Changes to ARC Membership Categories

In September 2017, as a follow on from the introduction of legally binding National and State Code of Conduct for Health Care Workers, the Committee of Management agreed;

  •  There is no longer a need for the separate professional branch  of the Association (AARP)

  •  To change the status of  two membership categories 

      1. Member category changed to  Non- Professional Member 

thus ensuring that those who only use Reiki for self use are recognised and inclusion and connection with the Reiki community.

     2. Practitioner category changed to Professional Reiki Treatment Practitioner (Non Teaching) to ensure ARC members in this professional category comply with the legally binding National and State Code of Conduct
