How Animal Reiki Works
Animal reiki works in the same way as it does on people, using non-intrusive hands-on positions that are performed without pressure or manipulation. Energy flows through the body of a animal in good health much like an electric current. However, a number of factors can interfere with this flow. Among them are physical injuries, trauma, dietary changes, emotional problems, training issues or a combination of these problems. Any blockage of energy can result in physical, psychological or behavioral problems. Reiki balances the natural energy flow throughout the body and brings about noticeable change in the animal and allows them to relax and settle.
During the healing process, endorphins are released into their system, enabling the animal to feel relaxed and calm.
Reiki will not cure illness or disease but will help in speeding up the horse’s natural healing process helping the body to heal itself.
Benefits of Animal Reiki
Reiki can help with a range of problems from behavioral to emotional, I believe that its is of the same importance to heal an animal emotionally as it is to physically. Reiki can help with nervousness, past abuse and fear based emotion. It helps release and heal emotion and reduce stress and anxiety.
Reiki is extremely useful in conjunction with traditional veterinary care. It helps horses recover faster, saving owners anxiety and cost. Veterinarians trained in this type of healing have found it useful in treating travel stress and digestive problems, as well as settling mares who are new mothers.
If your animal is bereaved at the loss of a companion Reiki can also help to bring peace and comfort to your animal and relax them and ease fear.
