Reiki for Animals
What is Animal Reiki?

The word “Reiki” is most often translated as “universal life energy.” Along with other therapies such as acupuncture and homeopathy, Reiki is part of the emerging field of energy healing. This field is becoming more popular throughout the world today, rediscovered from the wisdom and knowledge of ancient cultures for use in modern times. A technique originally developed in Japan, it is ideal for healing animals because it is gentle, painless, non-invasive, and stress-free. It 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—physical, emotional, or spiritual. By reducing stress and tension in the body, improving the flow of energy within the biofield, and calming the anxious mind, there is a more balanced energy flow throughout the body, and healing can begin to take place.

As a holistic healing system, it can be used with both conventional and alternative therapies and can enhance their actions and lessen their side effects. Reiki can be used with any animal of any age and to help alleviate any physical or behavioral health issue. It brings no harm to any living thing to produce its healing properties. There is virtually no problem or circumstance that cannot be treated effectively with Reiki.

What are the Benefits of Animal Reiki?

Reiki can help animals to:

  • Prevent illness through helping to maintain a state of physical and emotional balance
  • Heal emotionally: following trauma, abuse, neglect, and fear and trust issues
  • Induce deep relaxation and stress-reduction, reducing the tendency toward nervousness over time
  • Relieve pain and speed up recovery from surgery or long-term illness
  • Provide compassionate support that can make a transition to death in a more peaceful way for all concerned
What happens during an Animal Reiki session?

Unlike a structured Reiki session for humans, the location and length of time for the session for the animal may vary. The session should take place in the setting where the animal is most comfortable: generally at home. During the session, the animal will be able to freely move about, and also be able to decide where and when he or she will accept the Reiki energy. The practitioner will offer the Reiki energy at first at a distance, so that the animal is able to make the choice to accept the energy or not. If the animal is accepting, the practitioner may move closer and offer hands-on healing. The animal may even move one body part closer to the practitioner’s hands in order to receive the healing in a certain area. There is no set amount of time for the healing: the animal may choose to move away and return to the healing many times, but will eventually move away from the practitioner and make the decision to end the session.
