Unlike some humans, animals desire to be well. They are open and receptive to assistance in healing. I have not met even one pet who disliked being touched and receiving calming, relaxing energy therapy. The horses and dogs that I am privileged to meet welcome the gift of healing. Their response to it is quick and obvious to me and their owners.
We can learn from animals and also be open & receptive to methods of natural healing. It truly decreases stress and assists the body to return to a calm, balanced state.
