General Animal Reiki Articles

This page is the place for you to read about all things animal Reiki! You’ll find articles about Reiki’s healing benefits for shelter animals, how Reiki can help heal compassion fatigue in animal caregivers, and even how chocolate can teach us about animal Reiki! There are also several articles about what exactly animal Reiki “is,” including one written especially for vet techs. It’s not always easy to explain animal Reiki to others, but hopefully these articles will shed some clarity on animal Reiki’s meaning and help you in your next Reiki conversation. A common theme throughout many of these articles is the fact that Reiki starts with you, and radiates a beautiful peaceful and compassionate space that helps others to heal as well! CLICK HERE for a supportive audio course, “Heal Yourself, Heal Your Animals,” that will share important tips and powerful techniques for interspecies connection and healing.
