Reiki Sessions for Animals
Reiki is a safe, gentle, and effective Japanese energy therapy which heals on a physical, emotional, and spiritual level. Reiki helps by increasing the flow of chi, bringing people and animals back into alignment with their true nature. Because our animal companions give us so much joy, it's rewarding to give them the special gift of Reiki.
Reiki imparts well-being, groundedness, and a reduction in pain and distress. It can bring calmness to animals who are nervous or irritable. It supports animals who are sick, have behavioral issues or anxiety. Reiki helps animals of all conditions, constitutions, and ages.
Reiki can be performed in person or remotely, which means your pet can be anywhere and healing energy can be received. This is called Distance Reiki.
I have my certification in Animal Reiki from Animal Reiki Source, taught by Kathleen Prasad, and am a member of the Animal Reiki Alliance and Shelter Animal Reiki Association (SARA).
What can I expect from the session?
Sessions take place either in person or remotely (any distance). Distance Reiki sessions are performed using meditation and special distance Reiki symbols. Both types of sessions are powerfully effective.
During a Reiki session the animal may yawn, sigh, and rest peacefully. It may also make eye contact and want to be touched. Your pet's response helps indicate what it needs. A healing shift or result generally occurs in the 24 hours following the session, sometimes right after treatment.
Reiki always goes directly to the source of the problem whether we know what it is. It is not necessary for there to be a diagnosis for healing to take place. Depending on the situation and the pet a series of three sessions given in close proximity may be recommended. For an animal that is sick, more sessions are recommended.
Reiki works in harmony with other forms of treatment, and is not a substitute for veterinary care.
Reiki helps your pet feel healthy, vibrant, and balanced --
happy in their homes and in your arms.
I look forward to supporting you and your pets on this journey.
10-year-old Pomeranian Dolce who suffered from chronic anxiety had a life-changing session. He now has peace when his owner goes to work, no longer making messes while she is away. He loves curling up in her lap after previously not cuddling with her for a year.
"Dolce was attacked at 1 year old, and over a year had 5 surgeries. Since then, he has lived his life high strung and completely anxiety-ridden, and has had horrible separation issues as well. Last year he was diagnosed with kidney disease. Since, he has been withdrawn from snuggling. He lays far away and seems to not be comfortable. I've heard good things about Reiki but was skeptical about distance Reiki -- however, since Kim was kind enough to give him a distance Reiki session, I am blown away by the way Dolce has been acting. It's like having a puppy again. He's less stressed when I leave, he no longer has stress bowel movements when I'm
gone. He constantly wants to snuggle and be held. He is so happy and full of energy. It is absolutely night and day in the way he is acting. I am so glad I was lucky enough to meet Kim. She has helped my sweet baby be able to continue to enjoy life."

"We are jubilant about the change in our cat Precious. We got Precious in 2016. It seemed obvious she had been abused. She was frightened of any noise or movement and would hide for hours, keeping her distance by hiding under the dining room table. The change in Precious after working with Kim has been very exciting and gratifying. This is no joke. Within 3 distance treatments Kim gave Precious, from California to Connecticut, Precious jumps up on the bed begging for attention!! It has been unbelievable. She sat with my wife for several hours and within 5 minutes of me being in the house she had jumped on my lap. We are elated!"

"I engaged Kim to work with my dog a few months after her cancer diagnosis. Some of the work was in person and some was remote. Phoenix instantly took to Kim. During the sessions, Phoenix was very relaxed and content. After the sessions, Phoenix had an increased appetite and more energy. The work gave Phoenix comfort and strength during her terminal illness."

"My 12-year-old cat "Double 0" is a cranky old man. He'll often bully my dog by sitting in front of his food bowl or hop up on the bed when my dog is there and scratch the dog so he will leave and get the bed to himself with me. I just adopted another rescue dog and was worried about the transition between the new dog and the cat. Kim explained that Reiki may help reduce the anxiety and stress the cat would experience. After Kim performed a distance Reiki session for Double-0 I was amazed at how fast the cat got used to the new dog. One day I came home to find all three of them on my bed which was unseen even when it was just the one dog and cat. Thanks Kim!"

"My ten year old cat Charlie was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma with a large, aggressive tumor around his jaw. He was unable to bite down because the tumor is in the way and he is unable to chew so he stopped eating and was losing weight. When he received Reiki treatments he was calm, slept and was purring. Shortly after the treatment was finished he got up and ate. I was amazed! I'm so grateful to Kim for her help and loving kindness toward Charlie. Thank you!"
