Reiki for Dogs and Other Pets

What is Reiki?

REIKI (pronounced Ray-key) is a Japanese word meaning "Universal Energy,” the vital, creative force that flows through everything. Reiki is the use of energy to heal and can help remove blockages, balance energy and help identify physical pain. Reiki healing stimulates the energy to flow properly, while also cleansing the energy within and around the body to speed up the healing process. Performed remotely (distant healing), or in-person through touch, Reiki practitioners pass a higher frequency energy to their animal patients to assist them in healing themselves. Reiki is non-invasive and gentle, yet can help heal and energize an animal's body on physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels. 

Why choose Gillian Edwards and Four Paws Holistic Therapy?

Certified Karuna and Reiki Master, Gillian Edwards, skillfully invites universal life force energy to pass through her into the animal—to open blocks that cause illness, fear and emotional rigidity. Her years of experience in practicing Reiki on both humans and animals, provide a source of deep relaxation, stress reduction and healing through balance. While Gillian stresses that Reiki should never replace conventional veterinary medicine, she can provide healing energy to complement traditional and alternative animal medical treatment, as well as help with an animal's emotional and spiritual well-being.
