Ethics of Reiki
Before we get started on your journey, we feel it is important to first discuss the ethics of Reiki. All students must agree to abide by these ethics as Reiki practitioners and Reiki Master/Teacher. As a Reiki Practitioner / Reiki Master Practitioner and Teacher (RMT) you agree to:
Sickness and Health Laws
During treatment, remember that we do not give lifestyle advice or diagnosis unless we have additional therapeutic training! Instead, we respect others' choices in life, without judging or blaming someone (not even ourselves). Treat each customer with love, respect and consideration. Observe confidentiality and remember that the customer does not have confidentiality to you. Invite the client to seek medical advice if this is in obvious need of it. Never invite the customer to cancel the on-going medical care and medication.
Reiki treatments go under quackery law. It announces that we must not treat diseases under the Communicable Diseases Act is notifiable diseases. Nor must we treat cancer and other malignant tumours’, diabetes, epilepsy or other pathological conditions associated with pregnancy or childbirth
Part of Act

Legal Aspects of Reiki
In this section it is not my intent to go into the legal aspects surrounding Reiki. The reason for this is simple. Laws vary from state to state, from country to country. It is up to you as a Reiki practitioner to check on the requirements needed to practice within your state or country. What this section is for is to give you a few guidelines that were given to me as I went through my training.
Soon you will be a Reiki practitioner and not long after that a Reiki Master. It is important that you are made aware of few legal aspects when working with other individuals, whether it is a student or a client. First let’s look at the things you CAN not legally say.
You Can Not:
· Heal (Ministers can Heal)
All of the above can only be done by a licensed medical doctor. You may very well get in trouble for practicing medicine without a license if you use any of these words. Protect yourself and your clients/students.
You can however use the words:
· Treatment or Remission
There is another reason why we cannot use the above aforementioned words, and that reason is simple, WE do not do the healing. Reiki (Universal Life Force) does the healing. We are simply a channel, the conduit through which it flows.
