Alison McKinnon is a SARA Teacher who studied animal Reiki with Kathleen Prasad. Alison had practiced Reiki before studying with Kathleen but found the results with Kathleen’s techniques were instant. She is very proud to be able to pass those techniques on to her students. Alison has many years experience in the field of complementary healthcare and natural therapy including aromatherapy. Her experiences working with essential oils led her to explore other subtle healing systems and energy work including Reiki. Her own animal family always benefited from her therapies, but in 2002, she decided to begin offering therapies for animals on a wider scale and set up a business to offer holistic healing to pets which led her to become involved with The Tree of Life for Animals (Tolfa) in India several years ago. Alison recently taught the Tolfa staff and volunteers Animal Reiki and plans to run classes at Tolfa twice a year. SARA is very proud to have Tolfa as an official SARA shelter. Our first in India thanks to Alison! Alison lives in College Milto, East Kilbride, Scotland where she offers in person and distant Animal Reiki.
