School Selection Criteria

Programs in energy healing vary considerably in their focus, so students should take the following into consideration when choosing a school:

  • Students should consider whether they want to generalize in multiple areas or specialize in a particular area, such as Reiki healing, Chi healing or Qigong.
  • Complementary and alternative medicine is a broad field, so students need to look for programs that focus simply on energy healing.
  • Students should consider programs located near the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, hospitals or clinics since these can offer internship, research and other training opportunities.

Energy therapy may be offered as a certificate program or as an integrated part of a degree in alternative medicine. Degrees in alternative medicine range from associate's all the way to doctoral level.
