Animal Reiki In Newquay

Cornwall, UK

Reiki is a Japanese word meaning universal life energy. The universe and the world around us is filled with endless amounts of energy. Reiki is natural healing energy and it flows through channels in a concentrated form. Reiki is the ancient art of healing and channels energy through the hands of the practitioner into the body of the receiver. Anyone can receive Reiki including animals.

Reiki can be used to help with physical, mental and behavioural problems as it effects the body, spirit and soul.


Reiki consists of hands-on or hands hovering in certain positions on the dog, through these hand positions they receive healing energy. Reiki can also be done distantly through healing meditations.

A side effect of Reiki, apart from helping them to heal, is that it can cement the bond between you and your dog more, which is never a bad thing! Reiki is intended to supplement other treatments your dog may be receiving, it is never intended to replace them. There is no replacement for veterinary care, Reiki is a line of loving, healing care that works alongside conventional medicine.


What Happens During An Animal Reiki Healing Session?

Reiki healing is a personal and individualised process. While there are formal aspects involving symbols and hand placements, the key lies in the intent and will to heal, delivered in a relaxed manner. The healing environment is vital, and the approach involves creating a friendly atmosphere with suitable music. Whether conducted at the recipient’s home, a dedicated space, or outdoors, the emphasis is on ensuring the recipient feels comfortable and consents to the treatment.

In Canine Reiki healing, consent from both the animal and the owner is required. The actual healing itself can take place through physical contact, working within the animal’s aura, or via distance healing, which involves meditation, visualization, and symbolism.

Can Reiki Help My Dog?

Reiki can assist with healing on various levels, encompassing the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of an individual. In cases of acute injuries involving tissues, muscles, and bones, Reiki can speed up the healing process.

For chronic illnesses, the healing journey is more extended and may need more Reiki sessions. In instances of terminal illnesses where reversing the disease’s course is not possible, Reiki can offer other benefits such as pain relief, improved quality of life, comfort, understanding, peace of mind, and acceptance. It can aid the spirit in a serene transition.

Is Reiki Religious?

Reiki and Animal Reiki are not based on any specific religion and do not require a particular belief system. The only requirement is the willingness to accept help. Reiki is a form of hands-on healing that can be applied regardless of distance or beliefs.

Am I Covered By My Dogs Insurance?

More and more animal insurance companies are covering alternative and complimentary therapies, but you would need to check with your insurance provider first.

Can Reiki be done at the same time as conventional veterinary treatment?

Yes, Reiki does not replace conventional vet treatment, but it does assist in healing and also aids relaxation.

Are you insured?

Yes, Houndology is fully insured; please feel free to ask to see a copy of our insurance certificate.

  • I was recommended to Houndology by a friend as our pitbulls have both been suffering medical issues and anxiety at times. It was incredible to see the calming effect that the reiki had on them and after a couple of sessions I swear they seem more confident and self assured. Overall a really positive experience and I'd recommend without a doubt.
