Reiki for your Pet by Tamara Fosty
Posted: Jul 21 2014
Pet Reiki is becoming more and more popular as people look for more alternative options for their pets!
A Japanese technique, Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) is a holistic, energy-based method of healing that can assist the body to release toxins, stress and emotional blockages encouraging relaxation which in turn promotes healing. It helps the body shift back into balance, allowing it to heal from the inside out.
Rei - a universal energy
Ki - life force energy that flows through all living things
One of the most wonderful things about Reiki is that it can be done in person or from a distance, so no matter where you are, your pet can participate in a Reiki session.
What happens during a Reiki session with my pet?
During a Reiki session, your pet will be in total control of how they choose to accept the Reiki. Some pets prefer to receive Reiki from a distance while some like hands on treatment. Whichever method your choose, your pet is sure to benefit from the session. Animals often become very relaxed during or after their Reiki session. Often you will notice them yawning, laying down or falling asleep while receiving Reiki energy! This allows them to enter a deep state of relaxation where their body can begin to repair, strengthen and recover from illness and stress.

Length and frequency of Reiki sessions for my pet...
The length of sessions depends entirely on your pet and how much Reiki energy they choose to receive. Each animal knows what's right for them. Generally a Reiki session will last between 30 to 60 minutes. The frequency of sessions depends on your pet's health status and needs. Generally improvements can be seen after the first session, but to see a long-term impact, 2 to 6 sessions may be required.
