About Level 1

The Level 1 Healing Touch for Animals
® (HTA) course is for everyone interested in improving the lives of their animals through energy therapy. During the two-and-half day course, you will be introduced to the concepts of healing energy, and you will then apply that knowledge as you work with dogs and horses. You also will learn how these techniques can be used on all animals – including birds, reptiles, aquatics and exotics.

The weekend course costs $530, if you register early, and breaks down like this:

Friday evening
6-10 p.m.
Introduction to Healing Touch Class: Learn the basics of energy medicine facilitation. This portion of the course will prepare you with the Healing Touch essentials, so you are ready to learn energy medicine concepts for animals during the small animal and large animal classes.

Saturday all day
9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Small Animal Class: You will learn the techniques used to balance and clear an animal’s energy system, while working hands on with dogs. You also will learn how energy differs among species and how to use specific energy vocabulary, so you can explain the concepts, application and science behind how HTA works. Your well-behaved dog is invited to the Small Animal Class.

Sunday all day
9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Large Animal Class: You will work hands-on with horses as you delve deeper into the understanding of the HTA techniques. The Large Animal Class provides an opportunity to experience the large energy system of the horse, which students have reported helped them gain a greater awareness of what was happening as they applied the HTA techniques. Horse safety instruction is provided during the HTA Level 1 Course, providing beginners safety awareness as they develop a comfort level around large animals.
