Please contact us if you cannot find an answer to your question.
Reiki (pronounced Ray-KEY) is a healing technique originating in Japan. It emphasizes the use of mindful presence and intentional guidance of universal life energy to facilitate the body, mind , and emotions in returning to a more balanced state.

o Ethics and Informed Consent
o Benefits and limitations
o Techniques and models of care
o Research (Current and on-going)
Reiki is an ever evolving practice. New material, new perspectives, and new techniques are always being developed. Just like the practice of psychotherapy, continuing education helps us keep our clinical skills sharp and relevant to the most current understanding of the topic. Reiki is no different.
In addition, if you are considering (even a little bit) of incorporating Reiki into your clinical practice there are several important factors to consider. The Reiki for Therapists classes spend additional time focusing on current research, techniques, informed consent, documentation, ethics, contra-indications, and the fostering of an enviornment in which safe touch can be used in a mental health setting.
No. Reiki for Therapists is not yet an approved course for continuing education requirements for state or national licensure.
