Whatever you can do or dream, you can begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.
 ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Whether you are healthy or if you have a serious or chronic condition such as cancer, HIV, heart disease, arthritis, IBS, nervousness or if you require post-operative healing, or have received invasive treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation or surgery, then Reiki self-treatments can give you a great comfort, lessen the side effects of your treatments and speed up your healing process.
Learning this wonderful Reiki can never be soon enough! It is both preventative and healing.

A seasoned Reiki master teacher can guide you along this learning pathway with insight and patience. When disease, heaps of stress, pain or a health crisis strikes and your energy, when you need it most, seems to desert you... Reiki healing can help replenish!

Reflexology is not a regulated healing modality - the federal or provincial governments have no jurisdiction over reflexology by law. The BC Ministry of Health has jurisdiction over many health modalities such as chiropractic, naturopathy, mid-wives, etc, but not modalities that can do no harm. The BC Ministry of Corporate Affairs established this decades ago for reflexology. This is common among many other alternative complementary therapies (such as EFT, Reiki, etc).

However there are several practitioner associations which may have regulations of their own as to who may be allowed to join as a member and what / whose course content may or may not be approved. (Some association names include the words national, provincial or international and  this tends to imply specific regulatory powers which causes erroneous confusions). Please see http://www.reflexologyreiki.com/certification for specific details.

The One-On-One Reflexology courses have the benefits of flexible scheduling and a tonne of individualized attention - 3 consecutive days or 5 or 6 consecutive 1/2 days or 4 hour evenings. Class content and material is formed to include the students interests, needs and goals. 

Basic Level fee: $500 for 20 plus hours of individual instruction. Payment for classes can be by cheque, credit cards (thru the Paypal system), e-interac/e-debit and cash.

7) CERTIFICATION in BC - what does that REALLY mean?

People often want to know if they are taking courses that will lead to certification. This is a very valid question. And certification has various meanings and can be misleading.

Professional Registrations, Official Certifications and Title Designations (examples: Registered Midwife, Registered Massage Therapist, Architect, Medical Doctor, Aromatherapist) are usually represented by a few letters after someones name and these are recognized by any level of government.

While it may be possible to get away with any old title in some countries, official designations are very strict in Canada and BC. In Canadas health world, almost all modalities are under the jurisdiction of the provinces, their legislations and by-laws and that is also the case here in BC. The over-arching concept that the government uses when examining a healing modality for applicable oversight is if a modality can 'do no harm', then it is not mandated to go through ANY government scrutiny.

My examples above of Registered Midwives and Registered Massage Therapists are ones that CAN do harm and therefore are provincially regulated and have credentialing and official certification rules and regulations and associations / institutions set up just for that and this is where proper certification comes in.
Titles designated / allowed and associated with these professions are recognized under the BC Health Act. Specific occcupational title designations, such as with Aromatherapy, must be granted under the Societies Act of B C.

Sometimes a school, institution or individual hands out certifications upon completion of courses and these clarify that someone has successfully completed a program. (This however doesn't stop some groups from trying to impress by saying that anyone not a member of its association is not generally certified or a valid practitioner - and so the meaning of these 'certifications' criticisms need looking into. When I give my students a certificate, it means job well done; proof of attendance; and mastery of the class content.
Reiki, EFT, Dowsing and reflexology can do no harm - and therefore there is no official government involvement or certification by government required and NO certification body / NOR government mandate to have this.

Especially with Reiki and Reflexology there seems to be a muddle afoot. The words Reiki and Reflexology are not protected by any designation or patent or copyright and can be used by anyone - whether incredibly adept, and well-trained or novice or useless.
Any Reiki or Reflexology teacher or school can give out certificates. We hope they are only extended to students who have attained a reasonable proficiency that meets the stipulations of that specific teacher or school.
Any Reiki or Reflexology association - local, provincial or national can accept a member on the honour system, or with a minimal bit of scrutiny as it stands at the moment and can even have very minimal expectations and requirements.
On the other hand, a Reiki or Reflexology organization can set stringent standards and set exams. Yet others are mainly a place for people to sign up for being listed / marketing - it's all a private (non-governnmental) dynamic.
