Its not easy for kids today. Not only do they have to deal with the academic pressures of school work and getting good grades, they’re also learning to work with others, make new friends and dealing with the social & peer pressures of growing up. But what can a parent do when the usual ways of coping don’t work. This is where Reiki can help.
Reiki is a gentle, non-invasive way of releasing those hurts, pains and disappointments that underlie our physical and emotional ills. It accomplishes this by gently soothing those areas of blocked, nonmoving energy so that proper flow can be reestablished. As a result, a Reiki session leaves an individual feeling lighter, more confident and secure with themselves and more able to handle whatever comes their way. In addition to stress, tension and anxiety, Reiki can also assist an individual to let go of the physical discomfort and pain related to physical ailments and/or recent afflictions. Although the focus of this article is children, it’s very effective for adults as well.
The uniqueness of this approach is that the fears, stress and tensions your child experiences can be released even if they don’t want to talk about it. In fact, all they really need to do is be open to the process and they usually are as long as they feel safe. Parents are always able to be with their child during a Reiki session. An additional benefit of Reiki is in terms of a child’s sense of self acceptance, which often grows after each session. In fact, each and every session builds upon the prior so that there is a continual sense of growth, which can also be seen in school. As a child becomes calmer and more self assured, their ability to take tests and learn in school grows as well. They also make new friends more easily and tend to get along better with siblings. This is a common occurrence which I have seen this many times in the course of my 16 years in practice. Although I use the term child, Reiki is effective for all ages and each treatment is tailored for the specific need of each individual.
It's not stress, strain and tension alone which Reiki can assist, it’s also effective in treating Anxiety, Asthma, Back Pain, Cancer, Chronic Pain, Grief, Loss, Indigestion, Insomnia, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Knee Pain, Menstrual Cramps, Muscular Aches, Nausea, Panic Attacks, Post Surgical Trauma, Toothaches and many other conditions too numerous too list.
Another benefit of this modality is that anyone regardless of age, can learn to do it for themselves and this true for both parents and children. As with each session, when a child wants to learn Reiki for themselves the class is tailored specifically for their age range and attention span. So that a group of teenagers, will have a more expanded experience than one of adolescents, although each will receive the same result of being able to use the healing energy of Reiki for themselves.
Our kids need whatever tools we can offer to help get along in this world, to prosper and grow emotionally, mentally, physically. Reiki has shown its value over and over again. Its safe, effective and non-invasive. Why not give your child the benefits of a Reiki session today.
