A word about the Traditional Reiki fees: (the following is an excerpt from Rev. Carey's article: Reiki Controversies in our Reiki section.)
One of the biggest controversies about traditional Reiki is the fee structure for training and certification. Compared to certification classes in other professions, these fees are pretty reasonable. Ask any certified IT Security Analyst how much they paid for their certification. Trust me $500 is cheap in comparison.

The level that gets the greatest controversy is the Master's fee. At $10k it's a pretty hefty sum. But consider the fee charged for similar certifications. This is a certification for a Master, who will teach others, and who will be teaching others to teach. So compare it to similar professionals. My best example is a Minister who will teach, guide and counsel others. Who will teach others to be Ministers. Take a look at the fee structure for Baylor University Seminary degrees. At the time of this writing, the 2012/2013 tuition is $10,006.00 minimum. Add to that additional fees for auditing a course, changing a degree program, or optional fees for meals and dorms and you can reach way over $10k for a similar academic standing.

You get what you pay for, that's true. But you also receive a valued and prestigious degree for a life long profession. If you look at the Master's program in this context, the fee for the highest level of training is commiserate with other institutions for similar practices. Now if you say a Reiki Master isn't going to perform weddings or counseling services. I say no, they provide healing sessions and they most certainly do provide counseling.
