was detached from the bladder wall. Since that session, I have been completely asymptomatic. My medical exam today confirmed that the stone is gone. This result was nothing short of remarkable and I am so pleased."

"I am a late-diagnosed Autistic female with a few decades-worth of trauma and chronic illness. Where the medical system failed, Nikki provided — without fail. While working with Nikki consistently, I left sessions with a 0 pain level after it had been a 7 or 8 prior to our session. I am 39 and have not felt that much ease since I was 25. I was a completely non-functioning person, could barely walk when I met Nikki. Through pretty much our work only, I have now signed up for a gym and can even workout with the machines. Nikki and her process, energy, experience and expertise, hands down have saved my life. I cannot recommend her more highly.”
- Vinnie Elizabeth, Autistic / PDA / ADHD Speaker, Consultant, Visionary & Comedienne
"Nikki is a true healer. She truly cares, really listens and tunes into what's going on physically with her clients in a powerful way. She has helped me regain sensation in two fingers from a surgery several years ago, reduced chronic pain from arthritis in my feet, knees and back, even demonstrated in a short session that my hearing loss could improve. I was a skeptic, but now really believe in the work that Nikki is doing."
- Terry B., Retired
“Nikki is an amazing healer. She has helped me tremendously with my knee and on my hormones that cause me all sorts of issues. Cysts have reduced in size after sessions and I was off my painkillers from my knee surgery in two days because of her work. When I first went to PT, they also found that I was weeks ahead of the typical progress. She also has restored the energy of my sassy Shih Tzu who we need to keep around longer. Her practices work and we just love her.”
- Carly Ozard, Electronic Music Vocalist and Songwriter
"I had lost a great deal of my taste and smell due to Covid, and even 2 years post Covid, one session with Nikki helped me so much! I strongly recommend her!"
- Kate Kerwin, Teacher at Evanston Township High School
Before seeing Nikki, having had Covid a month prior, I felt ok but still not quite myself. A slight mugginess hung over me - a bit more tired than usual, difficulty concentrating and heaviness in my head. The zoom session with her was hypnotic and enlightening - I felt a ‘clearing’ in my nose, ears and forehead; less pressure overall in my head and a calmness afterwards. Having never tried this type of healing before, I’m sure I will be doing it again."
- Cathy Graham, Senior Marketing Director at Pepsi Lipton
“I had bad sciatica pain in my lower back for over a year. It hurt in the morning and was aggravated easily with common daily activity. The pain was about a 7 out of 10. After one session with Nikki, it went away and it has not returned since! I highly recommend her!”
- Lisa Byrne, Artist
“Holy moly! My session with Nikki was nothing short of miraculous. I came in to our remote session having just hurt my shoulder a bit lifting something heavy. She began the session working on my shoulder, and when she was done, not only was the pain gone... my shoulder was visibly lower than the other one! When I’m in times of stress, my shoulders tend to be hiked up. She then worked on my other shoulder and that one released significantly as well. When I went to see my massage therapist later in the week, she exclaimed “You look great! Your shoulders are the lowest I’ve seen them in a long time! What did you do?” In addition to my shoulders, Nikki helped me with ankle pain and sinus blockage post-Covid. I can’t wait for my next session. Thank you so much Nikki!”
- Lindsay Wolgel, Actor - Singer - Dancer and Voice Teacher
"I started having wrist pain that effected my day to day activities in August. My carpal tunnel has been exhausted by working from home on my computer and it began effecting my ability to fall asleep. Nikki worked on my wrists for a 60 minute healing session in which I felt my pain slowly go from a 7/10 to a 2/10. Over the hour I felt my pain move and pulse and diminish… the next day I was surprised to wake up with a low 2/10 feeling in my wrists! My session with Nikki was eye opening because she could truly follow the pain and went back to the left wrist after working on my right wrist without me saying that it needed more attention. I would recommend Nikki’s services to anyone seeking relief from chronic pain and will be returning to her table soon."
- Annie Chester, Mezzo-Soprano
“Nikki is wonderful, and her healing really works! I have suffered from back pain for years. After one session with Nikki my pain subsided. I didn’t even realize until weeks later (when Nikki asked how I was feeling) that I had had zero pain since her session! I was a skeptic but now believe in the power of healing as this really worked for me.“
- Anna Broccolo, Corporate Counsel at Dorilton
“It has been wonderful to be in healing sessions on zoom with Gilded Hands. The value for what is paid is off the chart, and there are amazing benefits to working with Nikki. For example, after going in with extreme pain in the shoulder, the session not only eased the pain, but it felt that the awfulness of those feelings were transformed into something positive, like a warm feeling in the center of the chest. Gilded Hands has also helped with virus recovery, fatigue, sensitivity to light, and emotional issues. Thanks so much for the time and attention over these weeks!”
- Lindsay Burck, Artist
“I’ve been suffering from lingering dizziness after I had a severe case of vertigo more than half a year ago. Just a few sessions in with Nikki, I feel better than I’ve felt since the onset of my vertigo. And while the focus of our sessions has been on this issue, I’ve also noticed improvements in other minor ailments that occasionally bothered me in the past - icing on the cake! The fact that I’m able to benefit from her healing through Zoom sessions (it works!) in the comfort of my home, is simply fantastic. I cannot recommend Nikki highly enough!”
