products used in nursing homes. It’s worth it. She’s completely changed my lifestyle regard- ing how many toxins we’re exposed to daily.”


Emotional Relief Tracy Krulik, a certified canine separation anxiety trainer in northern Virginia and the Washington, D.C. area, is a graduate of Jean Donaldson’s Academy for Dog Trainers. “Us- ing videoconferencing, I can watch my cli- ent’s dogs at home, see when panic starts and create daily training plans to keep them safely calm.” Feldenkrais practitioner


and author of Grow Young with Your Dog: Learn How You and Your Ca- nine Companion Can Feel Better at Any Age! Mary Debono, of Encinitas, Cal- ifornia, sees a variety of pets.


“I invited an Arabian named Easy to be the demo horse during a class I taught,” she recalls. “Sore all over, he couldn’t liſt his feet high enough to step over a pole lying on the ground.” Easy showed dramatic improvement through Feldenkrais, which focuses on improved function, rebooting the body by interrupt- ing the cycle of pain and tension, so that the patient realizes change is possible. Debono also treated


a rabbit that didn’t like to be touched. “I used the eraser end of a pencil through an opening in his crate. Non-habitual touch gets the attention of the nervous system; areas of tension are sore, so gentle liſts provide relief.” Without pain, movement is easier and behavior improves.


Lesson Learned Sandy Johnson, former actress and author ofTe Pet Healer Project andMiracle Dogs: Adventures on Wheels, in Los Angeles, was in recovery from Stage 4 kidney cancer when she adopted Charley, a Brussels Griffon. “Her singlemindedness taught me my greatest lesson about the body’s ability to heal,” she says. Animals show less concern about


blindness, a bum knee or even the need for a wheelchair than humans do. People that live with special needs animals are quick to say the benefits far outweigh the cost. When we’re open to the possibilities, such pets offer lessons in living life to the fullest. Connect with freelance writer Sandra Murphy
