In my recent post, I wrote about “Reiki during pregnancy” and how it’s totally safe (read the post here). In this post I’ll share how reiki is totally safe for children too.
My reiki teacher, Mr Tadao Yamaguchi, told us that when he was growing up, his late mother, Mrs Chiyoko Yamaguchi, cured all the illnesses of Mr Yamaguchi and his brothers, whether they were scrapes, fever or stomachaches.
Not only did she care for her own children, but whenever she heard that a neighbor was ill, she would rush to the neighbor’s home, offered reiki, and healed the person.
From my own experience, children love the touch of their parents and they are comforted when they are hugged or held, especially when they’re not feeling well.
Children, especially when they are babies or toddlers, often cannot sit still even when they are sick. So when my son was small and became ill, I often waited until he was asleep and gave him reiki on his head, heart or his belly, depending on the illness. This way, I used as little medication as possible and relied on his own immune system.
Alternatively, giving distance healing is just as effective for small children, even if the child in the same room. This way, he can play or walk around, and receive reiki at the same time.
Reiki is effective for many symptoms, including fever, runny nose, cough, stomachache, diarrhea, joint pains, cuts and scrapes.
Reiki works well with mainstream western medicine, and if your child requires medical attention, it is recommended to continue to consult your physician. This is especially true if your child has fractures or broken bones and requires immediate medical attention. After receiving proper medical treatments, reiki can facilitate the healing process.
