A healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient’s body and restore physical and emotional well-being.
Reiki, a word of Japanese origin, literally means ‘universal life energy’.
Reiki is a totally safe and non-invasive therapy that can be given at a distance or "hands on" depending on the animal (the animal chooses every time). It can be adapted to almost any problem that affects animals. It is gentle, painless and stress-free.
With Reiki, animals do not have to be confined or restrained to recieve their treatment. The animal retains a large degree of control over how much Reiki he/she will take and under what circumstances.
He/she will generally respond very well and become a willing partner in the healing process.
If your pet is ill, please see a vet
as soon as possible.
It in a non-medical therapy that complements and supports veterinary treatment, and is a valuable part of a combined approach to healing and health maintenance.
What Is Reiki?
One of the aspects of Reiki (scientifically proven) is that it releases endorphins into the body. Endorphins are our (and our animal's) natural opiates that act as pain relief and give us a feel-good factor.
Releasing endorphins into our system could:
a) strengthen our immune system
b) diminish the intensity and awareness of physical pain
c) activate the emotions that are vital to maintenance of well-being
d) induce deep relaxation, releasing tension
Reiki can help post-surgery or illness, help with anxiety, depression and trauma following accident or abuse and most emotional, mental and physical difficulties. Please contact me to discuss any queries you may have.
Animals can be treated in the comfort of their own home within a 10 mile radius of Coulsdon, Surrey. If you live further away, distant healing (which is equally as effective) can be given. A photograph of your pet would be required, either electronically or by post. The energy of Reiki can travel wherever directed by a qualified practitioner.
