WHAT IS REIKI? Reiki is a form of natural healing developed by Mikao Usui in Japan early in the twentieth century. The word Reiki means 'universal energy'. Using this natural healing energy is a truly holistic treatment that works on every level of the being, physically, emotionally and spiritually. A Reiki practitioner has undergone a special initiation that has 'attuned' them to the Reiki energy. This initiation, given by an experienced Reiki Master, along with further experience allows the practitioner to act as a 'channel' for the Reiki energy which flows through them to the patient during a treatment. WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS? Reiki promotes the bodies own regenerative ability. Because Reiki is non-invasive it can be used safely on all horses of all ages without the worry of any side-effects. It can be used alongside conventional veterinary treatment and other complementary therapies. Reiki has been used successfully to treat, amongst other things abuse, trauma, stress, training issues, muscle strain / sprain, post-surgical recovery, inflammation & low immunity. WHAT HAPPENS DURING A SESSION? The practitioner will gently lay their hands on or over a series of positions on the horses body. These positions are based on the chakras, the subtle energy points of the body that connect the energy of the physical body with that of the subtle body. The patients' system then draws in only as much Reiki energy as is needed, using it in the most appropriate way at that time. I normally communicate with the horse or your pet prior to a Reiki treatment and already know where any problem areas are located. I have discovered that when this is the case it is beneficial to concentrate the session on these areas only. The patient is still able to use some of the Reiki energy in other body/emotional areas as appropriate. The flow of Reiki is deeply relaxing and has a calming effect and can be felt as a mild tingling sensation, warmth or coolness. Any animal should be allowed to rest in a peaceful environment after treatment. This allows the Reiki to continue its' work even though the session has ended. Animals should be offered unlimited fresh water after treatment to aid removal of toxins released during the session. Because Reiki is based on the universal energy a practitioner can give a Reiki session remotely. HOW OFTEN SHOULD MY HORSE/OTHER PET HAVE REIKI? There is no set recommendation for the number or frequency of treatments required. Often just one Reiki session can make a big difference to an animals welfare and will be all that is needed. In more complex cases a course of treatment weekly, fortnightly or monthly may be more appropriate to the individual horse, dog or cat.
