Reiki May Be A Natural Way to Heal Your Own Dog

Reiki for Dogs


Reiki and dogs has had me sold since my first experience working with Reiki Fur Babies.  Rodrigo was limping and I wanted to give him some relief until we could get him to the veterinarian.  The results were astounding and today, Rodrigo is a happy, active dog who takes a daily supplement for joint support that has given us our happy dog back!

I’ve since used it on Sydney as well and have found it be beneficial for pain, anxiety, and digestive issues with our dogs.

What is Reiki for dogs?

Reiki (pronounced Ray-key) for pets is a form of spiritual healing that helps harmonize the mind, body and soul of your pet. It can be used as a treatment for relaxation as well as a tool for releasing negative emotions and limitations. Reiki is a safe, painless, and non-invasive practice that doesn’t interfere with any medical treatment. Reiki addresses physical, emotional, mental and spiritual imbalances. This healing art is an effective delivery system. The Reiki practitioner serves as a vessel that supplies healing energies where they are most needed.

Reiki doesn’t cause stress, discomfort or pain yet yields powerful results.  For healthy dogs, Reiki…

  • maintains health
  • provides peace and contentment
  • can treat ailments that may be currently inhibiting your pet whether you notice it or not
  • can reduce stress, relieve pain, headaches, stomach upsets, asthma, back problems, sinus, respiratory, canine hip dysplasia, anxiety and more
  • can help with abused animals and neglected animals.

Animals respond faster than people and positive results are often seen in a shorter period of time.  For dying animals, Reiki is a gentle way to provide comfort to your pet and keep them from being afraid and anxious.  Because Reiki is a healing energy, it will never harm you or your pet.

What is remote healing?

When I had my Reiki sessions, our dogs would immediately relax.  I was kind of cool to know when a session was happening.  I also so immediate improvement in our dogs.  It was a perfect way to offer our dogs relief until our veterinarian appointment.

“There are no time nor space restrictions to distant Reiki. Healing can be sent to any place in the world. Reiki distant healing treatments as very effective and can be even preferable. Some animals may live too far away or fearful of strangers, elderly or close to death. But they absorb Reiki distantly. Distant treatments are cost effective for the working owner and quicker to schedule. Distant Reiki offers exactly the same benefits as hands on. Distant Reiki treatment can provide relief from surgery, emotional healing, behavioral issues and ease transition to death. After a distant treatment results can be seen soon.”

How much will a Reiki session for my dog cost?

The price range of working with a quality Reiki practitioner ranges from $75 to $125.  I like working with the ladies of Reiki Fur Babies, because they understand my love of and bond with our dogs, they have the same love their their pets, and I’ve worked with the in the past and it works.


  1. Reiki is an awesome therapy and can even be done at a distance. It sounds all hocus pocus and nearly impossible if you’ve never experienced it, but for humans and animals alike, it’s 100% worth a shot. Thanks for this look at a very worthwhile alternative therapy.

    • Too true Diane, I have been sending Reiki to animal and human clients all over the world for many years and have received some great feedback. The great thing is that everyone has the ability to give Reiki to their own dogs which is the very reason why I developed my quick and easy home study course. Thanks for taking the time to read my article. Rob

  2. I love alternative therapies for my dogs (and me!). Thanks for an excellent article.

    • Hi Dee & Murphy. I’m glad you liked the article. Of course I can only agree with you that Reiki is a great complimentary therapy. It works alongside all other therapies and is very gentle and relaxing. Most of my clients human or animal fall asleep during a session. Bliss :-) Thanks for reading my article and taking the time to post a reply. I’m looking forward to giving many more dog owners ‘the gift of healing’ during 2013. Rob

  3. I have long known Reiki and other forms of on hands healing for humans but until know had never considered trying it on my Labrador.
    Will treat him tonight and see if it makes a a difference on his elbows.
    Thanks for the great article.


    • Best of luck, Mike!
