Reiki (pronounced “ray-key”) is a Japanese technique for relaxation that promotes the body’s natural healing process. It is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If our “life force energy” is low, we are more likely to feel stressed or even get sick, but if it is high we are capable of feeling healthy and at ease.
Reiki is gentle and noninvasive, yet yields powerful resultsin healing emotional, behavioral and physical illnesses or injuries. It can be preformed by laying on hands or even from a distance, depending on the animal’s needs.
Energy healing is a holistic modality for our pets that views their health from the perspective of the “whole being.” This includes their physical, mental, emotional and spiritualhealth. Reiki helps bring the “whole being” back into energetic balance, which often brings about improvements or resolutions to the animal’s symptoms.
Sessions are approximately 45 minutes, but can be shorter depending on how much energy the animal feels comfortable receiving. They are always in charge of the length of treatment and will show the practitioner where to focus. Animals are intuitive, energetic beings and our loving friends. They change our lives for the better so it is no surprise that more and more pet parents are becoming interested in holistic modalities to increase the well being of their furry companions.

“I always ask permission before beginning. I want the animal to feel relaxed and comfortable in my presence. I allow them to choose how he or she will accept the treatment; it may be a combination of both hands-on and short-distance. Lastly, I let go of expectation on how the treatment should progress. I trust the animal will accept what he/she needs. I know Reiki can do no harm and will always work for the highest good of all involved.” –Brittany
