What is healing?

Lisa with horseWhat is Healing?

Healing is a natural, safe, non-invasive energy therapy that balances mind, body and soul and stimulates the body's own natural healing processes. Healing can help ease physical and emotional pain, reduce stress, lift mood, increase energy and instil a sense of peace and calm.

The healing approach considers the individual as a whole rather than a collection of symptoms and works on the physical, psychological and emotional levels to enable holistic healing. Healing complements conventional medicine, has no negative side effects, is wonderfully relaxing and can be delivered without necessitating direct physical contact so can be particularly beneficial to nervous or stressed animals that cannot tolerate being touched.

The healer links to natural healing energy which flows through their hands to the person or animal to specific areas as required by the individual. When animals receive healing they often display several of the following behaviours:-

  • Looking to the healers hands
  • Dropping the head
  • A slow blink
  • Closing the eyes
  • Yawning
  • Sighing
  • Licking lips
  • Random twitches
  • Stretching
  • Reduction in respiration rate
  • Show general signs of relaxation
  • Healing can also stimulate the animal to eat, drink or groom.

Healing can be equally effective for people. When people receive healing they often report:-

  • Deep relaxation
  • Heat
  • Tingling
  • Pressure
  • Cold
  • A sense of peace and wellbeing
  • Feeling rejuvenated and energised

You do not have to be ill to benefit from healing as it also helps support good health and general wellbeing. For more information or to discuss whether healing could benefit you, your horse or your pet please contact me on 01672 516226 or 07752 841383 or email info@understandingpets.co.uk.
