My Reiki Code of Ethics are important for me as Reiki Practitioner, Master, and Teacher. These are the self-imposed rules I go by:
SAFE AND CARING ENVIRONMENT
As Practitioner and teacher, I strive to provide a safe and caring environment for clients and students.
RESPECT AND DIGNITY
I treat clients and students with respect and dignity.
It is my intention as practitioner and teacher to always set for the highest good of the client and student.
PREPARE CLIENTS AND STUDENTS
I aim to prepare clients and students by explaining to them in advance (either verbally or in written form via this website) what a session entails and what objectives the course will meet.
AWARE THAT BODYMIND IS IN CONTROL
I ensure clients and students are aware that their body-mind is in control of their healing, and that Reiki works with their body as one part of a holistic approach to healthcare.
RESPECT TOUCH OR SPACE BOUNDARIES
As practitioner, I consult with clients and students in advance to ensure any issues around touch or space boundaries are respected.
SIGN CONSENT FORM
My application form – which clients and students are to sign/submit – contains a consent form of understanding that Reiki sessions are not a substitute for medical care.
ALWAYS FULLY CLOTHED
Clients and students will always remain fully clothed during sessions and courses. Sensitive areas of the body will not be touched and if those areas need to be addressed, they will be focused on using a hands-off technique.
Any information shared between the client and practitioner in a Reiki session is kept in confidentiality. All files related to clients and sessions are stored in a secure location.
NEVER INTERFERE WITH MEDICAL TREATMENT
I do not provide diagnostic information nor prescriptive treatments. I do not interfere with the medical treatment clients and students are currently receiving, nor presume to diagnose any conditions.
When it appears necessary, I refer clients to qualified licensed professionals (including but not limited to medical doctors, licensed therapists, etc.).
OPEN AND RESPECTFUL
I am open and respectful towards the beliefs and views others have around Reiki.
I aspire that my communication online regarding Reiki reflects professionalism. I strive for harmony and balance within the global Reiki community.
ENCOURAGE TO EMBRACE ABILITY TO HEAL
As Practitioner and Teacher, I will encourage clients and students to embrace their ability to heal themselves through Reiki.
SET A POSITIVE EXAMPLE
As practitioner, I make an effort to set examples within my community through volunteer work and setting a positive example.
As practitioner, I am a life-long learner of healing with Reiki and beyond.
As a practitioner, I aspire to live by the principles of Reiki in my daily life.
