What We Do

$50 per session

Travel fee over 20 miles may apply



Animals are highly sensitive energetic beings. They are responsive to the benefits of Reiki energy just as humans are. Reiki can assist animals and their human companions in many ways including healing from past abuse or trauma, transitioning into a new home.

Reiki sessions for your animal will be conducted at your home or safe location within driving distance of your choice, such as veterinary hospital, boarding facility, shelter or sanctuary.  Remote distant healing sessions are also available.  Please request a free consultation to learn more about the options that may work best for your situation.



Reiki can help animals heal from trauma, fear, and anxiety. It can soothe animals transitioning to a new living arrangement or with facing a health issue, including post surgical pain.

“Our rescue Millie was diagnosed with Addison's disease. Within minutes of her first session she walked calmly to our couch and laid there for the rest of her session. You can see Carla's love for animals instantly and your pet will too."
