Reiki teachers and practitioners alike are exposed to risks of lawsuits. Although the practice of performing Reiki on a client is generally safe, accidents can and do happen. Here’s a quick rundown on how your Reiki insurance can respond if you’re faced with a claim.
Reiki insurance may cover you if you’re involved in a malpractice suit
Reiki insurance provides protection for general and professional liability claims that may occur from your daily operations including teaching a student or treating a client. Without proper insurance coverage, a claim could negatively impact your business. A few common claims against Reiki practitioners include bodily injury from your practice or an accident, such as a trip-and-fall.

Check and maintain equipment regularly
Make sure that equipment such as massage tables are set up properly to avoid any accidents.
Keep all walkways clear
Keep entryways properly maintained and free of ice during the winter months. Remove any potential tripping hazards, such as rugs and cords from high-traffic areas.
