Andra's Animal Reiki
My deep love and caring for animals were obvious since childhood, propelling me to a life filled with assisting animals. At times this may be someone's lost or sick pet, an injured animal, or wildlife in need of rehabilitation or habitat preservation. My path was paved and then Reiki found me. I enrolled in a First Degree class shortly after receiving my first Reiki session in 1999. The benefits of this profound healing system became evident through giving daily Reiki sessions to myself and my pets. It was a natural progression to begin giving Reiki to other people’s animals and their humans. Recognizing the value of sharing Reiki in a larger way, I continued my training, becoming a Certified Reiki Master-Teacher in 2005.

Individualized Care
It is important to find an experienced, compassionate qualified pet sitter with references who is both a good fit for your animal and YOU! I look forward to caring for your animals in the personal way you would yourself, following all the rules you already have set in place for your animals.

Nurturing for Seniors
Having cared for my own animals throughout their old age, I have a deep appreciation, insight, and patience for providing specialized care. This may be:

Adopted Animals
My volunteer Reiki Healing and socialization work at Pima Paws For Life and the Humane Society of Southern Arizona has provided extensive experience supporting animals before, during, and after adoption with a variety of physical, emotional, and behavioral issues.

Understanding the shelter environment and providing continuity of care after adoption further contributes to successful integration into new family and home.

Shelter animals have generally become accustomed to humans coming and going throughout the day. Newly adopted animals may not be as comfortable being left alone for long periods of time.

What Is Reiki?
*Attunements are required to channel Reiki.

Reiki is a Japanese method of natural healing based on channeling healing energy through the hands. It may be received as a hands-on session or as a distance healing. Reiki works on the whole body and energy system rather than addressing specific symptoms. It is safe to use anytime, anywhere, and in any situation. The inner flow of vital energy is restored as Reiki dissolves old energy blockages. As a result, Reiki enhances the immune system’s ability to repair itself and helps in the prevention of disease. Those receiving Reiki generally experience an overall feeling of well-being as the energy moves and becomes more balanced. For more information about Reiki, visit the website of
The Center for Advanced Energy Therapeutics

Reiki Sessions for Humans:
While animals don’t have to think twice about receiving Reiki energy healing, their human counterparts are much more complex. For that reason, I’d like to share for your curiosity what your in-person Reiki experience looks like:

You’re going to receive your session in the comfort of The Center for Advanced Energy Therapeutics in a relaxing healing room with soft lighting and soft music playing. You will remain fully clothed, lying down on your back on a comfy massage table. Most recipients opt for the eye pillow placed on their eyes for a deeper inward experience. You may also choose to be covered by a light blanket. Once you have settled into the room, I will place my hands on your body following an established series of hand positions. Sensitive and private areas will not be touched. As Reiki is not talk therapy, to promote deeper healing there is no talking during the session. At the end of your session, five minutes is set aside for integration and grounding.

The frequency depends upon need and circumstance. I give myself a Reiki session at least twice per day.

History of Reiki
Dr. Mikao Usui is credited with the rediscovery and revival of Reiki in the mid-1800s. It is not known exactly how this came about. One account states that he was on a quest to discover how Jesus healed. In the other, he was searching for how Buddha healed.

Both indicate that Dr. Usui found directions in the Indian Sutras of Tibet for connecting with a higher power, but this did not give him the understanding or ability to heal. This search led Dr. Usui to one of the holy mountains in Japan, where he meditated and fasted for 21 days while following the sacred instructions. When he was about to leave, the answer was revealed to him.

In what was understood to be an act of divine intervention, Dr. Usui was shown a series of symbols, how to perform healing, as well as how to pass on the ability to heal. He then founded and became the first President of the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai in Japan. As every form of energy is referred to as Reiki in Japan, this particular method is known as the Usui Method of Natural Healing.

According to the Usui lineage, Dr. Chujiro Hayashi was the first student attuned by Dr. Usui to the Master level. Dr. Hayashi is also recognized for starting the first Reiki clinic in Kyoto, Japan, developing the standard hand positions, the traditional three degrees, and also the procedures for initiating new students.

Dr. Hayashi then initiated Mrs. Hawayo Takata, who is known for bringing Reiki to us here in the United States. She also became the first American Reiki Master.

Quick Facts

REIKI: Safe anytime, anywhere, in any situation.

How does Reiki work in conjunction with conventional medicine and treatment?
Reiki supports veterinary procedures and may enhance the benefits of medication and supplementation. The relaxing effects of Reiki may also help with pain and stress reduction, at times resulting in a more receptive, easier to work with patient. Quicker recovery time and less pain are some benefits that may be seen as a result of giving Reiki before, during, and after surgery, dental work, and other veterinary care.

