Animal Reiki & Energy Work
What is Animal Reiki?
Reiki is a non-invasive, painless and stress-free complementary therapy which is totally safe for use on animals. It involves a specifically trained practitioner gently placing their hands on or near the body, with animals it is often carried out from a distance as there is no need for pressure or manipulation. How does Reiki work? People and animals are born with the natural ability to heal themselves, which is suppressed when they become energetically out of balance. As with human Reiki, animal Reiki works by the practitioner channeling a flow of universal life energy through their hands to the animal. This is used to restore the energy flow around the body and re-balance the energy centers, commonly known as the chakras. In doing so, the animal becomes calm and relaxed, thus stimulating its natural healing ability.
How can Reiki help your pets?
Reiki can help animals in a myriad of ways. With healthy animals, Reiki can help maintain health on all levels. Reiki can enable the healing of physical illness and injury as well as problems on an emotional level. It is a powerful tool for behavioural issues and emotional healing following trauma, abuse, neglect, reaching deeply into even the most damaged spirits. For anxious, stressed or highly strung animals, Reiki induces deep relaxation and stress-reduction which over time can reduce the tendency toward nervousness. Reiki can accelerate rehabilitation after injury, surgery or illness and is very effective when used alongside conventional veterinary care, whereby it enhances treatment and can lessen any side effects.
Some of the issues Reiki can help with
Neglect, fear and trust issues

Helping to relieve pain in the body
It is best for an animal to receive a Reiki treatment in an environment that is familiar and comfortable so that it can feel safe and relaxed. It is best to use a quiet space to give the treatment where the practitioner and animal will not be disturbed. A familiar place, where they can move around safely without constraints, such as a small room in the animal's home is best. I will generally travel to the animal's environment to give a treatment since most animals are stressed in an unfamiliar environment and are much more relaxed and at ease at home.

Every animal has a different character and therefore will respond to the Reiki energy in a slightly different way. The pace of the treatment will be guided by the animal, but will generally last around 30 minutes.
Gently rocking Kelsie's hips and back to ease them back into alignment during an energy work and tuning fork sound therapy session. No manipulation is needed using this technique, it's 100% pain free for the animal I am working on & as you can see Kelsie is very relaxed, she finished off with a lovely stretch from the point of hip, extending it fully.
