How does veterinary reiki work?
The technique of veterinary reiki is not very different from that applied to humans: the transmission of vital energy is done with the imposition of the hands of the reikian - that is, someone trained and who has taken a reiki course - on the animal's chakras. Chakras, in turn, are energy centers that every living being has, and it is through this energy center that the so-called universal energy will passchanneled by the reikian, according to Mariana.
This therapy is considered very beneficial for the well-being of pets and can be applied, even in cases of illness or pain. In addition, healthy animals can also adhere to veterinary reiki, see?

If your four-legged friend is suffering from a health problem or is very agitated and stressed, reiki in dogs and cats can help. "Reiki balances the vital energy of the physical, mental and spiritual body, so health and well-being improve," explains the veterinarian.

It works as a miracle cure.complementary therapy, but should never replace the medical treatment indicated by the veterinarian (which is usually done with medicines and other procedures).
To help take care of cats and dogs, veterinary reiki can be applied whenever the guardian feels it is necessary: once a week, every 15 days or even once a month. It will depend a lot on the physical, mental and spiritual state of the animal. But it is worth remembering that it is important not to force your pet to do anything it does not want to do. Usually, the behavior of cats and dogs changes when theyare about to receive reiki: because they are sensitive, they are more predisposed to the treatment.

Reiki also works at a distance and has the same effectiveness as the technique of reiki.face-to-face.
