Healing your dog with Massage or Reiki


Animal studies to show the benefit of Reiki or Massage have not been conducted to the extent that human studies have. Some have been on laboratory animals, which although useful information, I feel I do not want to condone and include on here. A small number are emerging but much more work needs to be done.

The following studies have been published on PubMed® a government website which comprises more than 32 million citations for biomedical literature from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books. It has been available to the public online since 1996, PubMed was developed and is maintained by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), at the US National Library of Medicine (NLM), located at the National Institutes of Health (NIH)

I have included some studies which demonstrates on humans the benefits that Reiki can give alongside massage as well as Reiki alone.

I will include other relevant ones as they are published.
