Children today are dealing with anxieties, fears, peer pressures and educational pressures.
Childhood ailments such as ear infections, respiratory infections, asthma, type 2 (adult onset) diabetes are on the rise.
Reiki has been helpful in the treatment of ADD/ADHD, inattentiveness, irritability, emotional issues, hyperactivity and defiance.
Since Reiki works on all levels of the body-physical, mental/emotional and spiritual, the body will be able to use the energy to find balance in its own way.
It will adjust to the moment and the needs of the individual.
Because Reiki is balancing, it can be of benefit regardless of the type of “disorder” and can provide soothing moments for parents and kids alike.
As the child becomes more comfortable and as the energy begins to work, changes can be made how the child receives Reiki.
Changes may come gradually, as is the case with Reiki and many other natural healing techniques.
Parents are encouraged to learn Reiki so their child can receive daily treatments.
Children who learn Reiki benefit from empowerment as well as its calming and restorative effects.
The calming practice of Reiki can benefit children by promoting relaxation and confidence.
Learning about and utilizing Reiki at a young age promotes a healthy way of living throughout their lives, helping children make better choices and create balance
Reiki can benefit babies, toddlers and children right up to their teenage years.
Babies and toddlers love having Reiki and soak it up like sponge as they have no emotional blockages which can slow the flow of Reiki energies.
It can help babies with colic, reflux, teething and help them to sleep better.
Reiki can help hyperactive children or children diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, learning disabilities and cancer by rebalancing the energy field.
In doing so Reiki can help with reducing a child’s:
- temper tantrums,
- irrational fears,
- sleep problems,
- injuries, as well as the more challenging problems that children with special needs face.
As children’s bodies are much smaller, the treatments will also be shorter, around 20-30 mins or less.
However, best results from my experience can be achieved if mother and child learn REIKI and do the first attunement together.
This also results in a much higher bonding of mother and child.
I have also seen good results training children with autism, Asperger’s, and other developmental syndromes.
The causes of autism are unknown, and much controversy surrounds it.
Because Reiki is balancing, it can be of benefit regardless of the cause, and can provide soothing moments for parents and kids alike.
Children who learn Reiki benefit from empowerment as well as its centering effect.
Calming & balancing your child:
Most healthy children have an enormous amount of energy flowing through their bodies which can make it sometimes difficult to rest, especially when it comes to sleeping.
Reiki will help to calm any excess mental activity and relieve stress, as well as, balance their emotions.
Reiki can be beneficial before exams when some children can feel stressed and worried.
Reiki can help calm them down and relax both their body and mind for a general balanced well-being.
