Hello friends! Welcome to Regarding Animals.

I am a qualified Trust Technique® Practitioner and Usui Reiki Master.

How can I help?

How did one ordinary person become a practitioner.


I am a qualified Usui Reiki Master Practitioner




Masako worked with my dogs and I using the Trust Technique. She was able to calm them and then teach me to calm them. After working with her, my 3 rescues became calm enough to attend to their training and become less territorial. The combination of the Trust technique and training truly helped my 3 rescues get along and become well behaved. I highly recommend Masako to work with high energy dogs. With her help I was able to keep my dog family together and help them attend better to their training! I can't thank her enough!

Masako was extremely knowledgeable and helpful while working with my two Labs. We continue to practice what she has taught us with great success. She is highly recommended!

Ms Masako is excellent, very knowledgeable and patient. We highly recommend her.

Definitely helped calm my dog down by showing how much they feed off my energy. Highly recommend.

We needed some guidance in dealing with some behavioral issues with our two cats. Masako introduced us to the Trust Technique, which allows us to channel down the stress/anxiety in the environment so that the animal, in turn, can relax. We weren’t at all familiar with this technique until having met Masako, but it’s a fairly easy and effective process once practiced, and highly beneficial to everyone involved. We are very grateful for her expertise!

Masako has wonderful calm energy, which helps the human calm down, and therefore the dogs. She is very knowledgeable in the Trust Technique, very patient, sweet and is a true pleasure to work with her. Highly recommend scheduling a consultation with her. Namaste

Very kind and my shy dog took immediately to her. I will be using the techniques she showed me with the dog and for myself!

I have been taking the Trust Technique video course for the last few weeks and it has been going well, but I felt like I wanted to touch base with someone experienced in this technique as my dog and I go through this journey. I am so glad I connected with Masako via Skype! After speaking with her, I felt more confident and comforted. Masako is very knowledgeable in the Trust Technique and a pleasure to work with. I also appreciated her calmness and her warm friendly manner. In addition, my dog and I recently enjoyed our first distant Reiki session with Masako. During the session I felt very relaxed, peaceful and a gentle warmth along with a wave of energy washing over me. From start to finish of our Reiki session my dog Emma was completely relaxed and peaceful, and being more sensitive to energy than people, I am sure she benefited from the session. Here is picture of Emma during Reiki session:) Thanks Masako!
