The benefits of Reiki for you and your pet
Those of you following Tyrone’s story have probably seen that he has a Reiki Master. But like a lot of people, you may not really know what Reiki is. Some people think it is weird and hokey and doesn’t work. To those I say, if you witnessed one of Tyrone’s treatments from beginning to end you may just change your mind.
When one of Tyrone’s treatments starts he is usually not receptive of the energy or the treatment and will often move away or be in a very “closed” position, however by the end of his treatment he is usually stretched out and kneading.(see slideshow below)
So what exactly is Reiki you ask? Reiki is a very specific form of energy healing, in which hands are placed just off the body or lightly touching the body, as in “laying on of hands.” Reiki can also be done “long-distance,” as a form of prayer. In a Reiki session, the practitioner is seeking to transmit Universal Life Energy to the client. The intention is to create deep relaxation, to help speed healing, reduce pain, and decrease other symptoms you may be experiencing.
Ok now you may be thinking, mmmhmmm sounds a little wacky to me. So let’s break it down just a little. If you know anything about science or physiology you will know that all tissues and organs produce specific magnetic pulsations, which have come to be known as biomagnetic fields. The traditional electrical recordings, such as the electrocardiogram and electroencephalogram, are now being complemented by biomagnetic recordings, called magnetocardiograms and magnetoencephalograms. In essence we are energy! So when you recognize that fact, the idea of balancing the bodies energies that are “out of whack” does not seem so crazy. Additionally since we are energy that is what gives us the ability to use our own energies to assist others through Reiki, which in literal terms means universal energy.
I personally have had Reiki treatments. The treatment is relaxing and you will usually feel heat generated, even though the person may not even be touching you or touching you very lightly. Reiki is now beginning performed in some of the top hospitals to help in healing and in comforting patients. Many cancer centers are now calling on Reiki Masters to help their patients deal with the devastating effects of Chemotherapy. Dr Oz is also a huge proponent for Reiki, his wife is a Reiki Master.
Reiki can be performed on all animals. Cats, dogs, horses, Humans etc. The reactions are varied according to Tyrone’s Reiki Master, Luann Liberatori. She said some animals accept the treatment immediately, yet others show hesitance. She explains that sometimes the feeling of the strong energy from the practitioner can be a little scary for a patient that is not familiar with the treatment. Luann explains that usually the patient will begin to feel the benefits from the balancing of the energy and then begin to relax and accept the treatment.
Hopefully, I have enlightened some of you to the benefits of this alternative healing treatment and you may even look into it for yourself or your pet. Those of you who are still shaking your heads, all I ask is that you have an open mind and perhaps try it yourself before you simply turn to a chemically produced prescription to “cure” you. Take a cue from Ty, he KNOWS the treatments help him and so do we.
