Animal Reiki

Reiki (RAY-key) is a Japanese stress reduction technique. “Rei” means spirit, Source, or higher wisdom; and “ki” is life force energy. With humans, a Reiki session is usually conducted through gentle touch, with the client fully clothed on a massage table. However, Reiki can work across the room or across the world!

The animal Reiki method I practice, Let Animals Lead®, works through meditation. This method helps create a peaceful space that lets the animal, and very often the human caregiver, relax. The animal can come closer, move away, lie down, go outside, or decline to participate altogether. This is a game changer for rescued animals and those undergoing medical treatment because it gives them a choice. We all feel and function better when we can relax, recharge, and reset on our own terms.

Reiki is not a miracle cure and is never a substitute for veterinary care. Rather, it complements veterinary treatment and other modalities by promoting relaxation, whether an animal is dealing with anxiety, illness, a behavioral problem, or end-of-life issues.

How sessions work

I offer in-person animal Reiki sessions in your home, barn, or clinic in the Fort Wayne, Indiana area. When I arrive, we’ll talk about any concerns you may have. Then I’ll find a comfortable place to sit or stand and meditate with your animal friend, allowing the energy to do whatever it needs to do, according to the animal’s wishes. Touch is up to the animal, too. Animals know what they need. I allow approximately an hour.

We also have the option of distant Reiki sessions, in which I connect with the animal and send healing energy remotely. You and your animal do not have to do anything in particular during the session; lie down and relax, go for a walk, or whatever feels right for you. Afterward, you and I can touch base by phone or email.

While a Reiki session is a quiet time, I also offer animal communication sessions geared toward gathering information and insight.

Book a session

By arranging a Reiki or animal communication session with me, you understand that:

  • I am not a veterinary professional and cannot medically diagnose, treat, or prescribe. My first question will always be: “What does your vet say?”
  • You must be the animal’s owner. If not, I need permission from the owner.
  • All information is held in strictest confidence.
  • No one who does this work, including me, can claim 100 percent accuracy in receiving, translating, and relaying information. You are in charge of your and your animal companion’s well-being. Take what resonates and leave the rest.
  • I follow the Code of Ethics for Interspecies Telepathic Communicators and Animal Reiki Practitioner Code of Ethics.

Contact me about whichever option you choose, make a payment by clicking the appropriate button below, and we’ll set an appointment. If you’re not sure what your animal friend needs, contact me anyway and I’ll help you figure out the next step.
