From Animal Reiki Practitioner Graduates!

"I really appreciated the info regarding treatment forms, professional ethics info and business information. I would definitely recommend this course and I am happy to have a more formal way of demonstrating some educational experience! I was REALLY happy to find out that not only was there such a thing as an Animal Reiki Course available, but that it could be taken online!" Linda

"The Animal Reiki Practitioner course was great! It was full of the knowledge I need to continue working with animals. Great handouts to help you along - I printed many of them out and put them in a binder for easy access during a session." Tanya - Alberta

An Equine Practitioner Student!

"I have started watching the videos on horses. I did two sessions on my mare because she has always been nervous... and wow her changes are drastic, even the horse trainer stated that they do not know what has happened in the way that she has calmed down... I thought this was nice to share with you. She will be going to a show this weekend, and I'm going to do some Reiki on her, as I know travels stress her out." Sofia

"Of all the courses I've taken over the years, for work and for personal growth, this has been (by far) the most powerful and I feel it's opened a door to a whole new world for me and all the animals on my farm. I think this training is just the beginning of where I'm going with Reiki."  

Jane A. - British Columbia, Canada

"This program has been transformative at so many levels. My pets are happier and healthier, my sense of personal accomplishment has been incredible and my Reiki has deepened immeasurably. I have made new friends, both animal and human, which I hadn't anticipated. My overall sense of empathy and intuition have grown enormously."


"I want to thank you so much for YOUR support and attention through this process, and the opportunity to grow. Your words of encouragement have meant so much. I will cherish, remember and respect this process every time I look at my certificate. It has been such a gift."

S. Rose -  Ontario, Canada

"I really liked the feel of the course. I loved how it felt like I was sitting in a classroom listening to a teacher as she went through the presentation slides. But I was able to do it from the comfort of the living room :) The dowloadable attachments are also excellent so I will be able to refer back to them if needing a refresher."

Bailey C. - Ontario, Canada


We care as much as you, and that is why we are meeting now! Our instructors have pets or larger animals in their care that they adore and we have also been concerned for the welfare of animals around the world. With Reiki you can offer your love and support from where you are sitting right now to an animal far away or while you are sitting holding your own beautiful family pet.


Karen Bigelow commented on a link The Canadian School of Naturotherapies and Spiritual Development shared.

Karen wrote:  "My dog had a big tumor growing out of her foot and was scheduled for sugery to remove part of her foot. She a Reiki session before and the tumor got smaller and in 10 days it was gone."

"I was shocked when I first noticed it was getting smaller and no longer bleeding. she was a border collie so I wondered if she would lie still while the woman did her session but she settled right in and stayed quiet for the treatment. She only had 2 sessions...the vet suggested she have a second session once it started to reduce."

Assignment Example:  Why I chose to study animal Reiki!  

By Lisa Polegatto

"Animals have always been important in my life. I can always remember having a pet from a young age, mostly cats and dogs. I always wanted a horse, although I never had one, I had friends that did and had exposure to horses through them.   At first I recall we had may dogs, one at a time, as a young girl growing up in the country. Then it was time for cats in my life. My son loves animals too. We had cats, dogs and a rabbit when he was young. It was when my son was ten years old that we rescued our current furry friend, "Whiskey".  Her name is ironic since I am allergic to liquor. Thankfully I am not allergic to my dog. Whiskey is a Golden Retriever who has a golden heart and teaches me much about unconditional love, compassion and caring.  Having allergies has meant I have taken allergy attacks of which Whiskey has been a great help with keeping me aware and awake at times when I was going into reaction. She is a blessing to me and I want to help her the many ways she helps me."
"After being in a car accident a few years ago and going through many conventional healing methods, it was time to try alternative healing methods. In doing research and discovering how to heal yourself, I came across Reiki. I had heard of Reiki before but didn't realize you could do Reiki with Animals. I thought it only dealt with people. While that interested me, I find people can be so judgemental.  Once I found out I could spend time with animals instead to do Reiki I was hooked. I started reading and learning and haven't looked back. Reiki has also provided me with stress relief and inner wisdom. I work at a highly demanding job which leaves me pretty tired out by the end of the week helping people."
"Reiki is a way I can spend time with animals and re-energize myself in the process. It is a win-win situation. When daily self treatment is complete for me, it is then time for treatment on my Golden Retriever. It is a great way to strengthen my connection with my furry friend. She has been my teacher in this journey before I realized what journey I was on.  I also do Animal Reiki with my local Wildlife Park so I have many animal teachers. Being humble allows me to learn more from them. The more time I spend with animals the more time I want to spend with them."
"I am truly grateful for having found Animal Reiki at the time in my life when it was needed most. It has opened my heart more to allow more love in in ways that I didn't anticipate and truly appreciate."
