California Client Information Form, Acknowledgement, & Consent to Receive Treatment

(In accordance with California Senate Bill SB-577)

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a form of complementary health care practice, which has been found to enhance the body’s ability to heal itself.

What Reiki is not

Your practitioner is not a licensed physician, and Reiki does not require licensing by the state. It is meant to be a complement to “healing arts services licensed by the state”; i.e., it is a complement to traditional Western medicine provided by doctors, nurses, and other licensed medical professionals.

Theory of Treatment

Stress, trauma and illness restrict the natural flow of ki (chi) or “life force energy” through the body. By restoring the flow of life force energy through the body, Reiki rejuvenates the body’s ability to relax and, therefore, supports the body’s ability to heal itself.

Although one session may be adequate, long-term imbalances in the body sometimes require multiple treatments in order to allow the body to reach the level of relaxation necessary to bring the system back into balance. Improvement often requires commitment on the client’s part (e.g., willingness to make lifestyle changes) in order to fully benefit from Reiki treatment(s).

Nature of the Services Provided

During a Reiki session, the client is asked to lie down. He/She remains fully clothed during the treatment session. The majority of the session will involve the practitioner holding her hands about 2-3 inches above the client’s body.

Once the session begins, the practitioner allows the life force energy to flow through her hands, which may be experienced by the client as heat, coolness, vibrating, tingling, a light pressure, a slight pulling sensation, or nothing at all. The Practitioner may also use other hands-off techniques, such as sweeping the body of unneeded energy or using vocal tones to break up energy blocks. The practitioner is simply a conduit or channel of the life force energy. It is believed that the energy is guided by God/Source/Spirit for the physical, mental, emotional, and/or spiritual well-being of the client. Therefore, a specific outcome cannot be guaranteed by the Reiki Practitioner.
