Yes, it’s true. Giving your dog a massage is also good for you. Science has shown that petting animals actually improves the health of humans. It reduces stress, lowers blood pressure and elevates our moods. This is why so many pet owners tend to be happier people! This is also why therapy animals are so important – science has shown that petting animals greatly improves the mental and physical health of people, regardless of whether or not they want to admit it.
With the belief that holistic animal therapy is centered on love, empathy and respect, Gillian uses her knowledge and skills to help improve an animal’s health and happiness, which can strengthen and deepen their connections to their human companions. Using a combination of animal communication, canine massage and remote or in-person energy healing work, Gillian helps animals activate their natural ability to balance and heal their physical, emotional and mental well-being.

It’s also helpful to let dogs know they can take as much or as little Reiki as they wish to ensure they know they have a choice as to how much Reiki they receive. If the dog approaches the practitioner and appears to want to be touched, the practitioner can place her hands in a series of positions that are comforting to the dog. You don’t need a timer to let you know when the session is over. Dogs are not bashful about getting up and leaving when they’ve taken in the amount of energy they need.
Using Reiki as a complimentary therapy at a veterinarian’s office is an excellent way to help ease the increased stress level your dog may experience while at the office. Reiki can also help your dog heal emotionally and physically from any treatments that may have to be performed once you return home. If your dog has had surgery, Reiki can help the overall healing process. I work with several veterinarians, both remotely and at animal hospitals, to assist dogs during the office visit and after the dog returns home. When I perform a Reiki session at a veterinarian’s office or off-site location, I will try to make the room as comfortable as possible. I dim the lights, provide a comfortable bed for them to lie in if they wish and maybe softly play meditation music. It is important that everyone is open to the energy healing and remain relaxed. This includes the dog, their human companion and me.
Massage Works Wonders for Wilma: Former street dog Wilma had trouble calming down and relaxing when meeting new people, greeting guests and when experiencing new situations. “In January, 2017 Wilma was found with her two surviving puppies, living on the streets in Amarillo, Texas. All were brought to CO, and I adopted her in early February. We’ve been working on building confidence in new situations and building social skills with new people. While Wilma is benefiting from canine massage in that she’s learning to relax and be calm, Gillian’s work helped in other ways as well. Wilma has become much more confident, able to spend time with Gillian alone, without me and the other dogs present. Regular sessions have also helped Wilma be more confident in other situations where people are present in my home. On Thanksgiving, she actually jumped into someone’s lap. And she is engaged and excited to see new people, no treats necessary! Dog massage therapy has been a fabulous experience for me and Wilma.” Source: https://fourpawsholistictherapy.com/.
