REIKI means ‘Universal Life Energy’. This ancient healing technique of laying-on of hands uses the life force energy to heal, balancing the subtle energies within the body. Reiki is a natural and safe method of spiritual healing.
Animals, like people, benefit from Reiki. Animals that receive regular grooming are more likely to be receptive to being touched for Reiki. For those who are not comfortable being touched may receive Reiki from afar, this technique is known as distant Reiki.
Reiki promotes relaxation aiding in the body’s natural balance allowing it to heal itself. For healthy animals, Reiki may simply provide an emotional state of peace and contentment. With ill animals, Reiki is a safe healing method to complement other treatments and aid with pain relief, medication side effects, fear or anxiety. In dying animals, Reiki is a gentle way to provide comfort and ease to the transition of death.
