Reiki 4 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.

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.
