Reiki for Animals

Reiki for companion animals can help in a variety of ways. 

  • Pain reduction
  • Ease from stress and anxiety
  • Reduce/eliminate behavior problems
  • Healing from injury/illness
  • Chronic medical condition
  • Ease from issues caused by neglect, abuse, trauma
  • Assist in the transition to death


Reiki is gentle and noninvasive for the animal.  The energy builds through consecutive treatments affording the animal greater benefit.  Just as for humans, Reiki does no harm and goes where it is needed.  Reiki for animals is different than for people because the practitioner allows the animal to approach.  Reiki is offered to the animal, not forced.  The animal controls whether there is touch.  Some animals guide the practitioner's hands, some do not want to be touched.  I use intention, focus, and inner thoughts to make an energy connection with the animal that allows the Reiki energy to flow.  The animal takes the lead in deciding how the Reiki session will proceed and the amount of energy they receive.  Reiki is most helpful if the first four sessions are close together as possible.  Sessions frequency can be spaced out after the initial four sessions to maintain the balance of energy. 


I will speak with you prior to the session with the animal to listen to your concerns.  When in the company of the animal, I try to keep the conversation positive for the animal's emotional well-being.  After the session I will provide you with feedback and sometimes suggestions. 


Distant Reiki for animals can be offered after the initial session to maintain the beneficial effects of Reiki energy.  It is helpful if you could provide me with a photo of the animal.  Reiki energy knows no limits and is always for the highest good.  I set an intention and connect with the animal across a distance offering Reiki energy to them as I would during an in-person session.
