Reiki

The healing energy that flows through all of us

During a Reiki session, this is channeled through the hands of the practitioner to the child receiving it, normally in a number of set positions around the body. The child remains fully clothed, and can sit or lie down, as they prefer, with the parent present.


Reiki is well known as a healing practice, and as such is not a ‘therapy’, however receiving Reiki can be a comforting, relaxing and energising experience. It is often felt initially as a warmth, or tingling sensation where the hands are placed. The overall effect however is a bit like refuelling, or plugging back into the mains when energy levels are low. It can also re-balance a system that has got a bit out of kilter and help the child to gain a sense of reconnection.
