An animal’s body is made up of tiny atoms vibrating at specific frequencies. The body has an innate knowledge of the frequency of theses vibrations for the maintenance of its health.
Injury and disease
When an animal is injured or diseased, the effects of domestication and environmental stress often prevent animals from utilizing their own natural healing processes.
When this happens, the ‘trauma’ from the illness or injury becomes stored within the body as an energetic blockage, and the healthy frequencies become disrupted, preventing the animal from returning to a balanced healthy status, called ‘homeostasis’.
In some cases, repeated trauma can lead to chronic disease and a lack of well-being.
When healing energy is offered to the animal, it enables the body to raise and rebalance its frequencies, and increase its natural energy resources. Healing allows the trauma to disperse, and can assist in speeding up the recovery from illness, wounds and operation sites, saving time and money, and reducing further stress on the animal. It is particularly useful for animals that have to be confined, for example, on box rest, kennels, or within a cage.
During the healing, the animal may go into a deep state of relaxation, and afterwards it may sleep more than usual, as its body lets go of trauma.

Behavioral and emotional problems
Healing also provides the support for animals to process and release emotional trauma that can be caused by fear, anxiety, stress or separation.
Despite the adaptability of many of our domesticated breeds, they are often unable to exhibit the natural behaviors inherent to their species. These natural behaviors have evolved to allow them to release the emotions caused by a stressful event.
For example, in a wild situation, if the flight or fight response is triggered by an attack from another animal, once the threat has subsided, the animal can retreat into the safety of its herd or pack where it can safely disperse the adrenalin and cortisone from its bloodstream.
In domestication, animals cannot behave in their natural way, and so they have to adapt and often compensate by absorbing stress within their bodies.
Over time, unresolved stress can lead to behavioral difficulties, such as defensiveness, nervousness, aggression, over-excitability, and withdrawal.
In the same way as it works for injury and illness, healing allows the animal to let go of unresolved stress, and return to a balanced state. It is even more effective if used in conjunction with re-training, so that the animal can learn new responses to help it cope.
