Reiki Therapy for Dogs

–Will Your Dog Like It?

We normally associate Reiki, the ancient Japanese form of touch therapy, as a form of healing only practiced on humans. The growing popularity of keeping dogs as pets has seen many owners turning to Reiki therapists to treat their animals.
Reiki is a powerful natural therapy; it is a safe, gentle form of holistic healing that is eminently suitable for both humans and animals. When treating your dog a Reiki therapist channels energy through themselves, and into the patient. This energy flow can be administered either in a “hands-on” way or it can make use of a “distance healing” approach. The dog will usually determine the type of approach they prefer and the length of the treatment session. When your dog feels he/she has had enough they will generally walk away.

The therapy sessions will vary in length, the number required and the approach being taken. Generally the first session will involve the therapist familiarising themselves with your dog and establishing a rapport. They will then ask what you are trying to achieve and gather background information about your pets health and lifestyle. After the first visit any further sessions will typically last for 15 to 45 minutes.

In a healing session there is generally no use made of a treatment table, most dogs prefer to sit or lie down either on the floor, in a comfortable chair or on their owner's lap.

When a hands-on approach is taken the therapist uses a fixed set of hand positions suitable for dogs. This is a gentle process that dogs find soothing and welcoming.

Some dogs will be nervous, aggressive or just simply prefer not to be touched by strangers; they will often be more comfortable receiving the Reiki from a distance. This approach works equally well; the energy flow works just the same as it does if given “hands-on”.

Dogs respond well to Reiki, treatment is particularly successful in treating muscular aches, pains, back problems and strains. It can reduce stress, anxiety, nervousness and skin or coat problems and it is often used to help dogs with behaviour problems.

If you are contemplating using Reiki therapy for your dog it is worth bearing in mind that, in the UK, any sick animal must be taken to a vet, so any alternative therapy practitioner working with animals will need a referral from a veterinary surgeon in order to treat your pet legally.


The Increase in Popularity of Complementary and Alternative Therapies for Animals.

Recent years has seen a rapid growth in “Alternative or Complementary” medicine, this has been evidenced by the increase in practitioners and clinics offering treatments in these various forms of Alternative Therapy.
We have also seen the gradual acceptance by GP’s within the NHS of these forms of therapy as a genuine form of alternative to “convential” medicine.
The therapies available to animals has mirrored this growth and we now have a growth of practitioners offering Complementary Therapies for an increasing range of animals.
The veterinary profession has not been as quick as NHS GP’s in accepting Complementary Therapies as a suitable alternative treatment for animals. However vets, in their Guide to Professional Conduct have had to recognise the importance of "accountability, accessibility and transparency" in informing their clients about all the treatment options available to their animals
A wide variety of Clinics and Therapists now offer therapies for animals, some of the more popular include:-
• Acupuncture
• Aromatherapy
• Reiki
• Shiatsu
• Hydrotherapy
• Reflexology
• Homoeopathy
• Osteopathy
• Magnotherapy
• Chiropractic Therapy
• Kinesiology
The above range of therapies that are now being used to treat our animals confirm the growth in popularity of these forms of treatment, this is further reflected in the diverse types of animals that owners are choosing to receive treatment.
Horse owners have probably been the pioneers in this use of alternative therapy but there has been a significant growth in the range of animals receiving treatment these include dogs, cats, birds, various other more exotic pets and animals from farms and zoos.
If you are contemplating using Alternative or Complementary Therapy for your animal it is worth bearing in mind that any sick animal must be taken to a vet and any alternative practitioner working with animals will need a referral from a veterinary surgeon in order to treat your pet legally.
