Reiki for Animals
I have always had a close affinity with all animals, especially horses, for as long as I can remember, but only recently have I had the courage to acknowledge that I have inherited this skill, which has led me along this path, helping others.
Reiki for your horse
Your horse must feel at ease and in their normal surroundings and routine as much as possible in order to get the most from the treatment. A session will leave them feeling very relaxed and some horses take a nap soon after as part of the healing process.
A Reiki session can be anything up to an hour as the horse dictates when he/she has had enough by moving away. Some horses, like some people, take up and use the healing energy a lot more effectively than others.
Reiki can help to:
- Reduce anxiety
- Promote self-healing
- Balance mind, body and soul
- Promote relaxation
- Reduce behavioural problems
- Release blocked energy
Reiki for your pet
Your pet is best treated in familiar surroundings to aid relaxation. Reiki healing is a gentle contact with the animal with my hands, or I can work in close proximity. Most animals enjoy Reiki and will approach for this gentle touch when they are ready. Your pet may be quite sleepy afterwards and might want to rest quietly.
Animals instinctively know how much healing they need and will generally move away when they have had enough. Some animals choose to stay a short distance away but they will still receive the healing energy the same.
Reiki is not a substitute for veterinary treatment. If your animal is under veterinary care you must obtain their permission for Reiki treatment to be given and they may even want to be present.
Price- from £40 plus travel.

The Veterinary Surgery Act of 1966 prohibits anyone, other than a qualified veterinary surgeon from treating animals, including diagnosis of ailments and giving advice on such diagnosis. However the healing of animals by contact healing, by laying of hands or distant healing is legal. The Protection of Animals Act 1911 requires that if an animal clearly needs treatment from a veterinary surgeon the owner must obtain this. To give emergency First Aid to animals for the purpose of saving life or relieving pain is permissible under the Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966 Schedule 3. (taken from the Reiki Federation Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice- March 2002)
I offer Reiki at my practice in Market Lavington.
What is Reiki?
Reiki (Universal life force energy) is an ancient technique, re-discovered by Dr Mikao Usui a Japanese theologian, in the 19th century. It is used to provide that extra boost for the body, promoting the flow of energy helping the body heal itself naturally.
During a treatment, I will channel this energy through my hands and use it to rebalance the chakras, or energy centres.
What happens in a session?
Reiki is a non-invasive, complementary therapy using the energy that flows through all living things, which Eastern medicine has worked with for thousands of years. You will be fully clothed lying on a couch or sitting on a chair. I will place my hands just above or lightly touch, different areas, concentrating on where the energy is most needed.
Your body will take as much energy as it requires. It has the ability to heal itself, but sometimes this healing process becomes weak, or blocked. Your energy can be affected by stress, anxiety, life events, or illness. Reiki helps to bring balance to your mind, body and soul, encouraging deep relaxation, promoting self-healing.
I offer Reiki as a one-off session, or combined with counselling sessions.
Reiki can help with (for example):
- Anxiety and Stress
- Poor circulation
- Balancing emotion
- Immune system
- Respiratory issues
- Skin problems

My husband restores old cars. He has been at a loss recently with an MG which refused all attempts to start it. In desperation he asked me to ‘have a go’ at reiki with it.
I tuned in, and felt the car was neglected and un-loved. It was just taking up space in the workshop, and had no purpose, and no future – a sad MG.
I was aware of the energy around the car shifting into something much more positive and happier.
The next day, I asked my husband to keep a more positive outlook towards this car himself, and, to his amazement, he turned the ignition key, and it started first time!
Was this a pure coincidence, or had an energy shift moved things on?
A friend of mine had a new horse. His stable was in an old farm building, and since he had arrived, he always stood at the back of the box, and avoided the middle of the bed.
The evening I visited, he showed early signs of colic, and was very quiet and subdued, with no movement in his guts. The vet was called, and he relaxed after a while, and back to eating his hay.
Well, I am qualified as a Reiki master, and am finding it fascinating working with both people and animals, working with this natural energy. I have always felt I could tune into animals, particularly horses, and I am thrilled that what I have been doing for years is a recognised skill.
