Treat your furry friend

Reiki Benefits

The powerful healing energy of Reiki can have many wonderful benefits for pets as well as their owners.

Benefits for pets may include:

  • Alleviating anxiety, stress, nervousness and producing a state of calm
  • Increasing energy levels and overall well-being
  • Supplementing medical treatments
  • Helping to heal after surgery, injury or trauma
  • Relieving aches, pains, strains and allergies
  • Addressing issues with the coat, skin or feathers
  • Getting pets through depression or bereavement
  • Owners benefit from knowing they are passing along loving kindness and healing, all of which strengthens the bond between you and your pet.

How It Works

If safe to do so and I have permission from your animal friend, I will keep him/her in my open hand or lay my warm hands on them, making sure that they are comfortable and can move freely to breathe. If your pet sits still, I will place my other hand directly on the area that seems to be afflicted. If your pet won’t sit still, I will hold my other hand up to four inches above your pet, or place my hands lovingly on their cage or bedding where they sleep.

If you’re not comfortable using Reiki on your pet yourself, seeking out a veterinarian that incorporates Reiki techniques or a Reiki practitioner that treats animals, is an amazing way to ensure that your animal friend still gets to enjoy this wonderful treat.

Finding a Reiki Practitioner

To learn more about how Reiki can help you and your pets or to schedule a Reiki session,  please use the contact form below to reach out to me. If your pet is sick or injured be sure of course to see your veterinarian. Reiki may help in conjunction with your veterinarian’s care.

Please Note: Reiki is meant to be used as a complement to traditional care or as a personal relaxation or stress reducing tool. It isnot a substitute for qualified medical or traditional care.

Reiki and healing your Chakras

Reiki is an ancient form of Japanese healing that is practiced by many practitioners around the world. It is omnipotent energy that gives life to every living thing and the Japanese call this “Ki.” It is also known as Chi by the Chinese, Prana by a number of Asian cultures, and most of the western world refers to it as the Holy Spirit.

Chakras, a Sanskrit language word meaning “wheel of life,” are energy centers found throughout the body. The position of each of the major chakras corresponds with an endocrine gland controlling hormonal balance. These chakras are located at the base of the spine (root chakra), between the genitals and naval (sacral chakra), a couple of inches above the naval (solar plexus chakra), the center of the chest (heart chakra), middle of the neck (throat chakra), just above the brow area (third-eye chakra), and top of the head (crown chakra). Chakras represent specific aspects of the conscious being and their main functions and characteristics are as follows:

Color: Red

Body Parts: Adrenal glands, kidneys, spinal column, leg bones

Function: Grounds you physically.

Imbalance: Afraid of life, feel victimized, selfishness, prone to violence; low back, feet, and leg pain, lack of trust in others and self.

Body parts: Thyroid gland, throat and jaw areas, lungs, vocal cords, digestive tract

Function: Communication and mental creativity

Imbalance: Communication breakdowns, overindulgences in eating and drinking to keep from speaking the truth; respiratory diseases, dental problems, and low self-esteem as well as anger, hostility, and resentment

Color: Indigo

Body parts: Pituitary gland, lower brain, left eye, ears, nose, central nervous system

Function: Intuition and clairvoyance; ability to visualize and manifest

Imbalance: Fear of dreams, headaches, insomnia, anxiety, and depression

Color: Violet

Body parts: Pineal gland, upper brain, right eye

Function: Direct connection to spirit and higher self

Imbalance: Loneliness, need to compare ourselves to others, fear of death, narcissism, selfishness

By placing the hands over each corresponding seven major chakra centers that are experiencing any of the imbalances mentioned and performing Reiki, these centers can be rebalanced leading to better health and leaving you feeling so much better than you did before.

Massage therapy for stress relief

The American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) notes that massage therapy can be effective for stress relief. Stress is a prevalent component in today’s fast-paced world which can negatively impact on an individual’s health and well-being. Massage therapy has been shown to be a means by which stress can be reduced significantly on physical and psychological levels. While massage therapists know from experience that massage reduces stress, there is considerable research that validates our experience.

In a study on the effect of trigger point therapy, there was a significant decrease in heart rate, systolic blood pressure, and diastolic blood pressure. Measures of oxygen consumption, blood pressure, and salivary cortisol levels were all lower after a 10 to 15-minute massage in controlled studies.

Changes in psychological states have been measured by physiological responses, the Perceived Stress Scale, the POMS Depression Scale, and the Anxiety State Scale. In these studies, all subjects in the massage group showed significant changes in emotional states and stress levels.

Stress is a response to pressure or threat. Under stress, we may feel tense, nervous, or on edge. The stress response is physical, too. Stress triggers a surge of a hormone called adrenaline that temporarily affects the nervous system.

Stress suppresses the immune system, which makes it easier for you to get sick and harder to fight off bugs. When people are stressed, they get sick. It could be a cold or cold sores, which pop up because the immune system can’t suppress the virus. These are just symptoms, but the underlying cause is stress.

It is imperative to your health to take action steps to combat the effects of stress. Like with most of our problems, stress will not just go away by itself. Long after we have sorted out a stressful situation, our bodies still feel the effects of stress. You need to be proactive in managing your stress levels and book regular stress management sessions with your therapist.

I utilize a variety of different modalities that have been proven to combat stress and its effects on our minds and bodies. Take that first step to wellness today and contact me to book your stress management consultation.

I look forward to assisting you in living a Kaleidolife!
