Reiki for children.jpg

When children don’t get the chance to ground and release the energies they’ve picked up naturally, or if their own ways do not suffice, they can develop more severe problems, like sleeping problems, hyperactive behaviour (AD(H)D), autism-like behaviour, low self-esteem, aggressive behaviour, and so on. Because children receive too many stimuli, their energy system can become overloaded. Particularly sensitive children (also called ‘new-age children’) get out of balance. In any situation, energy healing can be a great support to a child’s process and wellbeing. Reiki can be used on children and during pregnancy; with children the session would be shorter than with an adult.

Children are generally more receptive than adults to energy healing, simply because they have much less blockages and psychological barriers, despite the fact that they tend to easily absorb their parents' problems.

Unlike adults, they have kept the connection with Universal Energy. They will accept this healing in joy and with more simplicity than the adult.

And even if they don’t know exactly what is happening to them, they certainly feel the benefits.

How your child might feel after a treatment?

Most people feel refreshed and energised much like someone who has had a good night’s sleep.

If a physical condition has been the priority of the session then they will more often than not feel sensations surrounding the treatment of the physical alignment, such as a decrease in pain.

Other experiences may be that the child will feel emotional, nurtured, secure and happy.

The reasons for these different experiences are in direct correlation to the Reiki treatment. Very often the effects of a treatment can continue for hours or days after an initial session.

Very sensitive to children’s pain, I offer Reiki healing sessions for children from the age of four; to help them find a better emotional and physical balance. A session consists of a brief intake, a light and warm introduction and a 30 minute hands-on healing session. The time may of course vary per child. I also facilitate Reiki after school club classes for children a few times a year. Children can easily use Reiki on themselves once taught what to do.
