The word “Reiki” is derived from the Japanese terms “higher power” and “life force energy,” and was popularized in the early 20th century in Japan. It’s used in human circles for spiritual healing, stress relief, and self improvement-but what about Reiki for dogs? Can it help canine conditions, and what do you need to know to get started?
REIKI (pronounced Ray-key) is a Japanese word meaning “Universal Energy,” the vital, creative force that flows through everything. Reiki is the use of energy to heal and can help remove blockages, balance energy and help identify physical pain. Reiki healing stimulates the energy to flow properly, while also cleansing the energy within and around the body to speed up the healing process. Performed remotely (distant healing), or in-person through touch, Reiki practitioners pass a higher frequency energy to their animal patients to assist them in healing themselves. Reiki is non-invasive and gentle, yet can help heal and energize an animal’s body on physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels. Read extra details on Pet Reiki.
Yes, it’s true. Giving your dog a massage is also good for you. Science has shown that petting animals actually improves the health of humans. It reduces stress, lowers blood pressure and elevates our moods. This is why so many pet owners tend to be happier people! This is also why therapy animals are so important – science has shown that petting animals greatly improves the mental and physical health of people, regardless of whether or not they want to admit it.
Using Reiki as a complimentary therapy at a veterinarian’s office is an excellent way to help ease the increased stress level your dog may experience while at the office. Reiki can also help your dog heal emotionally and physically from any treatments that may have to be performed once you return home. If your dog has had surgery, Reiki can help the overall healing process. I work with several veterinarians, both remotely and at animal hospitals, to assist dogs during the office visit and after the dog returns home. When I perform a Reiki session at a veterinarian’s office or off-site location, I will try to make the room as comfortable as possible. I dim the lights, provide a comfortable bed for them to lie in if they wish and maybe softly play meditation music. It is important that everyone is open to the energy healing and remain relaxed. This includes the dog, their human companion and me.
While it’s sometimes difficult to communicate within our own species, this client was hitting a wall when it came to understanding what her dog and cat were trying to tell her. “Gillian is great and really knows how to connect to my loves!! She hit it right on the nail how my dog Roxie and cat Gracie interact with each other, and told me things that just confirmed how I read my own animals. It really is great to hear what your animals have to say. Next time I am lost with what they need or want, I will definitely reach out to her for a reading.” Source: https://fourpawsholistictherapy.com/.
