Reiki is the Hands-on Healing of our Life Force Energy.
Reiki is a Japanese technique using gentle hands-on ("laying on hands") healing method. Reiki is the channeling of Universal Energy (Life Force) for the purposes of healing. The practice is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress. When the "life force energy" is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
Reiki heals on all levels.
Spirit Animal Massage practices Reiki on both people and animals: dogs, cats, small pets and horses. Reiki will not cause stress or pain, but provides effective results. It heals at all levels--physical, emotional, mental and spiritual--and can be used for any issue you or your pet may have.

All animals recognize and appreciate Reiki's ability to heal. Many learn to seek it out on their own. Oftentimes, animals respond more quickly to Reiki than people and positive results are usually immediate. For your healthy animal, Reiki treatments help maintain a balanced, healthy state, and enhances overall well-being. For your sick pet, Reiki helps heal at the deepest levels and is a safe complement to Western medicine.

For the individual, Reiki helps support a balanced and harmonious well-being. Whether you are suffering from physical stress like back pain or an emotional condition from grief, Reiki is a gentle, nurturing way to bring your life force energy back into a higher, more balanced state. It is a natural method that helps accelerate healing, release blockages, and cleanse your mind, body and spirit from bad toxins.
Reiki can be a source of comfort and transition.
Reiki can also be used as a form of hospice for terminally ill pets by providing comfort, easing pain, reducing fear and anxiety, and helping them transition peacefully from this life. As an owner, Reiki can also help you find peace and healing during the difficult time of caring for a pet in hospice.

Reiki is also helpful in releasing your pet's emotions from the negative effects of trauma, neglect, abuse, or injury. It can also help speed up the recovery process from an injury as a complement to your regular veterinary treatment.

For the individual, Reiki restores energy balance and vitality by relieving the physical and emotional effects of unreleased stress. If you’ve been considering changing careers, needing more energy on the job, or transitioning from a major life change, Reiki can help unblock any physical, emotional, mental or spiritual obstacles on your path.
How Reiki is Practiced
Reiki sessions can be done either in person or sent from a distance. Reiki is not limited by time and place, so healings can be sent without the client being present.

For Distant Reiki on pets, creating a relaxed setting for your animal will be important. Before the session, you will be asked to send a picture of your animal (via email is accepted) and a list of anything you would like Spirit Animal Massage to concentrate on.

For Distant Reiki on people, the client will be asked to sit or lie down for a half hour while Spirit Animal Massage sends them Reiki. Please note that Reiki is never a replacement for traditional medicine. Always consult your physician or other health care professional before starting this program to determine if it is right for your needs.
