Equine Treatment

The Equine Reiki Practitioner will decide whether to treat your horse tied up, free in the stable or sometimes over the stable door. The practitioner will either lay their hands on the horse's body or from a space away, depending on how the horse wishes to receive the energy.

During the treatment, energy (called "chi") is drawn through the practitioner into the recipient, helping to produce a state of balance.

How might my horse react

The great thing about using Reiki on horses is that you can 'see' it working. Your horse will most likely relax, lick his lips, lower his head and neck and pass wind. Some horses will lie down to sleep.

Different types of horses can react in different ways, for example, youngsters may not show as many signs of relaxation during their first treatment as an older horse may, however the young horse will often lie down to sleep after the treatment when he is alone.

No matter what the reaction, Reiki is giving your horse what he/she needs.
