Get ready to celebrate the healing power of Reiki on World Animal Reiki Day on February 5! This special day was created in 2015 by Kathleen Prasad, a renowned animal Reiki teacher and author, to honor the practice of using Reiki energy for the well-being of animals. Reiki is an ancient Japanese technique that promotes relaxation and stress reduction, aiding in physical and emotional healing. It's become increasingly popular as a holistic approach to animal care, with many pet owners and animal shelters incorporating it into their routines. So let's take this day to not only appreciate our furry friends, but also recognize the positive impact Reiki can have on their lives.
