Animal Reiki goes beyond traditional human Reiki techniques. Our animal companions communicate and perceive the world differently, primarily through a heightened sensitivity to energy. They’ve relied on this intuitive understanding to distinguish between friends and foes, making them remarkably receptive to the calming energy of Reiki.
Similar to its effects on humans, Reiki can provide relief for animals dealing with physical, mental, or emotional challenges. This holistic therapy can be especially beneficial for pets struggling with behavioural issues rooted in their emotional well-being.
When we think of Reiki, we often envision soothing sessions on a massage table for humans, where practitioners lay their hands on different areas of the body, creating an hour-long healing experience. The session culminates with a sweeping motion to release surplus energy, a therapeutic ritual.
Yet, when it comes to our cherished canine companions, Reiki takes on a whole new dimension. Dogs are not prone to climbing onto massage tables, nor do they willingly recline for a lengthy session. Instead, they may opt for a unique approach: experiencing Reiki from a distance at first, leaving physical contact until they are ready.
The process begins with the practitioner seated on the floor, establishing a harmonious environment where the dog can decide how actively they want to participate. Dogs are given the freedom to choose the dosage of Reiki that feels right for them. This empowers them to control their healing journey, ensuring their comfort is paramount.
Unlike humans, dogs communicate their needs without words. When a dog willingly approaches the practitioner, it’s a clear sign they are open to receiving Reiki. The practitioner places their hands in positions that align with the dog’s energy, creating a profound connection between the healing source and the recipient.
The remarkable distinction? No timer is needed to signal the session’s end. Dogs possess an innate sense of knowing when they’ve absorbed the ideal amount of healing energy. They simply get up and continue with their day, seamlessly blending their newfound vitality into their lives.
