Reiki, a Japanese system created by Mikao Usui in the late 19th century, was originally a purely spiritual development but in modern times has evolved as a system of energetic healing utilizing specific meditative practices and breathing techniques. Kim Sloboda (shown above), who demonstrated an abundance of empathy toward humans and animals alike, saw the successful use of Reiki as a supportive healing technique in hospitals, cancer treatment centers, hospice programs and AIDS clinics and was drawn to the remarkable power of Reiki. Achieving certification as a Reiki Master and licensed Master Teacher, Kim saw how she could apply Reiki’s human successes and benefits to encourage more and more pet owners to seek Reiki as a healing support for their beloved animals. How does Reiki work? Practitioners use intention, focus and meditation to build a sort of energetic “healing bridge” built upon the foundation of the practitioner’s dedication to his or her Reiki personal practice, energetic experience and purity of intention. This bridge forms the energetic harmony and balance that is the essence of Reiki. When animals are stressed, sick or injured they become energetically “imbalanced”. By offering an energetic connection and bridge of “balance”, the practitioner is offering the animal a support system that the animal can use to relax, self-heal and “rebalance”. Reiki typically consists of a series of hand positions lightly placed near different parts of the body. When done on an animal it is practiced from several feet away to allow the animal to come forward to receive hands-on treatment only if open to it.
Kim Sloboda is a mobile practitioner with a portable table, bolsters and other supportive modalities necessary to create the best environment for Reiki. For animals, she has a track record of consistent successful treatment and will travel to their location or can perform distance Reiki.
