"Among Reiki practitioners in New York, Jyogan is a rare gem. The energy that comes through him during a Reiki session is strong and authentic. The heat that radiates through his hands as he delivers the treatment is nearly overwhelming at times. Not everyone who claims to practice Reiki has such a powerful and positive impact. I'm really glad to say Jyogan is an authentic Reiki practitioner and a compassionate and healing man."
-Brian Brunius, Western Reiki Master​
after a treatment

"I did a lot of research before I decided to go see Jyogan.  There's so many styles of Reiki and all sound interesting.  If I'm going to learn something, I want what I consider the most authentic experience possible. Well, Jyogan teaches an Eastern form of Reiki called Komyo Reikido. 
Before I took Reiki I,  I went to the monthly Reiki shares... Everyone gets to participate in Reiki and see just how real it is.  I definitely felt my hands get warmer from Reiki, and when everyone laid hands on me, I definitely felt my head getting very hot.  There's also lots of discussion,snacks and breaks in between.
Jyogan is a very nice, very approachable person.  He explains everything well.
When I went to Reiki I, the class went on for over 6hours.  I felt like it could have gone on even longer, for the wealth of knowledge provided... 
Reiki I attunement is a wonderful experience..."

-Melissa P (Reiki 1 and 2)
