Ethical Codes of Conduct and Guidelines for Reiki Healers & Practitioners
Reiki practitioners should follow ethical and good conduct guidelines and practices at all times with good principles and honesty when offering Reiki healing services to clients.
1. Reiki healers should at all times should act in a professional manner, acting in good conscience with integrity, while abiding by high ethical and moral standards in practices of treatment concerning their clients and their well-being. Treating clients with respect and dignity, without discrimination or judgment.
2. Hands-on/off healing; Healers should not give hands-on healing when giving healing to sensitive areas, such as breasts, pelvis/crutch, inner thighs and the posterior. Over these areas, healers should give healing through and via the aura energy field that surrounds the client and all living things.
3. Reiki healers should not ask a client to remove any of their clothes, other than heavy coats and shoes. Also, a Reiki healer might ask a client to remove their reading glasses or any long earrings or jewellery that might get caught up during the healing.
4. Client confidentiality; Reiki healers should not discuss with others what a client’s condition/s are, or what the client has said to the healer in confidence. Reiki healers may confer with another reiki healer for advice on a client’s needs and condition/s if need be.
5. Reiki healers should never promise or tell a client they can cure them. The healer can say that reiki can help many conditions and allow for self-healing to take place where possible.
6. Reiki healers should refrain from giving their client’s a diagnosis of what they think is wrong with them. Reiki healers are not qualified to give a diagnosis nor are they, qualified medical doctors.
7. Reiki healers should not suggest that a client takes any medication or that the client should stop any other treatments or prescribed medications they are currently receiving or taking.
8. If a client’s condition is serious and does not improve, Reiki healers should suggest to their client to seek the advice of a medical doctor.
9. Reiki healers should not take advantage of a client for personal gain. Nor should they exploit or take advantage of a client’s vulnerabilities if they have any. This includes excessive overcharging for the services they offer. Nor should they coerce clients in any way against their wishes or will. They also should not suggest anything that might make the client feel uncomfortable or compromised in any way.
10. Reiki healings should be given separately from other unassociated therapies. Other than Reiki healers might use some Reiki associated tools. These may include, crystals, aura sprays and smudging the aura during a Reiki session, to give healing and cleanse, balance and harmonize the chakras, energy system, and the energy body.
11. Reiki healers should not offer or give clients counselling during a Reiki treatment session. Good advice may be given in some cases, such as concerning whether the client has a healthy diet or if they are taking some exercise in the fresh air.
12. Reiki healers should provide a clean, safe and comfortable environment for their clients to receive their healings.
