Animal Reiki Practitioner, Continuing Education Certificate

Animal Reiki Practitioners are animal service providers – veterinarians, animal trainers/behaviorists, animal acupuncturists, pet groomers, dog kennel staff, and animal daycare staff - who use Reiki to help in the physical, mental/emotional, and spiritual healing of animals.  Reiki is a non-invasive Japanese holistic energy healing system used to support energy balance, harmony and 'hands-on' healing.  This may include using client intake, consent, session and consent forms, and working with different breeds of animals.
