Animal Reiki

Why Choose Reiki Energy Medicine for Your Companion Animal?

Animal Reiki

Animal Reiki is a gentle, non-invasive energy balancing technique that can benefit any animal. It is safe, effective, and can do no harm.

Animal Reiki acts on the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual energies and releases the imbalances that create dis-ease.

When an animal’s energy is balanced and flowing self-healing becomes possible. Animals respond quickly to Reiki energy and you’re able to see positive changes almost immediately.

Addressing the root cause of acute or chronic conditions, Animal Reiki can be used as preventative or maintenance care for existing problems.

Animal Reiki is a wonderful addition to any health program and can be used alongside other complementary therapies or conventional medicine. It’s important to note that Reiki is not a replacement for appropriate medical care. Instead, it supports medical care by accelerating self-healing, reducing pain or discomfort, and stimulating the body’s innate healing process.

Because Reiki is energy, it is not bound by time or space, it can be offered in-person or from a distance and is equally effective in both instances.

Discover how Animal Reiki can support your animal’s physical and emotional health.

What to Expect during your Animal Reiki Session

Many people have questions about the Animal Reiki sessions Susan provides. Here are her answers to the most common queries.

Question: Why do you offer an Animal Reiki home or at your location visits?

Animals are able to relax and receive Reiki much more successfully when they are comfortable and in their own environment. Some animals experience nausea, anxiety, and stress when riding in cars or being in unfamiliar territory. That added stress is the last thing you’d want to impose on an animal that is not feeling well, is elderly or injured, or is in the death and dying process.

Susan offers on-site Animal Reiki sessions at her location for animals that travel well and are comfortable in all environments.

Question: What does an Animal Reiki session look like?

Sometimes your animal will stay in one place during a session. While they lay on the floor, in their bed, or stand in pasture, Susan will place her hands in specific positions on or above their body. She may even sit a few feet away from your animal if they do not allow her to touch them. Since this is not massage, there is no manipulation of the muscles or flesh.

Question: What if my animal will not sit still during the session?

Your animal doesn’t need to lie quietly to receive the benefits of Reiki.

Some animals might enjoy the Reiki energy in short spurts and will get up and move away before coming back for more.

Others are excitable and you might not expect them to lie down at all. Most often, a particularly active animal will greet Susan and then go back to their usual antics for a while before settling in to receive Reiki – it usually takes about five minutes.

Some animals will hide initially. But, after Susan communicates with them telepathically and starts to send Reiki energy, they will come out.

Question: What will an Animal Reiki session feel like for my animal?

The Animal Reiki experience is unique for each animal but feelings of deep relaxation are common. Many animals smile, yawn, lick or kiss, roll over to offer their belly, stretch, or fall asleep when receiving Reiki. Basically, they simply relax and enjoy the wonderful feeling because they feel better.

Question: How many Animal Reiki sessions should my animal have?

Each animal’s needs are different. Results can be seen immediately or within a day or two depending on the situation. Sometimes it is necessary to do several consecutive sessions in a short period of time to receive the maximum benefit. During your initial consultation, Susan will recommend an Animal Reiki plan that will help you achieve your wellness goal.

Question: Can Animal Reiki be done from a distance?

Yes, it can. Because Reiki is energy and not limited to time or space, it can be offered in-person or from a distance. The energy is equally effective in both instances. Distance Reiki offers the same benefits as an in-person session and is preferable if you live outside Susan’s travel zone or if they’re in a veterinary clinic.

I can also send Distance Reiki to situations, circumstances, and specific events.

Working with Susan.

Animal Reiki sessions are an ideal complement to the great care you are already giving your companion animal.

Book a single Animal Reiki session to support your animal through a specific situation like healing from surgery, adjusting to a move, or giving birth.

Plan on making a series of Animal Reiki sessions either over the phone, in-person at Susan’s location or at your home to help your animal cope with a chronic condition. Difficult health and emotional or behavioral issues respond best to a sequence of Reiki sessions.

Susan often integrates various modalities in her healing sessions. Animal Communication is generally part of every Animal Reiki session because it gives both Susan and you a window into how your animal is feeling physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.

When Reiki is combined with Animal Communication, it is a very powerful healing tool.

Learn more about Animal Communication here and feel free to contact Susan to discuss your questions about how Animal Communication and Reiki work together for your animal’s highest good.

Although Susan prefers to include Animal Communication into her Reiki energy healing sessions, she also has Reiki plans without Animal Communication.

What Susan’s Clients are Saying

Kind words and praise.

Less anxious and more trusting

Very calm and patient, Susan truly has a gift when it comes to animals. A dog named Sally that I had adopted from a local shelter 5 months prior to our session was still having a difficult time adjusting to her new home with me. Susan helped to communicate Sally’s needs to me and was able to help her to feel more comfortable. Susan also did 3 distant Animal Reiki sessions. Since then, Sally has become less anxious and is more trusting of me. Outstanding work and I would highly recommend Susan.

Behavioral Improvements

I have to laugh at how excited Tonka gets when Susan arrives. He literally throws himself at her and lays on her lap, well half on her lap. It’s like he knows she is there to make him feel better. Tonka has had several sessions and I do see improvements with his behavior. I recommend Susan, she is a natural with animals.
