Equine and small animal healing

What is healing?

Every living being has a life force or spirit - a field of energy.  If there is a physical problem blockages appear in the energy field and the centres of energy become out of rhythm.  The emotional state also affects this field. The healer is the channel to link to the horse’s energy field and direct a positive flow of universal energy to release negative energy and blockages. Healing is a simple, safe and supportive energy therapy that can be used for any condition with no adverse side effects.  Healing helps the animal to access its own resources to stimulate further healing, giving a sense of wellbeing and peace, harmonising the body emotionally, physically and mentally. It works alongside other therapies and can be used safely for all conditions.

Benefits of healing:

Boosts the immune system. Gets to the root cause of a problem, not just the presenting condition. Brings out the positive aspects of the character, allowing the animal to express its emotions and release negative energy from the past. Helps improve the rate of soft tissue and bone repair in a physical illness or injury and before or after an operation. For pain relief. Healing releases natural painkillers - endorphins and aids relaxation. For trauma and shock. For the maintenance of good health. Healing can be given preventatively - energy becomes imbalanced before an illness or disease becomes apparent and is therapeutic particularly for elderly horses. Healing can be successful when other treatments have failed. At times of stress and depression. For example a change of owner and/ or home, loss of companion and death. The animal will receive healing at the level needed at that time. It may be necessary to make changes to the animal’s environment and management for the healing to be beneficial long term. In some cases it is advisable for owners to have healing as well so they can connect on a deeper level with their animal.

Responses to healing:

Becoming sleepy and relaxed in response to the release of endorphins being released from the brain into the blood stream.  Sighing. Licking and chewing. Yawning. Nostrils and whiskers quiver. The facial muscles relax – around the eyes, the mouth sags. The ears move back a little indicating the animal’s attention and acceptance of the healing. The animal looks round at the body. Muscle twitching. Stretching of the neck, back and one or both hind legs. The back drops and a horse may rest a hind leg.

How often should healing be given?

For chronic problems healing can be given every few days.

For acute problems or long term  rest for illness or injury healing can be given every day. Healing may be successful after one treatment.  However, usually more than one treatment is beneficial as results can progress over a period of time. What conditions can be helped with healing? Shock or grief. Change of owner or home. Past ill treatment. Injuries and accidents. Pain relief. Illness including terminal illness. Old age, to reduce pain or suffering.

Disclaimer - please note:

Healing is not a substitute for veterinary care and advice. Healing cannot regenerate severe organ or tissue damage or prevent the horse’s natural life span coming to an end. The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons recognises as acceptable, in terms of the Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966, the complementary treatment of animals by contact healing.
“I have known Lynne for some time so when I became concerned about my two year old German Shepherd it seemed natural to ask her advice.  Delta had become fear aggressive with visitors and other dogs and we didn't know why.  As a young dog she had been very friendly and happy go lucky. Lynne has visited several times now and each time leaves Delta very calm and relaxed. Overall her general demeanour is much improved and I can see a light at the end of the tunnel.  I would not hesitate to recommend Lynne to anyone with an animal that needs help.  Thank you. Debbie, Mark Cross.  Deroaust German Shepherds.”
