How to set up a Volunteer Reiki Clinic

Updated on March 7, 2010

Throughout my travels I am continually surprised by the number of people that have received Reiki attunements.  They are everywhere, with all kinds of backgrounds, logical and new agey, metaphysical and working as a nurse, men and women, real jobs and permanent certificate obtainers...  And despite all the interest and enthusiasm, one of the major issues is that all these people don't really have an outlet to practice what they've learned.  Over time, their skills diminish and soon this wonderful ability is all but wasted. 

What we need is a way for all those who have been attuned to Reiki to practice and to help those in need.  What we need is a volunteer clinic for Reiki practitioners.  This is what I propose...

Find a space: In your town, seek out some sort of hall, a business with empty space, or anyplace where lectures are given (ask your library, hospital, or Chamber of Commerce as a start).  Explain that you'd like to offer free Reiki sessions for 2-3 hours for one or two nights a week.  If it's a business, remind them that this will be advertised, so their business will not only get free advertising but also a small tax write-off.

Find the Healers: Write a short press release that you're seeking Reiki practitioners to donate their time a few hours each week.  Remind them that they'll get to practice, hone their skills, and maybe develop a referral business.  You may be able to submit a notice to your paper as long as you're not charging anything for your event. 

Explore yahoo groups and other healing or Reiki discussion groups.  Put up fliers in public places and bulletin boards.  Once you have 2-5 people, you are ready to go.

Have a meeting where you establish the ground rules; that you're there to help others, that it's not a social group for chatting, gossiping, or meeting people.  Gather phone numbers, email, and such.

Invite those in need: Once the groundwork has been set, it's just a matter of getting the word out.  Send out notices for the free clinic to local and major newspapers.  Hang up fliers in grocery stores, post offices, libraries, cafes, anywhere there's a bulletin board.  Many publications will be happy to promote for free such an event.

Create an intake form much like massage therapists use.  It will help long-term to learn how best to apply certain techniques for specific ailments.  Some Reiki training takes things to a far more specific level of healing where they actually focus on specific issues.

Promote yourself and the Art: Once the people come, you may want to take it to another level and document the results.  Gather contact information (if the person is willing) and ask if someone can contact them to follow up on their treatment.  Ask questions that will provide information as to the effectiveness of the treatment, areas of improvement, and so on.

Eventually, with enough information gathered (if the follow-up is done in an organized and methodical manner), you'll essentially have enough information to write a very detailed and documented book.  Once you have a published book, the world will open up for you and your Reiki practice.  Bookstores and new age stores will invite you to speak.  You will have more clients than you'll be able to see.

Reap what you sow:  And more importantly, as a result of this effort, not only will you be able to do something you love, many people will be helped, and you will have dramatically impacted the world with regards to the awareness of Life Force Energy healing and all that's related.

So, let's open up a free Reiki clinic in every town.  All it takes is for a few people to get things rolling.

And yes, it really is this easy.  Again, all it takes is a little effort. 

Please share any comments, ideas, and success.
