Healing Philosophy and Tools
Wendy’s approach to animal wellness looks at the entire environment of an animal to help them live the best life possible. Her animal wellness evaluation includes an assessment of meridian imbalances and nutrition through kinesiology, emotional well-being through communication and lifestyle management. Using these techniques, she determines the best course of action to bring the animal into a healthy state of balance. This might include essential oil therapy, cranio sacral therapy, energy work, red light therapy, behavior modification and nutritional recommendations. She is one of a few certified animal aroma therapists practicing in the United States today.
Equine Cranio Sacral Therapy and Intuitive Healing
CranioSacral therapy is a gentle hands-on treatment that frees restricted motion of the bones of the skull, vertebral column and pelvis by working with the spinal covering and fluid. The technique was originally developed by Osteopaths for humans and has since been transferred to animals.
When restrictions in the Cranio Sacral system are released through this treatment, the central nervous system is improved allowing it to better relieve stress and strengthen resistance to disease. Mobility is increased, calmness and homeostasis return. Emotional trauma held in cells is often released.
Wendy uses a very light touch, energy and intuition to guide the session. She gives guidance and support to the self healing process in the animal. This restoration and healing enables the animal to regain its physical and mental balance.
The number of sessions depends on the degree of restrictions and the animals ability to release them. However, many of Wendy’s clients have seen significant improvement in attitude, ability to work, gait issues, headshaking and fears in as little as one treatment. Animals that require frequent chiropractic adjustments typically begin to hold their adjustments longer.
Wendy is focusing on supporting Equine Rescue organizations at this time. You can use the contact page to set up an appointment.
Wendy received her CS training and certifications through Maureen Rogers and the Upledger Institute from 2004-2007.

“Thank you again for coming to the barn and doing a cs treatment for Dobby. Just wanted to share with you that we went riding today on a trail that has a sportsman’s gun club nearby. Previously, the gun shots really bothered Dobby and made him very nervous. Today – he didn’t even blink an eye when he heard the shots! The difference was dramatic and my thought is that he did so well because of the treatment on Thursday.”

“Tango slept most of the way home this time after her healing session on Wednesday. Then she was really hungry and thirsty when we got home. She is doing a lot better, able to stretch out more. She is moving better. We did a mile this morning on the hiking trail. You are a very gifted individual. It is amazing to watch her react while you are working with her.”

“Just wanted to let you know that Charlie seems to be improved . . . the other night he lay down in the pasture, completely relaxed, and let me walk up to him, sit next to him, and pet him. He let out a big sigh, laid his head on the ground and closed his eyes. He’s never done that before. It was so neat; I had tears in my eyes. Thanks for what you’ve done so far! ”

“I guess I should start with Thank You! I arrived back at the ranch for Labor Day weekend. This is the first time I have been with Siobhan since you worked on her a few weeks ago. You have made a tremendous difference in her. We have gone on two trail rides in the woods. She has been perfectly calm, but alert. I was able to ride her with a very loose rein. I could tell she was interested in looking at everything, especially things on her left side. This morning, when riding along the lake shore, we spooked a blue Heron that neither of us saw. We were maybe 20 feet from it when it flew over the lake. Siobhan took one quicker step, then watched it fly. You can guess what her old reaction would have been! You can almost feel the calmness in her – something I have surely never felt with her before. Elsie told me that for a few days after you left, Siobhan would stand off by herself for long periods of time. Also, for about two weeks, she was very calm in the barn. No kicking or beating on her stall. I also noticed that she is opening her left eye wider. In looking at pictures, I had never really noticed that she tended to squint a bit. I was not expecting this level of results. If only I had known about her pain before. For several years I have been attempting to train her through it, when all along her focus could not have been completely on me.”
