Alternative Healing for Animals

Alternative Healing for Animals

There are now available a fairly large array of alternative healing modalities for animals as well as humans and medical science has acknowledged the benefits of some of these. One needs to understand that, in the case of sick animals, choosing an alternative healing method does not mean that you don’t take the animal to the Vet but rather that the modality you choose for the animal works in conjunction with as opposed to instead of.

Animals are wonderful to work with as they have no expectations so the results cannot be written off to “well they expected to feel better so they did”.

Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is one modality to which animals respond extremely well. This is a hands-on healing technique which is thousands of years old. The work Reiki comes from two Japanese words – Rei and Ki. The word Rei as it is used in Reiki can be interpreted to mean Spiritual consciousness and Ki is the life force which is a non-physical energy that animates all living things.

I am a Reiki Master teacher. I have also trained in Touch for Health (a Kinesiology module), Bach Flower remedies, Radionics, Animal Communication and Gestalt.

Working with animals I combine all the above, depending on what is required and will also utilise Tissue Salts and crystals if asked for. The animal can be anywhere in the country as I do not need to see it physically but can work with the hair. No two cases are ever the same – I have worked with horses, dogs and cats exhibiting behavioural problems and/or physical problems with many and varied causes.

I have a feral cat who has lived with me for close on 7 years and who, in conjunction with surgery, literally had to be put together again and learn to walk. Today he is a magnificent, loving cat who likes nothing better than a cuddle and is always the first one to greet visitors.

There have been several Dachshunds with back problems who required surgery but healed faster because of the energetic support.

Often an animal will present with a physical symptom/symptoms which the Vet has been unable to alleviate. Once one gets to the emotional cause, healing can begin. As an example of this, a Maltese was referred to me as a last resort. It had lost most of its fur and was covered in weeping sores. The Vet has changed the diet several times and prescribed many drugs over a period of time – to no avail. The owner had decided that euthanasia was the only option left. What I picked up when working with a minute amount of hair from its tail (the only area still partly furred) was a big black dog which had taken over the Maltese’s role in the household. When checking with the owner she confirmed that there was a black Lab in the house which had arrived several months before the Maltese started having skin problems. In a nutshell, I worked with the Maltese over a period of 3 weeks to heal on an emotional level and reinforce its No. 1 status and its coat grew back and the skin healed completely.

There are enough stories to fill a book about all the amazing animals I have been privileged to help. Humans need to understand the role that animals play in our lives, to acknowledge that they help us in so many ways and to move on from the belief that we own them and are superior to them.

I do work with people as well although this I prefer to do physically and not with hair as I find after a session a client will often want to talk things through.

I am available evenings and weekends and can be contacted on 082 812 3870 or email wizzypark@hotmail.com if you have any queries.
