How Reiki May Help ADHD Sufferers
Reiki offers a number of different benefits that may be helpful for people struggling with ADHD. Some of these potential benefits are listed below.
- Reiki may improve concentration.
- Reiki may aid in relaxation.
People with ADHD find it hard to calm down, even when they have no appropriate reason to be excited. One of the primary benefits of Reiki is relaxation, which may be helpful for someone who struggles with hyperactivity. Over time, the individual may find it easier to relax even outside of his or her Reiki sessions.
- Reiki may reduce stress levels.
Stress can exacerbate the symptoms of ADHD. In addition, living with ADHD can be stressful in itself, as many sufferers struggle to succeed in school or in their professional lives. According to studies, people who participate in Reiki sessions on a regular basis report that they feel less stress and anxiety than they did before beginning Reiki. This reduction in stress can help to lessen the symptoms of ADHD and improve the client’s overall quality of life.
- Reiki may improve the quality of sleep.
Many people struggling with ADHD experience sleep disturbances, including trouble falling asleep, trouble staying asleep, problems with sleep cycles and more. These sleep disturbances have a direct effect on the individual’s health, and they can make many of the symptoms of ADHD worse. Reiki may improve the quality of sleep for these individuals.
- Reiki may boost the mood.
Although mood disturbances are not always a symptom of ADHD, some people with this condition do deal with depression as a result of their struggles. Studies have shown that people who participate in Reiki sessions on a regular basis feel less depressed and more optimistic.
- Reiki won’t interact with other treatments.
Reiki is completely noninvasive and causes no side effects. Thus, people with ADHD can engage in Reiki without altering any other component of their treatment plans.
