Healing can be very beneficial and effective in helping to prevent ill-health and assist in improving well-being both physically and emotionally for us and our pets. It can be used in conjunction with other complementary therapies or alongside medical treatment. One of the main differences between animals and humans is animals don’t relive stressful events over and over again. It is widely known that people can influence the outcomes of interventions due to their expectations about the results but our animals don’t have expectations and therefore favourably respond to healing without interfering in the process.
Healing is a natural process of restoring health to any diseased or damaged living being; it has been practised for thousands of years in all ancient civilisations. Unlike Western medicine, it addresses all aspects of the recipient not just the presenting symptoms. Healing modalities such as Reiki can be delivered by lightly touching the recipient’s body or holding the hands slightly above the body. Other forms of healing such as Acupuncture uses needles, but at the end of the day, the method of healing it doesn’t really matter, they’re all removing blockages, balancing energy and encouraging self-healing.
As we know, all living beings have a physical anatomy but they also have an energy anatomy, more commonly referred to the aura, or the bio-field that surrounds them. There are seven major chakra systems and several minor ones in the body; there are also subtle energies that are known as our emotional, mental and spiritual bodies. History shows that these subtle energies not only exist but also influence physical, emotional and mental health. Life experiences, trauma, illness and the reactions to events, can result in energy imbalances that result in diseases within the body. This causes the chakras to go out of balance and in turn weakens the auric field, this can result in the manifestation of physical and emotional illnesses.
