Reiki: Reiki means “Universal Energy”. It uses light, non-invasive touch to channel universal
energy to a patient’s energy body. The purpose is to restore balance, eliminate blockages, replenish
deficits, support the immune system, rebuild the stores of energy, enhance flow and connection, and
foster healing and well-being.
Animal Healing Touch & Communication: Healing Touch is an energy-based treatment to align
and balance the energy fields. The focus is to re-activate the body/mind/spirit connection and to eliminate blockages
to self-healing. It is a chakra based treatment. To learn more, you may wish to visit www.animalhealingtouch.com.
Communication is based on both intuition (third eye chakra) and heart chakra to heart chakra communication as taught by
Carol Gurney (www.animaltalk.com). Dr. Buese receives images, impressions, thoughts, and sensations from animals with
whom she works. These help their human companions understand their animals’ behaviors, moods, and body/mind issues.
Dr. Buese is glad to work in conjunction with veterinarians and animal behaviorists, and does both in-person and distance
healing touch and communication. She welcomes all species.
Ericksonian Hypnotherapy: Dr. Buese is an ASCH Approved Consultant. She specializes in Ericksonian
Hypnotherapy which respects the patient’s inner capacity for self-healing, and to do so both consciously and unconsciously.
Ericksonian hypnosis plays with the language, metaphor, stories, and imagery at conscious and unconscious levels, always
with the patient in control. Dr. Buese finds this kind of hypnosis particularly useful for body/mind issues, illness, well-being,
chronic or acute conditions, etc. Hypnosis is a learned skill and Dr. Buese is a skilled teacher.
