IARP Code of Ethics

Reiki Healing Badge

As a registered member of the International Association of Reiki Professionals (IARP) I adhere to their stated code of Ethics, as noted here:

1. Abide by a vow of confidentiality. Any information that is discussed within the context of a Reiki session is confidential between the client and the practitioner unless required by law to disclose.

2. Provide a safe and comfortable area for sessions or classes and provide an empowering and supportive environment for clients and students.

3. Always treat clients and students with the utmost respect and honor.

4. Have a pure and clear intention to offer your services for the highest healing good of the client and highest potential of the student.

5. Provide a brief oral or written description of what happens during a session and what a client can expect before their initial session. Provide a clear written description of subjects to be taught during each level of Reiki prior to class and list what the student will be able to do after taking the class.

6. Be respectful of all others’ Reiki views and paths.

7. Educate clients and students on the value of Reiki and explain that sessions do not guarantee a cure nor are they a substitute for qualified medical or professional care. Reiki is one part of an integrative healing or wellness program.

8. Suggest a consultation or referral to qualified licensed professionals (medical doctor, licensed therapist, etc) when appropriate.

9. Never diagnose or prescribe. Never suggest that the client change prescribed treatment or interfere with the treatment of a licensed health care provider.

10. Be sensitive to the boundary needs of individual clients and students as well as your own boundaries.

11. Never ask clients to disrobe (unless in the context of a licensed massage therapy session at the client’s option). Do not touch the genital area or breasts , practice hands-off Reiki to these areas if treatment is needed.

12. Be working to create harmony and friendly cooperation between Reiki practitioners in your community and represent the IARP in a most professional manner.

13. Act as a beacon in your community by doing the best job possible.

14. Be a resource and work to empower your students and to encourage and assist them in the development of their own work with Reiki.

15. Be actively working on your own healing so as to embody and fully express the essence of Reiki in everything that you do.
