Reiki for Pets

If you love your pets with all your heart (don’t we all!), then giving them the gift of Reiki in life and in death is quite possibly the most loving thing you can do for them.

Pets need healing too

reiki services for petsReiki is a great healing therapy for animals—large or small. Like us, animals have a physical body and an energetic body, which can benefit from Reiki energy. 

Reiki is ideal for use with pets because it is gentle, noninvasive and doesn’t require physical contact. It doesn’t cause stress, discomfort, or pain, and yet yields powerful results. Animals respond intuitively to Reiki’s power to support the healing of emotional, behavioral, and physical illnesses and injuries.  


When is Reiki used for pets?

For pets who are healthy, Reiki helps to maintain their health, enhances relaxation and provides an emotional sense of peace and contentment.  

For pets who are ill, Reiki is a wonderful healing method as well as a safe complement to Western Medicine, Chinese Medicine, homeopathy, flower essences, and all other forms of healing. For example, Reiki can reduce the side effects of chemotherapy, support an acupuncture treatment, and complement the effects of flower essences. 

For dying pets, Reiki is a powerful yet gentle way to provide comfort, relief from pain, fear, and anxiety, and to ease the transition to death. Reiki is also a wonderful way to support a dying animal’s family.

I personally, regularly use Reiki on all my pets, especially at the time of their death. I have seen (and felt) the peaceful transformation that occurs when my pets are ready to pass on. Being able to help them have a peaceful death also reduces my grief significantly, and keeps me connected to them. In life, Reiki deepens the bond of love and connection we have with our animals.


Making a booking for your pet

The initial session will generally last for approximately one hour. This first session consists of 15-20 minutes reiki on your pet, a short 10-15 minutes Reiki for you, the pet owner (especially if you are anxious or upset), and some general counselling about energy healing, working with illness, the importance of a good death and creating peaceful surrounds, help with acceptance.

Follow up sessions are generally much shorter for animals than for humans, simply because animals, as a rule, won’t sit still for an hour like a human client will. Nevertheless, regular short treatments can have a powerful effect. Make a booking today.
