Our courses were the first online courses of its kind and paved the way for other online educational programs. We have thousands of students and practitioners in over 30 countries. The majority of our certified practitioners decide to enroll in additional courses with us for their continuing education because they are very satisfied with the course layout and support they receive along the way. Continuing Education (CE) credits are offered through The National Certification Board of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork, The International Veterinary Chiropractic Association, the International Association of Animal Massage and Bodywork/Association of Canine Water Therapy and other animal massage organizations.

Dr. Barbara has been passionate about animals her entire life and has spent the majority of her life studying animals (both in the classroom and in the field). She developed her first animal bodywork seminar in 2009. Since that time, her seminars have grown both in number and popularity and she has fine tuned her seminars and techniques to optimize the learning experience. Dr. Barbara was one of the first practitioners to start utilizing kinesiology tape on animals and she was so impressed with the results that she decided to develop an entire seminar dedicated to the taping applications she developed. Her background in both the clinical and research animal health care world as well her experience as a human chiropractor give her a unique perspective on animal bodywork, which is evident in her courses.
Dr. Barbara has publications in the Journal of Veterinary Science and Microbiology and has presented her research at the Conference of Researchers in Animal Disease (CRAWD) and the International Equine Conference of Laminitis and Diseases of the Hoof.
