Name: Jeremy Gilliam, Quarter Circle TD Equine Massage & Therapy
Practice Location: throughout the state of Montana
What certification did you earn through Angel's Animals? I earned 2 certificates for Equine Myo-Manipulative Functional Therapist and Equine Kinesiology Tape Practitioner.
When did you decide that you wanted to work with animals? About 2 years ago I was watching a Equine Massage Therapist work on my wife's horse and I thought I could do this and why do I need to pay someone to do it for my wife. So I started to look into this and found out that I could learn Equine Massage and help others too. I have enjoyed the trip in Equine Massage education.
What animal influenced you the most growing up? Growing up I had a black Lab and he was my best friend when I was a toddler. Ever since I have enjoyed all animals and know horses help me a lot with PTSD.
What animals do you currently own? We currently own 7 gaming horse, 2 dogs and 2 cats.
What makes your animal bodywork practice stand out? What makes my bodywork practice stand out is that I am very patient with the animals and treat them like one of my own animals. I also listen to the owners and never tell them they were wrong. I also have taken additional course in Laser Light Therapy and purchased a class 3 laser. In addition, I have also purchased a traveling EquiVibe Plate for therapy on horses. I have also been working with a Equine Vet clinic and also am one of the only few in Montana with Equine Massage Therapy Insurance.
What message would you like to share with potential clients? I will listen to every client and treat each horse with respect as if it was my own. I have over 10 years of experiences competing on horses and understand what it takes for them to compete healthy. Every horse should have time to relax and be pampered.
What message would you like to share with others who are thinking about pursuing a career in animal bodywork? I say if you are thinking of pursing a career in animal bodywork do it. It is the most satisfying reward to complete the certifications and to see the results you provide to the animals. I waited 6 months and I should not have. Holistic Animal Studies by Angel's Animal LLC. had lots of great information and was very educational. I would recommend this courses to anyone that was interested in animal bodyworks.