- Tascha A., New York
“I deal with a lot of pain and tension in my neck and shoulders. When the pain is at its worst, it causes headaches and stabbing pains down into the shoulder blade. As Nikki worked on me over zoom, I could feel her transition from one area to another energetically and the pain just dissipated as she went. After the session, I had no pain and not even a hint of a headache. I felt relaxed and energized at the same time. Such an amazing gift she has.”
- Jennifer Fitter, Licensed Massage Therapist
“Nikki is a true healer. She has a gift. Her energy is so pure and positive. I have experienced her Balinese healing process over zoom a few times, and it is truly an amazing experience. She healed me from pain I had been experiencing off and on for more than 6 months in one session! (It's been a year and the pain is still gone.) I truly encourage you to come with an open mind and let her do the work.“
- Katie Dunn, Commercial Real Estate Finance Executive and Board Director
"I have chronic pain in both shoulders and do regular PT, cortisone shots, radiofrequency ablation etc. I felt bands of heat and tingling expanding over each area when Nikki worked on it. The most pivotal moment of the session was when I felt something travel from each shoulder and out both of my arms. I started to feel better and better after our session and now my shoulders and neck feel so much better. This healing modality gets to the root of the pain incredibly effectively.”
- David M. Farrington, Actor
“I lost most of my senses of taste and smell back in March due to Covid. I felt tingling in my nose during my healing with Nikki and then both senses came back fully: I can smell and taste things I hadn’t previously noticed, experience after tastes again and I now have the full intensity of both senses back.”
- Paulina Naroznik, Head of North America, Portfolio Summits
"I struggled for 6 months with shoulder pain and limited range of motion after my second COVID vaccine. I went to an orthopedist and they couldn’t help me with it, and stretching exercises further aggravated it. I started working with Nikki and with 4 sessions, she was able to stop the pain and bring full range of motion back to my shoulder. During the sessions I felt a lot of warmth and pressure release. I’m so happy she was able to help me! Now I don’t need to be afraid of getting my booster shot!"
- Danielle C., Executive Director of Technology Platform Development, Kaplan
"Our 14-year-old Maine Coon cat, Leo, has arthritis in his hips. Not only was it interfering with his quality of life, but he had begun to fall. From the first session with Nikki, his movement was more free and he was obviously more comfortable. He is able to jump onto surfaces without assistance again and has regained full control of his hips. No more wobbling! Nikki also addressed his hyperthyroidism, and his most recent lab results were in the ideal range. Leo clearly enjoys his treatments: he starts purring as soon as he hears Nikki’s voice. We are delighted with the improvement in his functioning and are so grateful to Nikki for helping him feel better."
- Susan C., Retired
"I had a zoom healing session with Nikki to help with lingering COVID congestion and fatigue. As she worked on my sinuses, I could feel heat and release of pressure. I felt so relaxed, at peace and able to breathe fully during the session. I woke up the next morning able to breathe through my nose, which had felt glued shut the previous few days. Each day since, my energy has increased and today, I was able to do some yoga when a week ago, downward dog was not an option for me. I can't recommend her highly enough."
- Kathy Becker, Actor
"As a Reiki master, I’m tuned into energy sources and how they work. This is a powerful modality and Nikki is a talented healer! During my sessions, I felt varying degrees of tingling, heat and pressure. At one point, I felt pressure in my abdomen and then a kind of unwinding. My nose is often runny and I felt it dry up. I also felt my neck and shoulders get a lot looser. This work is cumulative, I can’t wait to see where I am after a few more sessions."
- Nicole Wichinsky, Talent Agent at Stewart Talent and Reiki Practitioner
"Yogi struggles with many things but for the last several months he's been vomiting in the middle of the night. We’ve tried many things but decided to see if some energy healing would help. Since this session he's been having good nights which is really exciting!"
- Danielle C., Executive Director of Technology Platform Development, Kaplan
"Pain PSA: One of the therapies we tried to ease Henry’s pain after his cancer diagnosis was a beautiful Balinese healing modality offered by my friend and fellow artist Nikki Yarnell of Gilded Hands. She has also worked on my back post-surgery and I’ve personally felt the difference. It was *incredible* to watch her work on Henry, who as an animal had no blocks or preconceived notions about the process. I truly know it extended his time with us and made it more comfortable. This healing reduces physical and emotional pain of all types. I’d love to tell you more about our experience."
- Lara Hayhurt Compton, Actor
"I'd been having pain for several months in the area where my leg joins my torso around my right hip. This pain was strong and always present when I walked. During a course of about five treatments with Nikki, the pain gradually lessened, then faded away completely and has not returned. It was only after these treatments that I learned from an MRI that I had two partial tendon tears in the hip area as well as cartilage tearing in the hip socket itself! Pretty amazing pain to overcome! While she was at it, Nikki also treated the acid reflux that I'd been experiencing for months. I needed daily acid reducing medication to keep this under control. However, after only a few treatments, I have not needed any medication for the last week."
