Reiki for Vets: Incorporating Reiki at Your Clinic
As a Veterinarian, even a holistic one, it can be a challenge to educate your clients about Reiki and get them to open up to its possible benefits. Click here for a free 1-hour audio course, "Introduction to Animal Reiki for Vets". In addition, here are a few more ideas about how to go about incorporating Reiki as a holistic modality at your clinic:
- Bring in an Animal Reiki Teacher to teach Reiki to you and your staff. Email Kathleen Prasad for a teacher in your area.*Note: if you cannot find an Animal Reiki Teacher in your area, you can also train in "Human Reiki" and then take Kathleen's Core Curriculum course which covers all the fundamentals of working with animals.
- Since Reiki practitioners do not diagnose conditions or prescribe medical treatments, you can also bring in an outside Animal Reiki Practitioner to work in partnership with you and to support the healing program at your clinic--either in-house, or in clients' homes. See the Practitioner Directory page for Animal Reiki specialists in your area.
- Put together a 1-page flyer for your clients explaining what Reiki is and how it can help their animals. Click here for a printable 2-page information sheet you can copy and hand out at your office. Display this sheet in your clinic lobby. Make sure someone on staff (or a partner practitioner) is able to answer questions.
