Kim Tallcouch, RMT
Kim holds B.A. degrees in Cultural Anthropology and Psychology. She is a Certified Reiki Master Teacher and a Shamanic healing practitioner. As an anthropologist, Kim has traveled all over the world studying the ancient ways and wisdom of other cultures and visiting sacred sites, both natural and those created by man. She has studied at the Great Pyramids of Egypt, Stonehenge, Machu Picchu, and the ancient sites of Mexico; Teotihuacan and Chichen Itza.
She has participated in multiple shamanic trainings and initiations with shaman from different cultural backgrounds and disciplines. Her core shamanic training and medicine work is the Andean/South American Medicine healing of the ancient Incans and their modern day descendants, the Q'ero of Peru. From the teachings of the Q'ero, she has received and can pass the following ancient Peruvian Healing Rites: Munay Ki, Wilkamayu and Pleiadian Star.
With respect to her Reiki practice, her enthusiasm and conviction for Reiki’s positive healing effects and its ability to promote physical, emotional and spiritual well-being is passed on to her clients in each and every session. Kim's Reiki sessions are intuitive and she shares the information and messages she receives with the Reiki client.
Kim has found Reiki to be especially effective with animals in reducing anxiety and stress, in addition to maintaining overall health and wellness. She also offers training and certification in Animal Reiki.
Kim's life long love for and respect of animals has blended with her spiritual understanding, education and training. As a result, she can connect intuitively and spiritually with animals that are both alive and crossed over.
When not spending time with her own pets, Kim is a volunteer at H.O.R.S.E. of CT, an equine rescue facility, a docent at the CT's Beardsley Zoo, a Master Wildlife Conservationist with the state of CT DEEP and a seasonal volunteer at the Shepaug Dam Eagle Observation site.
