"If we limit our beliefs, we limit our life and our health".
-Dr. Erika Duffy

Reiki is an ancient hands-on healing method derived from Tibet and re-discovered by Dr. Usui in the late 1800's.

Dr. Usui was a Japanese Christian teacher dedicated to his students. One day his students asked him two questions "Dr., do you believe in Jesus and do you believe in the Bible?" His answer was yes on both questions. "Then, the students asked, why could Christ heal and we cannot?" He stated that he did not know the answer to that question, but that we had to have faith that HE did and perhaps we will in time, know the answer. Well, they nor the good Dr. were satisfied with that answer which prompted him to resign that very day and travel all over the world in search of the answers. He ended in Tibet where he found the formula in the Indian sutras. He was prompted to fast and meditate for 21 days on how to receive the formula. During his mystical experience he received the healing energy and started healing immediately. He has trained many and his legend lives on.

Reiki is sweeping the country because it works!! Reiki enhances our ability to heal, boosts the immune system, shortens healing time, lowers stress and prevents illness. We are alive because a life force (energy) flows through us. It gets disrupted in its flow from negative thought forms we store in our unconscious and believe consciously about ourselves and our life. If this energy remains disrupted in its flow, our energy weakens (or our vibration lowers) leaving us very susceptible to disease, stress and illness. Reiki balances our energy, lifts our vibration, and releases the stress that create such a thing. If our energy stays high we remain balanced, happier,heathier, handle life better and create a better lifestyle for ourselves and others. It creates a feeling of inner peace and relaxation like no other you have ever experienced. It is as natural as stroking the cheek of a newborn or rubbing someone's tired shoulders. It is NOT mysterious, or supernatural, and is by no means New Age.

Reiki is Universal Life Force Energy that has always been there for us to tap into. It releases pain, whether it is emotional or physical. Reiki helps us to understand the underlying issue of a problem, enabling us to focus on, get rid of it and prevent it from entering our life again. It releases all energy blockages that prevent us from being who we truly are. As our vibrational energy increases, our bodies can heal! Reiki has worked from anything to a headache to cancer.

Reiki changes our life and puts us back on our path of peace, enlightenment, and joy. Used by professionals in hospitals everywhere, the benefits are endless. Reiki Practitioners use Reiki before and after surgery, releasing pain, increasing the immune system before and after chemotherapy, to name just a few. Reiki benefits both the practitioner and recipient. Both feel balanced, de-stressed and feel much better about themselves and their ability to handle every day life. ANYONE CAN LEARN!


"We, as human beings, are not powerless as we were always led to believe". -Dr. Erika Duffy

A journey in learning Reiki becomes a very rewarding experience. Knowing Reiki helps us meet the numerous challenges ahead. How? We store old emotions that influence our lives in our aura. Reiki helps balance and clear ourselves emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually. As we rid ourselves of these old hurts, we start to see ourselves and others differently. We start to look at what we might have done to create in our life what we do not want. Whether it is stress that we could have changed that affected our health, anger from relationships we never got over, or a job we got stuck in that we were too afraid of getting out of, we need to take responsibility for whatever all this creates in our life. As we take responsibility for ourselves, we become aware of other endless possibilities for change in our life. As we continue to heal ourselves, others around us will heal in return.


Learning Reiki helps us to remove stress that keeps us from evolving into our spirituality. As we become less stressfull, we see things differently and can make more positive choices for change in our life. It helps to balance all our energy physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. It is something we can do for ourselves and others, our pets, and the world.


It removes pain both physically and emotionally. It boosts the immune system and creates a faster healing time. In short, it keeps us from feeling powerless when we, or anyone else is in pain or stressed out. Our world is in drastic need of self healing. As we begin to love and heal ourselves, we are in a better position to love and heal others. As we become more positive and help others, our world will become a place of peace and love. It is our God given right to live the life we so richly deserve. We have been programmed from the start falsely to live the lives we now live. Stress incorporates our very existence. People get confused and do not know who they really are and their purpose in life. Reiki helps bring us on our journey of self discovery to change what is not working for us and to feel better about ourselves. It brings us to a happier life to love and see ourselves as we are, not as we falsely were led to believe. Learning Reiki is one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves. Practicing it every day to create more peace will keep us more aware and on our own path for personal spiritual self development.


