How Reiki Therapy Benefits Children
Reiki is an energy healing modality that offers children opportunities to release and reset their nervous systems. What makes Reiki beneficial for children is that their entire being soaks up the energy like a sponge. During their table time, they feel safe and most often report feeling the tingling, or feelings of butterflies fluttering in their stomach, as the healing energy is moving about their bodies. Children tend to become relaxed and nod off.
Through therapy, children are able to be redirected easier when they aren’t having an intense emotional release. Emotional and behavior triggers are tamed and reactions are decreased. Thus, their recovery time to things that caused upheaval, are lessened.
It’s important to note that Reiki is not a religion. Many often think it is and feel it conflicts with their personal belief system. It is Spiritual in nature, pure and simple, but there is no doctrine or dogma attached to this alternative modality.
Kids Healing Workshop
The Kids Healing Workshop is an opportunity for kids with sensory and emotional challenges to learn how to independently calm and manage emotional triggers. Workshops integrate a variety of creative outlets: sound therapy, art, gentle stretching, and breathing.
Kids attending the workshops can experience more focus, clarity, and emotional balance throughout the school day. The benefits also carry over to how they feel at home and when participating in extracurricular activities and social settings.
