Tonya's first exposure to energy work came as a dog groomer when she quickly learned that being a good dog groomer entailed not only giving a good haircut, but being mindful of her energy and each individual dog's needs during the groom.
Tonya would later find herself guided to another path of energetic teachings through Amrit Yoga Institute. A year later, she would then complete Reiki training Level I, II and Master level training at the Art of Living Retreat Center in Boone, NC.
Tonya currently invests her time practicing Reiki at Pet Helpers, Charleston, SC and works with local dog trainers and their clients. But Tonya's work doesn't stop there. She will help you, as the owner of the animal, understand and appreciate what energy you put out into the world and how your animal responds to that energy.
Don't have an animal? That's Ok. Tonya provides Reiki and energetic counseling for those looking to remove blocks that are keeping them from moving forward. Her practice is a combination of her experience, training, coupled with and influenced by many teachers, some of which are listed on her Interesting Reads page.
