Healing Energy

This morning I had the opportunity to take Maggie for a session of Reiki.  A local Reiki practitioner is working on her level 3 Reiki and has a special interest in Reiki and animals.  She was offering Reiki sessions to help her get experience working on animals, rather than just on people.  Maggie enjoyed her session and really relaxed while being worked on.

Reiki is a Japanese word that means "universal life energy".  Reiki is a gentle technique that promotes healing and energy balance within the body.  For more information on Reiki, this website gives a lot of good information: Animal Reiki.  

I hope Maggie gets some benefit from her session and I hope a lot of healing energy went to her broken toe.  Monday we go back to the vet for another set of X-rays, and I am really hoping to see an improvement.


  1. very interesting Kim....I am all for trying different things....maybe Tate would enjoy a Reiki session.

  2. Jolene, if you want the name and number of the lady Maggie saw, let me know.

  3. This is interesting. I wonder if it would help older Berners with hip and joint issues feel better? Something for me to check out (heck, maybe even I could use it!)
    Thanks for your always-interesting blog!
