As a qualified reiki therapist, you practice Japanese stress relief and relaxation techniques to promote the healing of others. Reiki is a Japanese term made from two words: ‘Rei’ which means "God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which means “life force energy”. Qualified Reiki healers administer the practice by “laying on hands” working with unseen forms of “life force energy” which flows throughout bodies. The practitioner's aim is to instil a sense of balance within the body and promote the process of self-healing. 


Reiki is a popular solution for client’s looking for a natural and spiritual healing process for illnesses, stress management and relaxation. We pride ourselves on offering some of the best insurance policies for reiki practitioners and healers. It is critical you have insurance cover in the event that something goes wrong, as a claim against you could have seriously damaging financial implications. 


Whether you are a student reiki practitioner, work freelance, self-employed or within a salon, reiki insurance could protect you, your employees and your business. Our insurance ensures you can go about your working day without the worries and stresses that can potentially arise. Our insurance for reiki practitioners covers:

  • Accidents and reactions to treatments
  • £6,000,000 Public, Products and Treatment Liability cover
  • £10,000,000 Employers liability cover (Salons Only)
  • Free professional beauty magazine subscription with all salon policies
  • Business interruption, money and glass cover with all salon policies


Expert Insurance for Reiki Practitioners


Reiki practitioners target ‘stagnate’ energy points that are located around the body to improve the flow of energy and promote relaxation, pain relief, support healing and reduce symptoms of illness. For any practitioner, it can be extremely rewarding seeing the development and life-changing effects your work has on a client’s quality of life.


Reiki has been renowned to aid a number of conditions, including, cancer, heart disease, anxiety, depression, fatigue, infertility, chronic pain and Crohn's disease to name a few. It’s no wonder many healers have pursued this profession because they enjoy making others feel better.


However, we recognise there are also potential pitfalls to working as a reiki healer, namely when a claim arises due to a report of negligence or due to an accident. For example, a client could claim you have worsened their pre-existing condition, or you accidentally damaged a personal belonging during a visit to their home or business premises. On the other hand, you might need insurance if your equipment becomes lost or stolen. 


Why do I need reiki insurance?


As a reiki healer, you could work freelance, self-employed or within a salon environment. Regardless of how you operate as an individual, you have direct contact with clients on a daily basis to administer the spiritual healing process. Your responsibilities may include, but not be limited to:

  • Discussing client medical conditions and their previous medical history to form client consultations 
  • Treating clients based on the client’s condition, medical history and long term goals
  • Maintain and update treatment report and plans
  • Ensuring clients are as comfortable as possible before and during the treatment to maximise benefits
  • Marketing and advertising your business


In the event, an accident occurs during treatment, or you break or damage an item belonging to the client, you might be liable to provide compensation for a claim raised against you. Our insurance for reiki healers provides you with peace of mind knowing you’re protected in all circumstances but also gives your clients confidence knowing you have their best interests in mind. 


Our standard insurance covers:

  • Public liability: This type of insurance covers injury to another person whether that be within the business premises or within a client’s home. It also covers damage caused to the client’s property during a visit to their home.
  • Product liability: This insurance covers you in the event that a product sold by yourself causes damage or harm to the client.
  • Treatment liability: This type of insurance ensures you are cover if a client claims you have worsened their injury, made them ill or caused injury as a result of the treatment you provided.

Without a professional insurance policy in place, your business might come under threat in the event of an accident which could be detrimental to your success. We understand practitioners are often discouraged to seek insurance policies out because they’re often perceived as confusing or perhaps even not needed, not to mention some insurance companies can be intimidating and unapproachable. We want to break the stereotype by offering a friendly and approachable service which makes understanding insurance policies coherent and pleasant.
