#FiveSibes Flashback Friday: A Journey Toward A Husky's Holistic Healing

Flashback: Gibson and Hu-Mommy, December 2014

With this being the month of Purple Day® and awareness for dogs with Canine Epilepsy, I was going over my journey with my beloved Gibson. Today's Flashback photo is when Gibson and I did a long-distance Reiki session with Marta Banat of All Paws Massage in Canada. I am an advocate of holitic healing and natural care, but I had never had any experience with Reiki. I went into it journaling the event, and you can read all about our experience HERE in my post. It was a wonderful, peaceful bonding time for my boy and I, and when you share your life with a dog that has epilepsy, all the natural methods of surrounding them in a peaceful environment is so important. This is now a moment in time that resides in my heart forever, and am forever grateful for my daughter capturing his moment on film.

  3. Animal Reiki in particular is such a bonding and beautiful experience and from what I've seen, a wonderfully effective therapy.

  4. Thank you for participating in the Friendly Fill-Ins! Such warriors and their caregivers really are great inspirations. We can learn so much from them.
