Check out our lineage
A Direct Lineage
Reiki is passed from hand to hand from an initiating Master. Brian Brunius studied Usui Shiki Ryoho with John Harvey Gray, who was the longest practicing Reiki Master in the West and one of the earliest Masters initiated by Hawayo Takata.
We Practice What We Teach
At NYC Reiki Center, we believe the practice of Reiki is our greatest teacher, and we could not teach our students what we do not use daily on ourselves and others. This is why we are a full-time private practice and school.
Our Ongoing Commitment
Our commitment exceeds a two-hour session or 16-hour class through post-treatment check-ins with clientele and continuing education classes, events, and circles for students. As much as you want Reiki in your life, we will support you.
The Highest Standards
From the sheets and table you’ll lie on to the follow-up conversation we’ll have after your session to assuring your utmost privacy and confidentiality in treatment, we will serve you with the highest professional standards available.
Students & Clients Agree
We’re grateful for the kind words from our students and clients, and hope their experiences will help you decide if NYC Reiki Center where you should start, or continue, your Reiki journey to better understand yourself and heal.

Brian Brunius is the real deal. He exudes a peaceful calm, he is literally on a different level. He has such a lovely way of speaking and imparting the story of reiki. I could listen to him for hours. I have had treatments with Brian as well as completing various trainings with him. Brian’s amazing energy and hilarious sense of humor will endear him to you immediately. The techniques he has taught me have quite literally changed my life. If you are curious about reiki, treat yourself to a session with Brian and if you are interested in training in reiki, this is absolutely your man. He is authentic, empathic and a true healer. I would give him 10,000 stars if it were available. Truly, an amazing human being.

During this most difficult time of my life, the only thing that saved me from going crazy was my weekly sessions with Brian.

I couldn’t have done it without all the help and support I received from Reiki! A million thanks for getting me through a tough transition.
Though you probably wouldn’t remember me from the four sessions we had years ago, the things you told me sent me in a new direction and have completely changed my life. No one person has ever had such an incredible impact on me. I am forever grateful!
Roma, Saratoga Springs
Thank you, Brian, for your incredible and loving style. Every time I come for a session I am anxious and racing. By the end I am restored to peace and serenity. It’s some kind of magic you use on me that lets me sleep and feel easy again. And it works EVERY time! Eternal thanks.
I don’t have enough good things to say about Reiki. I’m just glad more people don’t know about it. I feel like the Reiki center is my secret library, and when I’m there it’s mine and no one and nothing can disturb my happiness. Thanks to Brian and all the students at the Reiki Circle for treating me and helping me sleep again. It really worked!

One of the most peaceful hours I’ve had in New York my whole life! Brian is calm and centered and brings you right there with him almost immediately. Truly a valuable experience!
Alison, New York
Please don’t be fooled by the hype. There are others out there called Reiki Masters, but Brian is the REAL deal. He brings genuine intuition and integrity to the traditional practice of Reiki. If you are looking for an authentic Reiki treatment or training in NYC, Brian is a phenomenal choice. I’ve worked one-on-one and in workshops with other energy and spiritual practitioners at top wellness destinations and institutions, and Brian clearly belongs among the elite group of professionals in his craft.
Kerrie, New York
I’ve been interested in energy work for some time now and it took a while for me to find the person to give me my first reiki treatment. I absolutely LOVE Brian. He is so personable and so genuine and that means a lot to me. As for me being a skeptic of reiki itself….turns out its real. You can FEEL the energy. I enjoyed my session with Brian so much I’ve already signed up for the my first reiki COURSE. Whoop whoop!
Brian is an amazing healer, master, and teacher. His calming benevolent presence makes you feel at ease whence you enter his office, and he’s always sure to greet you with a welcoming, loving smile. I’ve only had one private session with Brian (which was incredible) and it convinced me of the power of Reiki and I quickly signed up for his Reiki Lv 1 course. I’ve been practicing for about a half a year now and can’t wait to sign up for his Lv 2. I recommend Brian to everyone who’s interested in alternative methods of healing, and anyone who wants to expand their mind, heart, and consciousness. It’s done wonders for me, and I’m sure it’ll do wonders for you. Brian is an extraordinary person, who offers an extraordinary service, plain and simple.
Stephanie, New Haven
Brian is an amazing teacher and healer. He takes his time during Reiki sessions to understand his client and assist them in what first brought them to Reiki. After I had learned about Reiki from a friend, I searched for Reiki masters in NYC and happened upon Brian’s studio – I feel fortunate enough to be both a client and a student almost two years after my first Reiki class. Brian’s guidance has helped bring tremendous healing and new experiences into my world. Both my family and friends have been referred to NYC Reiki Center and hope this review will serve to recommend others.
Gia, New York
My reiki session with Brian was really incredible. Halfway through the session I felt unbelievably relaxed even though I was going through an extremely stressful situation in my life. I was also recovering from a very toxic relationship and seemed to feel like a burden from that situation had been lifted after the session. If you are having trouble getting over any situation that may be spiritually or physically difficult, or if you just want some advice of a really gifted and spiritually in-touch healer, then you should try a Reiki session with Brian. I don’t think every Reiki healer is good enough to give a try, but Brian is probably the best one in the New York area.
Sam S., New York
Brian is the real deal. In a field that is unregulated and can sometimes be hocus-pocus-ey, he is truly a veteran expert who brings to bear decades of training and experience. He can pin-point the problem areas in my life, and applies an extra dose of healing energy to help me move forward. I would trust Brian to help me fix any problem in my life.
Christopher T., San Francisco, CA
“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.”
Andrew S., Los Angeles, 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.”
