Reiki for children
Reiki for children is ideal to help promote relaxation and confidence. Children today can often be dealing with anxieties, fears, social issues and educational pressures. Benefits can include:
- Improves concentration
- Enhances relaxation and sleep
- Calms and promotes balance
- Enhances self-awareness and self-esteem
Reiki treatments are safe and non-invasive, so are an ideal gentle treatment for a child.
Please note that an adult must be present for the treatment and that a shorter treatment is usually preferable. It can often be nice for a parent and child to share an appointment and have a mini treatment each. As a wise man once said to me, ‘sometimes the best way to treat a child is through the mother’. I’m all for supporting parents with their self-care, and have certainly found life easier with my family when I remember to look after myself.
The best explanations often come from children, so this is what some of the children I have treated have said:
I felt a bit nervous but I soon relaxed when Clare started the reiki. My hands and feet went all tingly. When it finished I felt really chilled out. My Mum had a treatment after me and then the whole family ended up having it!
I feel like I’m in a cloud after Reiki, its so relaxing
During my young son’s session with Clare, he felt quite relaxed and giggly which was lovely – however interestingly, over the next couple of days he opened up about a couple of deep worries he’d been harbouring and we’ve been able to deal those as a result. Thank you Clare!
I don’t feel so stressy after a Reiki. I think it helps me with my Kung Fu because I feel calmer
