1.  Allow the client to take charge of their own healing

          --The client has the right and obligation to choose how they would like to pursue their own healing.  The healer should taylor-fit their skills and wisdom toward the hopes, needs,  and aspirations of his/her client.

                --Help the client to weigh the options, risks, costs, and benefits of a particular preventitive,  diagnostic or treatment approach.

          --Act with the least possible intervention reasonable.

          --Deal with the client directly


2.  Respect the client

          --Do no harm;  Take care not to abuse, neglect, molest, or injure a client.

                --Have an attitude of unconditional positive regard for the client.   Have a kind, sincere, and cheerful presence. 

                --Keep the relationship confidential.

          --Charge a reasonable fee.  Allow the client to choose the services, how often and when in full knowledge of the fee.  Do the work as a service, recognizing that money is never fair exchange for healing or good advice.   Keep the clients' costs at a minimum.


3.  Act with skill and advise with wisdom

          --Use techniques that tradition, science,  experience, and common sense regard as useful and reasonable. 

          --Be humble when confronted with the great forces of nature and realize that we are but a small piece in the great scheme of things. 

          --Seek to learn as much as possible about healing and wellness, and realize that there is always more to know.  Help others to educate themselves. 

          --The healer should keep to his word, and only make promises he/she can keep.

Be careful about predicting the future;  Talk about tendencies and possible series of events. Speak truth only when truth is know; otherwise offer your opinion.


4.  Live a life of example with regard to self-care, discipline, and service.

          --Experience is good reservoir for advice.   Knowing how to heal oneself is reasonable proof of the effectiveness of the healer.  

          --This struggle for wellness allows us to become more familiar with the details of the terrain of disease and illness.           

          --Serve with love and clarity of vision.
