When do you decide that you wanted to work with animals? I have always loved and had a connection with animals and would care for lost and injured animals. Horses were my passion and still are. As a child and teenager I wanted to become a veterinary specializing in horses and, sometimes, life gives us a redirect.
What animal influenced you the most growing up? My first cat who "talked" to me and my horse who taught me how to listen and feel his rhythm, his heart. I always rode bareback and one day we were in the arena warming up before our ride. He kept indicating he wanted to go over the small jumps so I thought, ok, why not. He taught me how to jump that day, to listen and feel his rhythm even more deeply, when to lift up, when and how to lean forward to support his rhythm and flow. It was a magical day and from then on I knew even more clearly how special that connection is.
What animals do you currently own? I have a wonderful cat, Molly, who had been a semi-feral ranch cat. She is an absolute delight and loves being an indoor house cat.
What makes your animal bodywork practice stand out? Bodies talk to me, they always have. I am also an intuitive massage therapist and certified Avesa Medical Intuitive. I look at the whole horse which includes environment, owner/rider relationship, the type of work the horse does as well as the emotional wellbeing of the horse. As I connect and work with the horse I help to relieve held trauma and then begin the unwinding process of physical issues. I work with the horse, at their pace and as they are ready as well as working with the owner to create a plan of between visit care to maximize the horse's recovery. It is amazing how much faster a horse can heal when their owner does the suggested follow through support.
What message would you like to share with potential clients? Find a bodywork practitioner that both you and your horse are comfortable with. If either of you are not comfortable it will not matter how good the practitioner is AND remember to take into account how quickly or not so quickly your horse takes to a new person. I love working with horses, this is my passion and heart song.
What message would you like to share with other who are thinking about pursuing a career in animal bodywork? GO FOR IT!!!
This work is so important and needed and yet, many horse owners do not understand its value. Allow yourself to find the people and clients that DO appreciate you and your work and let the others find their own way. There is more than enough work for everyone.

Certifications through Angel's Animals? I am an Equine Myo-manipulative Functional Therapist & Equine Kinesiology Tape Practitioner
When did you decide that you wanted to work with animals? I've spent most of my life surrounded by animals, so the idea has always been there. When I first started riding lessons, I knew that's when I wanted to work with horses in some aspect. It wasn't until I was in school for human massage therapy when I kept ditching class to go to the barn, that I realised I should change my type of clientele and actually pursue them!
What animal influenced you the most growing up? Definitely horses! I'm not sure where I would be today without them, they have been a major part of my life for a long time now.
What animals do you currently own? I just have my very wonderful horse Archie. He only has one eye, which has created several muscular & structural imbalances throughout his body, so he's been a BIG inspiration for my massage business.
What makes your animal bodywork practice stand out? I try to take a whole mind & body approach to my clients horses. I also have my diploma in equine science, so to me it's not just looking at the muscles and working through a problem area, it's also the behaviour, diet, physiology, etc I have to look at.
What message would you like to share with potential clients? One of the things I see far too often is people underestimating or overlooking the power of massage. Trust me I get it, at first I too was like, massaging horses?? Really, are you crazy? But it really should be part of the average working horses wellness plan. I've had a lot of clients book me with horses they claim to not have problem areas, but end up messaging me days later saying they have a completely different horse (in a good way)!
What message would you like to share with others who are thinking about pursuing a career in animal bodywork? If this is something you want to do, and you're willing to fight for it then absolutely go for it. I have loved every appointment and horse I have gotten to work with because of my business, but it is a lot of work. Just remember that you're starting your own business, and it can be rough but if you can put your all into it, it'll be a very rewarding career!

Certifications Through Angel's Animals: Equine Massage Course
When did you decide that you wanted to work with animals? I have always loved animals ever since I was a little kid! We had all kinds of animals from chickens to dogs to rabbits to guinea pigs to cats and so on! Growing up, I wanted to be a veterinarian but my career did not end up following that track. Instead, I found a way to give back and help animals feel their best through massage! I was involved in the local equine 4-H program growing up and did a presentation about equine massage, which I ended up presenting at the Eastern National 4-H Roundup! Since then, I have been extremely interested in equine massage and its endless benefits and decided to pursue my certification to make my aspirations become a reality.
