Light Healing Touch

Light Healing Touch (LHT) is an energy-based form of healing that is useful for pets with emotional traumas and also animals with an unknown past (i.e. rescues, those with anxiety, etc.). This biofield (the magnetic field around the body) therapy supports physical, emotional, mental and spiritual healing and health.

We can use touch to influence the energy system, specifically the energy field that surrounds the body, and the energy centers that control the energy flow from the energy field to the physical body. By balancing the chakras and smoothing the auric fields, this therapy clears, energizes, and balances the human and environmental energy fields, thus affecting physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health and healing.

The Importance of Eastern Medicines

Many times we forget about all the basic forms of healing that were commonly used before the medical field took over in the mid-1900’s. For thousands of years, natural healing methods and therapies have been used for our bodies’ innate healing process. Herbs, energy, aromatherapy, hydrotherapy and other forms of healing have all been used by the Chinese, Native Americans and Egyptians for thousands of years.

While Western forms of medicine rely heavily on pharmaceuticals, invasive surgeries and techniques, diagnostic testing, and evidence-based medicine, Eastern medicine uses non-invasive techniques to heal the body on its own terms with the ultimate goal of achieving homeostasis. Our Eastern philosophies promote holistic healing by addressing mental, emotional and physical concerns. To become truly balanced, the body needs balance in all of these areas.

Treating the body physically may be the easiest of all forms. You can begin to feel and see physical changes sometimes before the mental ability to do so catches up. The physical condition is the body’s “last resort” of notification that something is out of balance and needs attention. It’s the body’s last red flag before a serious medical condition is often diagnosed. Treating the physical body also includes treating the etheric field or the aura that surrounds each energetic particle that is on this earth.

How Light Healing Touch Works

Healing touch is based on a heart-centered caring relationship in which the practitioner and client (person or animal) come together energetically to facilitate the client’s health and healing. The goal of Healing Touch is to restore balance and harmony in the energy system and place the client in a position to self heal.

As our physical ailments are often directly related to our auric field, an LHT practitioner will often balance chakras during a session to have the correlating psychological function working properly in conjunction with them. LHT practitioners work in the auric fields to sooth energy leaks, tentacles, hooks, arrows, and other unbalanced energy. As such, the body will have minimal physical contact during a session.

During a Healing Touch session, the practitioner simply acts as a conduit, allowing the Universal Energy to flow out through his/her hands in order to remove any energy blocks present in the client.

The Benefits of Healing Touch

In today’s world, each animal and human need extra care to repair our damaged energy fields. We are continuously bombarded with electromagnetic pollution, contact with other unbalanced individuals, and our own stored trauma or maybe even a terrible situation that found us. Light Healing Touch is a modality with which we can begin the healing of the human and animal bodies. LHT is often used to repair the auric field when there has been surgery, trauma, emotional damage (ie: shelter life, abuse, puppy mill situation, etc.) or an overall life imbalance.

LHT is helpful for animals with hot spots, sores, post-surgery for recovery, swollen glands, aggression, hormonal imbalance, cancer treatments, end phase of life, anxiety, and relieves chronic pain.

It can be used to:

  • Reduce pain
  • Reduce anxiety
  • Enhance recovery from surgery
  • Improve mobility after surgery
  • Relieve tension, stress and depression
  • Provide support during chemotherapy and radiation therapy
  • Strengthen the immune system
  • Minimize the effects of trauma and chronic pain
  • Relieve stuck energy and promote emotional balancing
  • Support the dying process
  • Deepen spiritual connection and support spiritual transition

Even if your pet doesn’t have any complaints, they would still benefit from a session. LHT allows the body to relax and work through emotions stuck in the body and areas of pain with minimal contact. Most animals that we have had the blessing to work with typically end up snoozing through the session as they seem to enjoy the work.
