Reiki Healing for Children

With Alison, Liz or Louise

People often believe that Reiki is only for adults; this isn’t true. Reiki can be received by almost every living thing, from toddlers to elders, plants to animals. Receiving Reiki at a young age can help promote a healthy way of living throughout a child’s life. Reiki is a non-intrusive treatment. The scientific explanation of Reiki is that everything is made up of the same energy, from your dishwasher to your thoughts. A Reiki Practitioner can tap into a higher energy, known as the Divine or Universal energy, which is transferred to the child, and is then used wherever it is needed. The body knows what to do with the energy, and requires no input from the Practitioner.

Children are incredibly receptive to the Reiki energies and its benefits. In adults, there are usually many energy blockages that need to be cleared in order for the energy to reach the different areas of the body. However, children often don’t have any energy blockages, so their bodies can use the energy wherever it’s needed. This means the benefits of Reiki are often felt quicker.

Reiki is renowned for its calming and relaxing effect, and can be perfect for children struggling with tantrums and mood swings. The energy provided during the Reiki treatment can be used by the body to help ease the cause of the tantrums, such as an imbalance of hormones or stress. It is also beneficial for children with ADD or ADHD and can help minimise hyperactivity and excitability. Due to its calming effect, it can also be a great way to help children who struggle with sleeping.

For children finding it difficult at school, Reiki can be used to clear the mind and opening it up to new possibilities. Reiki healing will improve the child’s concentration and productivity, helping them with their schoolwork and exams. It can also be beneficial for children choosing their secondary school or GCSE subjects, as Reiki can focus the mind and helps them realise their potential.

Reiki can be perfect for children who are suffering with anxiety and a lack of confidence. Reiki has the ability to rebalance the body and its emotions. It can help pacify any negative thoughts and emotions, such as low self-esteem, anger and fear. Many adults struggle to deal with these emotions and often ignore their problems. Helping children cope with these negative thoughts at a young age can reduce the chances of depression and anxiety in adulthood, and improve their way of life when they are older.

Other benefits of Reiki for children are:

  • Helps reduce pain from cuts and bruises
  • Increases energy and stamina
  • Enhances self-awareness
  • Reduces irrational fears
  • Promotes creativity

These benefits can be felt instantly, or more than one session may be required. After the Reiki treatment, Alison or Liz will advise you on how to improve your child’s wellbeing, moving forward.

£25 per session for children aged 14 and younger / £35 for 30 minutes for 15 – 17 year olds.

We recommend that children’s Reiki sessions last for up to 30 minutes, which includes some discussion with the practitioner.  Sometimes only 10, 15 or 20 minutes is all that is required; every treatment is tailored to your child.
