Practice Reiki for Animals

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

In truth, Reiki is for everyone. 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 energetic anatomy of companion animals.

Reiki with Animal Reiki training 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.

You can use Reiki to improve your life and the lives of 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.

Classes are open to Individual Animal Lovers & Animal Care Professionals.

Susan offers classes in Animal Reiki in group and private instruction in Valley Cottage, NY or at your home, barn, stable, or place of business in the Tri-State- Area of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.

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

If you have an animal-based practice, clinic, or veterinarian hospital or are affiliated with an animal shelter or animal rescue group and would like to offer Animal Reiki training to your staff and volunteer members, please contact Susan for more information.

Learn to use the healing power of Reiki for yourself, your family, and the animals you love.

By learning how to use Reiki for humans and animals, you can support the body’s natural ability to heal itself at the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels.

She truly is amazing

I took Reiki I, II and III with Animal Reiki Training from Susan. I could have switched it up and taken a level with a different reiki master at any point, but I can’t imagine a kinder, more generous, knowledgeable teacher than Susan exists on the planet. She truly is amazing.