"Reiki, in one phrase...change for the better. Reiki has opened doors of opportunity in my personal and professional life. Reiki has helped myself and others achieve a more balanced and better quality of life overall. If has given me the tools necessary to tackle life with the best outlook, to be non-judgmental, and to have compassion for all"
-H. Perry N.H.

"Reiki is a very valuable tool that I have been using for both professional and personal use. Erika has been an asset to our facility as a regular guest lecturer". -R. Cummings, C.E.O., Face Forward, Mass

"Reiki has made me much more aware of a lot of things such as vibration, attitude, coincidences and human nature. It has fascinated me. I feel as though it has opened up my mind. I am more understanding to people's negative reactions. The simple power of touch and positive energy can really change lives. As an Esthetician, I use Reiki on my clients to perform the best facial massage. As a mother, I use Reiki on my children when they seem to be frustrated and cannot put their feelings into words. Every night before I fall asleep, I do Reiki on myself to better myself and to find that comfort of inner peace within. It is almost unexplainable, but an awesome experience I enjoy sharing with others".
- Rosa D., Esthetician, Peabody, Ma.

"Dear Erika, I hope this letter reaches you in the best of health and spirit. I just wanted to take a minute to let you know how much you and the wonderful world of Reiki has changed my life. When I first met you in Jan. of 98, the pressure of being a single mother of two, opening an Esthetic School and clinging onto emotional issues from my childhood had me spinning out of control. It seemed like the faster I went the more ground I would seem to lose. At that time I believed that there was no hope of ever finding peace, just lots of stress, until I met you. I saw tranquility in your eyes and it made me want to trust you. I thank God every day that I did. When you started working with me, I began shedding layers of emotional luggage that I had been collecting diligently through my 39 years of life. Each time we dealt with one of the issues I had stuffed, the magnificient energy of Reiki would erase them one at a time. After working with you for about six months and becoming a Reiki Practitioner II, almost all of that heavy baggage is gone. I now credit each new day with enthusiasm and incorporate love and spirit in everyone around me. I believe I am at my best as a mother, teacher, Esthetician and friend. Every aspect of my life is rich in spirit and peaceful. Thank you so very much for guiding me into the warm tranquility I now posses. You will always be in my heart.
- L. Burchi, N.H.

"I had a very traumatic and abusive childhood which led me to "traditional psychotherapy". After six years and thousands of dollars, I could talk about what had happened but still carried with me pain and a darkness which never went away. I am proud to say that after only two Reiki sessions, the pain and darkness are gone, and I am finally at peace with who I am."
-H.B. , R.N., New Hampshire

"Dear Erika, you ask me how Reiki and C.O.R.E. (TM) Counseling has helped me and I don't know how to express in words what you have done for me. You helped me so much. You helped me to see that I wasn't alone as I thought I had been. You helped me to realize that so many people cared about me when I thought that there was no one. You helped me to see the world in a new light. You helped me to see that we are all in charge of our own lives and that changing ourselves is only as hard as we make it. I use the knowledge I learned from you and the Reiki you taught me daily. It helps me and others constantly. Thank you."
-A.D., New Hampshire

"After trying various alternative practices including acupuncture, reflexology and chiropractic manipulation, I discovered C.O.R.E.™ therapy and Reiki. Nothing has excited me or worked this effectively! As you know ten years ago being diagnosed with Kidney disease and needing a new one plus a new heart created my looking to other forms of healing. I have become passionate about learning Reiki and plan on becoming a Reiki Teacher myself. This way I can pass along this wonderful gift that I have received through (Erika) so that others can discover the same happiness and healing I have. (I have been taken off the transplant list!!!!)"
