Animals are usually very open to the healing energy of Reiki which can be used to accelerate their own healing processes, ease pain, reducing stress, and to improve quality of life. Animal Reiki is safe, gentle, accessible and accepted by all species of animals and pets. It’s great to use on rescues, for PTSD and trauma in pets, and even with farm and zoo animals. Animals too afraid to be touched, unable to be moved, or who are aggressive or wild can be treated as effectively remotely using "distance healing".
Some of the benefits of Reiki for pets include:
Just like people, even healthy pets can have occasional physical, emotional and mental imbalances that if left untreated, can manifest as illness. Periodic Reiki treatments can help maintain your pet’s natural state of well-being and balance.
Many behavior issues are caused by stress. Reiki has a calming effect on the pet and may help make the pet more receptive to training and behavior modification. Reiki can be very beneficial for animals with a history of abuse. The gentle touch of Reiki energy can help restore trust in animals who have learned to associate being touched with being hurt.
Reiki can be administered to provide additional pain relief and relaxation to facilitate and enhance the body’s natural healing response.
Cancer therapies such as chemotherapy and radiation present stress to an already compromised immune system. Reiki can be provided with the intent to strengthen the immune system to better deal with this additional stress and may be used to assist in the discomfort associated with the side effects of conventional cancer therapies.
People and pets often mirror each other’s physical and emotional states. Animals are natural healers and sometimes take on their person’s problems. This happens because of the deep bond shared between a pet and his or her person. Because of the shared energy in such a close relationship, energetic imbalances are shared between pet and owner as well. For optimum healing, joint treatments for people and their pets can often be beneficial.
Reiki sessions for pets will take place in your home and typically last 30 minutes. The length and frequency of sessions depends entirely on each individual animal’s health status and needs. Some health issues can be positively impacted after just a few sessions, while others may take ongoing sessions on a recurring basis. The frequency of sessions will be tailored to you and your pet’s individual needs.
Reiki treatments are not intended as a substitute for proper veterinary care, but work to compliment traditional medical or therapeutic techniques to promote an animal’s overall well-being.
Reiki can be given remotely. Distance healing, also known as remote healing, is an energetic healing process that can be best explained through the principles of quantum physics. It can be as effective as an in-person hands-on healing session. By being able to send our healing energy from a distance, healing can take place in the most relaxed and non-threatening positive environment possible. If you decide to use distance healing, you'll get an email report on how your session went, including any scan results.
