There are many ways Reiki healing can be given. Personal hands on healing and Distant healing – either through Distant Full Reiki treatment or Distant intention healing.
The Japanese healing method 'Reiki' is a loving and nurturing energy and can be given to animals through hands on healing. Animals respond well to Reiki for a small amount of time, some can get more energised whilst others calm and peaceful. A mix of hands on and distant reiki works well for animals, especially those who don’t enjoy being handled.
With a meditative style approach Reiki provides a safe healing. The treatment for animals tends to be shorter and they may only require 10-20 minutes due to the heat produced during a Reiki session. Placement of hands like for ourselves can be used for injury, trauma healing, emotional healing on the animal.
