Reiki/Energy Work for Animals

Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a Japanese meditation and therapeutic technique meaning “spirit (Rei) and universal life energy (ki).”

When used therapeutically, the practitioner acts as a channel for universal energy to come through to your pet and activate his/her own inner healing system.

Reiki can be practised directly with the animal present or remotely – even across countries using a photo or video.

Reiki is ideal for animals that are uncomfortable with hands-on or direct treatment as the practitioner’s hands can be lightly placed on the animal or placed above or at a distance from the animal’s body. Regardless, the energy flows to where it is needed.

The benefits of Reiki are numerous:

  • Heals at physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual levels
  • Remains gentle and non-invasive, but powerful
  • Can relieve symptoms and reduce pain
  • Accelerates healing of illnesses and injuries; speeds up healing after surgery
  • Reduces side-effects of drugs and other treatments
  • Improves behavioural issues and can heal anxiety-related ones
  • Provides well-being, relaxation and stress relief
  • Complements both conventional and alternative healing methods
  • Eases the transition to death when physical healing isn’t possible

Services provided by donation!

Why by donation? 

Our world is changing and I believe we are entering a time where the new currency is one of care, in tune with nature and our heart. I bring this concept into my work through the exchange of a donated amount for my time and energy. You are free to choose the amount that feels right to you knowing the minimum donation amount and the suggested amount provided. However,  I would never want finances to be a barrier to anyone receiving help for their animal companions. If this is the case for you, please reach out to me to discuss!
