Reiki (pronounced Ray-key) is two Japanese words, Rei and Ki meaning spiritually guided life energy commonly known as Universal Life Energy.

Reiki practitioners use a “laying on hands” technique that is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through our bodies. If a pet’s life force energy is low then they are more likely to get sick or feel stressed, and if it is high, they are more likely to be healthy and happy. Reiki energy brings about deep relaxation, destroys energy blockages, detoxifies the system ad provides new vitality. Vital energy that is unbalanced in the body becomes restored.

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of healing that can relieve pain, boost the immune system and relieve acute problems. Chronic illnesses may take a series of treatments depending on the specific nature of the disease.

At Chicago Animal Rehab, our technicians often combine massage and Reiki to enhance the healing process in your pet.
