Yup, been awhile. I know. Day job and such.
So, I found something out while researching how to build a Reiki business…I can’t. I mean, I can, but it would cost more than 6 months of rent.
Each state has it’s own regulations regarding anything and everything even remotely medical. As well there should be. In the state of Arkansas, I would need the following:
- Minimum completion of Massage Therapy course (even for hands-off Reiki)
- Subsequent exams to become state-licensed
- Multiple applications for licensure, business permits, etc
- Continuing Education seemed appropriate by the state
That’s about $7,000.
Plan moving forward: Work on friends, do distance sessions and take more Reiki courses on Udemy.
Second plan moving forward: Utilize the ordination I got in February and build on that. I’m considered independent and can pursue as I see fit.
