I love animals and love to work with them. I offer a number of different services to my client's furry, feathered, and scaly friends as well as to my people clients themselves: Reiki, Medical Qigong, and TTouch. These methods are more of the "alternative" therapy type most often used for pain management, stress reduction, energy balancing, behavior modification and hospice services. I also offer behavior consultations and positive training sessions for those of you looking for help with your pet in a more traditional manor. My client's have been happy and made wonderful progress with their pet using a combination of alternative and traditional methods.
I pretty much do it all, just ask.
In my 9 years of practice I have naturally progressed from dog training to specializing in energy therapy for people and pets. Blame it on Uncle Pinky...he created a monster. Uncle Pinky is my cat...who really is a dog... in a cat's body. Long story short, Pink was only 2 yrs old, very sick and dying. Doc said "I could give him another shot". I said there has to be some other way to help him, so search I did. Today Uncle Pinky is happy and healthy and 11 yrs old, but still stuck in a cat's body. Alternative medicine therapy is what I found and...I am happier than the clam that didn't make it in the chowda'.

So, let me tell you a little about the holistic types of energy therapy I use in my practice. By holistic I refer to address the "Whole" body - on all levels: physical, emotional, and spiritual. As I have been a pioneer in adapting energy work to animals, the Medical Qigong field is my specialty. The animals respond so quickly and quite noticeably.
Medical Qigong, pronounced Chi-gong, is an ancient Chinese healing art which is over 5000 yrs old. In Medical Qigong, a skilled practitioner is able to detect and clear imbalances in the body's energy fields. The practitioner skillfully sends energy and directs the client's energy fields into a balanced state, "Homeostasis". After a session, my human client may be prescribed a Qigong exercise as ongoing therapy, depending on the imbalances I find. There are no Qigong exercises for the animal clients. They tend not to carry the emotional baggage that we humans do. Sessions may be done distantly. Sessions are available for people or pets.
Reiki, pronounced ray-key, is a wonderful Japanese healing art that was re-discovered in the mid-to-late 1800's by Dr Mikao Usui. In Reiki, the practitioner places their hands on or above the client. It is the client that draws the energy as needed, not the practitioner's energy, but Divine energy channeled through the practitioner. Reiki balances and strengthens the body's energy, promoting the body, mind and spirit to heal oneself. This session may also be done from a distance. Sessions available for people or pets.
TTouch, pronounced T-Touch, is a very gentle method of working with your animals based on trust and mutual respect. Like Medical Qigong and Reiki, it also helps reduce pain, anxiety and stress leading to a much more balanced mental and physical state. There are 3 components to TTouch: the body work or touches, leading exercises using different equipment or tools, and the confidence course or playground for higher learning. All 3 are utilized when working with dogs and horses. For other small creatures such as cats, rabbits, birds, pocket pets, and yes, reptiles too, I use the touches and some different tools. Please see the page "TTouch for Your Pets" for more detailed information.
As mentioned above, I also provide behavior consultations and family-friendly dog training services. Whether you have one dog or four;
whether you just added a new puppy to your household or adopted a rescued
senior.....I can help you create balance in your home and empower you with knowledge.
use hands-on, positive techniques that you can quickly learn to apply
to your everyday situation with your dog. Whether you choose a
six-week course or a basic introduction to obedience - or perhaps you
and your dog need more intense work on behavior issues - I can help you make your household
