Upon meeting the animal, the HTA Practitioner assesses the animal's energy system. The HTA Practitioner then uses the appropriate HTA techniques (using touch or near-body touch) to clear, balance and energize the animal's energy system. Typically, the first response noticed is relaxation, which is the foundation for optimal health and well-being.

HTA techniques benefit our animals in many ways, such as: help animals understand appropriate behavior, build the animal-human bond, reduce stress and anxiety, support animals through injuries, illnesses, physical and emotional trauma and abuse, build a solid support system for cancer patients, develop confidence for training and competition, support animals during end-of-life transition and much more!

Healing Touch for Animals

Healing Touch for Animals® (HTA) is a holistic approach influencing the health and well-being of animals through energy and intention. HTA techniques restore harmony balance to the animal's energy system while providing physical, emotional, mental and instinctual stability. Stabilizing the energy system allows the natural regulation of the immune system which encourages the healing process and promotes well-being.

Healing Touch for Animals® uses energy medicine therapies–recognized by the National Institutes of Health (NIH)–to integrate, balance and clear the energy body. HTA works by releasing endorphins to establish a deeper relaxation and state of being, allowing the body to  function at a greater level. By allowing muscles to relax, circulation is increased, sending more oxygen, nutrients, and hormones into the body to support healing. HTA techniques work on all levels of the body: physical, mental, emotional and instinctual. These techniques allow the animals to come into a deeper instinctual presence and knowing of their body.


Understanding the way the body responds during energy medicine facilitation provides the fundamentals of how healing occurs. This chart illustrates a full perspective of the body’s reactions to energy medicine.

Using energetic vocabulary, this chart explains the body’s physiological response during an energy medicine treatment. Following the chart in a clockwise direction, beginning with “Relaxes Body” and ending with “Regulates Immune System”, this chart demonstrates the body’s reactions during an energy healing session/treatment.
