Pat treats horses and larger animals at their homes and small animals at her office located at 230 14th Street East in Kalispell (Take 3rd Avenue East to 14th Street. Turn west on 14th Street. Pat’s office is a small slate-colored building on the south side of the street. Go in the front door down the hall to the left.) Map
Energy Balancing is a technique of finding imbalances in the body by using a simple form of muscle-testing. When imbalances are found and energy is put in, it increases the body's ability to balance and heal itself more rapidly. Pat treats horses, dogs, cats and other animals, by appointment, using a variety of energy modalities that are summarized below. First, she establishes a connection with the animal, so that it feels comfortable and as relaxed as possible. Then she uses a muscle test to find imbalances in the system. She determines which method or combination of methods to use to help the system come into balance. The treatment is non-invasive and most often very comfortable for the animal. Pat believes in the team approach to treating animals. She will ask you about your observations and the observations and recommendations of your veterinarian.
Stress Point Therapy: Overexertion and tension can lead to the development of energy blockages and stress points. When these points are located and pressed, a release takes place, energy blocks are removed, pain may subside, and the body is better able to heal itself more rapidly.
Muscle Releasing and Energy Connecting: When muscles get tight it is not only painful but often decreases range of motion and stresses other areas of the body. By finding and pressing the area, using the photonic light or lasering the release points, the muscles relax and healing takes place. Sometimes for this to happen two or more points must be stimulated in conjunction with one another. This is called connecting energy.
Reiki Therapy: REIKI (ray key) is a Japanese word meaning Universal Life Energy. The Usui System or Reiki is a traditional, natural healing art, which utilizes this gentle and powerful energy to promote healing. The Reiki practitioner’s hands are placed on or slightly above the body to transfer energy to the body’s magnetic field. This energy works to soothe, clear stress and heal. Pat is a Reiki Master, the term given to those who are initiated and trained in the highest degree of Reiki and who teach this healing art. More on Reiki Therapy
Energy Medicine: Energy Medicine is a system of tapping, sweeping and holding techniques, developed by Donna Eden, that help shift the body’s energies and keep them balanced and maintained. Some of the work involves using the meridians of the body.
Veterinary Neural Integration Technique (VNIT, formerly known as VOM) is a healing technology developed by Dr. William Inman, DVM, CVCP, that locates areas of the animals nervous system that has fallen out of communication, and re-establishes neuronal communication and thus induces healing. This technique is non-invasive and cannot hurt an animal, yet it finds and reduces all neuronal subluxations. All neuronal subluxations have a pathological reflex demonstrably associated with them.
A handheld device, called an activator, is used to provide the exact amount of force to find and reduce subluxations present in the joints of the animal. It cannot create a subluxation. It can only flip the neuronal switches that are off, on.
A shutoff nervous system can be the cause of many conditions and diseases in animals. The VNIT protocol can, in many cases reduce or eliminate symptoms by reducing what is causing them. The protocol is day 1, 7, 14, 21, 42, 74. The protocol is important for lasting health because of the body’s pseudo-memory, where the system has learned to operate at a compromised capacity. However, just one treatment can produce significant results. Converting the body’s pseudo-memory back to normal takes a succession of treatment. Pat has been trained in this method by Dr.William Inman, DVM
Myofascial Release: Myofascia is the muscles and the connective tissue sheaths that surround them. Fascia is composed of ground substance, collagen, and elastin. The ground substance is what surrounds every cell and is in direct communication with each cell. It creates the interstitial space that transfers information into and out of the cells via specialized chemicals and transport mechanisms. When fascia is injured or a subluxation occurs the connective tissue undergoes a change from a gel, it’s normal state, to a sol or solid, non-communicating substance. Using an instrument called the VetroStim stimulates the tissue and return the cells to a gel and the communicative state. By converting the solidified connective tissue back to communicative gel cellular relief of the pathological event is achieved and healing ensues. Muscle spasms take time to release as soon as the subluxation is reduced with the VNIT therapy. Using the VetroStim is able to do this immediately. Myofacial release can speed up the VNIT protocol. Pat has been trained in this method by Dr. William Inman, DVM.
Cold Light Laser: Light amplification by stimulated emission rays or L.A.S.E.R. is a means of directing highly concentrated coherent light at a concise wavelength into the muscles, tissues, organs, connective tissue, formed elements of the blood and living matrix of the body. Cells in the living matrix communicate throughout the total body via coherent light to direct all aspects of healing, growth regulation of metabolism and general cell survival. Cold light laser has the ability to emulate the exact methodology that the cells themselves use to heal. The type of cold light lasers that Pat uses has a positive effect at the cellular level, organ level and the symptomatic and therapeutic level.
In order for cold light
laser therapy to be effective the correct frequency must be used. Pulse lasers
are the preferred method because they provide the specific frequency necessary
to heal specific areas. Pat uses two different lasers: The LazrPuls, which
has line type light and many frequencies from which to choose and the Respond
light laser, which pulses through various frequencies. It is not possible
to hurt or injure an animal with either one of these lasers. Pat has had training
in laser therapy by Dr.William Inman, DVM
Bio-Pulse Magnetic Field Therapy: Pat uses the Respond Bio-Pulse Deluxe 4000 magnetic blanket with the legging , hoof and hock coils and the Myers Neck Wrap. This treatment is very effective for athletes as well as horses experiencing muscle stiffness, arthritic conditions, joint problems, spurs, spavins, abscesses, navicular, tendon and ligament injuries, poor circulation and trauma.
Dot Magnets – Dot magnets are very small dots of magnetized metal. They come in 1000, 4600, and 6000 gauss. When taped on the skin in strategic spots detected by the muscle-test, they can accentuate healing.
Photonic Therapy: This therapy is administered by using a flashlight-type instrument created by Dr. Brian McLaren, B.V.Sc., Grad Dip. Acu. “The energy of the light (photons) is transformed into electrical energy by the connective tissue under the skin. The electrical energy is transmitted to the brain by the nerves. Stimulating specific combinations of points on the skin, will cause the brain to release particular hormones and other chemicals to relieve pain, increase immune response, and promote healing”. Combining the detection system of muscle-testing with this tool is very effective.
Equine Massage Therapy: Pat took equine massage therapy training from Buster Harlow in 1997. She uses some of the muscle-release techniques in her work and shows these to the care-givers of the horses she treats.
