You may have heard of Reiki as a healing practice. It is a gentle, yet powerful form of healing utilising subtle energies to bring about health and well-being for the receiver. As well as being a partner in Outdoor Companionship with my wife Alison, I practice Reiki, Crystal Healing and Shamanic Healing, and have experience of using Reiki, as well as the other practices, with a dementia sufferer. It has the effect of inducing deep relaxation and a sense of well-being, which is of great benefit to anyone with dementia or Alzheimer’s as insecurity and agitation are common states affecting them. This more relaxed state of course has a knock-on, beneficial effect for any carer who is with them. I found that after giving the treatments the person was much calmer and, rather than experiencing her usual concerns, appeared to be more in the moment and happy. Reiki is not only beneficial for emotional states but also for physical ailments: so the person with dementia receiving a Reiki treatment will also experience improvements in their physical health.
