What Is Reiki?

Reiki is not a substitute for regular veterinary or medical care.

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 Universal Energy
(Life Force) for the purposes of healing.

The healing takes place on all levels, physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Reiki is both powerful and gentle and can be used as an aid in treating any type of illness.

We are all, animal and human, alive because this Universal Life Force flows through us. Reiki works with this Life Force to help with the natural healing process within all living things.

Reiki can be used alone or as a complimentary therapy along with traditional western and veterinary medicine.

The roots of Reiki lie in ancient origins and were rediscovered by Dr. Mikao Usui. Reiki was brought to and nurtured in the United States by Mrs. Hawayo Takata.

The principles of Reiki are a good guidepost for all of us to follow:

            Just for today, do not worry.

Just for today, do not anger.

Honor your parents, teachers and elders.

Earn your living honestly.

Show gratitude to every living thing.

Dr. Mikao Usui
