Does Reiki/ Healing touch therapy work on animals?


Energy work is based on similar principles as acupuncture, believing that energy flows in the body (called Chi in acupuncture) and when this energy becomes blocked or stagnant, we experience health and emotional crisis.  Like humans, animals have a subtle body and energy field and benefit from a positive energy flow.

When cats and dogs are surrounded by stressful situations (including pain), energetic blockages or diminished movement can accumulate, causing imbalance and/or congestion in their energetic body that is reflected in the physical body in a wide range of symptoms.

Common Symptoms include:

  • fears/phobias

  • separation anxiety

  • trauma response

  • nervousness/general anxiety

  • aggression

  • travel anxiety and motion sickness 

  • stress and irritability

  • grief over the loss of a person or animal friend

  • phobias, obsessions and compulsions

  • depression

  • musculoskeletal issues

  • decreased mobility

  • nervous system disorders

What to expect during your pet's HTA Session:

I will come to your pet's home and work with you and your pet. There is an initial assessment and then various hand placements on your pet, depending on what your pet needs the most focus on. You will be asked to hold your pet or sit near your pet during the session. Sessions are approximately 45 minutes.

After a review of your pet's information and specific needs, I schedule an appointment in your home where your pet is most comfortable. 

Human Energy Sessions Available

Often our pets are a mirror of ourselves. If you have anxiety, stress, depression, or suffer from physical or mental stress, your pets or other family members may be off-balance and also show symptoms of those issues. Energy work for people is very helpful to work through or overcome the same issues your pet experiences. Find out how Energy Therapy can help you be your best person each day.
