Informed consent is the process by which a fully informed person can participate in choices about his or her health.
This Disclaimer is intended to provide you with information about My Dawning Light’s practice, the nature of decisions regarding your health, reasonable alternatives to the proposed process, the relevant risks, benefits, and uncertainties related to the alternatives, an assessment of your understanding, and your acceptance of the process.
This is an invitation for you to participate in your decisions regarding your health.
Nature of Relationship
We do not practice medicine, and do not diagnose or treat diseases or medical conditions. Our services are not meant to be a substitute for, or replace those of, a licensed physician. We advise you to be under the care of a licensed physician, and encourage open communication between us and your current licensed medical professional. We do not handle medical emergencies of any kind and refer clients with such emergencies to emergency services, or the emergency room of their local hospital.
We will not speak with you unless you’ve completed the new client questionnaire. We will discuss the proposed ideas with you before we initiate any action only after we receive your assurance that you understand the situation, understand the risks associated with the decision at hand and you communicate a decision to proceed, based on your understanding. We will also advise you of any significant risk which would affect the judgment of a reasonable patient.
You always have the right to refuse any proposed ideas entirely or to certain parts of your body.
You agree to advise us regarding your medications, drugs, and aspects of your underlying disease and state of mind that may affect your capacity to make an informed decision. You also agree to advise us if you have ever experienced a fit or fainting, if you have a pacemaker, a bleeding disorder, if you have damaged heart valves, have any other particular risk of infection, or are in your first trimester of pregnancy.
You agree to take full responsibility for taking Reiki Treatments/Attunements provided by My Dawning Light, and you agree that we are not liable for any adverse effects or complications from such healing methods. You agree to cease all treatments upon the onset of any adverse effects.
You agree to immediately notify us of any unanticipated or unpleasant effects that may be associated with a Reiki Treatment/Attunement. You will also notify us if you are or become pregnant, as Reiki may be inappropriate during pregnancy. You do not expect that we will be able to anticipate and explain all possible risks and complications of treatment and you understand that the results are not guaranteed.
You agree that if you have a complaint, you will talk about it with us. If we are unable to resolve it informally, we agree to binding arbitration under the rules of New Zealand Arbitration. Reasonable discovery shall be permitted and the prevailing party shall be entitled to attorney’s fees and costs of the arbitration.
By reading this Disclaimer, or having it read to you, you agree that you have been told about the risks and benefits of Reiki Treatments and Attunements, and have had an opportunity to ask questions. You intend this consent form to cover the entire course of treatment for your present condition and for any future conditions for which you seek treatment.
As with all other material contained on our website and blog, the My Dawning Light Practitioners are not medical professionals, and will not provide you any medical or other professional advice or opinions as a result of a consultation between us.
Even if you provide personal health information to us in the course of a consultation, the consultation shall not involve or constitute the practice of medicine or any other profession, it will not create a physician-patient relationship between us, and it is not intended as a substitute for a physical examination and face-to-face consultation with your personal physician.
All matters regarding your health require medical supervision by healthcare professionals selected by you. You and your personal healthcare providers shall have exclusive authority and control over your health and healthcare, including all diagnosis, treatment and other determinations related thereto, and nothing discussed in a consultation between us, is intended to or shall influence, restrict or interfere with your personal healthcare professionals’ exercise of independent clinical, medical or professional judgment in providing healthcare services to you.
As such, we shall not be liable or responsible for, and you hereby release us from, any loss or damage allegedly arising from any information or suggestions made during any consultation between us.
