Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a gentle Japanese energy-balancing method founded by Mikao Usui and translates to ‘universal life energy’. It is a process that aids natural healing (used in the sense of regaining harmony) and works on physical, emotional, and mental levels. Alongside acupuncture and homeopathy, Reiki is part of the group of energetic healing practices being rediscovered but having been used in ancient cultures for hundreds of years.
Reiki works with the energy in our own bodies; it knows exactly where to go and how to respond to restrictions in our energy flow, it just needs a clear channel to help guide it, and that’s where I come in!
As a Reiki Master, I can use Reiki to help your animal:
- feel less stress and anxiety, and more able to cope
- have more energy
- build a stronger bond with you
- feel relief from chronic ailments
- heal faster from physical injuries
As Reiki flows through a sick or unhealthy area (be that body or mind), it breaks up ‘blockages’ and allows the area to function in a balanced healthy way, replacing illness with wellness and supporting the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
Reiki is not intrusive – it works as effectively ‘hands-off’ and at a distance as it does ‘hands-on’, which is ideal for nervous animals.
Reiki is not harmful – if an animal doesn’t want to receive Reiki, it will simply have no effect on them. If they choose to receive it, it will go where needed.
Reiki is complementary to veterinary medicine – it works in conjunction with regular medical treatments and you should firstly see your vet if you have any healthcare concerns. Reiki works in harmony with all other forms of healing, including drugs, surgery, psychological care or any other method of alternative care and can improve the results.
