I am a certified Cranial Sacral Therapist, Energy Healing Practitioner and Life Coach. I work with both people and animals in my practice. I am honoured to help people and animals gently return to balance through the healing power of compassionate, gentle touch, and through the healing and balancing properties of nature. I am constantly filled with awe and wonder at the body's innate intelligence and self-healing ability, and feel privileged to assist other beings on their path toward health and wholeness.
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) releases tensions and restrictions within the body using a very gentle, light touch while the patient is fully clothed. By freeing restrictions within the body, CST increases movement and range of motion, reduces pain, relieves stress and promotes healing. CST encourages the healthy functioning of the central nervous system and supports the body's natural ability and inclination to heal. It is particularly effective for chronic pain, migraines/headaches, neck and back aches, and conditions resulting from past injuries, accidents, trauma, surgery or dental work. CranioSacral Therapy is as gentle and effective for animals as it is for people.
Energy Field Integrations
The Way of the Heart™ Energy Field Integrations help clear deeply held subconscious beliefs, patterns and genetic line programming about who we are or what we can accomplish. They release fear, anger, shock, trauma, stress, sorrow, depression; clear blocked muscles, systems and areas within the body; and so much more. This helps people and animals meet the challenges in their lives with increased confidence, trust and ease. Integrations are particularly helpful for animals who have movement, fear or behavioural issues, or who have experienced trauma, stress and loss in their lives.
Tellington TTouch for Companion Animals (TTouch)
Tellington TTouch (TTouch) is a gentle and respectful way to improve an animal's health and behaviour through hands-on touch and movement. It reduces fear and unwanted aggression, speeds healing and improves an animal's overall health and well-being. TTouch also increases an animal's body awareness, improves focus and encourages relaxation. It has a calming and grounding effect, which reduces overall stress and supports the immune system. Self-confidence and self-control are influenced by the way in which an animal moves and carries its body. An animal who is physically out of balance will tend to be more reactive and emotional than one who has a more balanced body. A combination of TTouch
and CranioSacral Therapy
is an effective way to release tensions and restrictions in an animal's body which may be contributing to unwanted behaviour, health issues, poor posture and limited movement.
Distance Healing Sessions
I specialize in distance (or remote) healing and energy balancing. Distance healing sessions for animals are an incredibly gentle and effective method of treatment, especially if the animal is fearful, elderly, has mobility issues, is reactive or sensitive to physical touch. I have found that, for many animals, distance healing sessions are the most effective means of treatment.
