Reiki for Dogs

Did you know that Reiki can benefit your canine companion?

Giving a Reiki treatment to a dog involves the Reiki practitioner putting his or her hands lightly on or near the dog's body. Different hand positions are used, depending on the condition being treated. Every dog responds differently to Reiki ... some get close to the practitioner, some move further away and some move around to find a comfy spot and enjoy the energy.

Most often, a dog will enter a state of deep relaxation or sleep, or they will shift their bodies around and face in the direction that needs the most healing. Typically, about 10 or 15 minutes into a Reiki treatment, a dog will give a big 'sigh' as if to move into a deeper state of relaxation. Dogs seem to intuitively understand Reiki's power to heal.

All dogs, whether shelter dogs or dogs in happy homes, can benefit from the healing aspects of Reiki.

  • For healthy dogs, Reiki can help maintain energetic balance and promote health and well-being.
  • For dogs suffering from illness or injury, either physical or mental, Reiki is a powerful complement to both conventional and alternative healing methods.
  • For dying animals, Reiki gives them gentle, loving support in this process.
  • For a person who has a dog, works with dogs, or volunteers at a shelter, Reiki is a wonderful healing tool to be able to offer to your animal friends.

As with most animals, dogs will often let you know when they have received enough Reiki.  They will wake and stretch, go get a drink of water, or just simply leave the room. The practitioner will be able to sense that the energy has stopped flowing and the session is over.

Your canine companions will greatly benefit from your healing hands and will thank you!

Reiki for Dogs Testimonials

I was very concerned that Samson, my furry child, was picking up and carrying stuff that belonged to his "parents" as well as my clients since he is, when invited part of my Therapy Team!

I saw Pam's notice about the Animal Rescue event about Reiki for the animals. The notice struck a deep chord in me and I immediately messages her to see if she was available to treat Samson. His first treatment was via distance energy and I was "blown away" by Pam's sense of knowing about him.

The following day Samson had a hands on treatment and as a result I experienced a return of my " beautiful boy"! After sniffing around a bit Samson laid down in front of Pam and never moved until the treatment was over when he stood up gave a great shake and started to play! He has continued to play and appears to have been resting better ever since! I am grateful that Pam will include Samson on her client list and treat him as needed! My furry child is an essential part of my family and his health & well being is of vital importance to me! Investing in Reiki for your furry child is an act of love & appreciation for all their gifts to us!

I highly recommend Pam's Reiki for your pet!

Pam came to our home and we immediately noticed a connection between her and our dog Maggie.

Maggie curled up by Pam and barely acknowledged us. Pam informed us of the pain that Maggie was experiencing and some anxiety associated with it. Based on the information that Pam provided and a bit of investigation on our part we discovered that, in fact, Maggie had suffered a slight injury when staying with friends of ours, she had stumbled on their hardwood stairs and hurt her back.

Pam made some recommendations about how best to support Maggie so that she would return to her healthy, energetic self and they worked. It was quite amazing to see the difference between how Maggie would normally react in situations and the way she responded to Pam.

I would not hesitate to recommend Pam's Reiki sessions based upon my own experience and what I witnessed with Maggie.
