Reiki has many benefits for both humans and animals but I have chosen to work with animals. Animals do not have a voice and many animals who find themselves, for no fault of their own, in strange environments experience extreme stress.
Animals are highly sensitive especially in response to environmental changes. I have been very fortunate to be able to work with animals in a local shelter and although the staff do all they can to make the animals comfortable and properly cared for by trained caring staff and veterinary practitioners, they often find being confined extremely distressing.
Reiki has been shown to be beneficial in some of the following ways:-
Reiki helps calm animals when they experience stress or anxiety in strange environments.
Reiki helps animals who are fearful
Reiki can help with social problems with animals who may find it difficult to trust people.
Reiki helps recovery after surgery or illness
Reiki can help with behavioural issues
Reiki can help support weaker or older animals
Reiki helps to build a sense of overall wellbeing
