I take my Reiki and ReikiMassage work very seriously; there is too much at stake. My practice relies on trust, patience, enthusiasm, and mindfulness. Once you become my client, the following become private and sacred: your Intake Form, communications both spoken and written, words shared via phone or emails or texts or notes, and personal details that emerge during the healing sessions. I create detailed session notes to help me chart all clients' progress; and, like proper medical offices do, I keep those files out of public view. Any legal situation requiring the release of confidential personal information would only go forward after obtaining written permission from the client in question. In the decade-plus of my practice, this scenario has yet to happen, for which I am grateful.
I use provided contact information to book clients' appointments, send reminders and receipts or invoices, and as part of my income record-keeping. Marketing and promo emails or art-card greetings will go out to those who opt-in, and anyone is free to opt out.
I do not sell or share my clients' confidential information with data-mining companies online or offline. However, as an online participant, take it as a given that your use of any kind of computer, or any device that accesses the Internet via apps, websites, social media platforms, email, etc., is to join the battlefield of determined hackers and opportunistic cons. This includes my website's current web host Wix.com -- I cannot limit or control data that the company gathers about me or visitors to these pages.
As a client, you are always welcome to use cash for Reconnections ReikiMassage services. Since I offer the option of using PayPal's and Apple Pay's services in order to accept credit card payments, I am bound by the terms of their current Users' Agreements:
As I understand it, their terms and conditions basically include all users being scoped out and identified by the parent companies and their third-party partners. Although you may receive auto-notices after making any payments online or by apps, I still create my own detailed receipts/invoices to send directly to clients and to add to clients' case histories.
My policies regarding refunds, cancellations, and other terms & conditions are here.
Prior to in-person sessions, I ask about your background and current life issues in order to ascertain your general health, especially when it would seem helpful to incorporate massage or other direct-touch modalities. Such treatments commence with your permission. I practice safe hygiene and professional ethical boundaries for all aspects of my ReikiMassage work. I’m legally unable to diagnose, prescribe for, or assume sole treatment of medical conditions and psychiatric issues. But for people who are seeking new avenues to explore, or who are already under professional care, and/or feel like they are at a crossroad in life, I will do my best to help.
I respect my ReikiMassage clients’ boundaries with regard to privacy, exposure, emotional expression, beliefs, and reasonable expectations of professional behavior. However, working as I do with multiple levels of awareness, I may glimpse what my teachers call sentient attachments, constructions, and memory markers (vibrational imprints of a soul's raw emotions and thoughts)-- sometimes bound to a person's identity, sometimes drifting in/from other realms of time and space. Other terms you may be familiar with: soul contracts, karma, past lives, inner child, soul fragments, demons, angels, spirit guides, entities, shadows, ghosts. No matter names or purposes, such events and perceptions can be beautiful, and sometimes overwhelming... for myself, for the client, for us both. The dynamic of the session may shift as a result, let alone break down entirely, when these mind-bending powers come forth.
Such is the risk and adventure of using my gifts. My intent is to be of service with intelligence, compassion, and integrity. For those who can honestly dialog with me and with themselves, sharing any/all feedback and concerns, I am honored to share your journey.
