Once you have completed your Reiki training and you are now either a Certified Reiki Practitioner or a Certified Reiki Master Teacher; you will need to switch your focus towards setting up your own Reiki Practice and/or Reiki Training School if you are planning on practicing and teaching Reiki professionally.
Joining a Reiki Association or a Reiki Federation is a good way to add authority and credibility to your own new Reiki business venture and can be a great way to meet and network with other Reiki Practitioners and to acquire the necessary small business skills and training that you will need to establish, develop and build a thriving successful Reiki Practice and/or Reiki Training School.
