Informed Consent for Energy Healing Services

I understand that the State of Arizona does not offer a license specifically mentioning the practice of Reiki/Energy Medicine, and Reiki/Energy Medicine is not specifically regulated by any Federal or State regulatory agency, nor have uniform educational standards or requirements with respect to Reiki/Energy Medicine been adopted by any such agency.

I understand that a Healing Practitioner does not diagnose or treat illness or disease, or act as a physician, and Reiki/Energy Medicine does not substitute for diagnosis or treatment from a qualified health practitioner for illness, injuries, or other medical conditions.  Any discussion of health conditions is incidental to healing of energetic imbalances and should not be misinterpreted as a form of diagnosis or treatment.  I understand that Reiki/Energy Medicine is used to assess and correct imbalances in the body’s energies and energy fields using techniques that incorporate physical touch.

I understand that no published scientific research has offered significant data concerning the safety, efficacy, or mechanism of Reiki/Energy Medicine.  I understand that there is no guarantee of any particular result, or any specific outcomes from the use of Reiki/Energy Medicine.  While some individuals may experience immediate benefits and some may experience a short term “healing crisis”, the risks and benefits of Reiki/Energy Medicine have not been scientifically established.

I understand that my experiences during a Reiki/ Energy Medicine session are confidential, subject to the usual exceptions that I may instruct my Practitioner to release information to other health care practitioners.

The full fee of $130 for a 60 minute session is payable at the time of the session unless other arrangements have been made in advance. 24 hour cancellation notice by phone, is required to avoid being charged.
