Each and every one of us has obstacles to overcome in our lives. They may be connected to our family, our home life, our workplace or school. At times our social environment adds stress to our lives. These obstacles often seem to be beyond our control. One obstacle is ADHD.
ADHD, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, typically begins in the earlier years of childhood. Often times, those that suffer from ADHD will continue to do so throughout their entire lives. Additionally, ADHD has grown increasingly common among students. These students present behaviors such as inattentiveness, impulsivity, hyperactivity and poor concentration. Learning in a typical classroom setting is extremely challenging for a student with ADHD. Parents and teachers are often at a loss to help such students and, as a result, often turn to medication and other mainstream remedies. However, there is one alternative method that has proven to be helpful to students and adults with ADHD. This alternative method is known as Reiki.
Reiki is a gentle, non-invasive relaxation technique which activates the natural healing process of the body. Reiki assists in quieting the mind and allows greater clarity and the ability to focus. This quieting of the mind lasts beyond the Reiki session itself and the duration will vary with each individual. Reiki is an alternative method which will naturally improve the lives of students and adults living with ADHD. Some of the benefits of Reiki are:
Improved Concentration: Sufferers of ADHD have difficulty concentrating and attending to tasks. A Reiki session will soothe and calm the body and the mind, allowing patients the ability to be more focused and have more success staying on task. This feeling of clarity and focus typically transfers into the classroom and /or work setting.
Relaxation: One of the prevalent symptoms of ADHD is hyperactivity. Hyperactivity is defined as constantly active and sometimes disruptive behavior. A common benefit of Reiki is a deep and lasting sense of relaxation and centeredness which has a direct positive impact on individuals with ADHD.
Improved Sleep: Lack of sleep will exacerbate the symptoms of ADHD. By relaxing the body and clearing the mind, Reiki very often leads to a more restful night’s sleep and improved mental clarity.
Reiki is a gentle, holistic alternative which may improve the lives of those living with ADHD. The beauty of Reiki is that it will not interfere with any existing treatments. Reiki may be easily added to your repertoire of tools to manage ADHD. It is cost effective and will bring about positive changes in the mind and body.
