Ever since learning Reiki, Annemiek Van de Kamp has longed to see Reiki treatment acknowledged in health care in Australia. In a distinctive way, she took a step in the direction of helping to manifest this vision, by enrolling in 2013 for Reiki Australia’s newly nationally accredited qualification in Reiki Treatment Practice. Annemiek, a Reiki master and practitioner with 20 years’ experience giving Reiki treatments, became the first student to graduate with a Certificate IV in Reiki Treatment Practice.

After beginning formal training in Reiki treatment practice, Annemiek, a Reiki Australia member, was increasingly called upon by nursing staff to provide Reiki at the nursing home where she works as a chef.

“It opens doors”, she said. “Now it’s professional, like massage, reflexology, and other complementary therapies”.

While 10346NAT Certificate IV in Reiki Treatment Practice is no longer available, Reiki Australia is introducing other initiatives to assist the ongoing development of practitioners who aspire to provide a professional Reiki treatment service.  Read more.

Keep your eyes on the Reiki Australia website for new educational opportunities. If you’re already providing Reiki treatments to the public, or you have an existing a health or community service qualification, be sure to ask about recognition of your prior learning (RPL).
