How anxiety affects the energies of the body in your dog

You are probably familiar with the usual symptoms of anxiety… barking, howling, unable to settle, soiling in the house etc.

But energetically, there will be chakras, acupoints and meridians out of balance, which means the energy can’t flow clearly around the body.


The crown chakra, situated on the top of the head, relates to mental health so can often become out of balance when there is anxiety. The third eye chakra, situated on a dog between their eyes, directly relates to anxiety.

As  both of the above chakras relate to the brain, it’s no surprise that they become out of balance when a dog is anxious. However, the solar plexus chakra, which is situated at the stomach relates to nervousness. I find a lot of dogs can hold anxiety in their stomach, and often need this chakra balancing.

Acupoints and Meridians

Below are a number of common points which I use a lot to help with anxiety. No doubt there are others, but I tend to use animal communication before the session to see which points the dog needs balancing, and these are the ones requested most frequently.

Stomach 36 (St36) is calming for the mind, and also helps with digestive issues which can be caused by anxiety.

Ba Hui is a point I use a lot for physical issues in the hind legs, joints and spine, but is also a good calming point.

Governing Vessel 20 (GV20) can clear the brain and calms the mind.

I often balance Heart 7 (Ht7) and Pericardium 7 (Pe7) together, as they are a great combination, and are situated near each other – one on the inside of the leg and one on the outside. They have a number of uses, one of which is relaxation.

Kidney 27 (Ki27) is really useful for rescue dogs, as not only does it ease anxiety, but also helps with past trauma.

So how can you reduce anxiety by re-balancing the energies?

I do holistic therapy sessions using reiki, acupressure and massage in the comfort of the dog’s own home to balance the chakras, and acupoints, and promote relaxation. Contact me for a no obligation free animal communication session to find the energy imbalances your dog has, and how they need balancing.

But if you don’t live near Nottingham, check out my resources page on my website, for ways you can help to balance the energies for a happier, healthier dog.  Or contact me for distance therapy sessions.
