A Wild Way to Heal for Animals and People

At Wild Reiki and Shamanic Healing we advocate a holistic, alternative approach to help you and your animal companions enjoy greater quality of life.

A session assists in the healing process by stimulating wellness, vitality, balance, and peace. When appropriate, animal communication helps build bridges of understanding between you and your companion, offering support for physical and emotional and behavioral issues.

Many of the animal clients that come to me are struggling with aging issues and/or chronic illness such as Cushings, kidney failure, arthritis, cancer, IBD, etc. During the many years that I have been in practice, I have seen elderly animals and animals with chronic health issues benefit greatly from a Reiki and shamanic energy healing session, which can be helpful even in the final stages of life. (But don’t take my word for it, visit Testimonials to see what clients have said).

A session for your animal companion benefits both of you—relieving uncertainty and taking the pressure off you, and offering support for quality of life for your animal companion. Sessions are available by phone consultation. During our time together you will be able to ask questions and receive guidance on how to best meet your animal’s needs. We begin with a detailed intake, followed by energetic analysis and intuitive communication, which serves to guide the direction for the rest of session.

Modalities incorporated may include shamanic, Reiki or other clearing practices designed to remove layers of physical, emotional, or spiritual issues affecting and preventing growth, change or freedom from physical or emotional pain. Senior animals a specialty.

After an initial session, weekly or monthly on-going support sessions are available to assist in maintaining balance and quality of life while keeping the benefits affordable. Contact us for guidance on choosing the best solutions for your animal companion OR

Frequently Asked Questions:

How can a healing session help my animal companion?

Injury and accidents can happen at any stage of life, and a session helps accelerate recovery and reduce trauma. Physical bodies are vessels that weaken over time. For aging animals and people energy leaks occur more frequently and energy balances tend to fluctuate more. For those with pre-existing conditions such as Cushings, cancer, diabetes, kidney disease, arthritis, etc. energetic support tends to help stabilize fluctuations, and offers support for pain, inflammation, emotional issues, etc. A session offers a complete balancing of the energy fields, resulting in better overall quality of health and sense of well-being, i.e., a return to the normal pleasures of daily life.

What issues does energy healing help support?

Accelerated healing from injury/illness
Whether the issue is chronic or sudden, energy work assists the body in doing what it does best, self-heal; accelerating healing naturally, minimizing the side effects of medications, and offering quality enjoyment of life. Our methods work in harmony with that of the veterinary profession; you can have the best of both worlds and make considered choices that are right for you and your animal companion.

Aging issues
Promote relaxation and quality of life, and restore your animal’s joy in daily life. Getting older does not have to mean being in pain or giving up activities that make daily life fun.

End of life issues
Offer support for quality of life, facilitate and ease the dying process and assist in transition into Spirit.

Stronger immune system
It has been proven that a strong immune system is vital to vitality and quality of life.

Clear trauma or emotional or behavioral issues
When an animal experiences physical or emotional trauma (death of a loved one, accident, injury, abuse), energy flow can become stuck creating repeating patterns of response, causing them to relive the original pain. Clearing these “buttons” helps resolve behavioral issues and assists them in moving forward in their lives.

Surgical support
Maximize health pre- and post-surgery with energy work. A session prior to surgery helps balances the body on all levels (mental/emotional/physical/spiritual), minimizing trauma and helping to support the surgical process. After surgery a session can assist in accelerating physical healing, reducing or eliminating pain, facilitating the bodily process of detoxification from anesthesia or drugs, and releasing any emotional trauma associated with the surgery and its aftermath.

What is Reiki and Shamanic Healing?

Reiki and Shamanic Healing are forms of energy healing, ancient and powerful methods of natural healing used today in conjunction with, or as an alternative to, traditional medicine, that restore the balance among the physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental levels of all living beings. At the soul level they can also effect reconnection among all spiritual beings (animals included) and the universe. Energy healing is useful in maintaining as well as restoring balance—you don’t need to be in a state of dis-ease to benefit. Our practice incorporates several complementary modalities: Reiki, Peruvian and other shamanic practices, animal communication, Qi Gong, and Acutonics®.

Our clients are varied, from smaller beings—cats, dogs, birds, reptiles, fish, to the very large—horses, jaguars, and elephants. Every living being possesses an internal and external energy field. Energy healing addresses the energetic and physical systems by releasing blockages and past wounds and restoring balance—thereby facilitating physical and emotional healing and spiritual growth, allowing your animal companion or you to fully step into who you are becoming. Energy healing can be helpful for chronic situations where nothing else has been effective.

Client Stories


“It’s not so easy to see things when they happen gradually, but I’ve got my puppy back.”

