Reiki Healing for Animals

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a non-invasive, complementary and alternative healing practice that promotes overall health and well-being. Originating in Japan, Reiki works with the animal or human to facilitate their own healing response. The word "Reiki" is derived from two Japanese words: rei, meaning "universal"; and ki, meaning "life energy".

Reiki for Animals

Animals are highly intuitive and sensitive to the energies of their surroundings. Reiki is a healing energy that can be used alone or as a complement to other healing practices, balancing the energy patterns and strengthening the animal's natural healing systems. When the animal's healing are at optimum performance, the body, mind and spirit can heal itself. Reiki can serve animals in the following ways:

  • Maintaining health and well being.
  • Aiding in pain management for animals who are ill or injured.
  • Promoting relaxation and calm for animals with emotional issues, anxiety, separation anxiety or stress.
  • Increasing bond between human and animal - a great way to ease an animal's transition to a new home environment or to enhance training your pet.
  • Bringing peace and comfort to a dying pet by easing the transition into death.

Note: Reiki is not a substitute for taking your pet to your veterinarian. If your animal needs immediate assistance, please contact your veterinarian immediately.
