Silvia Farfan studied and obtained her degree in Sophrologie in her native country of Colombia. After graduating she moved to France to complete her Master’s and PhD in Clinical Sophrologie. Dr. Farfan established her practice in Paris in 1991. For the next 20 years she treated patients, taught at the University of Paris and conducted well-being seminars in France and Italy. During that time she kept enriching her knowledge by studying a variety of holistic approaches focused on achieving a healthy balance of body, mind and emotions.

After 24 years her journey has brought her to expand her practice by learning Reiki techniques from a well-known Reiki Master in San Diego, California. Reiki is a holistic system designed to channel healing energy that is used for physical, mental, emotional and spiritual healing. The principle of Reiki is harmony and balance. Dr. Farfan continued her studies with more specific training on Reiki for animals at the Animal Reiki Source in Santa Rosa, California. Currently Dr. Farfan is working with dogs throughout Valley Center, Escondido, and San Diego. She treats her clients in a series of 4 to 10 sessions of 30 to 60 minutes each according to the specific needs of the animal.

The purpose of applying Reiki is to create a healing space where a person or animal can enhance the healing process at a physical, mental, or emotional level. Her ultimate goal is to improve quality of life by freeing the patient from pain, anxieties, and emotional imbalances. Feel free to visit her website at
