Reiki is the name given to a system of natural healing which evolved in Japan from the experience and dedication of Dr Mikao Usui (d. 1926). Fired by a burning question, Dr Usui was inspired to develop this healing system from ancient teachings after many years of study, research and meditation.
Reiki flows to the areas of need, soothing pain and supporting the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Reiki restores balance in one’s life.
All animals, whether they be pets, farm, utility or wild, benefit from the healing powers of Reiki which works on the whole animal to restore the body’s natural balance by flowing directly to the source of any imbalance. It helps heal on a mental, physical and emotional level, hence maintaining your animal’s health and allowing them to be happy, peaceful, relaxed, healthy, calm and stress free.
Reiki reduces stress and induces deep relaxation. It can aid healing after surgery, following an illness and is very good for ageing animals. It is also an extremely powerful tool for emotional healing following trauma, abuse and neglect, and it helps with fear and trust issues.
It complements both conventional and complementary therapies and can enhance their actions and lessen any side effects. It is gentle, painless, non invasive and stress free.
Reiki is totally safe and it can be given at a distance or “hands on” depending on the animal. It can be adapted to any problem that affects animals. With Reiki, animals do not have to be confined or restrained to be treated. The animal retains a large degree of control over how much Reiki it will take.
On of the aspects of Reiki which is scientifically proven is that it releases endorphins into the body. Endorphins are our (and our animal’s) natural opiates which act as pain relief and give us a “feel good” factor. Releasing endorphins into our system can
- strengthen our immune system
- decrease the intensity and awareness of physical pain
- activate the emotions that are vital to maintain good health
- muliply the benefits to our body’s systems provided by stress relief.
