Animal Reiki Classes

Animal Reiki classes are for anyone who wants to make a connection with animals.

In truth, Reiki is for everyone. It is easy to learn and enhances your life on many levels. Using Reiki on your animal companions invites well-being and strengthens your bond with one another.

When you take Animal Reiki classes you aren’t just giving a gift to your animal companions - you’re doing it for yourself and the people in your life too. In addition to receiving all of the attunements that are taught in a traditional Reiki class, you will learn how to address the needs and anatomy of companion animals.

Reiki Master Teacher Susan J. Squittieri has over 10 years of experience training individuals who wish to use Reiki for personal growth and wellness, to assist family and friends, and to heal the animals they love and care for.

Group or Private Instructions: Susan offers Animal Reiki classes in groups and private instruction in Nyack, NY or at your home, barn, stable, or place of business in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.

Susan is very passionate about teaching Animal Reiki classes and creates a supportive and nurturing environment for you to learn in.
