Animal healing is a complementary therapy and is not a substitute for good veterinary care.
The therapist usually put their hands on the body of the animal to help the animal rebalance their vital energies towards releasing tension and/or pain from their body allowing the recovery process to take place.
Animal healing can also be done remotely, using a photograph of the animal. The results are often very similar.
Is animal healing legal?
The Veterinary Surgery Act of 1966 prohibits anyone, other than a qualified veterinary surgeon from treating animals, including diagnosis of ailments and giving advice on such diagnosis.
However, the healing of animals by contact healing; by the laying of hands or distant healing is legal. The Protection of Animals Act 1911 requires that if an animal clearly needs treatment from a veterinary surgeon the owner must obtain this.
To give emergency First Aid to animals for the purpose of saving life or relieving pain is permissible under the Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966 Schedule 3.
When your animal has been to the vet, healing can be then required. It will enhance any treatment as it is non-invasive and gentle.
Is distant healing and hands on healing the same thing?
Yes, hands on healing or distant healing are the same therapy used in different ways. They both can ease pain and discomfort on different levels; the mind, body and spirit. Animals respond quite well to healing and improvement can occur within a few sessions.
Oephebia is a natural healer (although she is a qualified animal healer) and she uses a technique called "compassionate release", a mixture of animal communication and healing which works very well on behavioural problems, emotional traumas etc; helping the animal to release the past. She also uses traditional healing techniques (like chakra balancing for instance) during a session (distant or hands on).
What will happen to my pet during a healing session (hands on or distant)?
Your pet will be doing whatever they want during a distant healing, as Oephebia works remotely on their energy field.
During a hands-on healing session, your pet may investigate Oephebia's hands or push their body into her hands, or stay away from her and observe her. There are no rules, your pet will be in charge of the session and Oephebia will work with them with her hands on their body or just with them even if they are sitting away from her.
During a face to face healing session, your pet might go into a deep state of relaxation or even sleep.
All animals are treated with love, compassion and respect.
Can healing cure my terminally ill pet?
Healing is a gentle complementary therapy; however it has its limitations and does not provide miracles, particularly where terminal illnesses are concerned or when organs fail.
What it does do, is to alleviate the pain and support the animal on the emotional/spiritual and/or physical level, helping your beloved companion to feel at peace. This is one of the most caring gifts you can give to your animal before their passing on.
Healing session: distant or home visit?
You can book healing sessions by blocks of five. Oephebia will send distant healing and/or use compassionate release for five consecutive days. She will then email you each day to let you know what happened during a healing/compassionate release session.
This method is obviously useful if you are living on the other side of the UK or the world as healing has no boundaries of distance. The sessions are equally powerful and effective.
For this type of session, Oephebia will need you to send her by email or snail mail a recent picture of your animal, without people on it, preferably looking at the camera.
For people living in the Greater London area your pet can be catered for in the comfort of your own home; which may be preferable to minimise the stress of travelling for your pet.
This can be valuable for instance; when your pet is recovering from surgery or any other trauma or when your pet experiences stress or anxiety or simply when your pet has reached their golden years and need some additional TLC.
Face to face healing session will last one hour, depending on the problem and on the animal. Some animals will enjoy a long session while others may prefer a short session.
