General wellness: Reiki energy can help keep you and your animals healthy and strong, restoring balance and boosting immune systems. It can remove energy blocks that could later result in health issues if left unaddressed. Additionally, Reiki makes animals and people feel calm and immediately soothes them.
Healing from illness or surgery: Reiki aids in the healing process. People and animals can recover more quickly from illness or surgery with a series of Reiki treatments. Specific to my ability to communicate with animals, I am able to give their guardians a better idea of what they are feeling and what kind of assistance they need in their recovery.
When there has been trauma: Reiki can help people and animals that have experienced any type of trauma, whether it is physical or emotional trauma. Energy from those unpleasant experiences can get stuck in our bodies. That energy can ultimately manifest itself in a variety of health and behavioral issues. I work with animals and humans to help them release the old energy and often see immediate changes in health and wellness.
Advanced age: Reiki can be used to assist animals and humans with issues that come with aging. It can work wonders on sore muscles, arthritis and a myriad of other ailments that we deal with as we get older. It won't turn back the clock, but it will definitely help you and your animal feel better and might give everyone a pep in their step.
End of life: When the time comes, Reiki can help an animal (and humans) feel more calm and at peace as they near the end and ultimately transition out of their bodies. Most of the work I do at "End of Life" is with animals and I find that in addition to the energy, one of the greatest benefits of a session is opening the lined of communication between the animal and the guardian. It is a scary and emotional time for us humans and the communication at that stage often feels even more important than at any other time.
What is it like to experience Reiki?:
nutshell, I believe Reiki gets the energy in our bodies moving. And why
is that important? Because when energy is "stuck," we can end up
developing health issues, we can feel stagnant in our lives, our immune
system can be suppressed, as well as a myriad of other things that are
not good for us, our health or our well-being. If energy is flowing
freely and easily in our bodies, we feel free and our bodies are able to
do what they are designed to do . . . heal themselves. Reiki supports
the body and assists it in being emotionally, physically, mentally and
People usually feel very peaceful after a Reiki treatment.
They are relaxed, more grounded, less 'in their head' and calmer.
Since Reiki can heal on all levels (physical, emotional, mental,
spritual), the experiences that people have can vary from person to
person and from session to session.
After a Reiki treatment, some
people feel so relaxed they just want to crawl into bed and take a nice
long nap. Others feel energized and feel moved to get to work on something
that they want to accomplish. Sometimes people cry during or at the end
of a treatment, as they release an old hurt they were holding onto.
Many people report aches and pains being gone by the
end of a treatment. Others report feeling more relaxed about things
that were causing them stress, and sometimes people get up from a
treatment with insight about how to fix a problem they have been
There is no "right" way to respond to Reiki. It
is healing energy. It goes to where our bodies need it most and
addresses that which needs to be healed most on that particular day.
