How Does It Work?

It is Gentle, Painless, Non Invasive and Stress Free.

It is one of only a few therapies that brings no harm to any living thing- plant or animal- to produce it's healing properties.

Reiki is totally safe and it can be given at a distance or "hands on" depending on the animal- the animal chooses every time.   It can be   adapted to any problem that affects animals.

With Reiki, animals do not have to be confined or restrained to be treated. The animal retains a large degree of control over how much Reiki he will take and under what circumstances, He becomes an active and willing partner in the healing process.

"In every culture and in every medical tradition before ours, healing was accomplished by moving energy." Albert Szent-Gyorgyi, Nobel Laureate in Medicine

Reiki is not a substitute for professional Veterinary Treatment.

"The Veterinary Surgery Act of 1966 prohibits anyone, other than a qualified veterinary surgeon from treating animals, including diagnosis of ailments and giving advice on such diagnosis"

However the healing of animals   by contact, by the laying of hands or distant healing is legal. The Protection of Animals Act 1911 requires that if an animal clearly needs treatment from a veterinary surgeon the owner must obtain this. To give emergency First Aid to the animals for the purpose of saving life or   relieving pain is permissable   under the Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966 Schedule 3 (taken from the UK Reiki Federation Code of Ethics and Standards of practice- March 2002).  

It is a non- medical therapy that compliments and supports all other healing therapies, including veterinary   medicine, and is a valuable part of a combined approach to healing and health maintenance.  

One of the aspects of Reiki which is scientifically proven is that it releases endorphins into the body. Endorphins are our (and our animal's) natural opiates which act as pain relief and give us a "feel good" factor.

By releasing endorphins into our system this can :_

a) strengthen our immune system

b) decrease the intensity and awareness of physical pain    

c) activate the emotions that are vital to maintenance of good health

d) reduce the incidences of attitudes such as chronic hostility that negatively arouses and damages our bodies.

e) muliply the benefits to our body's systems provided by stress relief.
