Reiki In European Health Care

February 23, 2014 — 2 Comments

Reiki in European Health Care is becoming more mainstream and regulated.

Pamela Miles recently interviewed Christin Bjergbakke, a Reiki practitioner and chairwoman of the Danish Association of Healers, regarding the place of Reiki in European health care.

The European nations are run in a similar manner to states in the US, where each country can have its own health care licensing regulations.


Spanish Reiki master John Curtin founded Foundacion Sauce. This network of 3000 Reiki Practitioners has initiated 400 volunteers, including 100 medical professionals, who gave more than 8000 Reiki sessions at in Madrid hospitals in 2013.


In some German states, Reiki is offered as an additional service in conjunction with cancer treatment and physiotherapy.

Switzerland and Ireland:

Reiki organizations in Switzerland and Ireland seek to develop professional Reiki practice, and a number of health insurance companies in both countries cover Reiki treatment.


The Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) established a voluntary national register for Reiki practitioners in 2012. Eleven alternative therapy groups were invited to write self-regulatory standards that would assure the public and health care that Reiki professionals meet national requirements.


Since 2007, the Danish Health Council has issued RAB-certificates for members of the Danish Association of Healers (Healer-Ringen). RAB is public acknowledgment that a practitioner has a minimum of 660 lessons of the chosen modality in combination with courses in psychology, physiology, anatomy and clinical practice. One lesson equals 45 minutes supervised training or class time.

Thank you, Pamela Miles, for your tireless work in moving Reiki into a more accepted and prominent position in US and global health care!
