Is Reiki Therapy Beneficial for Animals?

Updated: 6 days ago

Can Reiki be used with animals?

Reiki is an ideal complimentary therapy for animals of all varieties as it is safe, gentle and non invasive. The practice of Reiki originated in Japan and it is now a well known and effective energy healing technique which promotes a deep sense of relaxation and encourages healing on all levels. In the UK, the popularity of this approach has surged as pet owners increasingly seek ways to enhance the lives of their animal companions. It is a beneficial therapy for both humans and animals alike.

Animals are our friends and companions and bring much happiness into our lives and deserve the best care from us. Sometimes, like us, they need a little help when things are tough. Reiki can help re-balance their energies and remove blockages to allow them heal, particularly after an illness, injury or stressful life event such as being abandoned, losing a family member or changing home. Emotional trauma can affect the whole system and often manifests in illness.

What are the benefits of Reiki for animals?

Our furry/feathered friends are very sensitive to Reiki energy and can benefit greatly from a course of Reiki treatments in many ways:-

  • It is relaxing and calming for anxious or stressed animals and can help reduce nervous tendencies.

  • It can help boosts the animals natural healing response, particularly after illness or an operation.

  • It complements and supports veterinary care.

  • It can increase energy levels and promotes overall well-being.

  • Reiki always works for the animal’s highest good and can do no harm.

  • The animal chooses whether or not to accept Reiki and for how long.

  • It provides compassion and support for older or dying animals and can make their transition easier for all concerned.

If you feel your animal companion, no matter how big or small, needs a little extra healing help then it is worth considering Reiki therapy. Reiki is a very gentle and safe for your pets of all shapes and sizes but it is always advised that you firstly contact your animal's own vet in the first instance if you have any concerns regarding their health and well-being before embarking on a Reiki treatment.

Animal Reiki is becoming an integral part of holistic pet care in the UK. It offers a compassionate and non-invasive approach to promoting the well-being of our cherished animal companions. As the interest in alternative therapies continues to flourish, Animal Reiki stands out as a beacon of positive energy, nurturing the happiness and health of our furry friends across the United Kingdom.
