Benefits of Reiki for animals may include: 


  • enhanced overall wellness: Just like people, even healthy pets can have occasional physical, emotional and mental imbalances that, if left untreated, can manifest as illness. Periodic Reiki treatments can help maintain your pet’s natural state of well-being and balance, improve relaxation & aid deeper sleep.

  • stress & pain relief: Reiki accelerates healing following illness or surgery and can provide pain relief and relaxation, enhancing the body’s own innate healing ability.

  • strengthened immune system: Medical interventions such as chemotherapy and radiation can cause additional stress to an animal's immune system. Reiki helps to strengthen the immune system while reducing side effects caused by some conventional  veterinary treatments.

  • detoxification: Reiki can alleviate and prevent some of the side effects of drugs such as pain killers and antibiotics, and any accumulation of toxins that can build up in the body from extended use of medications such as pain killers, steroids and anti-inflammatories, as well as treatments given for flea/tick control, deworming and even caused by poor diet.

  • improvement of behavioural issues: Many behavioural issues are caused by stress and fear. Reiki and EFT (another energy therapy) can have a calming effect and may help the animal to be more open to behaviour modification. This may be extremely beneficial for animals with a history of abuse. The gentle healing touch of Reiki energy can also help restore trust in animals who associate human touch with being hurt.

  • releasing emotional blockages: Animals have emotions, just like we do. Like people, animals experience negative events in their lives. They may have had unpleasant and even traumatic past experiences which can have a detrimental effect on their emotional wellbeing. Energies can become 'stuck' due to these events, and can contribute to their becoming ill and having dis-ease. Reiki and EFT help to balance an animal's energy and can aid in the healing of past trauma. While we cannot change what has happened in the past, we can work on shifting the energy of it. This can help to clear these emotional blockages and create a more calm and peaceful state of being. 

  • balancing the chakras: The 'chakras' are the body's energy centres. Energy therapies helps to keep these energies in flow and balance the chakras.

  • strengthening the bond between you and your animal companion: Animals are very sensitive to their human companion's emotional state. When their human is unwell, a pet can mirror the person's problems,acting like a buffer at first for the energy but eventually becoming ill. This can happen because of the deep bond shared between an animal and their person. For optimum healing, sometimes joint treatments for pets and their people can be beneficial. 

  • easing the transition at end of life: Reiki may bring a sense of comfort and help reduce pain, anxiety and fear for terminally ill animals and those who may be nearing their end of life. Reiki is a wonderful way to facilitate an animal's end-of-life transition and may also thereby help their humans at this very difficult and emotional time. Often, animals will not allow themselves to transition because they intuitively feel that their person is not ready to let them go. Reiki treatments for an animal may help during this emotionally difficult time by enhancing the bond they havewith their human and facilitating a gentle transition.
