Corona Virus

While we know Reiki helps boost our wellbeing, we should always be responsible if offering hands-on Reiki. In the first instance ALWAYS stay informed about the corona virus updates and follow the guidelines. Reliable information links are available in the main article.

If you are seeing clients follow the guidelines, Hands should be clean, wash your hands regularly with soap and water for 20 seconds, no hands directly on bare skin, and clean linen on treatment tables for every client. Wipe down exposed surfaces between clients using a mild disinfectant as well.  If you or your client are feeling unwell, cancel / postpone the session. Promote distant healing sessions.
