Brian Brunius, founder and director of the NYC Reiki Center, is a Reiki Master Instructor who sees clients in his Manhattan office and provides consultation by telephone to those outside of the NYC area. He travels extensively, sharing the energy of Reiki all over the world.

Brian began his study of Reiki in 1995 when he took the first degree course with John Harvey Gray in New York City. In 1997 he took the second degree with John. In 2010 he completed a three-year master apprenticeship to enable him to teach Reiki courses as a Master recognized by The Reiki Alliance, an international community of Reiki Masters dedicated to the practice of Usui Shiki Ryoho, the Usui System of Natural Healing.

Since 1997, Brian has developed a reputation for Absent Treatments, working with people across great distances and time zones to help them achieve their healing goals. He is also available for in-office Reiki treatments in New York City. Please use the appointment form on this site to schedule an in-office session with him, or call Brian at (917) 573-4439. He teaches Reiki classes monthly in New York City, and is available by request to teach in other locations, for organizations, and for corporate events and gatherings.

In this 54-minute video from the Souljourns series, Brian discusses his 18-year connection with Indian holy man Sathya Sai Baba, who appeared to him in dreams and drew him to India to live and work. During this time, Brian’s interest in spirituality and healing gestated, as did his interest in service, resulting eventually in his decision to take up a full-time Reiki practice.

Client Testimonials

Thank you Brian for sending the Reiki healing to my daughter Estelle. I know that your loving light helped ease her fever pains and soothed her through her treatment of Lyme’s disease. I was so frightened for her health and knowing that you were on our team really made me feel like I was doing all I could for her.” ~Melissa K., Scranton, PA

Brian is an amazing Reiki healer. He has been giving me Reiki for the last year. The Reiki energy has improved my health and has assisted me in getting through emotional times in my life. I first received distance Reiki sessions during the loss of my mother. The Reiki he sent left me feeling unusually calm given the circumstances of a major loss. In addition, Brian has sent me Reiki through two surgeries and lung issues. I love the way I feel after I receive Reiki from Brian. After a year of Reiki my mind is mostly calm, my health improving, and my mental state positive.” ~Christopher T., San Francisco, CA

I discovered Reiki after suffering a serious health issue and it really helped my to relax and recover in an amazing way. The first time I saw Brian I was ready for my usual pleasant Reiki experience. Well I had the most profound healing and relaxing experience I have ever had and I have practiced yoga for years. The kind energy and mannerisms of Brian along with his very knowledgeable practice made for a brilliant Reiki session. I can’t wait to pay NYC Reiki Center another visit.” ~Andrew S., Los Angeles, CA
