Do I need a license to practice energy healing professionally?

In many cases not.  Laws vary in each country and state, but it is generally the case that if the energy healing you are practicing does not involve touching the client or prescribing remedies then a license is not required.  If you are going to practice a healing modality that does involve touch, rather than just working in the energy field, you may need to obtain a license from a local government authority.  In some states in the US if you want to do any professional hands-on work you need to be licensed as a massage therapist, physical therapist, nurse or other health professional.  However, this is not the case for many states so please check with your local authority.  Alternatively, becoming an ordained minister allows you to perform the type of energy healing that involves ‘laying on of hands’.  This involves gently touching the body, Reiki-style.  (It’s worth mentioning here that it is not necessary to lay on hands to use Reiki)  Laws vary widely so if you do plan to use touch in your healing practice it is important you check the requirements in your country/state.

Why was my credit card declined?

Ooops, sorry you’re experiencing problems.

Some reasons that can cause your card to be declined are listed below:

  • Most common. International purchase – some credit card companies will block international purchases if you haven’t told them about your plan to use your card for this reason.  Academy of Energy Healing headquarters are in the UK.  Therefore, if you live outside the UK and your card is declined we recommend you contact your bank to prewarn them about the transaction.
  • You’ve reached your credit limit. Check with your credit card provider about the best way to avoid this.
  • Information you entered doesn’t match your credit card records, maybe you’ve moved house or changed your name recently.
  • Your card has expired…check that your credit card is currently in date.
  • There’s a hold on your card – when you use your card for large transactions, such as hiring a rental car or checking into a hotel, a hold for the full amount is put on your card. If a hold exceeds the limit of your card it could get declined for further use until the hold is released.

Does energy healing involve laying on of hands?

Some energy healing modalities involve touch, however there are many energy healing modalities that do not.  You are introduced to both in the course.  It is not necessary to be hands-on to be an effective energy healer.  In fact, the Gold Ray Healing modality founded by the course creator Ahtayaa Leigh is a non-touch energy healing modality.
