Reiki for Birth to Teens

 Reiki & Pregnancy

When a woman becomes pregnant, the heart begins to beat for two and the task of both growing and nurturing her developing child becomes a balancing act to ensure the health and well-being their children as well as themselves. This balance can be assisted with Reiki treatments assisting both mother and child in preparation for the incredible journey they will embark together.

Reiki works to alleviate mental anxiety, restlessness, fear, and worry,  while also relieving physical tension (an essential ingredient for a positive birthing experience).  Receiving Reiki treatments when trying to conceive a child, during pregnancy (or after miscarriage), and in the early days of motherhood will bring renewed energy, strength, relaxation, and rejuvenation.

It will promote deep, peaceful sleep by easing the stress and physical discomfort that can present itself during the late stages of pregnancy and first months of motherhood when a new family is adjusting to all of the changes that are occurring. 

Prenatal & Post natal Stress

There is growing scientific evidence which supports the idea that maternal stress directly affects babies both in uterus as well as after birth in the delicate stages of infancy.

Chronic stress existing within pregnant mothers can lead to sleeping and feeding difficulties in newborns.  As these children continue to grow and develop, symptoms of anxiety, decreased attention span, and behavioural problems may arise.  Prenatal and postnatal stress can be linked to many health conditions that are separate from genetic influences. Protecting the essential well-being of the mother in turn works to protect the fragile well-being of her child.

 With no judgement The Reiki Intuitive Niki Baggs can assist you to learn to quiet the mind and soothe the body. This is vastly important for conception, pregnancy, birth, postnatal healing, and mothering.  Reiki and meditation allows revitalising positive energy to easily flow through the body and baby, promoting whole health while bringing confidence and renewal of energies.  Fostering a peaceful sense of being can only lead to true bonding and the deepest connection between mother and baby.

Reiki for Children

There are many people who believe that Reiki is only for adults. However, the fact is that Reiki is for everyone: infants, toddlers, teenagers, young people, elderly, plants, animals and almost every living thing. 

In this stressful era, many parents are learning the use and implementation of Reiki to help their children to focus, relax and recover from any sort of problems in their life.

 

Children are aware very quick to recognise the benefits to Reiki and can often guide where their energy is in need of balancing.  Niki has seen many children benefit from treatment and under taking Reiki training for them selves
