Reiki for Pets
Reiki is a hands-on healing method that originated in Japan. The practitioner channels healing energy through her hands to the animal through a light touch either directly on the body or from a distance. The word Reiki (pronounced “ray-key”) is a Japanese composite word usually translated as “universal life energy”. It is based on the idea that all living beings have life energy flowing through them. When life energy is high, your pets are healthy and balanced, more relaxed and less likely to get sick. When it is low, they’ll often be more easily affected by stress and less resistant to illness. Reiki is a safe complement to conventional Western medicine, Chinese medicine, herbal medicine, homeopathy and all other forms of healing.
Animals, especially cats, are naturally receptive to the Reiki energy and tend to gravitate towards it readily (some people even say cats invented Reiki). Some pets may initially prefer to experience the energy from a slight distance, rather than having the practitioner’s hands directly on them.
Reiki can help your animal companion
by providing relief from the effects of arthritis, rheumatism and other debilitating conditions.
by accelerating the healing of post surgical trauma, wounds, breaks and sprains.
by delaying the onset and progression of certain diseases.
by energizing and revitalizing an older animal.
by soothing and calming highly strung, hyperactive or stressed animals.
by helping to alleviate lethargy and depression.
by helping with transitions such as moving house, introduction to, or loss of, another pet.
by helping rescued animals adjust to their new surroundings and preparing them for a future in a stable family life
by providing comfort, relief from pain, fear or anxiety
by comforting them, and their owner, during the transition from this world to the next.
