Reiki is a hands-on healing technique that originated in Japan in the early
1900's and is now practiced
throughout the world by millions of practitioners. It is now accepted and
practiced in professional health care situations such as hospitals and hospices.
Reiki is believed to be a revival of ancient Tibetan healing techniques. The Japanese word means
universal life energy. The Reiki
practitioner transmits this energy to the client during a treatment to enhance
health and well being. The ability to transmit this energy is passed on from the
Reiki Master teacher to the student during Reiki training.
Why do Reiki on animals?
Like humans, our pets can have physical, emotional and mental problems. Also,
animals that live with us often take on their owner's problems, in an attempt to
heal them. If the animal can't discharge the energy, this can make them sick. An
animal that has been abused or simply not had the proper environment when young
can carry trauma in their body that needs healing. While it is true that animals
are our healers (some say that "cats invented Reiki"), sometimes we need to be
their healers too.
Providing Reiki treatments for our pets is a loving way to extend healing
energy to them. It can help reduce pain and enhance the animal's innate healing
ability, leading to accelerated recovery from injuries and illness.
Reiki for both people and pets
People and pets often "mirror" each other's physical and emotional state.
This happens because of the deep bond between them and the desire to heal each
other. Because of the shared energy in this close relationships, energetic
imbalances are shared as well. For optimum healing potential, joint treatments
for people and their pets are recommended.
End of Life
Reiki is an excellent way to facilitate the transition to the other side for
people or help your pet cross the
Rainbow Bridge. It moves the physical energy to wear it is needed in the
body the most (e.g., pain relief, stuck energy). The practitioner does not need
to know the diagnosis or even the source of the illness. We have used Reiki on
all our pets as they passed over the Rainbow Bridge.
What happens during a Reiki treatment?
The Reiki practitioner will place their hands on or near the client's body
and transmit healing energy. You remain fully clothed, lying on a comfortable
massage table. You may or may not feel the Reiki energy. It can feel like
warmth, tingling, buzzing or deep relaxation.
What results can I expect from Reiki?
Most people report feeling more relaxed and energized. Reiki can assist with
healing and balancing all levels of the body: physical, emotional and mental.
The practitioner does not control the energy or the outcome of the treatment.
Rather, the intelligence of Reiki is in charge of the energy and the
practitioner is simply a channel. A feeling of well-being, contentment and peace
is usually experienced by the recipient and frequently the practitioner too. The
recipient sometimes even falls asleep.
Some results reported by people and pets include:
Improvement of medical conditions
Increased effectiveness of other therapies
