Yes! Natural Healer™ is a board certified, accredited school with the American Association of Drugless Practitioners (AADP) and an accredited institution with the International Natural Healers Association (INHA) and Complementary Therapists Accredited Association (CTAA). Instructor Melissa is also an Accredited Training Provider with the International Association of Therapists (IAOT) and the Massage Association of Australia (MAA).

This means all of Natural Healer’s* graduates, who hold their unique Natural Healer issued certificate, are recoginised by:

  • The American Association of Drugless Practitioners (USA),
  • The International Natural Healers Association^ (USA, Worldwide),
  • The International Association of Therapists (UK, Worldwide),
  • The Complementary Therapists Accredited Association (Worldwide),
  • The Massage Association of Australia (AUS), and
  • The Natural Healer Society (Worldwide).

Because our courses are accredited internationally, they can/will be recognized in countries other than Australia, like the USA and UK.  By holding an accredited certification, it means the qualification meets the criteria and guidelines placed upon them by the accrediting body. Accreditation and accredited certifications are not the ‘trigger’ for the graduate being able to work with the public.

Each country (and each state/territory within each country) will have their own requirements for any graduate to be able to practice with the public, such as registering a business and having liability insurance.  Most of Natural Healer course’s provide suggestions for starting an energy healing business.

^ All graduates holding Natural Healer-issued certifications receive an exclusive discount for their first year of INHA membership.
*The only certificates which are not accredited are the Powerful Self Healing completion certificate, the Natural Healer Society (NHS) membership certificate, and the “Ultimate Natural Healer” Certificate of Recognition.

Right now, the only payment plan we offer is via Paypal’s Pay in 4 feature.

If you have an eligible Paypal account, select the Pay in 4 option when you choose Paypal as your payment method on the final check out page. There is a minimum spend requirement of at least AU$30, with the maximum amount being AU$1,500.

Paypal’s Pay in 4 will allow you to buy now, but pay over time.  This payment option divides the total price of your cart into 4 even (interest-free) payments, over a pre-set, even period of time (eg. $X amount to be made every X weeks). 

For example, if your purchase is $77 then there will be 4 even (interest-free) payments of $19.25 required. Paypal’s Pay in 4 will obtain the initial $19.25 upon completing check-out (via the chosen payment method you selected within your Paypal account).  Then as per their Pay in 4 agreement with you, they’ll obtain the second $19.25 in X weeks from today. Then the third and fourth (final) payment in due course.

You will not have to wait for your payment plan to be completed before you access your course or receive your order.  Delivery of orders done via Paypal’s Pay in 4 are treated the same as pay-in-full orders.

Absolutely not! The price you see is the price for the entire course – including your custom certificate (PDF) upon passing your final exam!

The only additional cost you may incur is if you want to purchase a ‘hard copy’ signed course books in addition to the PDF version that’s supplied in each course.  You don’t need the physical book since a PDF version of it is already included in the course, this is just an option for those who like having a “real” book in their hands.

Yes! Natural Healer is a global institution and accepts student enrollments worldwideWe currently have students and graduates around the globe including Australia, USA, Canada, England, Brazil, Germany, France, plus 190 more!

Yes! The wondrous world of energy healing does not require you to have any particular skills.  The only thing required – for the best possible results – is an open heart and and open mind!

However, do please keep in mind that some courses (such as advanced ones) may require previous education to obtain certification. Please review each course prerequisite for more information.

Natural Healer is an online learning platform for adults. Since we are based in Australia, we classify “adult” as a person at least 18 years of age.

If you are younger than 18, but older than the age required for internet-use consent where you live (for example, 13 in the US or 16 in Ireland), you must have your parent or guardian help you enroll in courses that are appropriate for you. Being able to enroll means you can take and complete any course, however it does not mean you will be certified (see below about being certified).

If you are below the internet-use age of consent, you are not allowed to enroll. If we discover that you have enrolled in any way that violates these rules, we will terminate your enrollment and account.

In order to be certified, you must be of adult age in your state/country. For most countries that will be 18 years old. Again, those who enroll correctly under this age can take any course, but certification does require the graduate to be of adult age.

Yes! Excepting our free Powerful Self Healing course (which has a completion certificate, but not a certificate to practice any modality). All other courses have their own learning requirements, quizzes, as well as a final exam (which must be passed) in order for you to obtain certification. Certifications are managed by our administration team and emailed (PDF) directly to the graduate.

Please refer to each course’s page for the full details. Also remember, each state/country has different legal requirements to practice services with the public, so be sure to check your local governing body’s requirements in order to practice.

Yes! Your certification/s will allow you to obtain liability insurance to start your own practice! Generally speaking, energy healers (including Reiki practitioners) only need to be (1) qualified by certification, (2) have liability insurance, and (3) be operating as a legal business and/or sole trader in their country/state to practice. 

Being a member of any specific ‘association’ or ‘membership’ program usually isn’t required for those who are only energy healers (including Reiki practitioners), but they might be if you’re also offering massage, beauty therapies, or any other number of regulated services. For energy healers/Reiki practitioners only, association/memberships are often more of a benefit in that they offer a professional appearance and possibly access to special insurance offerings.

In saying this, it’s very important you look into what your own state/country’s legal requirements are for setting up a service-based business (eg. Massage, Reiki, etc) when dealing with the public. For example, most states/countries require you to be certified, registered as a business and insured to practice with the public (as mentioned above); but others may need you to meet additional governing body requirements in order to practice. So please do your ‘due diligence’ on what’s required of you in your local state/country.

You can also refer to each course’s page “Quick Course Summary” to see what the relevant “Qualification” will be on that course’s completion certificate. Lastly, further tips on starting a business are provided in each course and upon graduation, as well as links to preferred insurers around the globe.

