I received my certification in Holistic Animal Care through the New England School of Acupuncture in Boston. What began as an interest in helping my own dogs, especially one with severe allergies, has grown to include other dogs.
Regularly, I treat dogs with acupuncture and massage. Occasionally, I have worked with horses and cats, most of my work is with dogs.
Dogs respond quickly to acupuncture so their treatments are much shorter in length than your treatment. I have worked with Lyme disease, arthritis, allergies, anxiety & fears, cancer, nerve impingement, injuries, and immune system support.
I prefer to teach people to do massage on their own dogs in order to better equip them with a tool to relax, heal, and detect changes that require veterinary care. In 2007, I co-authored and published ‘A Dog Lover’s Guide to Canine Massage’ as a guide for practice at home. In 2010, I recorded ‘Giving Back: A Guided Canine Massage’ to help lead you in doing massage for your dog.
Each year I teach Canine Massage at Camp Unleashed on Labor Day and/or Memorial Day. Camp Unleashed is a three day program for people and their dogs that is offered in Western Massachusetts at Becket Chimney Corners YMCA camp.
If you would like your dog to experience the healing benefits of acupuncture, call to schedule an appointment.
