 Hands On Reiki for Animals


What happens during a Hands On Reiki session?

For hands on Reiki for Animals, I visit you at your home, stable, or wherever your animal companion is comfortable. To get the best from Reiki it is important for the animal to be in an environment that does not add any additional stress. Although the term is Hands On, this does not necessarily mean that I will place my hands on the animal. As with human Reiki some parts of the body the Reiki Practitioner holds their hands slightly above without touching to send the Reiki. This can also happen during Animal Reiki sessions. Some animals may not wish to be touched or even be to close, as for some the Reiki energy can be a little too intense or confusing for them. Although, Reiki itself is gentle and non-invasive, a tingling or warm feeling that can sometimes be felt. The Reiki will still go to the animal in the same way as if the Practitioner has their hands on the animal. The term Hands On refers to being in the presence of the animal unlike Distance Reiki where it can be sent from anywhere in the World.


Does Hands On Reiki work better than Distance Reiki?

They both work equally well and provide the same benefits. Hands On may produce a faster response, but I haven’t noticed any differences between the two. I would decide which would be better based on what is in the best interests of the animal. Are they comfortable around new people? Would they be nervous? You may also not be local to the areas I cover for Hands On and still want me to send Reiki to your animal companion, then Distance Reiki would be an option.


What happens when I book a Reiki Session?

I will contact you to go through details about your animal companion and how Reiki could help; and arrange a time to visit. When I arrive I will spend a few minutes allowing your animal to get used to me before the session begins and also going through any questions you have before and after the Reiki session. This is why the session is for 1 hour. Email communication will be ongoing between sessions for any questions that you may have and to update me on your animal companion’s progress.

Important Legal Information

The Veterinary Surgery Act 1966 prohibits anyone other than a qualified veterinary surgeon from treating animals, including diagnosis of ailments and giving advice on such diagnosis. However the healing of animals by contact healing, by the laying on of hands and distant healing is legal. The Protection of Animals Act 1911 requires that if an animal clearly needs treatment from a veterinary surgeon the owner must obtain this. To give emergency first aid to animals for the purpose of saving life or relieving pain is permissible under the Veterinary Surgeons Act 1996 Schedule 3.  Source: UK Reiki Federation
