Reiki for Animals

Is Reiki for Animals Different from Reiki for Humans?

I work with people and I work with animals to help them improve and maintain their quality of life. Reiki is wonderful for our animal companions because it is gentle, noninvasive and does not require physical contact. It does not cause them stress, pain, discomfort or aggravate their issues. Numerous powerful benefits result from Reiki for animals. Just like with humans, animals easily respond to Reiki’s influence to support their healing of emotional, behavioral, and physical illnesses and injuries.

For animals who are ill, Reiki is a wonderful healing method as well as a safe complement to Western Medicine, Chinese Medicine, homeopathy, and all other forms of natural healing. Animal Reiki can reduce the side effects of chemotherapy and surgery. Reiki accelerated the healing of Quincy, a dachshund in my family, after major back surgery.

Reiki treatment for humans generally includes a series of specific hand positions lightly placed upon different areas of the body to identify and stimulate healing. Unlike humans, animals will frequently place certain parts of their body that need healing against the hands of the Reiki practitioner. You can use Reiki with a light touch on an animal or from several feet away. Some animals may come forward to receive hands-on treatment. A Reiki practitioner can use distant Reiki to help the healing process.

I encourage Reiki in treating our animal companion’s endocrine glands which include the Pineal and Pituitary, Thyroid and Thymus, Adrenals, Pancreas, Gonads and Ovaries. And always, follow your intuition on where to place your hands.

I am noticing the small snowflakes coming down in Prescott, Arizona today. This weather reminds me of our individuality and the changes that each of us experience throughout our lives. When we choose to direct how we respond rather than react to life, most everything changes for the better. Sometimes we experience serendipity!

Becoming a certified Reiki Practitioner is a wonderful experience that brings many positive life changes. In addition to the personal and spiritual growth you receive, there is a tremendous satisfaction and fulfillment in helping your clients to feel dramatically better after Reiki treatments.

Having a Reiki practice and serving many people of different ages and conditions while earning a well-deserved living, is a dream come true for many Reiki Practitioners. For those of you who want to develop your knowledge and skills to an even higher level, I also teach certification classes for Reiki Master Teachers. Many of my Reiki Master Teacher students continue to teach their own certification classes around the United States and abroad.

The next Prescott, Arizona scheduled Reiki Levels I & II Certification classes, are on Saturday & Sunday, April 26-27 2014. I am teaching a Reiki Master Teaching certification class in Prescott, Arizona on Saturday and Sunday, June 22, 2014.

Class Description

This class is designed to teach The Usui System of Natural Healing. This certification class is a combination of lecture, discussion, and hands-on practice experience.  Additional practice after the class is necessary to gain the experience and confidence you need to embrace the Reiki Level I training and becoming a Reiki practitioner.  Kindle your passions, stimulate your compassion and re-ignite your inner power by attending this certification class.

I teach each Reiki Certification Class with the traditional Usui System of Natural Healing AND combine it with effective non traditional approaches. I delineate specific non-traditional approaches during the class. The most recent research on Reiki is provided.

In addition to my spiritual side I also have an equally prominent scientific perspective. Therefore, I teach each class with information about quantum physics to help explain how the energy of Reiki works.

Our lunch break is 1 hour 15 minutes and away from the training location.This class is held 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m in Prescott, Arizona. Time for lunch (meal not provided) and breaks are given. Upon completion of the class, participants will be certified as a Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki Level I, (Shoden) First Degree Practitioner.

Bring your massage table if you have one.

The fee for the Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki Level I, (Shoden) First Degree Practitioner Certification Class is $150.  The combined Reiki I  & II Levels Certification Classes discount fee is $400. The next  Reiki Level II class is Sunday, April 27, 2014. This does not include the required latest edition of  Reiki The Healing Touch First & Second Degree Manual, by William Lee Rand. Included are the Japanese Reiki Techniques and the Hayashi Healing Guide. Additionally, you can purchase a 25”x38” Reiki Hand Positions Wall Poster for treating others and yourself. Also the opportunity to attend any additional Usui Reiki Level I Practitioner classes, space permitting, for one year.
