Level 2 Course Overview

The Level 2 Healing Touch for Animals® (HTA) course builds on the Level 1 basics. You will learn more advanced techniques and new concepts, including sound therapy for the energy field, space clearing, and self-care.

Energetic Detective Work, the body systems, personality identification and characteristics, and specific conditions are addressed to help choreograph a full HTA session. You will learn about grief, how it affects animals, and the causes and solutions available for grounding and focus issues.

You will learn to work with traumatized animals and release the energetic congestion around trauma. The Euthanasia Protocol is discussed, thus providing a step-by-step process to assist an animal’s owner through the tough end-of-life and grieving process.

Upon completion of the course, you will receive a Certificate of Completion and are able to begin the process to become a Certified Practitioner through the Healing Touch for Animals Certification Program.

Level 2 Course Structure


The Fundamentals class includes a review of all HTA Level 1 techniques. The introduction to Energetic Detective Work is then demonstrated to help identify the cause of complex energy therapy issues, plus the significance of the systems of the body. Specific health conditions with corresponding body systems are discussed.

Finding the specific energy center related to a blockage that corresponds with a chakra will help you work more effectively. Examples are offered to help recognize the process of finding the culprit chakra.

Small Animal

The Small Animal Class teaches you further concepts and philosophies of Healing Touch for Animals®, with an emphasis on different ways to assess the animal’s energy system as you evaluate how to formulate a healing session.

The new techniques will help an animal with grounding, trauma release, and spine/skeletal conditions. You will work with tuning forks to clear the energy system for both animals and humans. The process of clearing physical spaces with the tuning forks will also be taught.

You are encouraged to bring your well-behaved dog to the in-person class (not mandatory).

Large Animal
The in-person Large Animal Class features hands-on experience with horses as you delve deeper into understanding the HTA techniques and anchor the knowledge gained from the Small Animal Class.

This class provides an opportunity to experience the large energy system of the horse, which will heighten your energetic awareness. At the same time, you increase your skills as a qualified practitioner of HTA.

Horse safety instruction is provided during the in-person class.
