There are so many benefits to reiki for you or your animal. This picture above illustrates the major benefits for people. Some of these apply to animals as well. Reiki can also help with sleep, blood pressure, aids in breaking of addictions, helps the body to detoxify, helps to decrease pain, and raises the vibrational frequency of the body.
Animals can react differently to reiki than humans. Here are some examples: animals showing fearful behaviours like separation anxiety or constant grooming will experience a reduction or cessation in that behaviour. Rescue animals for example, can sometimes have difficulty fitting into a new home. Reiki can help them feel more calm and secure in their new environment. Reiki has also helped when an animal feels physical discomfort, such as arthritis, itchy skin and etc.
