Thanks to everyone who spoke out there was overwhelming opposition to the Veterinary Medical Board's new proposed definition of Animal Rehabilitation!

While this doesn't mean the Board can't still create stricter regulations for what they consider "rehabilitation' (which includes massage) it gives them less grounds for doing so. Stay tuned for updates!

Thank you for looking into massage for your pet. I believe massage is one of the most effective, non-invasive, and easily accessible health tools you can offer your pet, and yourself of course!

From 1993 to 2005 I worked with people in different areas of health care, specializing in corrective bodywork. In 2005 I realized that animals, particularly dogs, could benefit from what I'd learned about how bodies do what they do; including how they stay healthy, age well, and get hurt and heal.

Since then I've been working with pets of all sorts, in all stages of life. Helping them maintain or regain their ability to move the way they were meant to is the goal of massage, and I'd love the opportunity to include your loved one as one of the countless animals that have been helped by massage.

Hope to be seeing you soon!
