In addition to seeing private clients, Polly teaches Animal Communication and Reiki classes throughout the country. She also teaches for Bastyr University and The Northwest School of Animal Massage. Polly also has the pleasure to work with MercyVet Veterinary Hospital in surgical recovery providing energy work to their animal clients as they awaken from anesthesia. She also works with Erica Anderson (DVM) at Jet City Animal Clinic, in Seattle, WA. She sits on the board of the National Board of Certification for Animal Acupressure & Massage.
Polly’s earliest therapeutic practice was counseling families, where she focused her work on children living with cancer. Bringing this knowledge and training from her human counseling practice into her current healing work, Polly assists animals and their people with understanding and resolving the emotional and energetic components of their behavioral and health issues. Tonglen Healing Arts for Animals is based in Issaquah, Washington, where Polly lives with her her children, dogs, cats, parrot, pond of goldfish, and the occasional visiting goat.
