Tina ReadAnimal Reiki Practitioner
Growing up Tina was blessed to share her life with many beautiful animal souls; cats, dogs, horses, mice, hamsters, fish, rabbits and horses. Tina and her brother were Star Wars fans at an early age and her love of Star Wars deepened in later years when many a happy Sunday afternoons were spent watching the films with friends. Her second date with her husband was a trip to the Cinema to watch Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith!
In 2006 Tina’s mother passed away after being diagnosed with advanced cancer three months earlier, this was a turning point in her life and eventually from this unbearable loss came many gifts and blessings, which her mother had actually predicted towards the end of her own life.
Tina has qualified in Reiki for Cancer Care and worked and volunteered with clients with cancer, which included the day centre at a local hospice. She was guided to specialise in working with animals 8 years ago and in addition to Reiki for Animals she has a qualification in Pet Bereavement Counselling.
Animals are often our greatest teachers and can act as our mirrors.
Tina believes that the animal and human bond can be deepened through meditation and being truly present with our animals while harnessing the force within us and surrounding us all. As we expand the light within this has a ripple effect for us all.
Tina has had a number of animal related magazine articles published and currently writes a column in Catworld Magazine about life at Feline Care Cat Rescue, where she volunteers Reiki to the feline residents.
She is also the Pets in Heaven expert on Theresa Cheung’s popular Author Facebook page.
Tina also volunteers Reiki for UK German Shepherd Rescue Angels.
