The JRUKA Professional Practitioner Programme

To gain the Reiki Council Verified Practitioner Award & meet the requirements to be a registrant of the CNHC accredited professional register

Introduction and Background

Over recent years the value of natural, or holistic therapies have been increasingly recognised by the public and have become more popular. However, there are a variety of standards and practices within the field. This has not helped the acceptance of alternative therapies by conventional healthcare. In light of this, the government set up bodies to regulate professional standards in the UK, the main one being the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). This register is overseen by the ‘Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care’, an independent body, answering to the UK Parliament. Its sole focus is on protecting the public. The National Occupational Standards for professional practice were drawn up for each therapy. Verification courses were then created to ensure those professional best practice and regulatory topics were covered and voluntary professional practitioner accredited registers were established.

One of the objectives of the Jikiden Reiki UK Association (JRUKA), when it was founded, was to create this supplementaryvocational training to meet the verification standards in a way that is congruent with those taught by the Jikiden Reiki Institute. This enables Jikiden Reiki students in the UK to achieve Verification and become registrants on the CNHC accredited register, in a smoother way than was previously available. We are happy to announce that we have now created the Jikiden Reiki UK Association ‘Professional Practitioner Programme’. This course has been verified by the Reiki Council and CNHC.

Programme Overview

This is a self-paced programme which is commonly conducted over a period of months. There is no cut-off time in place.

  • After applying through the JRUKA you will have access to all the resources and supporting materials, you then commence a period of self-study, supported by the programme handbook, with sections on topics such as being a professional Reiki practitioner, practice management and key regulatory documents you need to be aware of. During this time you are building a portfolio of evidence of Reiki treatments and experience.
  • This is then followed by a supported study phase, which beings with attending a 1- day training workshop that is delivered by an approved teacher/assessor, who will then support you through this programme.
  • As you continue to build your experience, you will have a total of 4 Reiki treatments, where an approved ‘internal’ teacher/assessor, will observe you conducting a Reiki treatment (commonly conducted over a period of months).
  • You then complete the assessment stage of this process with the Reiki Council written assessment and have a final treatment observation, conducted by an approved ‘external’ assessor. This will all be assessed by an external Verifying Organisation, approved by the Reiki Council, who will award you the Reiki Council Verified Practitioner Award. The JRUKA would then award you our Verified Practitioner status.
  • Having successfully completed this programme, you will be eligible to apply (optional) to the CNHC accredited register to become a registrant (note: CNHC registration has additional ongoing costs).
