The philosophy behind reiki is one of promoting healing, compassion and a sense of well-being. Often it has been used to heal humans, for example, those with special needs or physical injuries. Reiki is even administered in hospices for humans and animals alike. The principle involves the use of centuries old traditional symbols to open energy channels that may have become blocked and consequently lead to discomfort and illness. During the treatment, no physical touch is needed, only the practitioner’s energy healing techniques. Below are some answers to the most frequently asked questions regarding Reiki for animals.
Just in the same way as human to human reiki, your pet can benefit from animal reiki. All manner of centres that work with animals (and people) utilise the power of reiki on a daily basis to heal and promote wellness. Animal reiki can be used for any pet to reduce stress, relax nervous pets, heal emotional issues and provide comfort. Animal reiki can even be administered long-distance so you and your pet won’t be intruded upon.

The principle of reiki healing remains the same for humans or animals and depending on the receptiveness of the client, will promote healing.
