Reiki for Animals

What is Reiki?

For anyone not familiar with Reiki, you might wonder exactly what it is.

Definitions of Reiki may vary but in essence they describe its holistic complementary nature, supporting and not replacing orthodox medical or veterinary treatment. Reiki is a form of ‘energy healing’ or transfer of energy between a practitioner and the recipient with origins that date back thousands of years. The Japanese word ‘Reiki’ literally translates as universal life force energy.

Reiki is not based on any belief, faith or suggestion, and scientific research using quantum physics is starting to help us to understand how Reiki may work to benefit the individual. It has been suggested that in years to come it may be known as energy medicine based on scientifically measurable energy emitted from the healer’s hands.

Reiki is given fully clothed, in a quiet environment and is safe for adults, children, mothers-to-be, babies and animals. However, in the case of animals with health issues, owners should confirm that the animal has been seen by a veterinary surgeon to obtain a veterinary diagnosis. Reiki Practitioners do not diagnose the health problem.

How is Reiki Offered

Reiki  can be performed in person, or through distance healing, so it doesn’t matter whether you can visit with your pet or not.

Distance healing is performed using photographs along with some background information. I have worked with wildlife, pets, children and adults using this method with a lot of very positive feedback and results.

Animals have given me so much pleasure and support during my life and it is very rewarding to be able to give something back to the animal kingdom. 

A sample of some of the comments I have received…

“It’s fantastic, my dog has been running madly back and forward along the beach and hasn’t been limping or sore”

“My cat is grieving for her feline companion who died recently but she is now much more relaxed and beginning to eat again”
