Reiki for Animals

Animals are wonderfully open to energy healing and so it is important to let them be your guide during the session.

Hand placements are only used if the animal initiates contact. No restraint is needed and the animal is free to move around at will as the session unfolds. It's not unusual for the animal to initially become excited, then settle and relax over the course of the session.


A typical animal session will be around 45 minutes, usually in their home environment where they are generally more comfortable.

Catherine will begin by talking with the pet caregiver to gain some background knowledge.

She will then begin reiki meditation, inviting the animal to receive energy healing and allow the animal to guide her through the session.

If there are other animals in the house there is generally no need to remove them from the room unless there is a specific reason or request.

Pet caregivers are very welcome to be present during all sessions and also feel the benefit of the energy healing.

Distance healing is offered after the first physical (or virtual) session.

Catherine follows the 'Let Animals Leadmethod of Animal Reiki developed by Kathleen Prasad.

Reiki can be a beautiful way to help your pet transition over the rainbow bridge at the end of their life. This healing energy can be a comforting shared moment for the animal and their caregiver.
