Reiki Healing for Pets

Reiki healing can help ease pain, improve immune function and reduce stress.

Reiki is a holistic healing practice that was originally developed in Japan in the early 20th Century. It combines elements of ancient hand-on-healing techniques, Traditional Chinese Medicine and mindfulness meditation, to create a gentle system for improving wellbeing and facilitating healing of mind, body and spirit.

Reiki works on the premise that all living beings have an innate ability to heal themselves and that disease, pain and emotional distress are all the results of imbalances -- physiological, emotional or spiritual. By reducing stress and tension in the body, improving the flow of energy within the biofield, and calming the anxious mind, balance can be restored and healing can begin to take place.

Because animals are, by nature, so sensitive to the energy and non-verbal communication that we share with them, Reiki is an ideal practice for use with animals of any age, temperament and state-of-health. During the journey with cancer or at the end of life, Reiki can be especially helpful in reducing stress and feelings of pain or discomfort. It can also be used by the human family to manage caregiver stress and anticipatory grief. 

During a Reiki session, most animals will become extremely relaxed or even fall asleep. While benefit can often be seen after just one session of 30-60 minutes, with regular treatments, Reiki can be even more beneficial and can often reduce symptoms of illness or discomfort, and improve overall quality of life. Reiki is NOT a magic cure for cancer or old age -- there is no such thing. It is however, a proven supportive therapy that is extremely safe and gentle. And unlike many other therapies, there are no adverse effects from Reiki and it will not interfere with any other conventional or holistic treatments.
