About Rob Fellows
Joe, my inspiration to learn Reiki
Hello, I’m Rob Fellows, International Reiki Master Teacher, and I help people all over the world to overcome health obstacles in their lives, and in the lives of their family or pets.
I show them how to benefit by receiving gentle healing from me or to easily learn how to do the healing themselves by enrolling on one of my Reiki Training and Qualification Mentorships.
The picture of me above is with Monty, but I must tell you about Joe (pictured below), because Joe was actually the reason I began to study Reiki in the first place, way back in 1999.
When Joe, my springer spaniel, was diagnosed with arthritis in his front paws I felt that I had to do something to help him.
He was such a faithful friend who loved to go for walks even though he was in so much pain and he often dragged his foot on the floor, making it bleed. It broke my heart to see him like that.
At the time I had a problem with my lower back and a friend suggested I tried some Reiki sessions.
I hadn’t heard of Reiki but a couple of weeks later I found myself lying face down fully clothed on a therapy bed with a Reiki practitioner gently resting her hands on the small of my back.
The pain eased and I felt SO relaxed that I didn’t want to get off the bed once the session was over.
However, when I eventually climbed down I soon noticed how I could move about more easily and the pain had subsided. After a couple more sessions I felt very much better.
I was sure Reiki could help Joe too
This made me think .. as Reiki has helped me so much then I'm sure Reiki could help Joe too.
It didn’t take me long to book myself on a Level 1, or First Degree, Reiki training course. The course was very good but the focus was on treating people and not animals.
So I adapted my new learning, did more research and got on with helping my dog.
This now meant I was able ease Joe’s suffering whenever he needed me. Whilst nothing is able to cure arthritis, I was really pleased I was able to help Joe and give him regular Reiki to complement the medication prescribed by his vet.
Joe wasn’t with me every day and so about a month later I trained in Level 2 Reiki so that I could send distance Reiki to Joe literally everyday. [I will teach you how to do this if you take Level 2 training with me too].
That was back in 1999 when Joe was 13…. and we shared a further two years before he left me.
Joe was my catalyst, my reason to learn Reiki and I still miss him today.
By then Reiki had become a hugely important part of my life, and although I mainly gave Reiki to my family, my ‘new’ dog Monty and to friends, I found more and more people were asking me to help them or their pets with Reiki too.
To complete my Reiki journey I became a Reiki Master Teacher in January 2008.
As time passed I realised that I shouldn’t be keeping my skills to myself and that I should be sharing my learning with others to enable many more people to share the benefits of Reiki.
So, at the start of 2011 I first launched my Reiki training programs with a special interest in Reiki for Dogs and other Animals ... as well as my particular interest in helping people who suffer from Stress related difficulties, and for those suffering from ANY health condition that flares up whenever they are Stressed.
