Kind Karma® Animal Reiki Course Overview

During this course you will learn how to use Kind Karma® Animal Reiki, a noninvasive, holistic therapy.  You will notice animals are very sensitive to energy, and love receiving Reiki!​

You can perform Reiki sessions with animals using hands-on methods or from a distance. Both methods are effective. This non-invasive therapy makes it ideal for working with all kinds of animals, from domestic pets to wildlife to sheltered animals.​

Reiki is non-invasive and will help healing occur where it's needed most.  The Reiki animal practitioner does not need to know the symptoms that the animal is experiencing in order for an effective session to be performed, although it's quite helpful to know as much as you can when working with any kind of animal.  Animal Reiki can also be performed successfully from a distance, making it a safe therapy for both the animal and practitioner.  ​

Energetically, it's important the animal feels it's in control of the session.  They can be in the location they choose and do not need to be confined or restrained (unless necessary).  With multiple sessions, animals will refine their perception of the specific frequency and will begin to seek out a session when they see the practitioner. ​

Anyone with an interest in deepening their connection with animals, will benefit from this course. If you already work with animals such as a groomer, trainer and technician or work in an environment with animals such as a shelter or rescue facilitator, you will find Reiki to be a perfect fit within your existing practice. Although Reiki is simple, it's profound. ​
