Everything you need to know about Reiki in the UK - practitioners, public, organisations - The Reiki Council
 

The Reiki Council is the lead advisory body for Reiki Practitioners in the UK. Through its member associations it represents the views of people giving Reiki to the public across the four countries of the UK The Reiki Council is non profit-making and sets standards and guidelines and provides information and advice.

Insurance for Reiki Practitioners

Insurance companies offering Reiki insurance are asked to check that all Reiki practitioners applying to them have been attuned/initiated in person and received face-to-face training. Those who have only received training over the internet etc do not meet the requirements for UK practice and are not appropriately prepared to give Reiki to the public. Insurance companies are asked to ensure attunements/initiations have been given also, rather than 'reiju' as 'reiju' empowerments do not connect practitioners with Reiki.

Finding a Reiki Practitioner/Reiki Teacher

We recommend that all members of the public ensure that when choosing a Reiki practitioner or teacher that they check that are a member of a reputable organisation, preferably one that belongs to the Reiki Council (see our list of member associations). A reputable organisation will not permit someone to join until they have met specific entry requirements. Directories often permit individuals to sign up without any checking of their background or qualifications or suitability. Membership of a reputable organisation often demonstrates the practitioner's commitment to professional standards

 

Cochrane Review of touch therapies 2012

"Although the lack of sufficient data means that the results are inconclusive, the evidence that does exist supports the use of touch therapies in pain relief. Studies involving more experienced practitioners tend to yield greater effects in pain reduction. It is also apparent that studies with greater effects are carried out by highly experienced Reiki practitioners"  See more at: http://summaries.cochrane.org/CD006535/touch-therapies-healing-touch-therapeutic-touch-and-reiki-for-the-treatment-of-pain-relief-for-adults#sthash.er6QLH0d.dpuf

Grandparenting consultation - results and decisions

Many thanks to all those who responded to the grandparenting consultation, both associations and individuals. There were 26 completed formal replies together with a number of separate emails and telephone calls.

While, when feeding in the association responses, there was a clear mandate for the suggested changes, there was also a significant dissension across the board with the idea of grandparenting. When asked to reflect, associations had the sense that grandparenting had an 'elitist' feel that was not in keeping with the democratic ethos of Reiki. When considered with the considerable difficulty of ensuring a fair process, the Reiki Council as a whole voted to not have grandparenting for Reiki. Everyone who wishes to demonstrate the professionalism of their practice will therefore go through exactly the same process. This can be arranged either via associations or via the Reiki Council directly and a Certificate of Professional Reiki Practice can be issued. The Certificate will enable practitioners to register with a voluntary regulator.
