Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a gentle hands-on healing technique. The word comes from two Japanese words, Rei and Ki meaning Universal Life Force. Simply put, Reiki is the channeling of energy for the purposes of healing. The healing can take place on many levels, including physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Reiki is both powerful and gentle and can be used as an aid in treating pain and illnesses.
Animals are usually very open to healing energy. Using Reiki with them can accelerate their healing process, ease pain, improve or help to continue their quality of life.
