...Canine Reiki...

Reiki for dogs is as beautiful as Reiki for horses. Dogs cannot communicate in words how they feel or where they are sore but can communicate in actions and behaviors. They are sensitive to energy and therefore, once acquainted, accept a treatment willingly. They will guide us by turning their head, moving into a certain position or simply just cuddling up to you. Reiki is beautiful and can be added to any regular medical and healthcare routine. When animals receive Reiki, many owners report positive changes in their pets' well-being and behavior. It is frequently reported to relieve pain, stress, emotional disturbances, and many other body-energy imbalances and can help to relax, release, re-balance, re-energize and restore.

Reiki is a gentle and non-intrusive therapy that helps to bring the animal back to a place of natural balance. This healing system is safe and will never harm an animal. Animals are completely unbiased and feel the energies without prejudice.

One may even say that dogs love the quiet laying on of hands. They usually become so relaxed and fall asleep, simply enjoying the energy that flows in and through their body. This deep relaxation stimulates the self-healing powers and thus brings positive energy back to flow. In addition to pain treatments, both acute and chronic, Reiki aids the healing processes. Other times, the dog will become invigorated and energized during or after the session has concluded. Most dogs will welcome a Reiki session and stand in position to receive the healing whilst others may be restless. In this case we can do distance Reiki instead of a hands on session as well. The healing works on so many different levels, from physical to mental, emotional and spiritual. It can be beneficial for everything from illnesses to injuries. Behavioral problems can also be resolved. Healing can help speed up recovery from illness and injury as it allows the animal to heal itself on a deep, natural level.

A very popular practical use for Reiki is to assist with separation anxiety that a dog may experience when away from home, left at home or boarded away from their home.

Reiki can help with issues such as arthritis, colic, loss of appetite, physical injuries, reducing stress, relieving anxiety, aggression, nervousness, as well as improving your relationship with your loyal companion, helping the natural healing process and improving the overall quality of life for your dog and yourself. Arthritic, ill or dogs that are ready to pass over the rainbow love Reiki and even will begin to signal their owner that they are ready for another session. It does relieve pain and swelling, and can aid them to relax further. It can create a peaceful and calming environment.

In shelter dogs , which often show behavioral problems such as fear or aggressiveness, Reiki has also proven to help significantly. There is a lot of patience required here, because the fears are usually deep. With love, patience, education and Reiki one can reach these dogs and teach them positive touch.

Your loyal companion does not need to be ill or hurt to benefit from a session. Each dog will react in a way that the Reiki energy best suits them. Reiki will keep the dog’s energy field in a balanced condition and boost the immune system.

Please note that reiki does not replace veterinary care.

Reiki can be a beneficial tool in the healing process and overall well-being.
