Martha Birkett, Kathleen Mackay and Colton Hertzig are pleased to also offer the following healing treatments for animals:


Body Talk Access for Animals – with Martha Birkett and Colton Hertzig

When people first use the BodyTalk Access for Animals program, they notice changes in the general health and stress status of their animal companions. Sometimes the changes are dramatic, i.e. a highly agitated animal calms down immediately. Sometimes the improvements are gradual and do not register for a number of weeks, i.e. an animal’s severely itchy skin becomes healthier and the animal ceases obsessive scratching habits.

Once an animal’s health has stabilized into a healthier pattern, the preventive capabilities of the techniques help maintain that balance, preventing new health issues from arising. The Access techniques can also be used to complement an animal’s veterinarian care and accelerate healing.martha2

Linking Awareness – Intercellular Communication (Animal Communication) with Martha Birkett, Kathleen Mackay and Colton Hertzig

Animal Communication can offer in-depth insights into what humans, animals, nature, insects, & any sentient beings are thinking & feeling as well as important information regarding their behavior & responses to certain situations.  Linking Awareness – Intercellular Communication – A Healing Journey is: A Healing and Communication experience. By Linking Awareness though the Heart connection of one Sentient Being to another we experience deep communication & healing.

Linking Awareness also provides you with an opportunity to LISTEN & ‘talk’ with all Sentient Beings. Often non-verbal Sentient Beings can become frustrated at your lack of understanding their thoughts, emotions, & intentions when they directly communicate them to you, & so they may resort to methods that you do understand, via physical actions…

“Sentient Beings”; is a technical term in Buddhist discourse. Broadly speaking, it denotes beings with consciousness or sentience or, in some contexts, life itself. Furthermore, & particularly in Tibetan Buddhism & Japanese Buddhism, all beings (Including plant life & even inanimate objects or entities considered “spiritual” or “metaphysical” by conventional Western thought) are, or may be considered sentient beings.


Equine Massage & Craniosacral Therapy – with Kathleen Mackay

Just as the human body requires rehabilitation, relief from pain and stress, detoxification, improved circulation and joint mobility, so does the equine body. As with humans and our health care system, massage therapy for horses should be used in conjunction with veterinary health care. Equine Massage Therapy can not only help increase a horse’s performance, but also help prevent injury and decrease healing time from an existing condition.

Kathleen also combines lymphatic drainage,  craniosacral therapy and reiki into her massage therapy sessions – the combination of the four modalities is extremely effective at relieving tight and inflamed muscles. You can also have Kathleen check the fit of your saddle, to make sure that it is not negatively impacting the health of your horse.



Multi-Practitioner Equine Sessions

Kathleen Mackay and Colton Hertzig also offer unique mutli-practitioner sessions for your horse. Combining their skills of massage therapy, craniosacral therapy, reiki, linking awareness, body talk access for animals and hypnotherapy/hypnosis, they can quickly tune in to how your horse is feeling and reacting to the rider (and the rider’s state of mind) and improve the horse’s mental, emotional, spiritual and physical state.

Colton also offers unique sessions where he works with horse and rider – helping the two communicate together, discover what is blocking progress and make their bond stronger.
