Reiki is a hands on healing method that originated in Japan.
The word Reiki is a Japanese composite word usually translated as "universal life energy". It is based on the idea that all living beings have life energy flowing through them. When life energy is high, your pets are healthy and balanced, more relaxed and less likely to get sick. When it is low, they will often be more easily affected by stress and less resistant to illness.
Cats are naturally receptive to the Reiki energy and tend to gravitate towards it readily.
Benefits of Reiki For Pets
Enhances overall well being. Just like people, even healthy pets can have occasional physical, emotional and mental imbalances that, if left untreated can manifest as illness.
Periodic Reiki treatments can help maintain your pet's natural state of well being and balance.
Strengthens the immune system for cancer therapies.
Cancer therapies such as chemotherapy and radiation present stress to an already compromised immune system.
Reiki strengthens the immune system to better deal with the additional stress. It helps alleviate or prevent the side effects of conventional cancer treatments and provides pain relief.
Increases trust and bonding between you and your pet.
People and pets often mirror each other's physical and emotional states.
Animals are natural healers and sometimes take on their person's problems, often in an attempt to heal them.
This happens because of the deep bond shared between a pet and his or her person.
Because of the shared energy in such a close relationship, energetic imbalances are shared as well.
For optimum healing, joint treatments for people and their pets can often be beneficial.
Can help with behavior issues by promoting relaxation and stress reduction.
Many behavior issues are caused by stress.
Reiki has a calming effect on the pet and may help make the pet more receptive to training and behavior modification.
Reiki is extremely beneficial for animals with a history of abuse.
The gentle and the energy can help restore trust in animals who have learned to associate touch with being hurt.
Provides comfort and relieves pain, anxiety and fear for terminally ill animals.
Reiki is a wonderful way to facilitate the transition for terminally ill animals and their owners.
Often animals will not allow themselves to transition because they intuitively feel that their person is not ready to let them go.
Joint Reiki treatments for the pet and his or her person can help both through this difficult time by enhancing the bond and allowing a gentle transition.
