Animals play an important role in human lives. More than half of the US households have a dog or cat in their homes. And, 9 out of 10 Americans consider their pets as a part of the family. Love, companionship, affection, stress reliever – these are a few reasons that pets give on their owners. And when these furry friends get sick, this causes undue stress to pet owners.
So, imagine a healing method that is gentle and non-invasive. In which, it could address pain, injury, and illness; fasten recovery after surgery; and have an effect on fear, anxiety, aggression, depression, and trauma on your companion animals? These are a few benefits of energy healing not only to humans but to animals as well especially canines.

Utilized as an adjunct to other holistic therapies or conventional medical treatments, energy healing makes use of the metaphysical life force (also known as “energy” or “chi”) of canines. It focuses on the dog’s health holistic being—physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Its goal is to rebalance the life force of the pet that is in need of healing. If this safe, effective practice is done regularly, it can help to keep dogs healthy and well-balanced.
Why Our Pets Feel Stress
Although there are many forms of energy healing techniques available out there that are geared for physical health of your pet, emotional and mental distress is an equal issue with pet owners these days. With long hours at the office and our pets susceptible to separation anxiety, loneliness, and isolation – pets and their respective owners face the modern day challenges that may not have been as prevalent in the years of stay-at-home moms.
Understandably so- did you know that the average pet is expected to hold off on using the bathroom for 8 or more hours a day? Pets also don’t get the proper exercise they need as exhausted pet parents come home from work wanting to cozy up on the couch and decompress from a long day of work.
Animals naturally hold a higher, pure frequency or vibration. In their natural state, our pets are harmonious by default as nature created them to be in balance with their highest self, naturally. If you observe the behavior of a dog or cat, they are naturally inclined to take care of themselves,naturally socialize, pair and so forth.
There are a lot of energy healing techniques used by holistic veterinarians in the U.S. and around the world. This is to help shift the dog’s health to a state of energetic balance which usually leads to resolution and/or improvement of the dog’s wellbeing. Here are a few:
According to the National Institutes of Health, this method aims for the body’s ability to heal itself by giving very small doses of highly diluted substances. The homeopathic remedies are so diluted that only the “energy” of the substance remains, which will act upon the energetic level of healing for the client. Treatments are individualized. One example of homeopathic remedy include home-prepared diet, nutritional supplements, homeopathic remedies and Chinese herbs for a canine who had an autoimmune disease..
In the American Veterinary Medical Association, veterinary acupuncture and acutherapy is defined as the examination and stimulation of specific points on the body of animals. They use acupuncture needles and other methods in order to diagnose and treat of different animal conditions.

Research shows there is improvement certain aspects of the immune system, and can increase functioning of the human body.
Healing Touch for Animals was founded by Carol Kormitor, a former veterinary technician. This practice utilizes touch to balance the chakra energies within and outside the body. This is to support the body in healing itself on physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels.It is important to learn it over time becuase takes time and experience to harness abilities of maintaining centering and assessing the field.
Reiki and Flower Essences
Animal Reiki is a spiritual practice of compassion for all beings. It is simply learning to meditate with your pet animals. In which it facilitates our life’s challenges with grace and surrender while we to learn to listen to and be present for others in a compassionate space. This is widely used to people and animals experiencing emotional, physical and spiritual imbalances. In connection with this, flower essences reduce and eliminate any emotional/behavioral problems either to the pet owner or the pet animal.
As you can observe, energy healing shines in a variety of methods and situations. Research indicated there is significance between a human with a pet, most especially during diseased states. In return, these animals are as well affected if their owners are stressed. Thus, it is important for the pet owner to learn how to balance their pet’s energies and enhance their wellbeing.
