What is Reiki?

The International Center for Reiki Training defines Reiki as a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen life force energy flows through us and causes us to be alive. If one's life force energy is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. 

How Does Reiki Work?

A healthy person can withstand a certain amount of stress with little effect on the body. This is because the body has the ability to heal itself, which includes various self-regulating mechanisms that maintain overall balance, known as homeostasis.

Often though when there is sudden intense
stress or stress that is constant over a period of time, the body's ability to regulate itself becomes compromised and health declines. This is because the stress causes the body to lose its ability to rebalance, to restore homeostasis. Left unaddressed the unbalance caused by stress can combine with an individual's genetic predispositions and result in declining health and a overall loss of wellbeing. Common stresses that affect most people are environmental, emotional, physical, financial, social stresses.

At the simplest, most obvious level, it appears that
Reiki treatment helps lessen the impact of stress, releasing tension from the entire system. Not only does the person move toward his or her own unique balance in body, mind and spirit, but the body’s own healing mechanisms often begin functioning more effectively.

Usui system of healing also known as Reiki is a Japanese art. It’s derived from two words “Rei” means universal life force and “Kei” means energy. It’s a system of healing which takes out the problem from roots and can be used for physical, mental and emotional healing. One can do it while lying down, watching television, and talking over phone etc. The procedure is simply lying of hand on the problem area.

There are three levels for Usui Reiki Healing

The first level is all physical healing through touch and laying of hands. A few mediation exercises are also taught for physical and mental cleansing.

In level 2 Reiki symbols are taught. A person is able to send healing through time and space. A lot of new techniques are learned in this level.

In level 3 opens up your intuitive and spiritual knowledge. Meditations on all the 7 Chakra's will be taught which helps to balance the aura. A few Japanese techniques will be taught to enhance the Reiki power within oneself.



What is Reiki doing?

How exactly does Reiki release tension and help the body heal? That question has yet to be answered. Although there is increasing research evidence documenting the effects of Reiki (such as lowered heart rate, blood pressure, and stress hormones; increased immune strength), we have only broad theories as to what causes these effects or the pathways through which the healing occurs.

The multileveled, rapid response to Reiki suggests a complex process that engages many body systems, simultaneously or in quick succession, shifting the body from domination by the "fight or flight" (stress) response to the relaxation response, and supporting the body's own healing mechanisms. Some researchers theorize that Reiki's physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual healing effect is triggered on a sub physical level, perhaps in what science refers to as the biofield.  

What to expect during a Reiki Treatment

The session begins with a discussion between the Reiki practitioner and family to discuss health history and other concerns. The child is asked to think of a goal to have for the session. For example, “I would like allow myself to relax and take in peace and healing.”

During a Reiki session, the practitioner places his or her hands on or above the child’s body. The hands are intended to be a conduit for universal life energy, balancing energy within and around the body. During a session the practitioner may use energy games, sound, crystals, and play to help each child receive the most healing from each session.  We encourage family member in the room for support.During the session, the child may notice energy coming from the healing hands. They may feel this as heat, coolness, tingling, buzzing, bundles of tightness releasing, or lightness in the limbs. No need for alarm, these sensations are completely natural. Receiving Reiki is a very relaxing and soothing experience



Behaviors that can be addressed with the use of holistic care:

Intense emotions — dramatic tantrums , cries as a response to frustration, extremes in emotions extreme highs and lows

Persistence Perseverating over issues, objects or food

High Energy Level — abundant amount of energy, that often causes the child to get into trouble in social setting or make it difficult to interact with peers.

Heightened Sensitivity— may be overly sensitive to sounds, slight discomfort, pictures, and stimuli of all sorts.

Difficulty with Adaptability — may react with greater emotion to changes like attending school, or Change in routine.

Empathic awareness — Some people may be more prone to picking up the emotions others, also be susceptible to and more perceptive of the moods of others.

*Reduce signs of excitability and depression 
*Improve concentration thus improving test scores 
*Enhance relaxation and sleep 
*Calm and promote balance
*Enhance self-awareness and self esteem  
*Clear toxins from the body
*Support and activate the body’s natural capacity to heal itself
*Enhances personal awareness
*Strengthens the immune system
*Alleviates pain
*Support recovery from addictions
*Support both allopathic and homeopathic medicine
*Release blocked and suppressed feelings
*Balance the energy system, meridians, organs and glands

Reiki practitioners have had excellent results working with and training children with Autism, Asperger's, and other developmental syndromes. Reiki has a balancing effect on the physical and emotional body, and can be of benefit by providing soothing moments for parents and kids alike. Reiki helps children get rid of fear, worry and lack of interest. Children who learn Reiki benefit from empowerment as well as its centering effect. 

Children with ADD/ADHD (meeting their emotional needs)
According to statistics released this year by the National Mental Health Association, Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is the most common psychiatric condition, affecting millions of children and estimated to affect 5 to 10 percent of all children nationwide. Children with this diagnosis often demonstrate, among other things: inattentiveness, irritability, impulsivity, hyperactivity, social/emotional issues and defiance. Reiki can be very helpful with these issues. Every child and situation is unique and a cure cannot be promised, but practitioners have been reporting positive results using Reiki with behavior problems for quite a long time.Since Reiki works on all levels of the body - mental and emotional as well as physical - the body will be able to use the energy to find balance in its own way. It will adjust to the moment, an important factor in dealing with these issues. Changes may come gradually, as is the case with Reiki and many other natural healing techniques.
