I understand that Reiki is a simple, gentle energy technique that is used for relaxation and healing of the mind, body and spirit.
I understand that Reiki practitioners do not diagnose conditions, nor do they prescribe or perform medical treatment, prescribe substances, nor interfere with the treatment of a licensed medical professional. I understand that Reiki does not take the place of medical care. It is recommended that I see a licensed health care professional for any physical or psychological care I may need.
I understand that the body has the ability to heal itself and to do so, complete relaxation is often beneﬁcial. I understand that long term imbalances in the body sometimes require multiple sessions in order to facilitate the level of relaxation needed by the body to heal itself.
I understand that my session records will be kept in a locked environment with only the practitioner having access.
I understand that I may see and receive copies of my session records at any time. (Please allow 3-5 business days to process a records request.)
I understand that no client information with be shared with any third party without my written consent.*
