Reiki by Jean – For animals and people
What is Reiki?
“Reiki” (ray-key) is a simple, yet powerful relaxation and stress management technique. It is Japanese in origin, founded in early 1900s by Mikao Usui. “Rei” meaning spirit and “ki” means energy, translated as “universal life energy.” Since all things are made up of energy, all things consist of Reiki.
Why is Reiki Ideal for Animals?
Reiki is safe, gentle, stress-free. There need be no physical contact and Reiki treats the entire person and/or animal, including physical, mental, emotional, spiritual levels simultaneously.
Due to its noninvasive, painless nature, Reiki is a natural healing method for all, especially our pets, as animals are extremely sensitive to energy.
Reiki can help animals with issues such as:
Side effects of medication
End of life transitioning
We live in a world of energy that nourishes and maintains all living things.
When this energy flows uninterrupted, there is balance and harmony within and around us, and we experience a sense of well-being.
When it does not, you may experience a “blockage” (clogging up or stoppage) of energy flow. (This blockage may manifest itself as stress, headache, pain, etc.)
There are many variations of Reiki, but, in essence, Reiki can help the body emotionally and/or spiritually. It is a tradition that is open to any belief system.
Reiki is practiced throughout the world, including at over 800 American hospitals and medical centers in the U.S. and works as a complimentary practice to help patients relax before or after rehabilitation treatments.
Traditionally, Reiki was available only to humans, but increasing numbers of practitioners have begun offering Reiki to animals.
