Certifications through Angel's Animals?I have finished both my Equine Massage & Kinesiology certifications. as well as the Hesta band Advanced Kinesiology course. I am just wrapping up my ANMR course for both Equine and Canine. Also working on my Cranial sacral course.
When did you decide that you wanted to work with animals? I have always had a love for animals for as long as I can remember. I wanted to be a Vet Tech and received a scholarship in high school to pursue that dream. After a year of being a vet Tech, I decided it was not for me.
What animals do you currently own? We currently own 6 Pembroke Welsh corgis, 2 border collies, 8 quarter horses, 1 miniature horse, 3 cats, a flock of show sheep, herd of cattle, chickens, 1 Watusi bottle calf & a fish tank.
What makes your animal bodywork practice stand out? I have really taken to the meridian and acupressure work on horses. They respond so well to these methods when paired with massage. I have had great success with my body work and I feel that it makes my practice unique.
What message would you like to share with potential clients? A message I have for potential clients is: You have to find the core root as to why the horse is responding to something the way they are, wither that's physical or emotional. Horses respond to trauma in different ways and not one particular method works for every horse. I try to treat the horse or dog as a whole, not just the symptom.
What message would you like to share with others who are thinking about pursuing a career in animal health? If you are pondering a career in animal health care, go for it, inch by inch its never to late to start. By helping the animal heal himself, you are then helping the animal heal his person. It's been proven to me over and over in this practice.
