An Energetic Approach to Healing
What is Reiki and is it for me?
What is Reiki Healing?
Reiki is a Japanese energy healing technique used to reduce stress and promote healing. It is preformed by the practitioner hovering their hands over the client's body. Unseen, but at times felt, energy flows through the practitioner into the client allowing healing to occur. The energy that naturally flows through us is what causes us to be alive. If one's energy source is running low they are more likely to get ill, feel stress, and be unable to let go of traumas.
Who can benefit from this form of healing?
Reiki can improve the health of both humans and pets. This form of energy healing therapy focuses on what the body needs most, from physical repair to emotional healing. Traumas can melt away, ailments can disappear, and strength restored.
The History of Reiki
Reiki is a Japanese healing art founded in the early 20th century by Mikao Usui. In literal translation, it means "spiritual energy". The word “Reiki” is a combination of two Japanese words. Rei meaning spirit and Ki meaning energy. The term Reiki Energy refers to the use of Ki, which is the energy that already runs through all of us and all things in the universe. During the healing this energy is guided and moved throughout the body to heal and revitalize old emotional blocks, traumas, injuries, and illnesses. The spirit portion of the word refers to our oneness with all things. This deeper connection we all share allows for us to energetically help one another.
Reiki provides healing to animals at all levels, mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual.
Reiki does not require physical touch and is therefore beautifully suited for the treatment of animals from the cuddly house pet to the unapproachable, traumatized rescue. The practitioner provides a gentle, non-invasive space for the animal while still providing healing. Allowing an animal a safe zone to heal without the fear of contact is life altering for those animals who have been victims of abuse, were wild, or are sick beyond trust of physical contact.
Any animal’s body has the innate ability to heal itself if given the chance. Unlike most treatments, which are done to an animal, Reiki is considered a treatment done with the animal. Together through mediation and energy guidance the animal and practitioner open the channels of blocked energy, revitalizing the body and allowing it to heal.
Sanctuaries and shelters that open their doors to Reiki volunteers are floored by the positive outcomes of this healing practice. Reiki provides their animals much needed stress relief, and in some cases, physical healing which emotional trauma has caused. When an animal enters a shelter, they are in a strange place surrounded by animals they don’t know and people that are strangers. This can be exceptionally stressful for them and in many cases, is displayed by shaking, pacing, and barking. These same animals when visited by a Reiki practitioner will lie down, deeply sigh, and take a long overdue nap. Since the treatment of Reiki is irresistibly peaceful and stress relieving, it is not only a great tool for healing illnesses and injuries but also for high stress and anxiety cases.
