BELOVED COMPANION is for you if your cherished pet has received a terminal diagnosis, may have received treatment and are coming to terms with the idea that despite those efforts, their body continues its decline, or is in late-stage terminal illness.
Saying goodbye to a cherished pet so interwoven into your life is crushing. There is no escaping the hard parts, but they are part of the unwritten contract we all sign when we give our hearts and lives to these endearing souls. While there is no way to be ready for the overwhelming sadness, painful emptiness and agonizing sorrow, there are ways to prepare both practically and spiritually.
I offer the same Living Fully services for your companion as I do for a dying person with some minor differences. Together we will explore the benefits and limitations of continuing treatments, when to engage hospice and palliative care services, pain management options, comfort care verses "natural death" verses euthanasia, after death care and memorial planning, how to navigate the changes and resulting "new normals" that continue to unfold, legacy projects, what possibilities for growth and healing exist in engaging the end of life process, and preparing you and your loved ones for your pet's transition.
During this session, we can explore possibilities for moving forward together.
Beloved Companion Session (90-minutes) - $175
You will leave our session with clarity around how to best support your pet on their journey to the Next Place.
COMPASSIONATE INTENT is for your beloved companion if he or she is dealing with emotional, physical, mental or spiritual trauma such as a loss of an owner due to death, abandonment, abuse, an injury, surgery, or terminal illness. Reiki will help to relieve symptoms, reduce pain, and promote healing on all levels. Reiki is also helpful for reducing anxiety and stress, easing hyperactivity and improving behavior problems. Just like with humans, Reiki eases the transition to death when physical healing isn’t possible; gifting your pet with calm, comfort, peace, and well-being.
I am particularly drawn to performing Reiki on animals because they resonate at a higher vibration than humans and they attract us into their lives so that we may learn and heal as they offer us their unconditional love.
During the animal's session, I will perform Reiki using the hands-off technique. My hands will hover slightly above the body delivering the same treatment benefits. This way, the animal controls the treatment, either accepting Reiki from a distance, or settling themselves against my hands.
Compassionate Intent - $99 for the first hour and $50 per hour thereafter
Your companion will leave our session having experienced a deep state of peace as Reiki clears imbalances, allowing for new and harmonious patterns of health and wellness to emerge.
