I'm pleased to announce I am now a fully qualified reiki level 2 practitioner! If you're not aware of what reiki is, then please read on because it is well worth it – especially for your dog and other pets.
There are several therapies that work alongside veterinary advice and one of them is reiki. Used primarily for people's health, it can also be used to help dogs and other animals on many levels.
Essentially reiki is a traditional Japanese energy system that works by bringing the animal back into alignment in a physical, emotional and spiritual state. When this is acheived they begin the healing process themselves.
Reiki for dogs can be done either hands-on or with hands just above the body, which is often the preferred method for animals as they can be unsure of physical contact from strangers, unless of course the hands are moving!
I have been training in reiki for a while now and having acheived level 2 I can now be called a practitioner and work with clients and their dogs. It also means I can get insured and I use Balens insurance in Malvern for that.
So how can reiki help your dog?You may have heard of 'chi' energy or the meridiens in chinese practices. Reiki is the same thing and it is this universal energy that we are working with to balance again. By sending fresh 'ki' to the animal we can balance any depleted energy fields that might reflect in physical or emotional conditions.
It sounds crazy but it really does work really well. Of course it won't cure everything but it works particularly well if your dog has anxiety, stress, fear or sadness. It can also help with physical injuries and is a wonderful way to release stress and help them relax.
Sometimes a dog will have a major transformation after only one session – othertimes it may take several reiki sessions for your dog to fully get over their problem. I'm currently offering reiki sessions for half price for the first session so you can see how well it works. I'd love to help your dog, whether walking or with a reiki session so please get in touch to discuss.
Dog walking is only available in Fladbury village from me but for reiki sessions I can travel further afield, so if you feel your dog, cat, horse or other pet could benefit from a reiki session I'd love to hear from you!
