As a veterinarian, even a holistic one, it can be a challenge to educate your clients about Reiki and get them to open up to its possible benefits. Click here for a free 1-hour audio course, "Introduction to Animal Reiki for Vets."
Here are a few more ideas about how to incorporate Reiki as a holistic modality at your clinic:
- Bring in an Animal Reiki Teacher to teach Reiki to you and your staff.
(You can email Kathleen Prasad for the name of a teacher in your area.)
- Since Reiki practitioners do not diagnose conditions or prescribe medical treatments, you can also bring in an outside Animal Reiki Practitioner to work in partnership with you and to support the "healing program" at your clinic either at the clinic or in clients' homes. See the SARA Members page for Animal Reiki specialists in your area. (If you cannot find an Animal Reiki or Practitioner in your area, you can train in "human" Reiki and then take Kathleen's Core Curriculum, which covers all the fundamentals of working with animals.)
- Put together a 1-page flyer for your clients explaining what Reiki is and how it can help their animals. Display this flyer in your clinic lobby, and make sure that someone on staff (or a partner practitioner) can be available to answer any questions. (Click here for a printable 2-page information sheet you can copy and hand out at your office.)
