Animal therapy, or animal healing, is a non-complementary natural, non-invasive, drug-free therapy for animals with a major focus on prevention and is suitable for various physical and emotional conditions. It can be used alongside other manual therapies and in conjunction with any on-going veterinary treatment.
It should be remembered animal therapy is not a cure not can provide a diagnosis, and should never be used as a substitute for proper veterinary care. If an animal is unwell or has been injured, receiving immediate veterinary care is needed right away.
The impact of domestication and environmental stress on animals have affected their ability to use their own natural healing processes when they are injured or diseased. When this happens, the trauma from the injury or illness is being stored in the body as an energy blockage which prevents the animal to return to a healthy status. Repeated trauma can lead to a lack of well-being or a chronic disease.
When healing therapy is provided to the animal, it allows the body to restore and rebalance its energy and increase the resources for natural energy, allowing the trauma to be dispersed. It also helps in speeding up the recovery time for wounds, injuries, and illnesses. In addition, stress is further reduced from the animal.
Healing helps the animal to go into a deep state of relaxation allowing its body to release the trauma. It should be remembered that an animal may sleep more than usual afterwards.
Healing also provides emotional support for animals to help them process and release emotional trauma brought by fear, anxiety, stress, or separation.
