Pets And You Reiki supports healthy body, spirit for people and pets

Offering a form of alternative medicine know as energy healing



Rose LaLuz understands how to carefully and gently support the healing of bodies and souls – for people and their pets.

She comes from a long line of healers, midwives and shamans. Her heritage is Latina and her passion is the uplifting of all as a collective soul.

LaLuz shares her knowledge and expertise in support of overall good health at Pets And You Reiki – now open inside the historic Titusville Station at 202 W. Gowe St., Kent.

Her small business offers Reiki therapy for people and pets.

Reiki is a form of alternative medicine know as energy healing. Practitioners use a technique called palm healing through which a “Universal Life Energy” is said to be transferred through the palms of the practitioner to the patient in order to encourage emotional or physical healing. Such treatment emerged in Japan in the late 1800’s. And has since become known and practiced worldwide by those who encourage a holistic view of health.

As LaLuz explains, Reiki therapy releases stored memories and emotion that may be obstacles to living a life of health and happiness.

“The body is a complex matrix of energy and matter and must be treated holistically,” she said. “Where your body holds sadness, anger and worry, these emotions become manifested as physical illness. If we don’t release them, they create patterns of dysfunction in our lives, not only in our physical and mental health, but also our relationships and our ability to express our full potential.”

That therapy extends to treating furry companions, animals that share our homes, joys and other emotions.

“Often they are the sole support in difficult times and willingly gives us their love and pure energy,” LaLuz said.

“They ‘pick up’ on the intention behind our thoughts and actions, even without language or human concepts.”

For this reason, LaLuz pointed out, a Reiki healing session is even more effective when applied to the animal spirit than it is for “thinking” humans. An animal will show depression, distress and odd behavioral changes when its spirit is in need of healing.”
