Di supports all animal species, and people with Bodytalk


email: di@dogsandus.nz

Di Scurr, Tauranga, New Zealand: my clients are WORLDWIDE

Having shared most of my life with animal companions, their happiness, comfort, welfare and wellness is as important to me as caring for one’s child. These qualities together with the elimination of any suffering are my driving force as primarily a BodyTalk for Animals practitioner.

Bodytalk and particularly its foundational theories on how and why it works, fitted harmoniously with my life-long years of learning about and using holistic integrative therapies. I am so excited about this modality!  I would love to be able to help you get great results with your animal friend, or even yourself!  Please don’t hesitate to email me with any questions you may have or to make an appointment. Thank you. Di

Equine Unwind - Integrated Equine Bodywork

Victoria Scott, Levin, New Zealand
phone: 0272880055
I am a certified Equine Bodywork practitioner. Who is focused and passionate about helping horses feel the best they can in their bodies.
We all want a happy horse who can utilise all of their body without restriction and soreness.
I use effective interactive methods, which enables the release of physical and emotional tension within the horse’s body.
Specialising in performance horses, I work with racehorses, showjumpers, dressage horses, endurance horses and welcome any horses who may not be performing at their best.
Many issues can include: horses not tracking up, bucking, rearing, turning issues, dragging legs, girthiness, or struggling with leads.
My aim is to optimise your horse’s performance.
I am certified in the Masterson Method©. I am a qualified energy healer with The Sacred Christed Energy Ray (The powerful pure Christ Consciousness vibration). Faye Rogers Academy©.
I have many useful tools in balancing horses energies, grounding them and removing emotions which hinder their performance.
I have completed all training in the Emotion Code (Removal of trapped emotions). I am currently learning other modalities and will incorporate these into my practices early next year.
I look forward to meeting you and your horses and making a difference in both of your lives.

Cat Mamas - Helping Sick Cats & Their People Feel Better

A holistic course to help you & your sick cat


What Your Sick Cat Needs More Than Anything

A sick cat has plenty of special needs – from good vet care, to the right treatments.

But your sick cat needs one thing more than anything else…


When you’re a Cat Mama, your furry little one depends on you for everything.And taking care of a sick cat is hard, lonely work! The truth is:

  • You feel sick with worry
  • No-one understands why you’re so upset, and
  • You’re just so tired!

Burnout is not an option. Somehow, you must carry on.

A good support network helps. But your family and friends don’t quite get what you’re going through. They wonder if maybe you need to talk to someone.

Well, you can talk to me Liz. I’m a Cat Mama too, and I get it. When my little Moofy was sick, I’d often wake up in the night to check on her. Sometimes I felt so helpless that I’d secretly cry in the shower.

If you need someone to hold your hand through this process, I’ll do everything I can to help you.
