Hi Kev here,
For the last 17 years I’ve been riding the beautiful black shire cross that I’m human to.
She is 23 now and slowing down and gets a few aches and pains.
I heard of Reiki some years ago and recently about Equine Reiki and how it helps horses recover faster, saving owners anxiety and costs after injury and how it can help older horses with aches and pains.
So I went on the Reiki Level 1 and 2 courses and I now practise Reiki on my horse and others, you can learn more at EquineReiki.co.uk.
What sort of horses need Reiki healing?
All horses can benefit from Reiki healing energy.
Any horse that has been traumatised for example through injury, accident, illness, bad handling, abuse, neglect and so on, and no matter how long ago, can benefit.
As Reiki healing aims to restore balance to the energy field and discharge negative energy.
Disturbed energy can lead to disease and disorder and all physical illness will have an emotional element to it.
Pain and stress are very upsetting for a horse and lead to, so-called, behavioural problems.
Reiki can be given to horses to help with numerous conditions including :
- joint problems
- musculoskeletal conditions
- new environment and/or change of owner
- disease and illness
- skin conditions
- horse fitness
- pregnant mares
- post birth mare and foal
- sick foals
- behavioural problems
- trauma mental, emotional and physical
- pre and post surgery
- immune system conditions
- stimulate cellular repair
- and for a peaceful passing at the end of the physical life
And of course the same applies to the human of the horse and I love providing Reiki for both Horse and Rider/Owner in the same session, it really relaxes the horse to be with its human and the bond is strengthened with a shared Reiki experience.
Reiki for you.
And as Reiki is energy it can be shared with humans, animals, plants and food!