What animal influenced you the most growing up? Horses for sure! I started taking lessons at the age of 6 which ignited a passion ever since! Horses are just incredibly patient, understanding, and they have so much to teach us regardless of breed, size, and performance. I would not be the rider or horsewoman I am today without the grace of my very first 4-H project horse Charlie.
What animals do you currently own? I still ride my senior 4-H project horse named Trace! He is a registered Paint Horse gelding and we do all around western events and some low level dressage (classical and western). I also have a guinea pig named Tobi and a rabbit named Juneau.
What makes your animal bodywork practice stand out? I have ridden in many programs and different disciplines ranging from 4-H, dressage, western all around events, saddleset, and collegiate hunt seat equitation in IHSA and AEL. Riding at such diverse levels, I appreciate all aspects of competition and equestrian pursuits from the retired school pony to the leisurely trail master to the high performing equine athlete. With my variety of employment experience from being a working student to working at a veterinary hospital in addition to my riding experience, I have gained a deep comprehension of what it takes to help a horse feel their best. I am extremely determined and passionate about improving the well being of all horses using equine massage, which drives my practice to be continuously learning and improving to provide top quality bodywork services.
What message would you like to share with potential clients? Equine massage therapy is beneficial to all equines no matter their competition level, discipline, age or breed! As the needs of a horse change throughout its life, so does the focus of bodywork. All horses are always using their muscles, joints, and body in so many different ways and equine massage therapy can help to reduce tension in any resulting stress areas. Please consider how equine massage can help your horse today! Feel free to browse our website extendequinemassage.com and connect with us to help your horse feel their best!
What message would you like to share with others who are thinking about pursuing a career in animal bodywork? Pursuing animal bodywork is so rewarding and very worthwhile! It truly pays off to see the results and improve the wellbeing of so many animals. I wish that I had worked toward my certification earlier in life! It is always a great feeling to see horses release their tension, let out a yawn or sign of release, and then show improved performance after the session!

When did you decide that you wanted to work with animals? As soon as I fell in love with horses as a kid, I knew I wanted to be involved with them. I switched from Hunter jumpers, to eventing, then to Barrels as I was struggling to find which area I really wanted to go pro in, and when I was confident enough with the speed of barrels, I decided that I wanted to shoot for world champion in the sport. I knew going pro would require lots of travel, so I figured if I was an equine therapist, I could not only use my therapies on my own horses to keep them sound on the road, but on others as well to maintain income flow while traveling! It was a win win situation, and I’m currently working on having my horses ready to hit the road so we can finally make that dream a reality!
What animal influenced you the most growing up? My horse Gator. She was a Florida Mustang I got as a young kid. She did everything I wanted growing up, and when I would switch disciplines, she’d be right there with me. I’d set jumps obviously too high for her abilities, or ask her to fly across pastures at mock 1 speed, but she’d never refuse anything I threw at her, and that’s what amazed me the most about her. We won championships in the English world against horses that obviously looked and were trained much better, but her heart always won in the end, and the judges and everyone else saw it. She was a very mothering horse and she gave me my first taste of freedom on horseback.
What animals do you currently own? I currently own 3 dogs, and 5 horses! My wallet hates me, lol
What makes your animal practice stand out? My versatility, and constant passion to learn more and add more to my business. I truly love giving a horse a voice to tell its owners what is wrong, and then helping that horse feel better so they can continue to live comfortably. The things we ask of our horses grow more and more strenuous, and we are breeding crazier and more talented horses every year, so the competition is getting extremely tough. Maintaining comfort and sanity in these horses is absolutely paramount, and I am proud to say that with my current program, I’ve had some of the most amazing success stories with horses that had little hope left.
What message would you like to share with potential clients? When searching for a practitioner for your horse, look for someone as passionate about them as you are! It is our job to make them feel better, and to give them a voice, so we must be in tune with them, and passionate about helping them. A true love for the horse is the most important tool a practitioner can carry.
What message would you like to share with others who are thinking about pursuing a career with animals? Life is too short to live for the weekends and dread every Monday. Do what you love, and love what you do, therefore you’ll never work a day in your life. It is HARD WORK and even three years into starting my business I’m still in the startup stages, but if you are passionate, you will succeed!

