About Her


Michele Ficano is the founder and president of The Universal Reiki Association (URA), an organization of volunteers, who give reiki to patients in medical clinics in the Las Vegas area, including the VA hospital. URA is applying to be a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. 


Michele’s discovery of her passion for helping others began, however, when she herself badly needed help. In 1997, Michele was diagnosed with a serious chronic illness for which conventional medicine had no ready answer, and in her search for better health she discovered the energy medicine of reiki. 


Encouraged by the dramatic improvement from daily self-treatment, she came to devote herself to reiki, becoming a master in Usui-shiki Ryoho under Kim Meoli.


To deepen her understanding of the art, Michele began studying with Frank Arjava Petter, who learned the original form of reiki, called Jikiden Reiki, in Japan. 


Today, Michele does her wellness work in three venues. At Reiki for Stress Relief, she gives reiki therapy to clients, in addition to teaching all levels of reiki and hosting reiki shares. 


At Dharma Charms and Karma Beads, Michele makes and sells jewelry that she infuses with reiki. Her line of tastefully crafted necklaces, bracelets, malas, earrings, and key chains are suitable for gifts, yoga, and wellness in general. 


Finally, realizing that individual resources are limited, Michele enlisted the aid of like-minded friends to found the URA, with the goal of reaching the many cancer and trauma patients who need reiki the most. Interested parties may contact her on Facebook, at 702-499-0368, or at
