Reiki Healing for Animals – bringing balance into their livescanstockphoto20396536

Animals recognise the energy and healing power of Reiki. When I offer Reiki healing to an animal, I find that the animal will often come up to my hands to sniff and seek out where the sensation they can feel is coming from. They realise that it is coming from the palms of my hands and often settle between my hands, as close as they can to the healing energy that is being passed to them, through me. I am able to channel this energy and direct it to where it is most needed, focusing on areas of physical discomfort, or improving and balancing the flow of energy through the body’s energy systems. The animals guide me through their own healing process, moving closer to me or further away, turning themselves so that they can receive healing to a certain spot and pushing areas of their bodies into my hands, as if to say, “There, it’s just there!”


How might Reiki help my pet?canstockphoto21773899

  • Physical issues such as pain.
  • Emotional issues such as fear, grief or adjusting to a new home.
  • Anxious behaviours such as fear of fireworks, barking or pacing.
  • Behavioural problems such as aggression or biting.
  • Aids relaxation by helping to reduce anxiety and stress levels.
  • Rescue animals – helps to bring peace and calm to troubled pets and enables trust to develop.
  • Young animals – helps them to cope with leaving their mum’s for the first time and to bond with their new family.
  • Older animals – helps to support a good quality of life.
  • End of life support.
  • Aids relationship issues – between pets or between an owner and a pet.
  • Works holistically, restoring balance to your animal’s whole energy system, physically, mentally and emotionally. By helping to improve and balance the flow of energy through the body’s energy systems, Reiki can help to support and enhance your animal’s own natural healing processes.
  • Reiki healing can also be successfully sent from a distance, which is very beneficial for those animals who dislike or fear direct physical contact.
  • Suitable for all animals from domestic and exotic pets, to horses and farm animals.canstockphoto14312103


What to expect from a Reiki session for your animal

  • Home or yard visit at a quiet and convenient time to ensure that your animal is as relaxed as possible.
  • Sessions last approximately one hour.
  • I tune in to your animal to ensure that Reiki healing is accepted and desired. An animal often indicates that they are happy to receive Reiki, by either approaching me or by becoming sleepy and relaxed. If your pet indicates that they would prefer not to receive Reiki, alternative healing is available, such as Transformational Bodywork Healing for Animals or Applied Zoopharmacognosy.
  • Your animal will interact with me and with the Reiki energy and will often display various natural behaviours, such as yawning, circling, stretching, vocalising, lying down and falling asleep.
  • I will work intuitively with your animal, allowing them to guide the healing and providing you with feedback throughout the session.
  • There will be an opportunity for discussion at the end of the session.
  • Alternatively, distance healing is available for animals. Owners are contacted via email or Skype.


What about Veterinary care?

Reiki is not intended to be a replacement for veterinary care and advice. A vet should always be your first port of call when you are worried about the health of your pet. Please check with your vet that they are happy for your animal to have a Reiki session, before contacting me to make to make an appointment.
