Will your dog like Reiki?.that is the question. Maybe you’ve seen Reiki on humans, where a healer’s hands hover over the person but don’t actually touch them. This might seem fascinating, but hands-hovering and hands-on Reiki are both acceptable forms. It may depend on the animal. You may have a new dog who is timid and fearful of touch, or you might be helping at a shelter with a new, skittish arrival: hands-hovering may be the best way to start. If it’s your dog, or one who obviously loves touch, the light hands-on application is welcome.

Getting a feel of your dog’s body is beneficial when it comes to early detection. You’ll be able to feel wounds that you can’t see through your dog’s coat, or any lumps and bumps that might be developing inside your dog’s body. These things can be felt before seen, so taking notes when you massage your pooch and noting what’s abnormal will help your veterinarian determine the issue. Early detection is critically important in treating many illnesses and massage will certainly help.
Reiki energy can be given to your dog in regularly scheduled intervals or as needed. Because it is a gentle and non-invasive energy modality, it can be used safely with any animal no matter the age, size or breed. Recently I provided Reiki for my client’s dog that was suffering from a chronic ear infection. The veterinarian prescribed some ear ointment that needed to be placed in both ears of their dog twice a day for two weeks. This can be a real challenge when a dog is not feeling well and doesn’t want you to touch it, let alone place a greasy ointment in its ears. I provided Reiki for their dog each day in order to support the dog’s physical healing as well as to provide a calming energy for their dog. This allowed their dog to stay calm during each of the twice-daily ointment treatments and their dog accepted them doing the treatments by lying still during these times.
Massage Works Wonders for Wilma: Former street dog Wilma had trouble calming down and relaxing when meeting new people, greeting guests and when experiencing new situations. “In January, 2017 Wilma was found with her two surviving puppies, living on the streets in Amarillo, Texas. All were brought to CO, and I adopted her in early February. We’ve been working on building confidence in new situations and building social skills with new people. While Wilma is benefiting from canine massage in that she’s learning to relax and be calm, Gillian’s work helped in other ways as well. Wilma has become much more confident, able to spend time with Gillian alone, without me and the other dogs present. Regular sessions have also helped Wilma be more confident in other situations where people are present in my home. On Thanksgiving, she actually jumped into someone’s lap. And she is engaged and excited to see new people, no treats necessary! Dog massage therapy has been a fabulous experience for me and Wilma.” Source: https://fourpawsholistictherapy.com/.
