Michèle E. Denis, founder of the Westcoast Reiki Centre, is passionate about uncovering the ways in which we each come to engage with our transcendent Self. For Michele, the Path of Reiki and of Yoga have been her route to personal discovery, growth and healing. A Reiki teacher for over 20 years, Michèle created the Westcoast Reiki Centre in 2008 out of a desire to provide ongoing support and learning to those who studied with her. Over the years the Centre has grown into a vibrant community of teachers, practitioners and friends. In 2010 she reconnected to her earlier love of Vedic philosophy and meditation, leading her to complete her 500hr as a Yoga Therapy Instructor. Recognizing the need for many of us to calm our nervous system and still our minds, Michèle weaves together the quiet practices of Reiki with Meditation, Yin and Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra. When not in Vancouver, Michèle can be found at her Gulf island home or “sitting” in the Sanctuary at Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, New York.

The Director of the Westcoast Reiki Centre, Karen McCullough, is a graduate from Langara College’s three year Integrative Energy Healing Program, and holds certification in Usui Reiki, Karuna Reiki, Tibetan Reiki, Yoganidra, Energetic Dialogue, Anatomy and Reflexology.
Karen’s primary desire is to facilitate a path to wellness using energy based treatment therapies that stimulate the body’s own natural resources for healing. Bridging eastern and western healing science, the therapies she uses are designed to complement conventional approaches to health care. She combines energetic therapy with acupressure, movement, and dialogue to tailor a unique session for each of her clients.
Karen’s personal journey to healing began when her father was ill and conventional medicine was unable to provide him with comfort. She was surprised at how effective “simple” techniques like grounding and guided visualization were at providing moments of relief.
“I believe that awareness is the key. If we are able to see our stories, our pain, our perceived limitations, our sorrow…just see them, acknowledge them, allow them space to be, they often disappear. Sometimes we need help in finding this awareness.”

For over twenty years, I have assisted clients, as well as other healers, to facilitate positive shifts in body, mind and soul, balancing vibrational frequencies to reduce disease, discomfort, and dysfunction.
In 1997 I was initiated as an Usui Reiki Master/Teacher. I continue to study alternative medicine, energy & spiritual healing, including Reiki, Crystal Singing Bowls, Sound & Color Therapy, Crystals, Aromatherapy, and other Intuitive & Intention based subtle energy healing techniques.
I enjoy my role as a channel helping to shift the frequency of the planet, one soul at a time.
In my personal journey to find balance & harmony, I have walked the El Camino de Santiago, a centuries old spiritual pilgrimage in Southern Spain, three times, each time experiencing different life-changing miracles & profound personal growth.
May all of our journey's be filled with abundant peace, love, joy, harmony, forgiveness & gratitude!

I am an animal massage and Master Reiki Practitioner, trained in the Usui Reiki tradition. I have also received training animal massage, animal acupressure, TTouch, animal communication, image therapy and vibration healing. My Reiki practice spans both animal and human clients.
I believe that the physical, emotional and spiritual well being of our companion animals is a big part of our responsibilities as guardians. It is up to us to learn from our animal companions and in turn provide them with guidance, when our hectic human world becomes too much for them to handle.
In my human practice I use a blend of Reiki, image therapy and vibration plant healing. I believe that the plant life around us can be wonderful healers in their own right, outside of the traditional ways we utilize plant matter for their healing properties. When approached as fellow energetic beings, they can become our guides and teachers, and offer their powerful wisdom and vibration to help us along our healing path.

I have been practicing Reiki since 2012. My journey started in London, England where I learned Reiki level 1 and 2 in the traditional Usui way.
From day one, I felt such a positive change within my mind. Then my level of energy grew and I began to enjoy being in this world.
In June 2014, I moved to Vancouver, and joined the Westcoast Reiki Centre where I met Master Karen McCullough. I did Reiki level 3 in February 2015 and became a Master/Teacher in April 2016.

Margo is a Usui Reiki Master Teacher and a Karuna Reiki® Practitioner; and a writer with a strong interest in complementary healing. She has been studying complementary medicine modalities for a long time.
She took her first level of Reiki in 2001, and since 2011, she has been studying with Michèle E. Denis, our centre’s founder, for all the Reiki levels up to Master Teacher.
Currently Margo is exploring the intersection of Reiki + Writing, inspired by books such as Writing as a Way of Healing (Louise de Salvo) and the findings of Dr James Pennebaker (Writing to Heal; Expressive Writing: Words That Heal).
Margo believes that chronic stress sets the stage for later disease ….. that we in urban settings are bombarded daily with physical, emotional, and electronic stress; and that the key to managing and surviving all that stress is deep relaxation—the doorway to prevention, healing, and recovery.
