Hands-off Reiki treament.

An energetic terrier receiving a 30 minute hands-off Reiki treatment. Oops was that me snoring?

Reiki is an ancient Tibetan method of natural healing which channels universal life force energy, known as Reiki energy, through the attuned Reiki practioner to the recipient either human, animal, plant, food or objects. Reiki is a safe and non-invasive method that encourages healing and well being, wholeness of mind, body and spirit.

“Rei” means a higher power; “ki” is life force energy ~ Spiritually guided life force energy.

This life force energy is all around us and radiates from all livings things. You can’t see it, but you can feel it. It’s what keeps the body alive and affects physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well being. Energy, (ki), also radiates from Mother Earth, the sun, the moon, and the stars.

Dogs and other animals are very open and sensitive to Reiki energy. They know exactly how much they need and where they need it. Your dog will tell the Reiki practioner when a session is over as they will break off the contact, try to leave or get restless.

If your dog needs more, they will ask for it by sitting close, laying down and/or sleeping or moving an area of their body close to the Reiki practioner’s hands. Reiki is very helpful in calming and de-stressing animals.

Reiki can be used alone or in conjunction with other types of healing and medical practices.
