Embracing Autism

My reiki journey began when I was working as a Behavioural Therapist with children with Autism using ABA therapy. A reiki practitioner used to work with a client and as therapists we observed that whenever the reiki session was before our therapy session, the child was a lot calmer. This was a breakthrough for us as our sessions were more productive. We did not have to spend the therapy time to calm the child’s behaviour.
On close observation, it was evident that Reiki had been beneficial with lowering the intensity of anxiety in general, promoted calmness and improved sleep patterns.

Curiosity and the passion to hold space for children with autism and their caregivers, led me to the beginning of my reiki journey.

I have given reiki healing sessions to young children with autism and ADHD, teens and young adults. At first, some were resistant but willing to give it a try. The fact that they were ready to make me and my sessions a part of their journey, was an accomplishment itself. But slowly, as they comprehended and became comfortable to a light touch and/or the sensations felt during a session, they were more open to receiving.

My experience includes working at an in-home setting using ABA therapy and in a school setting in the Counseling Enriched Program.


  • Reduction in the intensity of anxiety
  • Ease in pain and discomfort
  • Regulated bowel movements
  • Better sleep patterns
  • Sense of Calmness
  • Stress management
  • Managing emotions

The families and caregivers of individuals with autism go through a lot of stress, be it emotional, physical or mental. The anxiety and stress of therapies, managing the daily schedule, time management and managing one’s emotions as well the emotions of the individual with autism can be challenging. Regulating the energy of the body can help in releasing emotions and stagnant energy, energise the depleted energy field and reclaim peace.

Consistency, Repetition, Structure, Frequency, Dedication and Discipline are needed for any therapy to show measurable results for most individuals. Respecting the uniqueness of each individual, the duration of seeing measurable results may vary. The openness to receive healing, comfort, cooperation and willingness of the individual may contribute to the response to the healing.