We love connecting with existing Reiki practitioners and thank each and every one of them for shining their light!  However, we only offer the course packaged as Level 1, 2 and Master. The course also includes the Distance Attunement Ceremony for all three levels (an explanation/clarification about getting another attunement for existing levels is noted by Melissa in the course)

What’s more, we have countless existing practitioners (even Masters!) who say they enjoy the previous levels as a ‘refresher’ when taking the Reiki 1, 2 and Master course.

Technically, a Reiki Master can attune and teach others. However, the Natural Healer Reiki 1 2 + Master course is focused on self-healing and healing others. Teaching others comprises of so many other elements (attunement ceremonies, handling students, administration, creating a course, and so on) that it’s been ‘broken’ out into another course called the Advanced Reiki Master Teacher course . For those who want to teach and certify others in Reiki, you’ll want to consider enrolling in the supplementary Advanced Reiki Master Teacher course as well.

All Natural Healer courses have multiple components to them, which work in conjunction with each other, for a more robust learning experience:

  • All courses will have an included PDF handbook;
    • Note: some courses will have an included PDF workbook (which guides practice sessions), others will have a PDF supplement to the handbook for further learning, but most will not have a workbook at all (refer to each course’s page for inclusions) because the practice sessions will be prompted at specific stages within the Student Platform itself.
  • The handbook (and workbook/supplement, if applicable) are to be used in conjunction with the online Student Platform where the student starts at the very first ‘lecture’ and progresses through to the end;
    • That progression means the student watches and completes all the course’s video lectures (pre-recorded), tutorials, passes each section’s quiz, then at the end will need to pass the final exam. All the above are accessed online, via the Student Platform.
    • The downloadable PDF handbook (and workbook/supplements if applicable, and any extra bonuses and resources) are accessed via the Online Student Platform and helpful for when students are offline and wanting to refer to their material or course inclusions.  *Note: video tutorials are not downloadable, they must be streamed online.
  • The course’s instructor is contactable within the “discussions” feature of the online Student Platform where they can ask questions or discuss topics. 

Distance learning is for those students who want to absorb knowledge and new skills in the comfort of their own home and at their own pace.  So once you decide to take the first step in your new healing journey and purchase a course:

  1. You’ll receive a confirmation email for your purchase.
    – Tip! If you can’t see your confirmation email after a few minutes, be sure to check your SPAM/JUNK, or PROMOTIONS or “ALL MAIL” folders then add our email to your address book or ‘safe’ senders list to avoid issues in the future.
  2. You’ll receive another email confirming your enrollment into the course, which will be available in the Student Platform.
    First time enrolling? You’ll have another email asking you to set your password to create your account in the Student Platform. All future courses you enroll in (using the same email) will automatically be added to your account. 
  3. You will log in to the Student Platform and start at the first lecture and work your way through the course – watching video lectures, downloading supplementary handbooks and material, and taking quizzes as prompted.
  4. You’ll then take your time progressing through the course as it’s completely self paced.
  5. Receive priority email support or responses via the Student Platform for any questions or clarification you need along the way.
    Tip! You are never alone in this journey, we touch base via email from time to time to check-in on you!
  6. Once you’ve completed all the course lectures and requirements, you’ll then be able to submit your final exam for review. 
  7. Once you pass your final exam you’ll receive your certification (PDF) via email!
    – Tip! Don’t worry, if there are any issues with your final exam, we’ll reach out to you via email to discuss further.

All of Natural Healer courses are self-paced, so this means there is no pressure and no deadlines to start or complete any course in any particular time-frame.  This means the time-frames for completion will vary based on which course you’re enrolled in and how much time you have to dedicate to your studies and practice sessions.

You’ll find on each course’s page, a section near the top called “Schedule & Length” which provides the estimated completion time based on previous student progress. The indicative time provided on each course isn’t a timeline that must be met, it’s just provided to help you understand how much time might be required to complete the course.

As a general guide, many of the basic or introductory courses are usually completed in 1 week with part-time study.

The courses which are more involved, such as the Reiki 1 2 and Master course and the advanced courses, can be completed in 2 weeks with part-time study.

For clarity on term “part-time“, for us it means you probably have other duties to attend to during the day, such as work, school, or family. So you might only have an hour or two each night of the week to dedicate to learning and practicing.

We understand that life gets busy, which is why all Natural Healer courses are structured in “bite-sized” pieces, meaning you don’t need a large chunk of time in any one sitting to be able to progress in your course. This is ideal for those who are learning in their spare time.

For those who can dedicate more time to the course they’re taking, it simply means you might be able to progress and complete it more quickly than the typical time-frames.

But again, since the courses are self-paced, you could finish quicker or take longer, it’s up to you!

You can start your course right away – as soon as you get your login details!  If you’ve purchased a course and don’t see your enrollment details within a few minutes, please check your spam/junk/promotions or “all mail” folder for emails from Natural Healer.

All of Natural Healer courses are 100% self-paced, meaning you can start, progress, and complete at your leisure. There is no schedule and no time-limit on any course This allows you full flexibility to learn when you have the time to do so.

Keep in mind though, each course* has a certain number of practice requirements, quizzes, and a final exam which must be completed prior to finishing and requesting certification. Each courses’ minimum requirements will take a different amount of time** to complete. How much time it will take will depend on how much time the student has to commit to their studies and practice sessions.

* Some advanced courses have prerequisites/time requirements, please refer to each course’s page in the “Quick Course Summary” for more info on whether the one you’re interested in has prerequisites or not.

** Please refer to each course’s page in the “Quick Course Summary” to find out the ‘typical’ time-frame that most students complete that particular course in.
