"The Secret Art of Inviting Happiness, The miraculous medicine of all diseases"- Usui Mikao


WNY Life Coaching Center is a Professional Member of the  Reiki Membership Association. We  follow the code of ethics and professional standards of practice set by the International Center for Reiki. 


Energy-based healing (Reiki) is a centuries-old practice. Many traditional healing modalities are rooted in the belief of balance and harmony of life force energy—the energy that flows through all living things.  Energy Healing recognizes that energetic imbalances and disturbances to energy flow, even subtle, are the cause of maladies.   Our energy flow is known as Life Force energy. There are several school of thoughts  such as Traditional Chinese Medicine, where energy is referred to as "chi" and energy pathways as "meridians." In Japanese medicine, this energy is referred to as "ki." And in ancient Indian medicine—Ayurveda—this life force is known as "prana" and travels on "nadis."

Western medicine  refers to this energy as the biofield.  Although it's an anomaly to traditional Western medicine and naked to the human eye, science validates its existence and modalities such as reiki are becoming widely accepted as complementary therapy in medicine. 

What Is Reiki?

As defined by the The International Center for Reiki Training:

  • Reiki is a Japanese Energy Healing technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive.  If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. 

  • A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results. 

  • Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
  • Our certified reiki Masters deliver this treatment with the most mindful care and intention. We are committed to being the purest conduit for reiki.
