There are many Reiki practitioners in New Zealand.
A professional practitioner is generally someone who has completed at least a second level Reiki class.
Ideally a professional practitioner has trained in workplace first aid and keep it current.
A practitioner should abide by all relevant New Zealand laws as well as Code of Ethics and Rules of Practice which they sign as part of the membership contract, if they are members of Reiki NZ Inc. One of the most important responsibilities as practitioner is confidentiality, which is clearly stated in the Code of Ethics.
As a client you will also seek for a compassionate, caring practitioner who works strictly within their qualification. Their clinic room should be comfortable, clean and safe, and all their certificates including the membership certificate as well as Code of Ethics be displayed.
They will be able to clearly explain what Reiki is, what can be expected during and after treatments, and keep treatment records. A client will feel safe, cared for, and respected of privacy and personal space during their consultation.
Fee structure should be clear and you will get full information beforehand.
