What is Healing Touch for Animals®?

Animals experience life like we do. They know how to love, how to please and share joy. They can feel heartbreak and sadly, some experience real trauma. Healing Touch for Animals® (HTA) is a safe, gentle and natural approach to animal health and wellness through each stage of life.

Healing Touch for Animals® techniques supports the animal's energetic body so the physical body and mental strength can maintain the health and wellness they deserve. Healing Touch for Animals® teaches students how to assess an animal's energy system followed by specific techniques (using touch, near-touch, essential oils and/or sound therapy) to clear balance and strengthen the energy system. These unique techniques are excellent for the following pet care:

Our Mission
Healing Touch for Animals® is dedicated to provide training on how to assist animals with their health and well-being, their behavioral issues, their physical, mental and emotional healing, and the enhancement of the animal/human bond through energetic connections and the application of energy therapy techniques.

Veterinary Professionals
Healing Touch for Animals® techniques can be integrated into both holistic and traditional veterinary practices. HTA is a service that can be easily applied by veterinarians, technicians and/or HTA Practitioners. Healing Touch for Animals® courses introduce HTA techniques to course participants and demonstrate how HTA and energy medicine can be easily used in a veterinary practice.

The techniques shared in the courses are designed to enhance the self healing process and do not replace traditional medical or veterinary health care, medical diagnosis or medical treatment for illness. The teaching promotes a cooperative model that bridges holistic animal health care with traditional veterinary medicine. Refer to a licensed medical or veterinary practitioner for medical care.

The HTA techniques were developed by Carol Komitor under Komitor Method of Healing, Inc. The concepts and techniques come from Carol's experiential understanding developed through working with clientele, both people and animals, her studies and her use of other energetic modalities.

Healing Touch for Animals® (HTA) is privately owned and is not governed by any other organization. Healing Touch for Animals® endorses the Healing Touch Programcurriculum and the healing work that is facilitated for our human population.
