    Susan Hamilton utilizes Animal Communication and Energy Healing using Healing Touch for animals among other techniques such as - Animal Communication, Healing Touch for Animals, Nutritional consulting, Accupressure, Kinesiology, Scalar Wave and Reiki.
    Susan has over 40 years experience in dealing with animals from German Shepherds to Great Danes and Thoroughbreds to Quarter Horses. She has always had an “intuitive” feel for her animals and often seemed to just “know” things about them. Susan belonged to the Gold Creek Cavalry where she and her horse participated in drills, parades camp outs and trail rides. She later showed horses on the “A” Hunter/Jumper circuit in the Adult Amateur and Amateur Owner divisions.. Riding with such luminaries as Brad Laird and John Bauman. She has also successfully shown German Shepherd dogs in the confirmation show ring.
    She began this particular journey when she lost her mare to laminitis.a very painful disease of the hoof. Another of her horses was misdiagnosed with Insulin Resistance much like diabetes in humans Over the next few years and many unproductive vet bills, it was discovered that he did not have this disease at all. Having him on a good nutritious diet, lots of turnout, proper exercise, body and energy work were the keys to keeping him healthy and happy. Susan was drawn to learning much more about nutrition both for animals and people.
    Throughout her life, Susan has never been without an animal of some sort. At one point she owned 12 horses. Working in the painting and construction industry was the means of supporting all her animals. Susan is finally realizing her lifelong dream of being able to work directly with animals in a wonderful and unique way.
