Reiki is beneficial for mental health and well being as it helps calm the mind and can reduce physical pain. Reiki is ideal to use with the elderly including those living with dementia.
To develop a greater understanding of dementia and other ways the mind can be affected by age, I completed a course in the Principles of Dementia level 2.
Some medical professionals believe Reiki helps provide positive mental responses in patients and because of this has seen the introduction of Reiki in to the NHS. Trials of Reiki are now being offered as a support to NHS patients during recovery and treatment for cancer. Reiki is the SAFEST alternative therapy and can be used alongside ALL medication and is safe to use on persons of all ages and ability both physically and mentally.
