Dog Massage and Reiki
Dog massage is “the touch of the physical and energetic body with the intention and purpose of healing.” Massage can improve your dogs’ physical/emotional balance holistically. By working on their muscles and skin, it increases the circulation of blood and lymph to help them heal and ease physical fatigues quickly. It also works to rebalance the energy flow that affects their emotional/mental state. Positive interaction with a trained pet massage practitioner can enhance your dog’s physical and mental well-being.
Reiki along with massage when needed. Reiki is another energy-based technique that promotes stress reduction and relaxation, as well as physical healing, by regaining the balance of natural positive energy. Reiki can be done with or without touching the dog, with no harmful effects. This allows the dog to benefit from her session even if your dog is afraid of being touched by a person.
Each session can be tailored for your dog with only massage, only Reiki, or a combination of both as you and your dog prefer and/or need. A session would be from a few minutes to about 30 minutes, depending on your dog’s acceptance and need.
Massage and Reiki are not, nor are they intended to be a substitute for traditional veterinary care. They are complementary forms of health care, and massage/Reiki practitioners are not allowed to do any medical diagnoses and/or treatments. The client should regularly consult a veterinarian in matters relating to his or her dog’s health and especially in regard to any symptoms, which may require diagnosis or medical attention. If you have any concerns regarding the efficacy of any of the massage/Reiki practices specifically for your dog, please consult with your veterinarian or qualified animal health care practitioner before or after taking a session, if necessary.
For first-time clients
Please don’t get upset if your dog doesn’t look completely relaxed for the first time. It does not necessarily mean that your dog hates a massage/Reiki or doesn’t benefit from it. Most dogs need time to learn about a practitioner and a new experience in their own ways. Once they know the practitioner as well as the massage/Reiki, they will get to look more comfortable and settled. Give them time!
