What is Reiki?
… soothe anxiousness
… release tension
… support a body’s own healing abilities
… complement other healing modalities.
Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. The term “Reiki” is composed of two Japanese words: “Rei,” which means “universal” or “God’s wisdom,” and “ki,” or “life energy.” You may have heard the Chinese terms “chi” or “qi” or the Indian term “prana,” which are referring to the same life energy.
Reiki practitioners are trained to work with an individual’s ki, or chi, through light touch. Reiki can remove blockages to the individual’s ki, helping it to flow more freely – thus releasing tension and contributing to one’s overall health. This is true whether the individual has four legs or two.
Why Reiki for Horses?
Horses are highly sensitive animals, and they use those sensitivities to communicate – and to survive. They are highly attuned to their environments, and their health and well-being can be affected by their diet, their physical activity, and the emotional atmosphere around them. Just like humans, only they are more aware of the sensations related to these things – partly because their minds don’t go off on tangents the way ours do, and partly because they don’t rely on verbal language the way we do.
