Quality • Professionalism • Best Practice
Since 1999, The UK Reiki Federation has worked extensively on promoting Reiki and best practice for practitioners, with UK Reiki Federation representatives having been continuously involved with the various groups which have been working on revised standards for training of professional practitioners, over many years. One of the aims in promoting good practice is to improve the acceptance of Reiki as a viable tool to be used within the NHS, and via its CPD courses the UK Reiki Federation is able to offer guidance to its members.
Following consultation in 2007/2008, a revision of the National Occupational Standards for Complementary and Natural Healthcare was carried out, and in 2009 the finally approved standards were published. Full details of the standards are available through Skills for Health, whose website is www.skillsforhealth.org.uk. Further information, and copy of the standards, is given on the page on National Occupational Standards (NOS), and we also provide more detailed information on teaching requirements (practitioner & teacher members only).
The Education Team of the UK Reiki Federation is made up of individuals who are not only qualified Reiki Teachers, but the majority also hold either formal Teacher Qualifications or Assessor Qualifications, or both.
