How To Use Animal Reiki To Strengthen Your Bond With Your Pet - Understanding Animal Reiki


Reiki is a Japanese stress reduction and relaxation technique that promotes healing. It is based on the principle that a practitioner can channel energy into a client by means of touch or proximity to activate the natural healing processes of the client's body and restore physical and emotional well-being. Animal Reiki is a variation of reiki that is specifically designed for animals.


Animal reiki is based on the same principles as human reiki, but some key differences exist. Firstly, animal reiki practitioners use a more intuitive approach since animals cannot communicate with us like humans. Secondly, animal reiki practitioners may use different hand positions on animals than they would on humans, depending on the animal's size, temperament, and condition.


The benefits of animal reiki for pets are numerous. Animal Reiki can help reduce stress and anxiety, alleviate pain and discomfort, promote healing, and support emotional well-being. Animal reiki can also deepen the human-animal bond by creating a shared experience of relaxation and connection.


Preparing for Animal Reiki Before beginning an animal reiki session with your pet, creating a safe and calming environment for them is important. Choose a quiet and comfortable space, preferably one your pet already knows. Remove distractions or potential stressors, such as loud noises or other animals.


It's also important to connect with your pet through intention and presence. Take a few deep breaths and focus your attention on your pet. Set an intention for the session, such as to promote relaxation and healing, and visualise a positive outcome.

Remember to approach your pet with respect, love, and compassion.


It is recommended that you find a qualified animal reiki practitioner. Look for someone certified in animal reiki and with experience working with pets.

Techniques for Animal Reiki


Animal reiki practitioners use various techniques to channel energy into animals. One of the most common techniques involves placing their hands on or near the animal's body in several positions. The energy flows through the practitioner's hands into the animal's body, promoting relaxation and healing.

Animal reiki practitioners may also use visualisation and breathwork to deepen the connection with the animal. Visualizing a white light or golden aura around the animal can help create a sense of calm and relaxation. Practicing deep breathing exercises can also help synchronize the breathing patterns of the practitioner and the animal, promoting a sense of unity and connection.


Paying attention to the animal's response during the animal reiki session is important. Animals may respond differently, such as falling asleep, becoming more relaxed, or exhibiting signs of discomfort. It's important to respect the animal's response and adjust the session accordingly.
