Reiki Treatments

Reiki (pronounced RAY KEY) is the channeling of universal life force energy to promote healing. A Japanese healing arts tradition, "Reiki" is made up of "Rei", which means "universal", referring to the spiritual dimension of the soul; and "ki", the life force energy that flows through all living things. Reiki is a laying on of hands healing technique. Thought to have originated with Tibetan Buddhists, it was rediscovered in Japan in the 1880´s by Dr. Mikao Usui. During a Reiki treatment, healing energy flows from the Universal Source, through the Reiki practitioner to the client. Reiki energy is by definition gentle, benign, and intelligent. It will go where it is most needed in the body to promote physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual healing.

Receiving Reiki feels a lot like what people sometimes call "caring" or "love". Dogs are a natural match for Reiki, because they automatically recognize and seek out sources of positive feeling. If we laugh, they become energized, wag their tails, even start to bark or lick our faces. If we praise them and cheer them on, they will repeat the desired behaviors over and over. When dogs feel the energy in a Reiki practitioners´ hands, they quickly gravitate to it, and the practitioner can often feel them soaking it up, sponge-like.

Before treating others, Reiki practitioners go through rigorous training to learn to attune themselves to the energy of the Universal Source. It is a demanding discipline, and there are three separate "levels" of skill which students must master over a period of time in order to become Reiki Teachers.
