Upcoming Class Info & Tip

Happy spring! I have cancelled my class on Basic Animal Energy Work and Communication on McKnight Road. I AM teaching this class at Journeys of Life in Shadyside on Monday, March 18 and Monday, Mach 25 from 7-8:30 PM. This is ONE class held in two parts. There are still a few openings. Please call Journeys at 412-681-8755 to register. Also, this class will be offered ONLINE in the near future. Please check back as updates will be posted when this class becomes available.

This class will include the following: What energy work is, how communication works, simple energy techniques for your pet (and you), communicating with your pet (especially helpful regarding trips to the vet or if you’re going away), reassurance for rescued pets, recognizing your own animal totems and more. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Pet Tip: Although our pets seem very human at times, it is important to remember that they are still animals with their own set of instincts. Cats hunt. Greyhounds run. Beagles bay (howl). It’s in their DNA. KNOW the pet you’re getting before you bring him/her home. Choose an animal that fits your lifestyle. Adoption counselors at rescue organizations are very good at helping you with this. It’s their job. You make think that border collies are great (of course they are), but are you able and prepared to deal with the constant stimulation and exercise they need? And PLEASE provide proper positive training for your pet so that you can all live happily ever after.

Levels of Healing

For optimal well being, healing and self care must occur on both the physical and mental/emotional levels. In Chinese medicine (and many Eastern philosophies), various emotional states are connected to different organs and body parts. We store various issues and traumas in our bodies: “Your issues are in your tissues”. If you’ve had an injury or problem that you have addressed, possibly several times, but it keeps coming back, chances are that you need healing on an emotional/mental level as well. As a personal trainer, I address the physical side of things. As a healer, I address the emotional/mental aspect. For example, hip problems can be related to moving forward. If you have a physical hip injury, you should certainly address it. As a healer, I can help you clear the issues that keep bringing the problem back. I do this through Reflexology, Reiki and various forms of energy work. I facilitate SELF HEALING, which requires your active participation to achieve maximum benefit. As a trainer, I can give you advice on exercises that would benefit you.

Upcoming events: I will be at Journeys in Shadyside doing pet readings on Saturday, Feb. 23 from 1-5 PM. Please call Journeys to schedule a session or stop in. I will be teaching a class “Animal Energy Work and Communication for the Pet Owner” on Sunday, March 24 from 1-4 PM at my McKnight Road location.

Please call or email if you have questions or would like to register for this class, which is $75. Space is limited to 12 participants. Anyone is welcome, so please feel free to share this information with anyone you know who may be interested. I hope to see you there!

Pet tip: If your pet is feeling anxious for any reason (vet visit, storm, construction in your home, etc), visualize a pink protective bubble around him/her to help with feelings of security. This is one of the many things that will be discussed in my upcoming class.
