As a Registered Health Professional (Speech-language Pathologist) in the province of Ontario I am required to adhere to high standards of Privacy and Confidentiality. I apply these same standards to my Reiki Practice.
As a Reiki Practitioner and Teacher, I am committed to collecting, using and disclosing personal and health information in a responsible manner. This document describes my policies and procedures for personal and health information in compliance with the Ontario Personal Health Information Protection Act (PHIPA).
Personal and Health Information is information about you and/or your child which may include home and/or work telephone number, address, date of birth, health and education history. This information is collected for the purpose of providing Reiki Treatment and/or Training Services to you and/or your children.

- As a CRA certified Reiki Master/Teacher I am obligated to report any member of the CRA who does not respect the code of ethics in order to protect the public interest.
- Legal proceedings where records may be accessed by the courts.
You have the right to request access to personal information in your (your child’s) file and where appropriate, to have any inaccurate information corrected.
