Jacquie Shankster is a Reiki Practitioner and Teacher based in the market town of Machynlleth at the base of Snowdonia National Park Mid Wales; she offers Reiki for all types of animals and their caregivers, and also offers workshops in Animal Reiki.
Jacquie was brought up in a family of Zoologists, spending her formative years in zoos and wildlife parks, where she learnt at a very young age how to connect with animals, intuitively understanding their needs by simply watching and listening to their subtle signs and messages. “At the time I didn’t understand energy healing, I just called it ‘giving love”. Jacquie is passionate that all living beings, human and animal are treated with empathy, deep respect and love, and is also conscious that this beautiful planet is shared by us all and that our ultimate happiness can only come from living harmoniously together.
Jacquie was introduced to Reiki and Animal Reiki over 10 years ago and in 2012 trained with Kathleen completing the Animal Reiki III Teacher level; in 2013 she completed Shinpiden with Frans Stiene of the International House of Reiki.
