Autism & Learning Differences
Reiki used for people with Autism and Learning Differences
People living with Autism and Learning Differences usually feedback that they have a 'good day' after receiving Reiki. It helps bring calm, a greater sense of peace and over time, can improve focus and anxiety levels.
Once again, while it is wonderful to have treatments from a practitioner, in most cases, it's preferable that a family member or carer give more regular treatments.
Autism and sleep problems
I once gave Reiki to a 12 year old boy with Autism who was having severe sleep problems and suffering from nightmares. I treated him, with his and his mother's permission, at night as he was going to sleep. I stayed a couple of hours each time. Gradually over a few weeks of regular treatment, his sleep improved, he started to feel safer and his school remarked on his improved concentration levels.
After that, I taught his mother so she could continue to give him Reiki treatments regularly.
