Yes, it’s true. Giving your dog a massage is also good for you. Science has shown that petting animals actually improves the health of humans. It reduces stress, lowers blood pressure and elevates our moods. This is why so many pet owners tend to be happier people! This is also why therapy animals are so important – science has shown that petting animals greatly improves the mental and physical health of people, regardless of whether or not they want to admit it.
Animals don’t always tell us what we want to hear but they do tell us what we need to hear. As an experienced animal communicator, Gillian possesses a unique ability to talk with animals — hearing, seeing and understanding an animal’s thoughts and feelings, and can deeply tune in to what an animal is trying to express. While animal communication is not a substitute for traditional veterinary care, it can be used to enrich relationships and bonds between animals and their owners. It can be used as a form of distance or in-person healing and can be applied to many situations including health problems, general check-ins, improving pet-owner bonds, behavioral issues, aging, end-of-life decisions and much more.

It’s also helpful to let dogs know they can take as much or as little Reiki as they wish to ensure they know they have a choice as to how much Reiki they receive. If the dog approaches the practitioner and appears to want to be touched, the practitioner can place her hands in a series of positions that are comforting to the dog. You don’t need a timer to let you know when the session is over. Dogs are not bashful about getting up and leaving when they’ve taken in the amount of energy they need.
Using Reiki as a complimentary therapy at a veterinarian’s office is an excellent way to help ease the increased stress level your dog may experience while at the office. Reiki can also help your dog heal emotionally and physically from any treatments that may have to be performed once you return home. If your dog has had surgery, Reiki can help the overall healing process. I work with several veterinarians, both remotely and at animal hospitals, to assist dogs during the office visit and after the dog returns home. When I perform a Reiki session at a veterinarian’s office or off-site location, I will try to make the room as comfortable as possible. I dim the lights, provide a comfortable bed for them to lie in if they wish and maybe softly play meditation music. It is important that everyone is open to the energy healing and remain relaxed. This includes the dog, their human companion and me.
Canine Massage Helps Calm Coco: Many of us know how stressful it is to have work done on our homes. Sometimes, it can be even worse for our pets. Already a bit cautious, Coco was quite anxious after living through a recent home remodel. “Gillian has been amazing with our dog Coco. He is very cautious around people and it takes him a while to warm up to them. Also, Coco has been disturbed by a recent home remodel. Even under these circumstances, Gillian managed to get through to Coco, gaining his trust. At the first appointment, Coco would not let Gillian touch his paws or back half, but through communication and sensitivity, she made great progress and is now able to fully massage Coco. Thanks to Gillian, we see positive changes in Coco’s disposition. She also gave us some tips on how to continue to calm Coco.” Source: https://fourpawsholistictherapy.com/.
