Animal Specific Reiki Treatment Expectations.

The treatment usually begins a short distance away from the animal rather than with hands on healing. This helps to build up trust and gives the animal the opportunity to feel the healing energy. The animal decides how much Reiki they want. They will show signs when they are done.

Animals are more sensitive to energy than people and quickly understand the healing potential. During a treatment, the animal may move closer to the Reiki Healer or may choose to lie away from them. It is their choice and wherever they are they will still receive the benefit from Reiki Healing. This can also be done Long Distance, if the animal cannot be or does not want to be in the same room/area.

What are the benefits of Reiki? 

Because Reiki is healing energy, it will never harm you or your pet. 

It can be given to any type of human, animal, plant, geographical area or even a situation.

If there are emotional problems due to a traumatic situation such as abuse, neglect, new residence, gaining or losing a family member, etc, Reiki can help release and heal those emotions. Energizing and revitalizing an older animal is another benefit.

By soothing and calming highly strung, hyperactive or stressed animals.

By helping to alleviate lethargy and depression. 

By helping with transitions such as moving house, introduction to, or loss of, another pet.

By helping rescued animals adjust to their new surroundings and preparing them for a future in a stable family life

By providing comfort, relief from pain, fear or anxiety

For behavioral issues such as nervousness or hyperactivity, Reiki can help to relax and reduce their stress and anxiety.
If you or your pet is sick or injured, Reiki can help to heal more quickly. For facing a serious illness, Reiki can help bring comfort and be a great compliment to conventional treatment. Examples are by providing relief from the effects of arthritis, rheumatism and other debilitating conditions. by accelerating the healing of post surgical trauma, wounds, breaks and sprains. by delaying the onset and progression of certain diseases.

If your beloved family member, yourself or your pet is dying, Reiki can help bring peace and comfort during this difficult time. It helps to relax and accept so they are not afraid and struggling to stay a part of our lives.

Listening to animals. 

Animals differ in their responsiveness to Reiki depending on their illness, personality, and how well they know you. Here's how you can read an animal to determine how to administer Reiki:

An animal may screech, fly, growl, hiss, or run away as a way of telling you it doesn't want to be touched. In that case, you can use distant Reiki or beaming techniques.

An animal may let you perform hands-on Reiki but then shift positions or look at you funny. Move your hands a few inches above the body and continue Reiki, if you feel that it's still needed.

An animal may tell you it wants Reiki by coming near you when you are giving Reiki to yourself or someone else.

If you're in tune with an animal, it will move so you can give Reiki exactly where it's needed.

Finding the right pet practitioner.

If your pet can travel, you can take him to a Reiki clinic. You may find that a pet trainer, pet groomer, or breeder also offers Reiki services. Here are some suggestions for finding a Reiki practitioner for your animal friend:

·         Any Reiki practitioner can give Reiki to your pet, although some practitioners specialize in giving Reiki to animals.

·         Animal lovers who work as animal handlers or in veterinarian's offices are taking Reiki training so they can use Reiki in their work. Some Reiki practitioners specialize in treating animals or even a particular type of animal. Even some shelters have Reiki for the pets.

·         In some cities, you may find Reiki clinics for pets! Obviously, you need to have an animal who can travel and behave among other animals.

·         You can learn Reiki yourself so you can help no matter where you are.
