Kathleen Prasad is founder of Animal Reiki Source. She is a Reiki Master/Teacher and author and dedicated her teaching career to Animal Reiki full-time in 2002. Reiki cannot harm your pet and is non-intrusive. It can be given hands-on or a short distance away. You cannot give your pet too much Reiki and is used to heal, relieve stress and in healthy pets, maintains health. Reiki energy goes where it is needed most, whether a physical or emotional healing is needed. In fact, the Reiki practitioner “lets go” without expectations to let Reiki do its work. The practitioner’s function is to be a channel for the energy to flow. Reiki is a great system to use for shelter and rescue pets. There is more to Animal Reiki if you would like to learn more.
