Sharing Hands-On Integrative Medicine with animals is a very rewarding experience, a way to connect with your animals and support their healing needs.
Dow Integrative Animal Health is my intuitive approach to wellness work with animals.
I draw upon my cumulative experience of the many different healing modalities that I have learned and apply this knowledge-base to what the animal needs and is asking for. I center myself and use slow Integral Breathwork tools before I begin, and while I am offering treatments with your animal. I proceed slowly, sensing your animal’s response throughout the session. I use Therapeutic Touch to get a sense of any areas of constriction or blockages in your animal’s body as an assessment, as well as a vehicle for change and diffusing pain in the body.
I also use Jin Shin Jyutsu (JSJ), an ancient hands-on healing Art for the body, mind and spirit. Its original use was with humans and is used in hospital settings, and has since been adapted to be used with animals. I will often sing while working with your animal, especially if they are blind or elderly.
Dow Integrative Animal Health is a deeply rewarding experience.
Disharmonies and health conditions addressed include:
- lessening healing time after injury or surgery
- digestive and elimination concerns
- skeletal and muscular issues
- circulatory problems
- arthritis, rheumatism and other age related imbalances
- emotional issues
My work with animals has been diverse.
I have given treatments to dogs with tumors, cats with kidney “projects”, goats with respiratory infections, horses with skin allergies and hoof abscesses, animals mourning the loss of their loved one, and arthritic sheep… to name a few. I have experienced tumors disappearing and bone spurs disintegrating through this integrative hands-on therapeutic practice.The effects of this healing modality are cumulative, and frequent applications of these techniques (once a day for ten minutes) will greatly enhance your animal companion’s healing process. It is a great aid for healing alone, or in conjunction with traditional “Western” veterinary care.
Working with an animal’s health and healing is my passion.
I began to practice with animals when my beloved yellow lab, Emerson, had a tumor on his neck that was “concerning”. I treated the tumor project by daily offering him Therapeutic Touch and Jin Shin Jyutsu treatments as part of our “going to bed” routine. After three weeks, the tumor was gone. This was just the beginning of my work/play with animals. I volunteered at the Catskill Animal Sanctuary and the Woodstock Farm Sanctuary for a number of years offering treatments to horses, donkeys, goats, sheep, pigs, turkeys and chickens. The medical “projects” ranged from arthritis, progressive blindness, infections, muscle strain, emotional balance, skeletal and spine alignment, stress, elimination, pain management, accumulations, and more.
Schedule a Session
Most animals settle down very quickly and relax fully, receiving the treatment. Other animals can be surprised by what they feel, and may even move away. In this case, we allow them the freedom to move, and offer the treatment again at another time.
During in person sessions when the animal is present, whether it is in their home or at an animal sanctuary, I will give them a treatment for their “project/s”, and then teach you, the caregiver, how to apply your hands to support their healing. We will video record the session for you to review the protocol afterwards to continue with the treatment(s) on your own.

My Experience of Giving Dow Integrative Animal Health
Callie, a dog
I was called to a friend’s house whose dog had not been eating, except for baby food spoon-fed by the owner. She had kidney failure and had to be given fluids through an IV. Her prognosis was not good. I had thought I was coming to her house to talk with the owner about how to be supportive with an animal during euthanasia. Instead, I gave her a treatment for her stomach, followed by one for kidneys. Ten minutes later, the dog got up from her bed, walked to the kitchen and barked. She wanted food. Her owner was ‘beside herself’ racing around the kitchen to get her something to eat. The dog ate, was stronger, and continued to thrive with daily hands-on integrative medicine treatments by her owner, and continued care from her vet. She lived another 2 years, passing at age 17 years.
Mia, a cat
My own cat, Mia, was losing hair and weight at age 15 years. We brought her to the vet to find out that she had Stage 2 kidney failure. We started her on an herb medication, a diet for kidney “projects”, and daily (sometimes twice) Hands-On Integrative Medicine for harmonizing the kidney function energy in the body. She began to gain weight and her hair returned glossy and soft. She is still with us, thriving well, and receiving Hands-On Integrative Medicine treatments every once in a while. She is 17 years old.
It was a wonderful evening at the Ronald McDonald House and such a pleasure to meet you! You have such a lovely presence filled with warmth and passion in the beautiful work that you do! Thank you so much for sharing your time with the RMDH therapy dogs and their owners!
Julianne worked several times on my cat who was terminally ill with cancer. Even though the treatments did not heal her, I could tell she benefited from them and it helped her transition more peacefully. She was clearly relaxed, and enjoyed the treatment. I highly recommend Jin Shin Jyutsu treatments with Julianne Dow.
