Why Reiki for Young People?
Teenage years have always been a turbulent time for many young people, but 21st century lifestyle can cause added stresses, for example - cyber-bullying, family break up, constant negative media stories & toxic overload, from chemicals in food & drinks & in the environment.
Energy therapies such as Reiki can provide a dynamic tool for self-healing, empowerment & supporting others. Experiencing Reiki is believed to create a healthier flow of energy through the body.
Learning to "self-Reiki" through being "attuned" by a Reiki teacher also encourages young people to listen to their body & feelings, express themselves creatively & acting in a healthy, responsible way that promotes respect for themselves & others.
Reiki is a non-denominational, non-religious method of self-healing that is suitable for all.
Teen Healers gives young people the chance to experience a short Reiki "taster session" in a safe & nurturing environment.
What Happens During a Reiki Consultation?
Reiki is a safe, non-invasive form of healing which is suitable for all ages & conditions. Prior to receiving Reiki an in-depth consultation, including full medical history is taken. This will normally take between 1 & 2 hours.
For taster sessions a brief assessment of current need is established & a short session of between 5 & 30 minutes is given according to need & time available. Parental & young persons consent is required in those under the age of 18 years.
Reiki is usually conducted with the client in a comfortable seated or lying position, fully clothed, although it may be more comfortable to remove coat, shoes, glasses or jewellery. The eyes are generally closed for relaxation & comfort, but this is not essential.
A trained Reiki therapist will gently place their hands on or over energy centres in the body, with the clients consent. If any individual is uncomfortable with or unable to tolerate touch, the practitioner will work in the aura or at a distance.
Talking does not affect Reiki, so clients may wish to ask questions or report experiences during treatment, or more usually afterwards. Most people report a pleasant feeling of relaxation following Reiki & many notice improvements in specific health issues on follow-up visits.
According to the nature of the presenting complaint, a course of 3-6 treatments will often be recommended to promote lasting improvement & to fully evaluate progress.
