I was introduced to Reiki 12 years back by my cat after his almost miraculous brush with Reiki. You can read more about my journey here.

I have seen Reiki work wonders with animals who are going through a physical or emotional crisis. It helps counter the initial distress and discomfort that comes with physical and emotional ailments. When I see a cat in despair, when I am waiting for an appointment with the vet or taking one of the cats to the vet, or when a client comes with a new cat or dog who needs to be integrated with the rest of the household and when they are nearing Rainbow Bridge – these are the moments when the compassionate healing power of Reiki can come to rescue.


Frequently Asked Questions

Reiki is a very simple technique to learn and is not dependent on one having any prior experience with healing, meditation or any other kind of training. It has been successfully learned by over one million people from all walks of life, both young and old. All that is needed is an openness.

In Usui Reiki, there are 3 levels.

In Level 1, the student learns about an introduction to Reiki, the lineage along with the 5 precepts. On completion the student will be able to use Reiki for personal healing and will also be able to offer Reiki to other animals and humans.

In Level 2, the student gets a turbo-charge and learns the Reiki symbols and their meanings. The student is then able to offer Reiki over distance sessions and also support another animal or human during an end-of-life transition.

In Level 3, training is provided to evolve into a Reiki teacher who can in turn teach others and carry the lineage forward.

The Reiki involved here is the same as the traditional Usui Reiki. The specialization of Animal Reiki involves the added wisdom of knowing how to work in partnership with the animals as the healing process and respect their unique sensitivities. In Animal Reiki, we let the animals teach us how to hold space for them as they heal themselves. This article explains the need for specializing in Animal Reiki vs traditional forms of Reiki.

Allow Reiki to transform your life too, just as it changed mine.