Why do you use the word “session” rather than “treatment?”
The use of the term “treatment” implies that a medical procedure is being performed or a symptom is being treated. Reiki sessions are given primarily for the purpose of stress reduction and relaxation. Therefore, it is important to distinguish the difference between medical/veterinary care and a Reiki healing session.

What are the recommendations for session frequency?

As each session builds upon the previous session, providing a strong foundation for deeper healing, it is generally recommended to begin with:
  • 4 daily sessions, minimum, in sequence for maximum benefit;
  • Followed by 1-2 sessions per week until “recovery” when possible;
  • Then weekly/monthly sessions as maintenance support.
Occasionally circumstances may warrant more than the 1-2 sessions per week after the initial 4. It is important to understand, however, that daily Reiki sessions are ideal to support optimum health, even for healthy animals. Clients often choose to register for Animal Reiki Basics Training so they may give Reiki to animals themselves.

How may Reiki help if my animal is at the end of his or her life?
Reiki may increase overall comfort, facilitating a sense of calm acceptance and a more peaceful transition.

What are the benefits gained from distance vs. hands-on sessions?
Distance sessions are often more powerful than hands-on. While physical touch may feel good physically to some animals, it may be slightly disturbing to others. Hands-on sessions require a scheduled time and setting. Distance healings are performed at various times of the day and night without a strict schedule. Some clients find the cost-effectiveness of Distance healings to be of great benefit long-term.

When is distance more appropriate than hands-on?

Some examples when distance sessions would be the more comfortable choice for the animal include:
  • Highly fearful or aggressive animals
  • Animals experiencing a great deal of pain
  • Burns
  • Head injuries
  • Wild animals
Distance sessions are more appropriate for wildlife in order to minimize stress, as being handled by humans would generally cause more agitation. Orphaned wildlife vulnerable to becoming imprinted on humans would be better supported by distance as well. An exception may be when a wild animal is tranquilized or under anesthesia for a procedure as part of their rehabilitation.
 
Up To Top
 

What do both animals and humans often experience after receiving Reiki?

  • Stress reduction
  • Increased energy
  • Reduction of pain
  • Emotional release
  • Improved digestion
  • Improved immune function
  • Reduced recovery time after
    procedures, illness, and injury
 
What else might I notice about my animal following a session?
Circumstances vary widely from animal to animal. Many animals, however, may go into a deeper, more restful sleep as a result of the session. Depending on the circumstance, the animal may also show signs of being more playful, light-hearted, and have an increase in appetite. It is important to understand that the benefits of a Reiki session may also appear long after a session has been received. Results may not always be initially visible.

Is there a timeline to see results?
It varies for each animal and circumstance. Reaching the core of the imbalance for deeper healing and balancing can take time. Stress reduction and improved outlook can sometimes occur sooner than physical recovery from serious injury. There may also be hidden mental/emotional issues which must be resolved first before physical recovery can take place.

What happens if my pet doesn’t want to be touched during a hands-on session?
An in-person Animal Reiki session may include hands-on, distance, or a combination of the two depending on the animal’s comfort level and preference. Some animals may prefer to receive Reiki only from a distance even when we are in the same room.

How is an in-person Reiki session different for a human than an animal?
A set pattern of hand positions is followed for hands-on sessions given to humans in person. For animals, an in-Person session may include distance, hands-on, or both. The animal shows where to place the hands, so there are no set hand positions.

How is a Distance Reiki session different for a human than an animal?
The only difference is that humans are asked to lie down at a specifically scheduled time to receive the session. Distance Reiki is sent to animals at any time of day or night, and animals are not asked to remain still.

Testimonials
Connection and Relaxation:

“Andra has Oliver's endorsement! She does amazing work. I've never seen him so relaxed or "in tune"
with anyone else, other than myself!

(Photo to right is from an in-our-home Reiki session with Andra a few years ago.)”

~ Laurie G.
 
Support During Surgery:
“If they hadn’t been there to witness it, the people working at the vet’s office would not have believed Slinky just had surgery earlier that day
to remove a growth from her tongue. Especially for a senior, she was so vibrant and full of energy after the procedure when she normally
would have seemed sluggish and all drugged up. I’m so glad I said yes to Andra and Reiki supporting her through this!”

~ Cinda E.
 
Reiki Healing During & After Surgery:
Shadow's doing really, really well. At this point he's about ten days post-op, and truly, his personality has totally changed. He's affectionate and loves to sit in my lap now. I'm astounded by how much happier he seems, and how much more personable he is. The difference is night and day.
I cannot thank you enough for your distance and in-person Reiki to support him during surgery as well as during post-op.

~Chrissy T.
 
Happy Endings:

Reiki also supports animals undergoing extensive surgical procedures and chemotherapy. A series of distance Reiki sessions is suggested before, during, and after surgery.