Last year my 14 1/2 year old German shepherd dog was slowly but surely going downhill. No illnesses, she gets regular blood testing done but she lost some weight, had very painful arthritis and was depressed and downcast. She tended to stay away from the family.

Late in the year, she had a seizure; was on the couch but was still and frozen for about 5 minutes or hours. When she could move again we went to the vet who could find no evidence of a heart attack or a stroke.

I had read Rose’s book and blogs and felt her to be a very caring and Gifted Healer. While I had sent and received healing energy in shamanic circles and knew how powerful a help it could be, I was a little skeptical about work over thousands of miles (I live in Georgia). But I felt that if anyone could help, she was the one, and so I scheduled a phone session.

During our initial consultation, Rose asked me for some background information and then worked with Samantha doing scans, clearing blockages and replacing the bad energy with loving and healing energy. I liked that Rose was telling me what was going on and Samantha’s feelings. I could see her responding, but I got insights as well.

Shortly after the call started the other dogs and cats came into the room, found comfortable places, and then were silent and motionless the entire time. My impression was that all of us were surrounded by the warm golden glow of healing energy. I felt in a way all of us had benefited. Afterward Samantha looked very relaxed and comfortable and there—she definitely felt better.

But this is an elderly dog so Rose suggested regular treatments and we have been having these for several months now. The improvements in the arthritis were the first that were noticeable; she started moving more easily and no longer appeared to be in pain. Then I could see an improvement in her coat and she regained some weight. One of the suggestions Rose made was to improve the quality of her diet so now she eats better than I do.

A couple of weeks ago, I took her outside to brush and at that point really looked at her. It’s not so easy to see things when they happen gradually, but I’ve got my puppy back. Her eyes are glowing, she’s alert, can hold her own with the other dogs. She still has arthritis and gets tired easily but now she’s playful and happy and can beat me up the stairs. She even feels well enough to harass the cats, who are NOT amused.

I am so grateful to Rose for this healing, I knew the treatment would help Samantha but did not foresee such a total transformation. It’s truly a blessing and to have my beloved companion back and happy is a truly wonderous thing. I could wish for animal lovers to find such a wonderful Healer for their companions. I had a session for myself last week and I also feel a lot better.

“I was skeptical that distance Reiki sessions could work…”

My first experience in working with Rose when my own cat Ziggy was diagnosed with end stage lung cancer. While I had a little experience with Reiki I had never worked with anyone who did distance work and I was a little skeptical.

For Ziggy’s first treatment he sat on my lap and Rose worked with him while we were on the phone together. I could feel him relax under my hands and his breathing got better in a matter of the first few minutes. He even went and ate a little food after his treatment, which he had not been able to do before it.

Wow, I was amazed! Ziggy only lived a few more weeks but during that time Rose was able to make him feel better and enjoy life. He had started to withdraw from me but after treatments he would come close again and want pets and purr on my lap. The day we were to let him go, he was sitting in the corner staring at the wall, after a teary-eyed call to Rose, she was able to work with him and he came to me once more so that we could connect before he left this world.

My animals have all loved Rose’s work and I can always tell if they have just had a session by how relaxed and content they are. In addition Rose has been able to work with me to help heal some of the loss when my own animals have passed.

Rose is not only a talented healer but also provides much needed support when an animal is sick or dying. Having someone to help ease some of the pain and suffering and strengthen the connection between human and animal during this time helps both animals and their human companions. Rose is able to bridge the communication gap and bring animals and their people together.

While I often send hospice animals to Rose because I feel like she is very skilled at offering support and comfort during this time, I have also sent younger animals to her when I feel like I was missing something or they just need extra support in a difficult time or during illness. Rose’s work is very safe yet extremely powerful and can help even the most sensitive of animals.

I often say that Rose is part animal herself. I guess what I mean by that is that she has a special way of working with animals. Even the most shy and sensitive animals trust Rose and know that she can help them. She is able to tell just what an animal needs and offer what she can in helping them.

I often get funny looks when I refer to “my cat’s shaman” but I love that I know my animals have someone who can help keep them strong, grounded and healthy.

Helping animals and people since 1996

My practice endeavors to support animals and people in their healing processes: to aid in accelerating healing, reducing pain, and facilitating balance. As a pampamesayoq (earth steward) I also build bridges of understanding between people and animals, assisting in healing of the self and the world.

The heart of my work is restoration of balance, or bringing relationship back into ayni. That which is blocked is unblocked (tracking and releasing energy), that which is missing is returned, all with permission and in harmony and accordance with the client’s will and intent. Each of us is accountable and responsible for our actions and selves, the healer is only the facilitator, the client drives the session.
