Reiki and Your Pet

Reiki and Your Pet

Reiki is a Japanese healing art that can be translated as spiritual energy healing. This practice can compassionately, gently support, and ease the suffering of animals and their caretakers.

Reiki helps our furry family members, as well as ourselves, live more healthy, balanced, and relaxed lives. It is a safe and gentle complement to conventional Western medicine, Chinese medicine, herbal treatment, and all forms of wellness. It unifies healing touch and intention to connect to our animals to help bring them to optimal wellness.

One of the largest benefits of Reiki healing for animals is that it can be done from a distance as often, animals are uncomfortable with strangers near to or touching them. Therefore, it can be done anywhere across the globe!

Other benefits can include; providing comfort and relaxation, relief of pain, fear and anxiety, accelerating healing following illness or surgery, it strengthens the immune system, it increases bonding and trust between you and your pet as well as promoting overall health and wellness.

Reiki is ideal for animals for many reasons. Some of which include; it’s effectiveness on addressing physical, behavioral and emotional problems. It heals the origin or root of the problems, it is noninvasive yet powerful, Reiki always heals on some level, even if an immediate outward result is not noticed and it can heal difficult situations such as stress in the home or the transition from life to death.

Dr. Lisa Lapwing, has been a practicing Reiki Master since 2013 and is the Founder of The Speckled Toe Bean. She has also been a Doctor of Oriental Medicine and Acupuncture since 2011, which she does for her human counterparts. Utilizing Reiki for her animals to manage behavioral issues, she quickly realized how beneficial it is to their overall wellness and to also assist in their healing when ill conditions arise. Dr. Lisa goes into a meditative state so she can compassionately and lovingly support your furry family member’s healing process be it physical, mental, or behavioral. If Dr. Lisa and you believe it is more beneficial to have the treatment take place in the animal’s home, a travel fee will be added to the regular session fee.

Treatments usually last around 15-20 minutes and cost $55 per session.
