What is Reiki?
Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a holistic healing art for stress reduction, relaxation, and spiritual growth. It was discovered by Dr. Mikao Usui in the early 1900’s. Reiki is a very simple yet powerful technique that can be learned and used by anyone.
The word “Reiki” comes from two Japanese words, Rei and Ki. The word Rei as it is used in Reiki is interpreted to mean higher spiritual consciousness. The word Ki means the same as Chi in Chinese, Prana in Sanskrit, and Ti or Ki in Hawaiian. Ki is life energy, the universal life force. This is the non-physical energy that animates all living things. Healthy Ki nourishes our physical body, and helps to balance our mental and emotional energy. Many people also find that Reiki is a form of Divine healing love which helps them deepen their awareness of their innate spirituality.
Reiki can also be used with animals, and animals tend to love it. Reiki can help animals in the same ways it helps humans: to balance and nourish the physical body, and to balance mental and emotional energy. Reiki is particularly effective in helping animals who have been traumatized, or who are experiencing physical or behavioral difficulties. Reiki in combination with telepathic animal communication can assist animals in very powerful ways.
How is a Reiki Treatment Given?
Reiki may be shared in-person (either through laying on hands or in the energy field off the body) or long distance (by a Reiki practitioner attuned to Level 2 Reiki). I provide both in-person and distance Reiki sessions for people and animals.
In a Human Reiki Session, the client is fully clothed usually on a Reiki table or in an armless, straight-backed chair. The normal time for a full treatment is 60 minutes. Reiki treatments involve the placing of the practitioner's hands on (or just off) the recipient's body in a series of positions designed to facilitate and encourage relaxation and the flow of healing energy. The treatment should be done in a quiet environment with no distractions. A one-hour treatment can be helpful for a specific issue or for general relaxation. The number of treatments and frequency is tailored to the individual client's needs and condition.

In an Animal Reiki Session, Reiki is offered to the animal, and the animal chooses how and if they wish to receive it. The animal is allowed to move around freely, and to choose whether or not they wish to accept the Reiki energy on or off of their body. Often, an animal will respond to the Reiki energy by relaxing, licking, chewing, yawning, or laying down. The Reiki practitioner will stay in the Reiki energy for the allotted amount of time, during which the animal may come and go as they please. When the time is ended, the practitioner ends the session and thanks the animal.
Distant Reiki Sessions:
Distant Reiki is very effective, and many animals actually prefer it. The beauty of distant Reiki is that it can be offered to a person or animal in any location or in any situation. I often use Distant Reiki in my animal communication consultations, and offer Distant Reiki packages for people and animals with chronic issues.
Distant Reiki Sessions for Animals are scheduled independently; you do not need to be on the phone with me. I will offer the Reiki to your animal, and email you after the session or series of sessions with any relevant information.
Distant Reiki Sessions for People: These can be scheduled independently, or you can be on the phone with me while the session is occurring. Many people prefer to schedule the session at an appointed time, so that they can arrange to be quiet, relax, and receive the energy. I also include a short followup by phone, scheduled as part of the session.
Additional Information on Reiki for Animals
Telepathic communication, combined with Reiki healing, is a very powerful combination that can support animals in a variety of situations, including:
- Acute or Chronic Illness or Injury
- Resolution of past trauma
- Emotional or Behavioral Issues
- Family Changes
- End-of-Life and Transition
Although single Reiki treatments can have profound and lasting benefits, it’s been my experience and the experience of other Reiki professionals that ongoing, consistent Reiki treatments can provide maximum benefits over an extended period of time. Because of this, I offer Reiki Packages which can be combined with Animal Communication Consultations as an option for my clients who want more intensive, long-term energy healing for their animals.
We sometimes hear the statement “animals can’t tell us how they feel”, but, in fact, through telepathic communication, they can. The value of combining telepathic communication with the powerful healing energy of Reiki is that the animal can communicate their responses, feelings, and experiences to the Reiki treatments. This can be extremely valuable in designing a course of treatment that is most helpful for them.
