Hands On or Distance Healing
Reiki is most often translated as “universal life force energy” and is pronounced “Ray Key”. It is a combination of two Japanese words – Rei which means “Spirit” or “Universe” and Ki which is “life force energy”.
Reiki is a natural, vibrational, hands-on healing practice which utilises the presence of universal life force energy to support the body’s self healing ability.
The system of Reiki was founded in Japan in the early 1900’s by Mikao Usui and has been passed down from teacher to student since this time. It was introduced to the West in the mid-1900’s by Hawayo Takata who was born in Hawaii of Japanese descent.
Today Reiki is widely used throughout the world as both a self-help tool and to assist others in a multitude of situations from private practices to hospitals.

Reiki for Animals
Giving animals Reiki treatments is something I particularly enjoy. Animals seem to like receiving treatments and sense immediately that something special is being given to them by human hands. It is very unusual to come across animals who do not accept Reiki energy, although treatment may need to start back from their physical body as they are such sensitive creatures. Usually animals show you with their body position where to place your hands, and they often become calm and relaxed in the course of a treatment.
Cats and dogs tend to remain lying down as long as they need Reiki and will generally stand up or walk away when they have had enough.
Postoperative treatments can be very beneficial as the recovery speeds up and animal is able to heal with less stress.
