SF REIKI CENTER is a traditional private practice and school of Reiki. Our mission is to provide a safe space for physical, emotional, and spiritual transformation for our clients and students. We follow the traditions of Hawayo Takata and the discipline of Usui Shiki Ryoho, the Usui System of Natural Healing.  

SF REIKI CENTER offers private Reiki sessions, Reiki Clinic, Reiki Classes, a Certified Reiki Practitioner Training Program, and continuing education workshops.  Additionally, SF REIKI CENTER hosts events and reiki circles and provides educational and professional resources to the Global Reiki Community.

SF REIKI CENTER honors and acknowledges Brian Brunius of NYC REIKI CENTER for his unwavering mentorship, guidance, and support.  Christopher Tellez is a Reiki Master and founder of SF REIKI CENTER.  






SF REIKI CENTER holds space for Reiki students to grow, learn, and develop one’s gifts and full potential.  Within this sphere, we are committed to connecting with our larger Usui Shiki Ryoho community by attending retreats, events, and workshops sponsored by our international colleagues. SF REIKI CENTER offers services to connect our students to the global Reiki community.



Receiving Reiki initiations changes us by increasing the flow of energy into and around our bodies. Through Reiki initiations, we make it possible for students to offer Reiki to themselves and others.  Through ongoing Reiki practice, the flow of energy will help students overcome their greatest obstacles and fully inhabit their lives and personal missions.



All beings are One. By expanding our consciousness, we help all sentient beings. Through assisting another to grow their consciousness, we empower ourselves and all other people. We use the support and community of the SF Reiki Center to increase the consciousness of our members.



The spiritual teacher Sathya Sai Baba often exhorted us, "Love all, Serve all." This instruction helps us keep our lives, and daily activities focused on this singular thought: “What do I have to give to each person or situation I encounter?” At SF Reiki Center, we believe thinking of others first, takes us out of our ego and puts Reiki in the forefront of our lives and daily activities. We offer ourselves each day in the service of Reiki and ask that we may be shown how to make a difference in the world.


SF REIKI CENTER is located in the Mission at 3150 18th Street Suite 243 San Francisco CA. SF REIKI CENTER offers private Reiki Sessions, Reiki Classes, and a Reiki Clinic. This video introduces you to SF REIKI CENTER.
