Reiki, meaning Universal Life Force Energy, is one of the most ancient healing methods. Reiki Masters have passed their knowledge down through the centuries to make this the technique that is practices today. Details of onsite and home study equine reiki courses are discussed further below.
These techniques, whilst not always fully understood or explained by conventional science, can be learned by everyone.
As a hands-on therapy, transferring healing energy from the practitioner to the horse, equine reiki is becoming increasingly accepted as a valuable therapy within the equestrian community.
It can be an integral part of recovery from trauma, essential when considering how to manage undesirable behaviour.
