Healing Touch

Healing Touch, a hand-mediated complementary energetic approach to healing, is administered with the intention for the person's highest good in mind, body and spirit. The Healing Touch Program, developed by Janet Mentgen, RN, BSN, is endorsed by the American Holistic Nurses Association. The goal of Healing Touch is to restore harmony and balance in the client's energy system to help the person self-heal. Healing Touch affects the person physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Healing Touch for Animals

Healing Touch for Animals™ is an energy medicine modality combining holistic philosophies, techniques and applications to promote energy balance and healing of our animals. Developed by Carol Komitor, Healing Touch for Animals™ assists with injuries, illness, and surgeries, wound healing, behavioral problems and stress related issues.

Pet Massage

Learn PetMassage™ techniques to enhance your pet's quality of life and well-being. Be your pet's first line of defense for healthcare. We teach owners to work on their pets. Our techniques are gentle and effective, based on knowledgeable, compassionate touch, positional release, acupressure, energy balancing and gentle fascia releases. PetMassage™, developed by Jonathan Rudinger, RN, LMT, is endorsed by the International Association of Animal Massage and Body Work


Reiki, a universal gift of light and healing, is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. Reiki treats the whole person, including body, emotions, mind and spirit. The practitioner, using light hand placements, is the vehicle through whom energy flows into the client

Animal Communication

Direct telepathic communication will enhance the understanding, joy and companionship between you and your dog, cat, horse, bird or other species. Developed by Penelope Smith, animal communication is recognition of the spiritual essence of animals and respecting them as intelligent beings.

Infant Massage

As a parent, loving relative, or caregiver of an infant, you want to see your child flourish. Touch is as important as food for healthy mental and physical development - a fact clearly supported by both ancient tradition and contemporary research. Massage is attentive, pleasurable touch that promotes your baby's wellbeing while increasing your ability to respond to his or her needs. Learning to massage your baby is an enjoyable way to enhance your infant's development, deepen loving communication between you and your child and provide an opportunity for you and your baby to develop relaxation skills that can last a lifetime.