“When my dog Buddy was diagnosed with cancer this past summer, I wanted him to have the best and most complete care possible as he went through surgery and recovery. Having Andra's support and healing on a daily basis during these tough times provided an element of patient care that is typically missed by conventional veterinary medicine. Andra helped support Buddy holistically, energetically and spiritually.
He now is more vibrant and youthful than ever before. I give Andra plenty of credit as well as Buddy's underlying love of life as the driving forces behind his journey back to health. Thank you, Andra!”

~ Laris G.
 
Deep Release and Ease:

“Tonight Banjo had the most incredible Reiki session with the amazing Andra S. Ewton. This boy licked and chewed and yawned and passed gas (all super great releases if you were a horse) he is eating now as she works with him and sends energy to heal. I was shocked at how quickly he relaxed and showed us how happy he was. He is relaxing his back right leg now and not trying to stand on 3 legs. Bearing weight on that front left like we hoped he would. I even got a complimentary session and I am not kidding I almost fell asleep. So honored she offered to come over and share her gift with us.”

~ Seneca N.
Peaceful Transition:
"Andra's animal Reiki work helped my injured cat pass in peace. She was calm, direct, and effective at helping both me and my cat through the death process. I am confident that my cat Luna was able to transition into death due to Andra's inner strength and extensive experience. I simply cannot recommend Andra strongly enough as a healer and guide during an animal's transition, and I fully intend to hire her for Reiki work when I adopt another cat in the future.” ~ Chrissy T.
 
Distance Reiki for People:
“Nearly four years ago I was fresh from surgery and worried so much that I literally could not sleep. My dear friend Andra offered distance Reiki healing to help. Now, I had heard of this type of healing but had never had it and was skeptical. Because I trust her, I let her try. The amount of peace I felt and the lessening of pain was nothing short of miraculous. I can never begin to thank you enough, Andra S. Ewton. <3”

~ Jeneiene S.
 
In-Person Reiki Sessions for Humans:
I had the good fortune of the CAET Reiki Volunteer Program assigning Andra to my case while recovering in the hospital after a bad car accident. The sessions with her were so powerful that I fell asleep each time she came to work on me. Recently, I reconnected with Andra through the In-House Reiki Volunteer Program at the Center for Advanced Energy Therapeutics. She has a very nice healing room that has a wonderful healing energy. It's soft and gentle... like Andra. Each time I go there I feel that major progress is achieved in my healing. I've had Reiki from other practitioners but Andra's abilities clearly surpass previous sessions I had. At my most recent session, I felt a painful hernia (that was a result of the accident) move and shift. I've had far less pain since the session. I highly recommend anyone who is in need of healing to seek out her care.

~ Erin M.
 
Relief Again:
"I need to put the amazing Reiki practitioner Andra S. Ewton on a retainer. She came through for me again last night. Distance Reiki for 30 minutes meant I could finally get some sleep and relief from a particularly pesky migraine."

~ Jeneiene S.

Story Behind the Rabbit Logo 

 
 

I was driving down from the Grand Canyon with some friends one night and saw a rabbit get tumbled under the car in front of me. I stopped, got out of my car and approached the rabbit. It was still alive in the middle of the road and appeared uncomfortable. I instinctively felt compelled to put my hand on its body to calm it and instructed my friend to put his hand on the rabbit as well. It didn't take long before it died. We then picked the rabbit up and put its body on the ground under a bush to honor it and hopefully prevent other animals from meeting the same fate.

Upon returning to Tucson, the experience stayed with me. I felt the desire to document the moment we shared by creating a linoleum cut, of which this logo is a part. One of the prints still hangs on my wall. During this “pre-Reiki” experience, I felt a heightened awareness of being in the moment with that rabbit, determined to assist it and alleviate its discomfort as best I could. What a blessing I find Reiki to be in amplifying the ability to support animals out of their suffering!
 

 
 
Animal Reiki Stories
* Reiki sessions are given for the purpose of stress reduction and relaxation. A variety of benefits may be observed as the energy moves and balances. A Reiki session is not a substitute for veterinary diagnosis or treatment.
 

Cats:

Mama Cat was a petite pastel calico who “came with the house.” Once I began sending her Reiki, she was able to be handled much sooner than most feral cats and even allowed me to pick her up to cuddle with her. One day she showed up on the porch with a barbed fish hook that had pierced through her cheek. She trusted me to bring her inside, remaining calm and still while I held her in my lap so two “strangers” could cut the metal and pull it out. In consultation with the vet and receiving Reiki every day, she quickly made a full recovery.

HC was a well-loved, long-haired orange kitty who received a Reiki session every day from his person. He lived to the ripe old age of 25½ years without having the usual degenerative organ issues cats are known to experience when they get older. His quality of life remained until it was time to set him free.

Amigo was a handsome black feral cat who had become terminally ill. He usually preferred not to be handled but tolerated receiving subQ fluids. Sending Reiki daily supported him to be calm and comfortable throughout his hospice care. He passed with ease on his own when he was ready.

