Benefits of Reiki for Children

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.

Other Benefits Include:

  • Less likely to show signs of excitability and depression
  • Improves concentration
  • Enhances relaxation and sleep
  • Calms and promotes balance
  • Enhances self awareness and self esteem
Reiki treatments are safe and non-invasive.  Children today are dealing with anxieties, fears, peer pressures and educational pressures.  Childhood ailments such as ear infections, respiratory infections, asthma, G.I. upset and 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.

A practitioner can simply be in the same room with a child, offering the energy gently, without touching or even being near the child.  Some practitioners just spend time with the child, playing or coloring; letting the child guide the session.  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.

Reiki can help children in many ways

Calming 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.

Concentration: 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.

Reiki For Teenagers

For Teenagers, Reiki can help enormously, providing relief for so many of the stresses and strains that they go through. Reiki will ease the pressure whether it’s:

  • Feeling shy, nervous or anxious.
  • Difficulty in being not understood, or not able to communicate properly.
  • Growth pains and hormones.
  • Emotions such as feeling angry, sad or lonely.
  • The pressure of sheer amounts of work.
  • Bullying or people being unkind.
  • Low self esteem and confidence
  • Relationship issues.
 
As children’s bodies are much smaller, the treatments can be shorter.
