What certification did you earn through Angel's Animals? Canine Myo-manipulative Functional Therapy
When did you decide that you wanted to work with animals? In 2019, I decided to work with dogs because of a past vocal cord injury that could not be fixed after 5 surgeries. I always had a love for animals all through life, but not until my 1st rescue in 2018 of a senior blind poodle, did I realize I wanted to help canines in a therapeutic way.
What animals do you currently own? I have a standard Dachshund, Tucker, a Malteagle, Rudolph, a blind Poodle, Marlee, and a Collie/Siberian Husky rescue named Sophie.
What makes your animal bodywork practice stand out? Healing Paws Canine Massage Therapy is unique to Eastern NC because I am the only one and I am a mobile company so I make house calls.
What message would you like to share with potential clients? Massage works!!! Not only on a physical level, but also mental. Animal bodywork has its place in the realm of holistic approach to physical and mental ailments.
What message would you like to share with others who are thinking about pursuing a career in animal bodywork? I believe that if you want to be relevant in the animal world and have the intent to help animals in a very important and life changing way for them..... animal bodywork could be your answer. I do not at anytime regret my career choice at all.
