"Nicky" is a certified International Practitioner for Holistic Medicine as well as a Professional Member of the International Center for Reiki Training. Through her awareness of the Soul's energy and connection to the Higher Spiritual Teachers, receiving their wisdom and guidance,  she is able to read your energy and find where the healing needs to be achieved.

Nicky comes from generations of healers. She is Clairsentient  & Claircognizance "clear feeling & knowing" which refers to a person who has the ability to connect on a high frequency level and feel and know what is hidden and acquire psychic  knowledge of where a person needs healing. With these clairs one has the ability to tell the physical makeup, health condition, personality and the character traits of a spirit entity while it is on earth. 


Nicky has the ability to connect and communicate via claircognizance. This clear recognition is simply knowing it through some gut instinct without any evidence. Claircognizants "know" specific things through their own psychic feelings, which are directly manifested as thoughts. This can be information and facts that seem to be downloaded from high-level communications with other forces of the universe. Perceptions and insights regarding people and circumstances from their Akashic Records. These are said to contain every bit of information from the entire human experience. The Akashic Records encompass all history of the universe, including each Soul’s karmic history. You can receive insight and many times some answers to your questions.


Nicky, with her husband Rick, own the Clay Corner Inn & Healing Space "Reiki Journey". A quaint Boutique Hotel downtown Blacksburg and opposite Virginia Tech. Nicky's "Reiki Journey" Healing Space is located on the premises of the Clay Corner Inn where sessions, weekend retreats and Reiki trainings are held.

Kathy M - Massage Therapist & Reiki Practitioner

As a former massage therapist, I had some knowledge of Reiki and energy healing but never experienced it for myself.  I had yet to meet anyone in the area who practiced Reiki.  When I discovered that the amazing owner of Clay Corner Inn, Nicky Aymes, was a certified Master Reiki Practitioner, I made an appointment.  What a profound, positive change in my physical and mental wellbeing Reiki has made.  From the first session, I knew I discovered something special and have been receiving Reiki for over 7 months now.

It is hard to put into words how Reiki makes you feel, and I can only speak from my experience.  I can best describe it using an ailment that has plagued me for years.  I have had a foot paralysis with severe neuropathy since 2001.  It felt like 1,000 bees were stinging the top of my foot every day.  It disrupted my sleep, affected my mood and I did feel a little helpless because I could not find relief no matter what I tried.  After 1 Reiki session, the foot pain diminished and now it is almost non-existent. WOW!  The relief of my foot pain is a Reiki miracle in my book and a testament to the benefits of Reiki.  The feeling of serenity and calm I feel after each session is like no other treatment I have experienced – including massage therapy.

I even became Reiki I and II certified in Nicky’s Reiki Journey classes, so that I can continue on my path of holistic healing.  My advice to anyone who is curious is…give it a try and see what happens.  Why not! You will be amazed at the difference even one session will make on your wellbeing. -Kat, VTech

I am a cancer patient.  I was misdiagnosed two years ago and learned that the cancer had spread this past summer.  After surgery, I am now in my fourth month of chemotherapy.
I also am participating in the Reiki journey with Nicola-Jayne Aymes.  Reiki is the perfect tool for my stress reduction.  It is a holistic approach to relaxation through Nicky as the healer.  I am grateful for Reiki as my attitude and outlook is now positive during this challenging time.  It has been the perfect medicine for me. -Connie , Physiotherapist
