What is Reiki?

A Reiki session offers you a brief pause in time to relax and centre the focus on yourself. Enjoy a stress-relieving sequence of touch that will leave you feeling rejuvenated and at peace. Julia, our Reiki Master at Rooted Family Wellness Centre in Kanata, Ottawa, has over five years of experience practising on children, babies, parents, and individuals alike. Her approach is gentle, calming, and inviting - you don’t need any experience with Reiki to feel comfortable.

  • Pain Relief: Reiki can provide relief from chronic pain, headaches, and discomfort.
  • Improved Mental and Physical Balance: The balancing effects of Reiki can enhance overall well-being and harmony.
  • Calmness and Relaxation: Clients often report feeling more at peace and relaxed after a session.

Reiki for Parents and Children

Julia is also our Gentle Sleep Consultant and can combine her sleep consultation sessions with Reiki to offer mental and physical balancing through light touch energetic therapy to parents and their little ones. Reiki can be a rejuvenating, relaxing, and pleasant experience for anyone in the family. It is particularly effective for addressing sleep hardships in the household.

How Reiki Can Help Parents and Children

  • Pain Relief: Eases headaches and stiffness from feeding/nursing.
  • Reduced Anxiety and Stress: Helps alleviate the stress and anxiety that often accompany parenting.
  • Recovery Support: Aids in recovery after birth.
  • Improved Sleep: Enhances sleep quality for everyone in the home by promoting deep relaxation.

Parents often experience sleep woes even when their little one is finally snoozing. Since many sleep issues stem from stress and anxiety, utilising Reiki for deep relaxation can lead to better sleep for everyone. Reiki also helps relax the parents' mindset, bringing clarity and confidence in trusting their instincts when it comes to parenting their kids to sleep.
