What IS Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese spiritual practice based in meditation that also has therapeutic applications. Reiki meditation practice for the practitioner helps him/her to let go of anger, worry, fear, and stress to uncover his/her best inner qualities of peace, gratitude and compassion. The goal of Reiki self-practice is living a happier, healthier life. Daily Reiki practice also increases the practitioner’s ability to support others with peace and compassion, even in the cases of serious health issues or difficult situations. Sharing Reiki with others involves touch therapy in the case of humans and sharing meditation in the case of animals. The goal of offering Reiki to others is to promote relaxation and stress-relief, which in turn promotes self-healing of body, mind, and spirit.
Animals are also affected by their people’s health issues, and in fact, sometimes an animal’s issue is really their person’s issue. By sharing Reiki with animals' people, we can help create a healing possibility between the person and their animal, deepen their bond and nurture their heart-to-heart connection. When we are present with our animals, with an open heart and mind, this is the ideal space for us to nurture healthy relationships, to learn from one another and to support each other to live a happier and healthier life.
I achieved my Reiki Practitioner’s Master certification in 2017, but I have technically been practicing Reiki on humans and animals for almost 20 years. One of the wonderful aspects of the gentle, meditative approach of Reiki is that it can be shared with any animal, no matter their level of trust for humans. Reiki can help even the most traumatized animals relax and feel a strong sense of wellbeing. This is important in creating not only healing of body, mind, and spirit, but also Reiki creates the first step in healing the animal/human relationship.
I have seen Reiki bring peace and comfort to animals who are in physical pain, lessen and relieve emotional stress and even bring peace to the dying process. Reiki brings healing in the form of peace and balance—in other words, it is not a “cure” for this or that problem, but don’t our bodies, minds and spirits heal at their best when we are relaxed and comfortable? Reiki practitioners do not diagnose issues, and in fact do not need to know what the problem is because our approach and purpose is always the same. This is because healing is about “becoming whole,” and this is something that we all can do—even in the presence of disease. It is this wholeness and harmony of the entire being that Reiki uncovers, and that makes our self-healing abilities shine. In this way, it also makes any and every condition more manageable.
- Our session will always include YOU as the human companion in whatever capacity you desire. You are invited to participate in your Animal's session, learn more about Reiki by receiving a short session yourself, or whatever you need. Animal Reiki works for the whole family, not just the animal involved.
- Most animals allow about a 30 minutes of Reiki work.
- The fee for one session is $50. The session will last as long as your pet is willing to participate. We do not force a pet to participate in the session as Reiki can be performed from across the room if necessary.
