Suzanne Walski, doctor of veterinary medicine and owner of Meadowbrook Animal Healing, and Lyn Hicks, who co-created The Room at Meadowbrook with Walski, will host a Vibrant Living Festival for people and their companion pets at The Room at Meadowbrook, in Ottsville, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., on October 8, to celebrate the many ways healthy living can be experienced by people and their furry friends. Leashed, well-behaved dogs are invited to attend with their human companions.
The gathering will bring together many different healing and expressive art practitioners in one space. Classes and workshops will be offered free throughout the day, and healing services will be available for a fee. Offerings include yoga, qigong, women’s health, reflexology and aurasoma with jin shin jyutsu. Animal lectures and demonstrations will include chiropractic, acupuncture, Bach Flower Remedy and nutrition. Healthy snacks, made by a local nutritionist, will be available for purchase. The event will culminate in a sound healing experience. “This is an event where people can learn to take better care of their own health, and also learn how many of the same healing practices can be applied to their pets,” states Walski.
Walski has been serving the Pennsylvania community since 1987. She worked at several animal hospitals before opening Meadowbrook Animal Hospital. In 2000, she added chiropractic care, and in 2005, she became a practitioner of traditional Chinese veterinary medicine acupuncture. As her services evolved, so did the hospital, becoming Meadowbrook Animal Healing. Walski provides holistic healing for pets, including animal reiki, acupuncture, chiropractic, laser therapy, Bach Flower Remedy and individualized nutrition consultations.
