About Equine Reiki

equine reikiWhat is Reiki 
Everything, whether animate or inanimate, is made of molecules. Molecules are comprised of atoms made of charged particles called neutrons, protons and electrons. So it makes sense that everything on earth has an energy field around it and energy running through it.

Reiki means universal life force energy. Its roots come from Dr. Mikao Usui, a Christian minister in Japan who set out to understand how Jesus performed the miracle of healing. He discovered that Reiki provides a channel of energy for the purpose of healing.

It is important to point out that Reiki healing does not mean cure. A Reiki practitioner is a conduit – a means to deliver universal life force energy – to those who lack it, so they can strengthen themselves and become whole again. In short, it gives the body the energy it needs to do what it is designed to do – heal itself.

Through a series of attunements that take the Reiki practitioner from Reiki I and Reiki II, to Advanced Reiki and Reiki Master/Teacher level training, the practitioner becomes a conduit to deliver energy to the body. With practice and training the Reiki Master knows when the person has had enough and what to do next.

But the effectiveness of a Reiki session depends on two things: the experience and dedication of the Reiki Master, and how open the recipient is to receiving the energy.

How Reiki Helps Horses
The horse is one of the most spiritual creatures on earth and as such often experiences the maximum benefit from Reiki. During the initial stages of a Reiki treatment, horses become a bit antsy as they feel energy begin to flow, but soon they settle down and embrace it. Often, within minutes their eyes are half-shut, they yawn –   and some even fall asleep! A thorough session lasts an hour.

Reiki relaxes horses and that improves performance. Physically, the horse’s body relaxes and becomes more round, forward moving and balanced. The body is not as tight, so there is less physical strain and pain. As for behavioral problems, if pain is reduced the horse is less cranky, less aggressive and more willing to please. When both the horse and rider receive Reiki, they communicate better and perform better as a team.
