Reiki & Animal Healing

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a non-invasive complementary treatment that assists the body’s own healing processes and patients’ coping strategies. It is a holistic therapy, meaning it treats the whole body – mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. Reiki is proven safety treatment which uses a hands-off or light-touch technique.

It has been shown to be very beneficial with many ailments, including a number of common chronic diseases as well as terminal illness.

Although natural healing such as Reiki may be perceived as a new treatment because of its rising popularity, it is in fact thousands of years old and has been used in several ancient cultures. Hippocrates recognized healing energies and observed that the heat emanating from hands was beneficial. Natural healing is being increasingly accepted within mainstream health care, and many nurses and doctors have been trained in its practice.  It is currently practiced in the UK in some NHS hospitals and hospices.

How can learning Reiki help me?
Reiki works on not just healing all aspects of you – physical, mental, emotional & spiritual but helping with your own growth, intuition & awareness. It has a beautifully calming and relaxing affect when you receive Reiki but also magically as you give Reiki to someone – its like a win win where both the person giving Reiki and the person receiving it, benefit. How amazing is that?.

My Reiki Journey
When I had a life changing accident, it was Reiki that gave me my health back and so much more. Then I discovered I could learn to do it for myself too, both to heal and get out of that stressed out feeling to find an inner calm, meditation & Reiki self-healing state of calm. Letting go of old ways of being of self-criticism, self-doubt and judgement can and does happen with Reiki. Any time you find yourself criticising, doubting or judging you can empower yourself & create that inner serenity within by using Reiki. That’s what it has done and continues to do for me & I would love teaching you how to do this too.

My Animal Healing journey

I first started learning to heal animals in 2002 when I had been attuned to Reiki 2 and wanted to practise.  I volunteered at Woodgreen Animal Sanctuary and a local Cats Protection sanctuary and would visit and give healing every week to the dogs, cats, horses, goats, sheep,  mice, rabbits  – whatever animals were at the sanctuary.  And the response was amazing.  So much so that the Mangers asked if I could teach them which I started to do in 2005.  And since then have trained over 100 people in Reiki and Animal Healing at the two sanctuaries.   

I have been formally trained with three brilliant teachers, the world renowned animal healer – Margit Coates, the internally known Amelia Kinkade for animal communication, and locally with my Reiki Master.  From this and my own hands on experience, I put together two one-day courses and stated teaching others Animal Healing in 2006.  Working with animals and teaching animal healing to others has been not just a passion for me but has taught me so much about myself and “us humans”, it has been and invaluable part of my journey, called life.
