Alternative Therapies Legislation in Colorado- Effective June 5, 2013 – Includes Reiki

There is legislation in Colorado which includes alternative therapies such as Reiki and it’s a good thing!
Here is the summary that Sandy Priester from LifeSpark wrote:
Right to practice:  Colorado has a “right to practice” law that gives natural health practitioners a legal right to provide services in Colorado. This law benefits individuals who practice Reiki, Healing Touch, and other natural health practices, and requires that the practitioner provide written disclosure of their training and experience among other things.  The law was approved by the legislature last month and has been signed by the governor. Individuals already licensed or registered with the State of Colorado are not affected (RNs, acupuncturists, massage therapists, etc.). 
Example of a disclosure form…..a copy of your disclosure form signed by your client must be provided at the time of the first Reiki Session.  To learn more about this legislation view State of Colorado documentation.
