Virtual for herbal consultations, distance & in-home reiki sessions.
Animals, like people, have an energy field that surrounds their bodies. Blockages can develop in their energy field and can manifest in different ways in their bodies. Energy Medicine practitioners will help to clear those blockages. Energy healing has always been used along side other forms of healing, the world over. Healing through prayers, placing hands on another, etc. In my spiritual healing practice there is the option of in person or distance sessions for animals. These will be specific for each individual animal.
Reiki/Energy sessions are up to 1 hour. Animals will determine the length of their time. For in-person, we will start once they are calmed and lying down. Animals tend to lie peacefully and rest during Reiki and when they have had enough, will get up and leave the room or area. In the case of an animal that is having trouble calming down, we will start from a distance in the space, and allow them to calm down with the energy. From there, we will continue with hands on or off, depending on their comfort. Reiki may be done with a light, gentle pressure touch on the chakra points or the practitioners hands may remain a few inches above the clients body. This all depends on their comfort level. For distance sessions, we will choose a time they are typically calm and resting and will last an hour.
Just as herbs have been used for people, Animal Herbalists use herbs for animals, taking what nature has provided us to empower owners to give their animals a stronger foundation for their health. Herbs & Flower remedies offer a safe, natural healing option for our animals. They are wonderful for First Aid, as well as working holistically (body, mind and soul). They encourage the body to activate its own innate healing mechanism using plants as Nature intended. Instead of using ready-made products, every herbal formula is made for the specific animal, making it a very individualized formula. All remedies are handmade with the highest quality herbal extracts. Animals in their natural state, eat a wide variety of grasses, grains, leaves, roots, barks and herbs. It is however, rare for animals to be able to roam and find medicinal herbs to consume on their own. If animals can’t help themselves, we have to help them. The fastest way to bring your animal back to balanced health, is through the ancient art of herbs. Animal Herbalists have knowledge to help you choose the appropriate safe herbs. Equine & Canine Massage Therapists are animal health professionals that use their knowledge of anatomy, physiology, pathology, massage techniques, joint play and vertebral realignment to improve an animals physical well being. Equine & Canine massage therapists utilize hands-on techniques to relax muscles, stimulate circulation, and enhance range of motion in animals. Equine & Canine Massage Therapists develop and implement a plan based on the individual animals needs. Massage & Osteopathy is a natural system that views the individual as a functioning whole. Using very precise non-invasive manipulative techniques to assess and work with the restrictive mechanisms which prevent the various parts of the body from fulfilling their natural function. They focuses on the cause of pain and dysfunction rather than concentrating only on the symptoms. The aim is to restore mobility and proper function to every system in a body experiencing dysfunction and restriction allowing normal interrelationships between systems. Animals, just like us, have aches, pains, compete in sports, run and play. They need coordination, balance and strength to do so. Massage and osteopathy can prevent injuries by increasing range of motion and flexibility, reduce injury recovery time, enhance their athletic ability, relax the nervous system and help to eliminate waste from their system.
How do you Choose your Equine Massage Therapist? Today, there are many equine massage therapists around. They have different titles : Registered Equine Massage Therapist, Certified Equine Massage Therapist, Equine Sports Massage Therapist, etc. It is hard to know which professional to choose. As a Certified Equine Massage Therapist, Animal Manual Osteopath, Animal Herbalist, and past Veterinary Assistant, I have extensive conventional and holistic animal healthcare training, plus the additional training in human osteopathy and natural & holistic medicine. Having earned my Doctor of Osteopathy, Doctor of Botanical Medicine, Doctor of Natural Medicine and soon Doctor of Natural Animal Science & Doctor of Naprapathy, I can bring a truly holistic healthcare program to both you and your horse. In the UK, it is common to see an Osteopath & Herbalist treating a horse, and then after treating the owner/rider. This will allow both to work together as a graceful team.
