Reiki for Animals and People

The Reiki Ideals

Just for today, do not be angry
Do not worry, and be filled with gratitude
Devote yourself to your work and be kind to people
Every morning and evening join your hands in prayer…
Usui Mikao

What is Reiki?

Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a holistic healing art for stress reduction, relaxation, and spiritual growthReiki is a very simple yet powerful technique that can be learned and used by anyone.

The word “Reiki” comes from two Japanese words, Rei and Ki. The word Rei as it is used in Reiki is interpreted to mean higher spiritual consciousness. The word Ki means the same as Chi in Chinese, Prana in Sanskrit, and Ti or Ki in Hawaiian. Ki is life energy, the universal life force. This is the non-physical energy that animates all living things. Healthy Ki nourishes our physical body, and helps to balance our mental and emotional energy. Many people also find that Reiki is a form of Divine healing love which helps them deepen their awareness of their innate spirituality.

Reiki can also be used with animals, and animals tend to love it. Reiki can help animals in the same ways it helps humans: to balance and nourish the physical body, and to balance mental and emotional energy. Reiki is particularly effective in helping animals who have been traumatized, or who are experiencing physical or behavioral difficulties. Reiki in combination with telepathic animal communication can assist animals in very powerful ways.

How Is a Reiki Treatment Given?

Reiki may be shared in-person (either through laying on hands or in the energy field off the body) or over a distance (by a Reiki practitioner attuned to Level 2 Reiki). I provide both in-person and distance Reiki sessions for people and animals.

Hands-On/In-Person Sessions:

Reiki for People: In a human Reiki session, the client is fully clothed usually on a Reiki table or in an armless, straight-backed chair. The normal time for a full treatment is 60 minutes. Reiki treatments involve the placing of the practitioner’s hands on (or just off) the recipient’s body in a series of positions designed to facilitate and encourage relaxation and the flow of healing energy. The treatment should be done in a quiet environment with no distractions. A one-hour treatment can be helpful for a specific issue or for general relaxation. The number of treatments and frequency is tailored to the individual client’s needs and condition.

Reiki for Animals: In an animal Reiki session, Reiki is offered to the animal, and the animal chooses how and if they wish to receive it. The animal is allowed to move around freely, and to choose whether or not they wish to accept the Reiki energy on or off of their body. Often, an animal will respond to the Reiki energy by relaxing, licking, chewing, yawning, or lying down. The Reiki practitioner will stay in the Reiki energy for the allotted amount of time, during which the animal may come and go as they please. When the time is ended, the practitioner ends the session.

Distant Reiki Sessions:
Distant Reiki is very effective, and many animals actually prefer it. The beauty of distant Reiki is that it can be offered to a person or animal in any location or in any situation. I often use Distant Reiki in my animal communication consultations, and offer Distant Reiki packages for people and animals with chronic issues.

Distant Reiki sessions for animals are scheduled independently; you do not need to be on the phone with me. I will offer the Reiki to your animal, and email you after the session or series of sessions with any relevant information.

Distant Reiki sessions for people can be scheduled independently, or you can be on the phone with me while the session is occurring. Many people prefer to schedule the session at an appointed time, so that they can arrange to be quiet, relax, and receive the energy. I also include a short follow-up by phone or Skype, scheduled as part of the session.


Reiki Sessions

I highly recommend that people learn Reiki for themselves. This way, they can use Reiki for themselves, their families, and their animals anytime they wish. See the Reiki Academy for more information.

Reiki Sessions and Packages

Distant Reiki for Animals

Animals tend to receive Reiki quickly, so you will notice that animal Reiki sessions and packages are shorter than the sessions for people.

Both single sessions and discounted packages are available. E-mail followup at the end of each session is included.

Distant Reiki for Animals
Distant Reiki for People

Single sessions and discounted packages are available. E-mail followup at the end of each session is included.

Please note that Reiki supports, but is not a substitute for, medical or veterinary care. Please consult with your medical or veterinary professional for any health concerns.

Distant Reiki for People
Animal Communication and Reiki Packages

There are times when it can be very beneficial to have a series of consultations and/or Reiki sessions, allowing for more in-depth work and continuity when working with issues such as:

  • Long-term or chronic health or emotional issues
  • End-of-life process
  • Deepening your relationship; exploration of spiritual growth and transformation with your animal friend

These sessions may include telepathic communication and Reiki and other energy healing, and will be tailored to the needs of the animal and human clients.I offer discounted rates for these packages. Go to the Schedule a Consultation page, and click on View Products/Packages on the scheduler for details.

In-Person Reiki Sessions

In-person Reiki may be scheduled for people and animals as part of an animal communication consultation, personal session, or included in retreats and intensives.

Please contact me for additional information about in-person Reiki for people and animals.