A cat who was being fed through a feeding tube was reported to be calm and deeply relaxed when receiving distance Reiki scheduled for her feeding times. Her pre-Reiki behavior was to struggle and resist being handled.

 
Dogs:

Zeke was a nine-year-old West Highland White Terrier who was referred to me after his vet had deemed him inoperable. This lively, social boy had injured his knee and was moping, hiding, and uninterested in play. The vet was reluctant to add any more medications to his regimen and had given the ok to try Reiki, saying that it couldn’t hurt. By the end of his initial package of four daily Reiki sessions, Zeke was back to his playful self, running to get toys from his toybox and jumping up on the couch.

Other dogs who were injured or feeling under the weather have been reported to become more playful and energetic as well.

Dogs boarded at the kennel have often changed their behavior for the better when supported with Reiki. Common feedback received includes no longer barking due to stress and calmly minding their manners. Kennel staff remarked that the dogs were so calm and easygoing, unlike their pre-Reiki barking behavior.

Belle, an American Staffordshire Terrier who was separated from her puppies due to food aggression, responded very well to distance Reiki in combination with holding her attention with positive distraction and praise. Using this approach, her food aggressive behavior shifted during group feeding.

Sending Reiki while providing behavioral guidance has been known to support animals to be more at ease during training. Common feedback has included the animals being more focused and cooperative, with their behavior shifting more easily in a quicker timeframe.

 
Up To Top
 
Exotics:

Birds, fish, tortoises, snakes and other exotics have also responded well to receiving Reiki to support a variety of circumstances.

Feather-picking and other behavioral issues in birds have often been reported to shift when supported with Reiki. Quicker recovery times have frequently been observed after illness and injury as well.

 
Horses:

Sending Reiki to a herd of horses reduced territorial behavior while supporting the horses to get along more cohesively as a unit. The horses would also take turns coming up to show where to put my hands to give them hands-on Reiki. Horses who were at the lower end of the hierarchy were more easily able to come forward to receive attention without being targeted by the dominant female.

Distance Reiki during training, boarding, travel, competitions, pregnancy, and labor may be supportive as well.

 
Multiple Animals:
Sending Reiki to multiple animals in a household at the same time has often supported them to get along better and deepen their connection.
 
Shelter Animals:
Shelter animals are often observed to have a greater sense of calm, be more responsive and cooperative, and experience quicker recovery times. Overall, sensitive animals have become more well-adjusted, acclimating quicker to the stress of newly being in a shelter environment. This is in contrast to their pre-Reiki behavior of being fearful, shy, and unwilling to be handled.
 
Veterinary, Grooming, and Other Procedures:

Animals being examined or undergoing procedures at the vet or groomer have generally been known to be calmer and more cooperative when receiving Reiki. Sending distance Reiki during this time is especially supportive.

Wildlife:

An Arizona Giant Centipede had been observed entering through a back door. After distance Reiki was sent, it willingly climbed onto a duster and then into a bucket, drank water when offered, and  gracefully returned to the desert.

A little bird landed on the cement sidewalk after becoming stunned from flying into a window. It then flew upward in an attempt to land on a sign approximately 15 feet above the entrance to a store, but missed. It was unable to fly at that point and fell straight down onto the sidewalk. Although normally it’s not suggested to pick up wildlife, I did in this case so the bird wouldn’t inadvertently get stepped on. I held it, gave Reiki, and then brought it out back where there was a patch of suitable desert habitat. While I was beginning to think about bringing the bird home until I could get it to a wildlife rehabilitator and wondering how I was going to get it situated away from my dogs and cats, the little bird suddenly took off. It flew about the length of half a football field and landed in a tree where it began to sing. Birds have often responded well in these types of situations after receiving Reiki.

A baby gecko who was accidentally stepped on and then fell several feet onto concrete made a full recovery after receiving the support of Reiki daily in combination with homeopathics, flower essences, color therapy, magnetic and far-infrared material.

Injured and orphaned wildlife being cared for by wildlife rehabilitators have also been known to respond well to Reiki’s stress-reducing and relaxing effects.  

“Nuisance wildlife” including mice that had infested a house ended up leaving on their own after Reiki was sent to the situation daily. Distance Reiki may be used for situations involving packrats, coyotes, and other wildlife as well.

A “chinchilla,” as folks were calling it, was discovered running frantically in circles in a parking lot. After sending Reiki to the animal and the situation, a store employee came outside carrying a humane trap and proceeded to set it up. She offered to take the “chinchilla” home and care for it, and other folks contributed food and water. Within minutes, the animal walked calmly into the trap and allowed the store worker to pick it up. The packrat seemed to really appreciate all of the caring devotion as a result of being labeled a “chinchilla.”
