Reiki Ethics

Being a Reiki Healer requires more than technical expertise. When a person comes to you for a healing, she/he is in effect establishing a unique bond with you by placing their trust in you, and by consenting to merge energies to bring about change in the mind, body and soul. 

There may be occasions when, during the healing process, something will trigger a thought and you may learn of things from their past (or present) which they would not else wise have spoken of. I cannot stress strongly enough the importance of confidentiality, trust and honor. As a Reiki Healer you must always maintain a high degree of integrity!

The person you are working with has the right to assume certain things about you, as the Healer. It should be safe to assume that you will not use anything said to harm, or judge, the person. It is also safe to assume that you will not lie to him/her; if your forte is "curing backaches," do not claim to be able to "cure cancer." In other words, always behave in a professional and ethical manner.

Reiki practitioners represent their education, certification, professional affiliations and other qualifications honestly. They do not in any way profess to practice medicine or psychotherapy, unless licensed by their province or country to do so.

Reiki practitioners keep accurate client records. They discuss any problem areas that may contraindicate use of Reiki, and refer clients to appropriate medical or psychological professionals when indicated.

Reiki practitioners pay close attention to cleanliness and professional appearance of self and clothing, of linens and equipment, and of the office environment in general. They endeavor to provide a relaxing atmosphere, giving attention to reasonable scheduling and clarity about fees.

Reiki practitioners maintain clear and honest communications with their clients, and keep all client information, whether medical or personal, strictly confidential. They clearly disclose techniques used, appropriately identifying each in the scope of their professional practice.

Reiki practitioners respect the client's physical/emotional state, and do not abuse clients through actions, words or silence, nor take advantage of the therapeutic relationship. They in no way participate in sexual activity with a client. They consider the client's comfort zone for touch and for degree of pressure, and honor the client's requests as much as possible within personal, professional and ethical limits. They acknowledge the inherent worth and individuality of each person and therefore do not unjustly discriminate against clients or colleagues.

Reiki practitioners refrain from abuse of alcohol and drugs. These substances should not be used at all during professional activities.

Reiki practitioners strive for professional excellence through regular assessment of personal and professional strengths and weaknesses, and by continued education and training.

All Reiki practitioners of the same level should be treated as equals without regard to their initiating master or their belief system. All Reiki Master/Teachers should be treated as equals without regard to their initiating Master or their membership (or lack of membership) of any body or association.
