Looking for Pet Reiki provider? Meet Gillian, a certified Canine Therapeutic Massage Therapist (CTMT) Advanced Canine Massage Therapist (ACMT) and a member of International Association of Animal Massage & Body Works (IAAMB). She also serves as a dog care and enrichment volunteer for Freedom Service Dogs, helping ease kennel stress by providing energy healing and massage, along with play time, puzzles and grooming.
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.
Certified Karuna and Reiki Master, Gillian Edwards, skillfully invites universal life force energy to pass through her into the animal—to open blocks that cause illness, fear and emotional rigidity. Her years of experience in practicing Reiki on both humans and animals, provide a source of deep relaxation, stress reduction and healing through balance. While Gillian stresses that Reiki should never replace conventional veterinary medicine, she can provide healing energy to complement traditional and alternative animal medical treatment, as well as help with an animal’s emotional and spiritual well-being.

Reiki is also smart enough to know how much energy, making it impossible to overdose on energy or otherwise cause harm. Think of Reiki for dogs as a natural supplement, kind of like daily vitamins that just so happen to be packed with nutrients.
Another practical use for Reiki is to assist with separation anxiety that a dog may experience when you’re away from home and they’re left at home or boarded away from their home. Many of my clients use my Reiki services in this fashion, even if their dog is doing well otherwise. As a side benefit, knowing that their dog is calm while they are away, it helps ease the mind of the human companion while they’re traveling. When they arrive home, they find their dog to be well-adjusted and at ease. No longer do they worry about the dog’s routine being changed or any unexpected behaviors transpiring while they’re away. Providing Reiki on a regular basis for your dog will help your dog stay emotionally, mentally and physically strong and happy. Please keep in mind that Reiki is typically used as a complimentary therapy and is not a substitute for veterinary care if your dog is sick or injured.
Massage Works Wonders for Wilma: Former street dog Wilma had trouble calming down and relaxing when meeting new people, greeting guests and when experiencing new situations. “In January, 2017 Wilma was found with her two surviving puppies, living on the streets in Amarillo, Texas. All were brought to CO, and I adopted her in early February. We’ve been working on building confidence in new situations and building social skills with new people. While Wilma is benefiting from canine massage in that she’s learning to relax and be calm, Gillian’s work helped in other ways as well. Wilma has become much more confident, able to spend time with Gillian alone, without me and the other dogs present. Regular sessions have also helped Wilma be more confident in other situations where people are present in my home. On Thanksgiving, she actually jumped into someone’s lap. And she is engaged and excited to see new people, no treats necessary! Dog massage therapy has been a fabulous experience for me and Wilma.” Source: https://fourpawsholistictherapy.com/.
