    Would Highly Recommend

    Posted by Sophie Elena on 24th Mar 2005

    I've been involved with hands-on and distant/absent healing, first with horses, then humans and other animals, for over 24 years, and I happily recommend this book, whether you are new to healing or an experienced practitioner. One of the lovely features of this book is the case studies, detailing Margrit's healing successes with many different animals. These case studies are easily found, interspersed throughout the book, as they are typed within a grey font box, and they therefore easily stand out. Once I had come across the first case study, I began searching through the book and read all the other case studies before any of the other information in the book. This may also be a good approach to the book for someone who is new to healing, or perhaps feeling sceptical about the subject area. The book contains a great deal of useful information for someone wishing to first learn, or further develop, their healing abilities, including meditation techniques to aid you in developing your empathy towards animals and in order to gain a greater insight into how they perhaps experience the human-ruled world they live in. Chapters cover Margrit's own healing experiences, what healing is about and why animals (and humans) might benefit from healing, what conditions healing can be used for, chakras, crystals, how to communicate telepathically and through healing, pet astrology/healing energies, and an explanation of other holistic therapies such as acupuncture, animal physiotherapy, chiropractic, osteopathy and homeopathy. There is a list of useful addresses, sub-divided into sections on animal healing, other complementary practitioners, and animal welfare organisations. The book is not one that can be read in one-sitting, as there is lots of information to absorb, however, it is well-sectioned and can easily be used as a reference guide to dip into as and when required. Although I feel this is an excellent book, one point I would contend with the author concerns her experience with crystals and her resulting comments that crystals may be a useful adjunct to hands-on healing, but, in her opinion, are not as effective a healing tool if used on their own. As a qualified crystal therapist, my experience has shown me that the inherent energy within crystals produces remarkable results on any auric level, whether physical or subtle body, but crystal therapy can take time for the healing effect to manifest and for blockages to clear, whether these are of mind, body or soul. Margrit's comments that only one or two crystals should be used is contrary to the practise of qualified crystal therapists, and there are reputable books, such as those by Simon Lilly, which fully explain the use of crystals and multi-crystal healing layouts. I would direct any reader of Margrit's book to other crystal therapy books if they are inexperienced in the use of crystals and wish to learn more. Margrit does include a brief description of some healing properties of some crystals in her book, but I found this to be incomplete and not the most useful information for someone wishing to use crystals with animals. I would suggest 'Crystal Healing for Animals' by Martin J. Scott and Gael Mariani as good reading matter on this subject.

    Truly Inspirational

    Posted by Miss Terry on 6th Dec 2004

    Margrit Coates' Hands-on Healing for Pets is truly inspirational. By giving them our unconditional love and by listening to our intuition, we can have a more meaningful relationship with our beloved pets. Compassionate and caring, sad and happy, Margrit's book taught me that we can ALL make a positive difference to the lives of the pets who share our homes. In short, Margrit's book brings a message of hope for the future of us all. Thank you Margrit.
