Committed to ensuring the highest standard of Reiki healing and teaching for you

RASA was founded in May 2001 by a handful of Reiki Practitioners and Teachers who sought to establish a South African Reiki Association.

Their vision was an association that would promote and enhance the highest standard of Reiki healing and teaching in South Africa.

From an initial 8 core members in 2001, RASA has grown to over 1,600 registered Practitioners, and 8 registered Teachers. From these small beginnings, RASA continues to grow and maintain its high standards of membership.

All RASA Courses support the SAQA (The South Africa Qualifications Authority) – Qualification # 118846
(all minimum standards required by SAQA are met)
