Reiki is a subtle and gentle form of HEALING and BALANCING. Reiki is restorative. It is relaxing and soothing. Reiki is non-invasive and works well with all healing modalities, both alternative and allopathic.
There is no age barrier in Reiki treatments. The elderly benefit tremendously from regular Reiki sessions as do infants (and fetuses!) and everyone of all ages in between. Reiki treatments are always safe. Reiki never harms, it can only heal.
Here is a list of a few of the benefits of regular Reiki treatments:
Soothing relief in times of grief
Reduced pain and anxiety
Reduce the need for pain medication
Relief from depression
Increase of self-esteem
Helps with addictions
It is wonderful for expectant mothers (and nervous papas!) Reiki is so safe and gentle, fetuses love it. I personally recommend a pregnant woman have Reiki treatments throughout her pregnancy and after the baby is born, then take a Level I class so she can continue treating her baby daily. However, the father certainly can get his Reiki attunement (take a class) and treat his wife and baby throughout the pregancy.
