Harmonizing Touch

for Senior Cats

As our beloved cats age, they, too- just like people- develop age-related aches and pains and health conditions. Whether your cat has age-related health care needs or continues to thrive without any symptoms, most senior cats need additional support for their physical, mental and emotional well-being. In addition to regular vet visits, healthy nutrition, age-appropriate exercise and quality time with your cat, harmonizing the life force energy in the body can help maintain and enhance your cat’s health and well-being.

Harmonizing Touch can help maintain and enhance your cat’s health and well-being.

Harmonizing Touch integrates the ancient healing traditions of Jin Shin Jyutsu and acupressure together with elements of Tellington Touch. It is a gentle yet powerful healing art!

Harmonizing Touch aims to harmonize the life force energy in your cat’s body. It does not “fix” anything. By simply “BE-ing” with your cat, listening to his or her energy and applying this gentle art, harmony of the whole BE-ing is restored and healing can take place.

 

“The harmonious flow of “chi” or life force energy throughout the body is key for optimal health and well-being.”

 

Applied on a regular basis, Harmonizing Touch can support healthy aging and help maintain the good health of your beloved cat. Once health challenges have developed, Harmonizing Touch has its place as complementary service to the treatments your vet is prescribing. It invites the body to heal itself.

 

Many senior pets are afflicted by health issues, such as:

  • Joint disease

  • Digestive and gastrointestinal conditions

  • Heart and circulatory conditions

  • Kidney and urinary tract conditions

  • Senility and cognitive dysfunctions

  • Cancer

  • Diabetes

  • Weakness

 

Often, the physical conditions are accompanied by changes in behavior. Harmonizing Touch harmonizes the life force energy in the body. It is a useful complementary approach helping senior cats to better cope with their ailments and improve their quality of life. Because of its gentle and non-invasive nature, Harmonizing Touch is well suited for older animals.

 

Some of the benefits Harmonizing Touch can provide are:

 

Physiological Benefits:

 

  • Support the body’s ability to heal and restore itself

  • Support the immune system to prevent or better cope with illness

  • Support circulatory and digestive functions

  • Support joint and muscle functions

 

Psychological Benefits:

 

  • Assist in reducing fear, anxiety and stress

  • Help build trust

  • Enhance body awareness and self-confidence

  • Promote acceptance of touch

  • Help deepen the bond between you and your animal friend (if you choose to learn some harmonizing holds).

 

Please note: Harmonizing Touch does not “treat” these and other health conditions. Instead, by harmonizing the life force energy in your cat’s body, healing can occur as a "side effect" of harmonious energy flow.  The body utilizes its own wisdom and healing capacities to do what it needs to do. Harmonizing Touch does not focus on specific “outcomes”. It simply harmonizes!

 

End of Life Support

 

In the last stages of their lives, the purpose of Harmonizing Touch is to nurture and comfort your beloved cats physically, mentally and emotionally, and to optimally support their quality of life until the very end. Harmonizing the life force energy may help ease physical pain and mental-emotional stress. It promotes comfort, harmony and a sense of peace.

physically, mentally and emotionally.

 

Some of the benefits of harmonizing the life force energy in the last stages of your cat’s life are:

  • Supporting the energy flow in your cat’s failing body

  • Promoting physical, mental and emotional comfort

  • Nurturing body, soul and spirit of your feline friend

  • Promoting allowing and acceptance of what is- both for your beloved cat and for you

 

Ultimately, your animal friend relies on your presence, love and compassion to feel safe and comfortable in these last stages of his or her life. Make sure that you take care of yourself and nurture your body, soul and spirit. Meditation, yoga, listening to relaxing music, taking some Flower Essences, and simply allowing yourself to feel whatever you feel are some of many ways to balance the emotions that you may be experiencing. The more you experience inner balance, the more your cat can relax. Our animals sense what we are feeling and often take on our emotions. Taking care of yourself is benefiting your animal friend, too!

Comfort & Care Visits

Caring for our senior cats can be challenging, especially if you are working full-time, and/or have children to care for or other family members to support. Whether your beloved cat needs to have his or her medications three or more times a day, frequently misses the litter box or vomits, or simply just wants to be held and comforted for longer periods of time- it requires that you make sufficient time in your daily schedule to care for your cat, meet his or her needs, provide sufficient physical and emotional comfort and keep his or her environment safe and clean.

 

Just like for a care giver for humans, it may take a toll on your energy level and overall well-being. Because cats are so sensitive to their surroundings- including your emotions- it is important that you care for yourself, and remain stress-free, calm, attentive and present in the company of your cat.

A Comfort & Care visit includes administering medications, cleaning up accidents, washing, grooming such as brushing and combing, and- of course, lots of comforting and TLC!

Letting an experienced and caring cat care professional take care of some of the many tasks involved in the care of your senior cat will enable you to spend more quality time with your beloved furry friend!
