Paws for Joy
for humans and animals
through energy work.
Throughout my lifetime, I have been blessed with family, friends, playmates, and teachers, many of whom have been animals. I have appreciated a special kinship with animals since I was a young child. So when my animal companions led me to energy work, I listened.
I am a Reiki Master Practitioner and Teacher of the Usui system of Reiki, Usui Shiki Ryoho, honoring the Reiki lineage of Usui, Hayashi, and Takata. I received my three levels of training and attunements from Reiki Master Libby Barnett at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Massachusetts, and at the Reiki Healing Connection in New Hampshire.
In addition, I am a Healing Touch for Animals(R) Certified Practitioner, and completed my training with Carol Komitor, its founder.
I have also received training through Healing Touch International, which provides similar techniques of energy work developed for use with people.
My training and experience have shown me that there are infinite ways that energy work can positively affect, support, and empower each of us. I am grateful to be able to offer services and classes to help people and animals live in balance and harmony. Energy work fascinates my mind and nourishes my spirit.
I am also an independent distributor of Young Living Essential Oils. These high quality therapeutic grade essential oils are a wonderful complement to the methods of energy work I offer to people and animals.
I am a Registered Reiki, Healing Touch for Animals(R), and Healing Touch Professional with the Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals, and honor its Code of Ethics.
In addition to offering these valuable services through Awakened Harmony, LLC d/b/a Paws for Joy, I use these methods for self-care, and offer them to family and friends, my companion animals, and in a volunteer capacity.
I offer sessions of energy work to humans and animals, and offer Reiki training, with the intent to help others enhance their well-being, harmony, and enjoyment of life.
Daisy, Dawn, and Jack enjoy the great outdoors.

Dr. Oz and Reiki: During a segment of his television program, Dr. Oz encouraged viewers to "Try Reiki" as his #1 doctor's order. He and his family are very familiar with Reiki -- his wife is a Reiki Master, and for decades Dr. Oz has invited alternative practitioners to complement patients' care in his medical practice. He refers to energy medicine as the medicine of the future, and thinks it "...may be ultimately the most important alternative medicine treatment of all."
