What Is Reiki for Animals?
Reiki for animals is just like Reiki for humans. The practitioner uses a techinque which involves the hands hovering over the body, light touch or at times distance to assist in directing life force energy to where it is needed most.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that "life force energy" flows through all things. If one's "life force energy" is low or blocked, then we are more susceptible to illness and stress. When the “life force energy” is high and flowing properly, we are able to enjoy health and general well being.
What Does This Mean?
It means that the Reiki Practicioner has been trained and has been certified in the use of certain hand positions and sacred ancient symbols, that are meant to promote relaxation and a state of wellbeing for the person or animal recieving.
The practitioner is a conduit, which means they transmit energy from a universal source to where it is needed by the recipient. They do not create the energy or direct it. It is believed that Reiki promotes the body's ability to heal itself and it supports other treatment programs.
Reiki results in an overall relaxation response. That causes a deeper healing on an emotional and spiritual level.
Animals expirirnce emotions and can remember trauma just like people do.
Benefits of Reiki for Animals:
Assists in easing strong emotional responses.
Reduces stress and anxiety.
It assists in providing space for healing.
It assists in the dying process by brininging peace and comfort to the animal.
Reiki sessions are not forced onto the animals and can be as long or as short as they allow. Sometimes there is a process in which the animal needs to become comfortable with the energy before they can continue,or it is started at a distance and in time the practritioner lays their hands on the animal.
Reiki is great when used in addition to regular vetinary care or other holistic health care plans.
