I offer alternative health services for your pets. I am a Reiki Practitioner specializing in energy healing.
By finding balance on many different levels, Reiki gives energy to the animal so that they can heal faster by working on the true cause of the problem. Addressing the animal as a whole being not only the symptom. Reiki helps to heal physical issues by speeding up the healing process, alleviating the symptoms of pain, and helping the body regain its energy. Reiki helps balance out emotions by helping the animals to overcome their reactions so that their behaviors can change. Reiki helps to heal the spirit by bringing animals back into a state of trust and connection.
Reiki for animals and animal healing
All animals can be helped with Reiki healing. Sharing Reiki with animals is an effective way of assisting them with physical, emotional and behavioral problems. It is a gentle yet effective way of animal healing and understanding.
If our own awareness was as loving as the horse or the loyal dog, maybe we could fulfill the true evolution of mankind- that of the heart!
The modern day domestic animal has a lot to contend with. Finding their natural ground in what can be an unnatural environment for their species.
The pressure of finding this balance can sometimes be too much, affecting the animal on a number of different levels, causing behavioral and physical problems.
Animals respond quickly to the ease that Reiki produces on these levels. Often harmonizing seemingly difficult or impossible attitudes and conditions.
I am not a veterinarian; I can not diagnose medical issues, offer medical advice, prescribe drugs, or perform surgery.
Reiki is healing, not medicine, and should never be used in
place of veterinary care. If your pet is ill or injured, call your veterinarian
