I’m Sarah N. Bertsch, MA, NCSAA, RMP & I love to share acupressure & Reiki sessions with dogs, cats, horses & more! I also offer Reiki sessions for humans (one of the best things you can do for your beloved animal is to make sure you yourself are well-grounded with harmonious Chi in your body, mind & spirit! I also love to teach workshops!
ACUPRESSURE is an ancient Chinese practice in which light pressure is applied at specific acupoints for the purpose of influencing the body’s flow of Chi (energy). It is very similar to acupuncture, but no needles!
REIKI is a Japanese method of connecting an individual to the higher Cosmic Energy for the purpose of enhancing body, mind & spirit. Reiki includes light, stationary touch or can be done entirely off-body & even long-distance.
BENEFITS from acupressure & Reiki may include: stress relief, reduced anxiety, decreased pain, mood elevation, mental clarity, emotional calming, improved flexibility, hastened recovery, reduced inflammation, increased circulation, improved digestion, strengthened immunity, healthier ageing & comfort at end-of-life.
Many of my canine clients use Optimal Animals to help with mobility, pain, anxiety, cardiac problems, allergies & cancer. Common issues for my feline clients are kidney/urinary conditions, behavior problems & general concerns of ageing. With my equine clients, I often engage with digestion issues, muscle-joint-hoof pain, allergies & herd dynamics. Virtually any physical or emotional imbalance may be addressed with Acupessure & Reiki.
