Working with Reiki
by Sarah Cooper
A British Reiki teacher who takes you through the areas that a lot of Reiki courses do not cover e.g. setting up a Reiki practice, dealing with clients, Data Protection etc.
A must-read book if you are planning on setting up as a Reiki practitioner or even if you are only going to treat friends & family.
Nina McIntosh's Educated Heart
by Laura Allen
The original author, Nina McIntosh, has passed away but her friend & colleague Laura Allen continues her work. This book is by a US author who is a massage therapist, but there is valuable information in it for anyone working in the complementary therapies industry.

Australian Christopher Lloyd Clarke's website. He has a wealth of music on this site, however it is more expensive as a very comprehensive licence is included. Also offers a discount scheme.
One of the cheaper options, with a wide range of music. Available as CDs, MP3 downloads, web player and an App for streaming. Personally I'm not so keen on the music on this site but it's a great place to start.
John Levine's website where he has a special offer for therapists. You purchase a licence annually and every time you renew you can have a free CD.
