Felicia Onofrietti

Background:  I am a Massage Therapist and Reiki Master currently licensed by the State of New York for over 30 years - practicing out of my downtown NY apartment. I am also caretaker to two bossy but sweet companions; a 2-year-old Havanese named Gus, who loves people, and Emily, a feisty miniature parrotlet.

A little about Reiki:  Reiki is non-invasive, hands-on natural healing using the universal life force. The term comes from the Japanese words "rei" meaning universal and "ki" meaning vital life force energy that flows through all living things. Reiki, an abundant, gentle spiritual energy is not tied to any specific religion or nationality.

Whiskers Holistic Petcare 

Founded in 1988, our mission is to bring the benefits of holistic wellness concepts to the universe of companion animals through the education of pet care-givers, and to foster the research, identification and introduction of products and methods to further that aim.

At Whiskers, we operate on four basic principles:

The health and well being of your companion animal, and of all animals in general is our primary concern.

How that companion animal lived and ate in the wild is our model.

Nature is the only perfect system… and the best healer.

Your convenience and cost are major concerns because if it costs too much or is not convenient, you won’t do it.

Whether you are well-versed in the principles of holistic health care or new to the concept, one thing is sure, what we offer in the way of knowledge, products and methods works. We have thousands of success stories to back that up. In today’s world of hype, hysteria and general rip-off atmosphere, we invite you to test our beliefs and methods for your pet’s sake. The worst that can happen is that nothing happens. The best is that you will actively participate in maximizing the health and well being of those who love you without reservation, without the use of toxic, debilitating substances or invasive procedures.
