Helping Your Pets Transition Feeling Cherished & Supported

TRIBUTE TO BAILEY: 1/25/2006-3/28/22

In one of her subsequent sessions, I intuited spine degeneration. This was causing her a lot of discomfort and was making it increasingly difficult for her to walk. I did a healing focusing on that and imprinted her with a
