A recent news report explains that New York teenagers are over scheduled and overstimulated, leading parents to try out reiki as a possible solution to their offspring’s stress.
Yes, its what we as parents have all known for some time. Kids, especially teenagers, struggle to cope with the overwhelming demands of life.
I have experienced this with my two boys. My youngest is super sensitive to noise, energy and emotions, resulting in phases of wanting to just hide away in a safe place when he becomes over whelmed and anxious. My eldest, whilst not (yet) bothered with social media, likes to socialise via his xbox gaming, resulting in him being underwhelmed with the everyday wonders of life.
With two dogs, I find that a traipse through the woods helps to ground both boys and bring them back into balance. At bed times they both enjoy using lavender & wheat bags for calming and comfort and my littlest has an aromatherapy diffuser which he enjoys using. Crystals feature heavily in their rooms, they love collecting and reading up about their qualities.
I regularly give them reiki healing and other complementary therapies such as face and indian head massages. I find that overall touch therapy works wonders for them, once I can get them on the couch and settled!
I have also provided reiki healing to a number of other children, primarily to help them cope with a variety of fears and emotional issues, the soothing and loving energy of reiki energy really does help them to chill out and find some peace.
