Animal Reiki for Reiki Practitioners

8-Week Self-Study Certification Course

Not getting the results you want with Animal Reiki?

This class is for you!

If you’ve tried human Reiki with animals and are getting mixed results with animals, there is a very simple reason why. Animals are not human! They need a different approach.

Our groundbreaking class will show you why animals may be saying no, backing away or succumbing but not comfortable with you. Our system is so effective, after the first class you'll be getting a yes instead of a no!

Let us help you create amazing connections with the animals in your life!

Taught by Animal Reiki veteran and Shelter Animal Reiki Association Vice President and Co-Founder, Leah D’Ambrosio, this class covers everything you need to know about sharing Reiki with animals and getting results.
