Healing Touch for Animals® Benefits
HTA techniques benefit our animals in many ways:

  • Help animals to understand appropriate behavior
  • Build the animal-human bond
  • Reduce stress and anxiety
  • Support animals through injuries, illnesses, physical and emotional trauma, abuse and grief
  • Build a solid foundation for cancer patients
  • Develop confidence for training and competition
  • Energetically support animals through the end of life transition

The energy based modality of Healing Touch has been recognized throughout the human medical community since 1989 and is used by more than 75,000 healthcare practitioners worldwide to help provide whole body wellness. These techniques are designed to enhance the healing process and do not replace traditional medical or veterinary healthcare, medical diagnosis, or medical treatment for illness.

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.

As with people, these techniques for animals are meant to complement traditional health care. They can bring about pain relief, stress reduction, accelerated wound healing and improve immune system function. One of the most fundamental effects students report is the deepening of the bond between them and their animal companions.

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.

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 medicine techniques.

The techniques shared in the courses are designed to enhance the 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.
