Reiki and Your Pet: A Holistic Approach to Animal Care

Healing pets

Do you have an animal companion? If so, you know that they are a part of the family. Just like humans, animals can suffer from physical and emotional ailments. Fortunately, there is a growing trend of using Reiki to help heal pets. Let’s discuss how Reiki can be used to help heal your furry friends.


Reiki is a form of energy healing that uses universal life force energy. This energy is present in all living things and can be harnessed for healing purposes. While it is often used on humans, it can also be used for healing pets with great success.

What Can Reiki Do For Your Pet?

As a pet owner, you always want nothing but the very best for your furry friend. You provide them with food, shelter, and love; in return, they give you companionship and unconditional love. However, sometimes even the most well-cared-for pets can become anxious or sick.

Most people are familiar with the benefits of Reiki for humans, but did you know that this ancient healing practice can also be used to help our furry friends? Like humans, animals can experience imbalances in their energy levels, leading to physical and emotional health problems. Applying Reiki to your pet suffering from anxiety can help restore balance, increase energy levels and promote overall wellbeing.


Animals often respond very well to the treatment. Many pet owners have reported it decreased anxiety in their pets and overall stress levels. It is also an extremely relaxing experience for both animals and their owners. It can also support healing after surgery, injury, stress, or trauma.


Reiki works by channeling universal life force energy through the practitioner and into the animal. This energy helps to promote relaxation and encourages the natural self-healing process, and supports the body’s ability to heal itself. Reiki is a gentle and non-invasive therapy that can be used safely on all animals, including those who are pregnant, elderly, or have special needs. Note that distance Reiki healing has the same benefits as one performed physically.


Reiki is a wonderful healing modality that can be used to help animals (and their owners) in many different ways. Reiki is completely natural and has no side effects, making it a safe and gentle option for all animals. So, whether you are looking to ease your pet’s anxiety, stress, nervousness or depression or simply deepen your connection with them, Reiki may be worth considering.


There is also a growing interest in using Reiki healing in shelter animals and veterinary practices.


Finding a qualified Reiki practitioner is recommended if you are interested in using Reiki to help heal your pet.

It is vital to note that Reiki is not a substitute for traditional medical care. If your animal is suffering from a serious illness or injury, you should always consult with a veterinarian first. However, many pet owners have found that Reiki can be a helpful complement to traditional medical care.

Incorporating Reiki into Your Animal Care Routine

When incorporating Reiki healing into your animal care routine, it is important to remember that each animal is unique and may respond differently to the energy. Some animals may enjoy the Reiki treatments and show signs of relaxation, while others may not be as receptive. It is important to be patient and gentle when offering Reiki to an animal and to always listen to their cues. If an animal does not seem to enjoy the treatment, simply let the practitioner know and try another time again. If this happens, the healing session can continue with the owner only if this is requested.


Reiki can be a wonderful way to help promote healing and relaxation in your furry friend, and with regular treatments, you may notice a positive difference in their overall health and wellbeing.


Certified Reiki practitioners are trained to channel healing energy into the animal’s body, providing relief from pain, stress, and illness. The Reiki session can also help to create a deeper bond between animal and owner, fostering a sense of trust and mutual respect. 


If your pet is feeling stressed or under the weather, a Reiki treatment and healing may be just what they need to feel better. It can also support deeper connections and trust between the owner and the animal. And best of all, it’s a gentle and natural way to help your pet feel happy and healthy.
