Reiki For Pets
Animals, including wild animals, intuitively recognize and appreciate Reiki’s ability to heal. They often quickly learn to seek it out on their own. Animals often respond more quickly to Reiki Healing than people do and positive results are usually seen in a relatively short period of time.
Reiki heals at all levels of an animal’s being and does not cause stress discomfort or pain.
Reiki is an effective form of complementary animal healing and using it alongside veterinary treatments can accelerate the healing process, ease pain, and improve, or help to continue, the animal’s quality of life.
Which animals can benefit from Animal Reiki Healing?
Healthy, ill and dying animals can all benefit from Reiki Treatment.
For healthy animals, Reiki Treatments help to maintain the state of health, enhancing peace and overall well-being.
For animals that are ill, Animal Reiki assists healing at the deepest levels and is a safe complement to conventional medicine, Chinese medicine, homeopathy, flower essences and all other forms of healing. Reiki also helps to reduce the side effects of other treatments.
For dying animals Reiki is a highly effective yet gentle way to provide comfort, pain relief, alleviate anxiety and fear and to ease the transition from this life. Reiki Healing can also provide support and help with grief for the animal’s owner.
What to expect from Animal Reiki Treatment
The treatment usually begins a short distance away from the animal rather than with hands on healing. This helps to build up trust and gives the animal the opportunity to feel the healing energy. The animal decides how much Reiki they want.
Animals are more sensitive to energy than people and quickly understand its healing potential. During a treatment the animal may move closer to the Reiki Healer or may choose to lie away from them. It is their choice and wherever they are they will still receive the benefit from Reiki Healing.
Healing and the Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966
Healing – channelling healing energy through the hands from a universal source of energy -should not be used as a substitute for veterinary care and attention.
Please note that Paragraph 18 of Part 2F of the RCVS Guide to Professional Conduct provides information including that all animals must be seen by a veterinary surgeon, and that the vet is content for healing to be given by the laying on of hands.
With any concerns that you may have about an animals’ health or well being, your first port of call must be a veterinarian. Only a vet may make a diagnosis, or prescribe.
