Reiki helps young people who are struggling to manage their emotions as well as children and adolescents with emotional, learning and behavioural differences including ADD/ADHD, dyslexia or similar language processing difficulties, depression and/or anxiety, mood disorders and emotional dysregulation (in other words, those who struggle to regulate their mood and are prone to unprovoked emotional outbursts). Most people feel refreshed and energized 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.
It is recommend that the child’s parents receive a Reiki attunement from a qualified Reiki Master in order to give Reiki to their children. Reiki may empower the parent and give them a way to help their child.
