Due to the serious situation with the COVID-19 many are self-isolating
with no treatments or training courses are being offered
except Distance Healing
and part Reiki Courses - the course material in preparation for a practical workshop.
The situation involving Reiki Practitioners and Reiki Teachers returning to work is very complex.

TRC membership or for Professional Practitioner/Course verification for both the Reiki Council and CNHC
There are many trials going on bringing Reiki into mainstream medicine!
This does not detract from the conventional Reiki tradition and values that we all hold dear.
Also The Reiki Council are in the final stages of issuing Reiki Professional Practitioner Course Verification procedures!
TRC membership is open to all styles and schools of Reiki provided Practitioners have received face-to-face training and have a recognised lineage.

TRC is an approved organisation for
Voluntary Self Regulation for Reiki
Regulation is not compulsory regulation and many of those practising 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 verification/accreditation/information to hand, and the verification procedure in place, for those Reiki Practitioners who do 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.
