Reiki Teaching and Healing          Welcome to The Reiki Connection (TRC)        The Reiki Connection The Gentle Touch

We are a Reiki group that has evolved from being students of Reiki Master/Teacher Jeanne Long, to a founder member organization of the Reiki Council.  

      A message from Jeanne........

‘After coming to Reiki in 1999 I started The Reiki Connection in March 2004. My goal was to have a small, local (to Bristol) and supportive Reiki organization, initially for all my Reiki Students.

My first challenge was to secure a block Reiki PL insurance through HL Balen for members; which happened 2 months later, May 2004. There was, and still is, no charge for my Reiki students to register with TRC. This registration is also extended to first line students of my trained Reiki Master/Teachers.  Registration shows the student has received face-to-face training and has a recognized Reiki lineage.

As TRC has grown in stature and numbers, it is now not exclusive to TRC Reiki Connection trained practitioners, and applications for membership are happily accepted. I still have direct contact with all members and TRC maintains the ‘family’ feel.

Again I think it important to mention that TRC is open to all Reiki Attuned persons. The criteria for full membership are face-to-face attunements with a Reiki Master who has a valid/recognized lineage.’ 

So, where are we now in 2016?

TRC is a founder member of the Reiki Council*.  TRC member Trisha Underwood, or one of our Reiki GEM's, accompanies me to the regular RC meetings in London to ensure that all our members are kept up-to-date in all Reiki aspects, in this fast changing world of ours.

*The Reiki Council (previously the Reiki Regulatory Working Group) - the lead advisory body for Reiki Practitioners in the UK - was initially set up as a Voluntary Self Regulation Organization for those Reiki Practitioners who wish to practice Reiki in a professional setting.

TRC is an approved CNHC verifying organization for both Reiki Professional Practitioner and for verifying / accrediting Reiki Courses.  The agreed Reiki Council procedure is used for verification purposes.

We have The Reiki Connection members throughout the UK plus France and South Africa.

  • Our main office, and meeting place is in South Gloucestershire.
  • Cher (TRC France) practices and teaches Reiki just outside Oriolles.
  • We have an active working committee in the form of our GEM's.

TRC is a verifying organization able to offer Reiki Practitioners Reiki Council approved verification/accreditation for the CHNC Register & GRCCT Register. TRC is also able to offer Reiki course verification/accrediatation in line with the Reiki Council and CNHC Register.  

Voluntary Self Regulation for Reiki

Regulation is not compulsory regulation and many of those practicing Reiki do not want to go down that route.  This is fine - however we believe that it is the responsibility of Reiki Organisations to have all the information to hand, and the verification procedure in place, for those Reiki Practitioners who do want to want to practice Reiki in a professional setting.                                                                                                                                                                          

It is also our responsibility to have the structure in place for Reiki Practitioners to be able to be registered with CNHC or GRCCT if they so wish, plus gain verification/accreditation for Reiki courses.
