BodyTalk Practitioner for Animals

PaRama BodyTalk Practitioner

Karen has been in the animal industry since 2010. She started off assisting one of Singapore’s top surgeons as a senior veterinary nurse. She has assisted in major surgeries both overseas and in Singapore, handling and nursing critically ill patients in the hospital. This experience gave her many opportunities to explore another aspect of the animal kingdom—namely, non-verbal communication, to connect to their healing abilities and hear their voices from within. She performs BodyTalk and Animal Communication sessions, which has reinforced to her the importance of physical and spiritual communication between pets and their guardians for the past 7 years.

After learning animal communication, Karen furthered her studies in canine rehabilitation and hydrotherapy. She has been providing physical therapy for dogs, cats and rabbits since 2016 in her position as Chief Rehabilitation Therapist for animals, and as one of the pioneer therapists in Singapore. She is now the Co-Founder and Director, as well as Principal Animal Rehabilitation Practitioner of Gaia Wholistic Animal Wellness Singapore. She strongly advocates the education of integrative healing, where the pet’s emotional and mental state, as well as physical well-being have to come hand in hand for a complete and well balanced healing journey, even as their guardians play a huge role in supporting the healing process. Most importantly, a low-stress, healthy environment must be managed for the animals with the right guidance. She believes all animals deserve to receive physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of healing; so, she incorporates her skills to facilitate their route to recovery. She is currently also working at Animal Wellness Centre once a week to assist Dr Jean Paul Ly as a senior vet nurse/surgical nurse to continue her journey of healing animals.
