What is Animal Reiki?

Reiki is a holistic complementary therapy and means Universal Life Energy. It is Japanese Energy healing that is gentle, non-invasive, involves no pressure or medication. It works to reduce and remove blockages within the body’s energy system, often referred to as Chi, thus allowing the body’s natural healing ability to flow.  Reiki has been a holistic therapy for humans for many years, but is now being noticed more and more for having the same benefits for animals. Seeing our pets, happy, healthy and sleeping well is what we all hope for and Reiki doesn’t have to be only for when the animal or even you are not feeling up to the mark. It’s an act of self care.

 

Although the Reiki energy and healing are ultimately the same, working for the greater good of the animal or human, there are differences between the two. For a human hands on Reiki session, the Reiki practitioner will place their hands on or slightly above the client for their session. Moving around the body during the session, which usually lasts for a hour. Most animals prefer the hands off approach, so that their personal space is not invaded by a stranger, particularly with anxious or timid animals. The practitioner will be Reiki and use a hands off approach, only laying on hands if the animal initiates. The sessions also vary, as the animal is given a choice not only in accepting the Reiki energy, but also the length of the session.  

This is why Distance Reiki for animals is a perfect option. Not only in allowing you to choose your preferred practitioner or Reiki Master from anywhere in the World, but also your pet is not placed under pressure of meeting a stranger and in some cases expected to sit still. Although, many animals tend to fall asleep during a session.

Animals are highly attuned to energy and have no preconceived notions or thoughts of the placebo effect, so they don’t doubt the effectiveness of Reiki. They sense the Reiki energy flow and have a choice to accept, knowing that Reiki works for their highest and greatest good.

How can Reiki help my pet?

Pets, like us, can become ill, have accidents, become stressed, anxious, nervous and a multitude of other afflictions from the World we live in. They are also energy just like you and I, so they too can have their energy blocked. That feeling of being low, no energy, easily stressed, takes too long to recover from the slightest cold. We’ve all been there. Sometimes we need that extra boost of energy, the feeling blocked to be released and even a good night’s sleep. Our pets are no different and listed below are just a few of the ways that Reiki could help. I say could because nothing in life is guaranteed and Reiki should never be viewed as a cure, but as helping the body’s natural self healing.

We take our beloved animals to the veterinarian for a check up and diagnosis. Being diagnosed by a Veterinarian is always the first port of call. Reiki works alongside traditional medical veterinarian care and supports this healing process.

“Helping animals one paw at a time”

Hello! I’m Wendy

Reiki Master Teacher

I‘ve always had an affinity with animals, even from a young age I’d sit with my cat at his food dish when he wouldn’t eat. Just talking to him about why he needed to eat. You could say that was my first foray into animal healing.

Animals are wonderful, sensitive, emotional, sentient beings. They deserve our respect and love, and also healing. This is why I decided when I attuned to Reiki, that my path would be an Animal Reiki practice, so Reiki Animal Healer was created.

To be the best I can be in helping animals, it’s not just about being a Reiki Master, it’s also about having a good knowledge of animals and their welfare. This is why I continually study and my qualifications so far include Canine Anatomy and Physiology, Canine First Aid, Senior Dog Care and Feline Psychology, with many more to come.

“After my 6 year old rottweiler Bee ruptured her back cruciate ligament I contacted wendy and she did reiki from a distance for Bee as I was very worried about her recovering from surgery with her being such a lively dog, but she recovered from the surgery and to the vets amazement she had no swelling at all throughout her 8 week recovery and now you have to look closely for a slight limp, I didn’t expect Bee to ever be back to normal but she is doing fine and I would recommend Wendy for her reiki, I don’t think Bee would have got through it without the reiki sessions”

“Amazingly, I felt a peacefulness and hope that I hadn’t experienced before. I believe either Rudy’s treatment was extending to me or Wendy was attending both of us. Rudy is still on meds but his vets & I are amazed at his recovery. He is back to being the same wonderful, loving, funny dog again thanks to Wendy.”

“My dog was in extreme pain following surgery. He hadn’t slept properly and was waking several times through the night as he couldn’t get comfortable! Some distance reiki and he slept through the night, was moving better than he has done and is happier within himself. Wendy is also amazing to deal with! She is kind, and easy to speak to. She also loves and cares for your pet and is understanding of their needs! To say I’m happy is an understatement. I’m delighted, my boy is happy and it’s nice to see his smile again! “
