PIONEERING DEVELOPMENTS RELATING TO REIKI
The UK Reiki Federation has a history of encouraging the pioneering use of Reiki. Many of our members have a great deal of experience in ‘breaking new ground’; diligently pushing back the barriers in raising awareness of the many and varied ways in which Reiki can be used to harmonise and balance all aspects of life thus promoting self-healing.
As an organisation, we constantly work to drive Reiki forward in other ways too – increasing standards, keeping up to date with relevant scientific research, sharing knowledge and providing expertise. Animal Reiki, Research and Training are key areas where we are currently leading progressive developments for and with the Reiki profession.
We have members working or otherwise helping in many specialist areas and we encourage them to share their experiences and expertise though our members magazine. For example, some of our members work in mainstream medicine and education as well as in complementary care.
