Our pets are healthy and balanced when their vibrational energy is high, they are more relaxed and less likely to become sick. When their energy is low, they can be more prone to illness from stress and the energy of those around them. A trained and certified Reiki Practitioner channels healing energy through their hands to the animal with a light touch either directly on the body or from a distance. Reiki is a safe compliment to conventional Western medicine and various forms of Holistic healing.
Reiki energy has been shown to improve the quality of life when added to your pet’s healthcare program. Reiki benefits and healing treatments are now being used by many veterinarians, hospice care facilities and professional offices for both humans and pets alike.
Reiki (“Ray-kee”) is a Japanese world meaning “spiritually guided life force energy.” Reiki is a relaxing, powerful healing technique that was developed by Dr. Mikao Usui. Dr. Usui developed these powerful Japanese healing techniques in the late 1800’s, Reiki was originally intended for spiritual development. However, Reiki is being used today for hands-on treatments as well as from a distance or remotely to rebalance energy which in turn assists the healing process in all living things. Reiki is based on the idea that and unseen “life force energy” flows through every living thing and is what ensures us to be alive, breathing, healthy and vibrant.
There are several levels of Reiki. A certified Reiki Practitioner must be attuned by a Reiki Master Practitioner to preform Reiki treatments on animals and people. Unlike other healing methods Reiki is not just taught it is transferred to the student by a Reiki Master Practitioner during what is called the attunement process. This process creates a special link between the recipient and the Reiki source.
During the Reiki healing session, the Reiki practitioner places their hands on or above the recipient’s body usually starting at the head, holding the position until the Reiki energy starts to flow, the hand positions move over the body until all the chakra’s have been covered. Reiki energy will always flow to the areas where it is needed most to the recipient be it physical, mental or spiritual. Most pets feel an immediate sense of relaxation, peace and relief from pain, some feel the effects a few hours or days later. Each session can provide a different experience, always with a positive, healing and healthy outcome with wonderful Reiki benefits.
