Every surgical procedure whether minor or invasive takes a toll on your pet’s body and it will take time for your animal friend to heal. In order In order to accelerate recovery, research studies have shown that Reiki offers a number of benefits for Pets who are recovering from a surgical procedure, by encouraging the body to heal more quickly. These studies have shown that pets who participate in Reiki sessions before and after surgery are less likely to feel anxiety or stress than those who do not. Anxiety and stress can inhibit recovery, therefore it stands to reason that in reducing these inflictions we accelerate the healing process.
During the healing process, good quality sleep is essential. Reiki can produce feelings of relaxation which in turn improves sleep quality.
Pain is incredibly common after surgery. If the pain is severe, it may even slow the healing process. However, Reiki can reduce sensations of pain following surgery thus again aiding in recovery.