When did you decide that you wanted to work with animals? Haha well from the age of three I was obsessed with horses and was always saving baby bunnies and birds. Many of my earliest memories as a child are of family pets. The most vivid memory being of riding a rodeo roping mare owned by a friend and coworker of my father's when I was around age four. From then on I was hooked! I always knew I wanted to work with animals and had started my path toward veterinary studies during high school. However, while volunteering for my local lesson barn, I witnessed one of the most gut wrenching events in my time with horses. It had been an unusually hot summer day and at some point late that evening a yearling filly had cast herself against her stall wall. We had successfully gotten her to her feet only to realize the worst was not over. The filly had gone down hard with severe colic and her owner had no way of getting to the stable to comfort and assist her. The stable owner and I took shifts hand walking the distraught filly waiting for the emergency vet to arrive. Hours and Hours had passed and still no vet. It was late now and dark outside as we attempted to make her as comfortable as possible. I remember massaging her face and back; anything to keep her from throwing herself to the ground. Finally, around 11pm the vet arrived to examine her. Despite all our combined efforts the yearling filly was humanely euthanized early the next morning. The vet concluded that she had twisted intestines and the damage at that point would have been irreversible even with surgery. Large portions of her intestine had begun to die from lack of blood flow and she was in unimaginable pain. Her owner had arrived just in time to receive the news in person and had asked if there was any way it could have been prevented. The vet sighed and replied unequivocally, yes. This filly had lived the majority of her short life confined to a stall waiting hours between meals. She was fed a large amount of high starch/sugar feed with a comparatively small amount of hay. The only exercise she received was a half hour vacation to the indoor arena long enough to have her stall cleaned daily or an hour of lunging/groundwork courtesy of her owner. This unfortunate filly endured a perfect storm of conditions that all contributed to her colic episode that ultimately led to her untimely death. She was so young. The moment the vet explained how all of these conditions lead to this colic episode would stay with me forever. Her diet, environment, and lack of species appropriate care, and her owners lack of education is what killed this filly. Her colic was an end stage symptom of many underlying health problems. From that day on I poured myself into learning everything I could about equine health and wellness so that I could educate horse owners in an effort to empower them to make life changing and saving decisions for the animals they love.
What animal influenced you the most growing up? Definitely horses! Three in particular come to mind. A very sweet and sensitive Chincoteague Pony gelding who I rode during lessons around the age of twelve. He was always so particular about how he was ridden and how his tack was fitted. He taught me so much about reading horses and recognizing when they are in discomfort or pain. He is the first horse who sparked my interest in learning about body work and the importance of saddle fit. Second is my stock grade gelding who has changed tremendously over the years through nutrition and understanding of equine biomechanics. When we met poor Top was the definition of a hot mess. He was beautiful and full of potential but unfortunately his body was in constant pain from head to hoof. He struggled with many hoof and back problems, it was a wonder the horse could even stand let alone walk. While he has spent his life with me unridden he has proved himself a great teacher and has helped many learn the importance of good care and putting the horse's wellbeing above riding goals. The third is my Spotted Draft mare Rose. Over the years we've been together she has taught me so many valuable lessons but it wasn't until she was diagnosed with PPID that my knowledge of equine health and wellness was put to the test. It's been five years now since her initial diagnosis and at age 24 Rose is going strong being supported and managed for her disease through diet, herbs, environment, and bodywork. We often get comments from vets on how great she looks and how it's difficult to tell she even has PPID just by looking at her! I've even been told by her vet that she is a poster child for what holistic care can do. High praise coming from a typical allopathic vet!
What animals do you currently own? All of them haha! I have four horses, two seniors and two youngsters, three rescue dogs and two very spoiled barn cats.
What makes your animal practice stand out? While I have not officially started my career in animal bodywork, I like to think that what will make my practice stand out is my passion and dedication to and for the horse not just physically, but emotionally, mentally, and spiritually as well. As all animal lovers I think can agree, our animals are every bit as complex as we are and experience life on many plans much like we do. So for me it makes perfect sense to offer them support for whatever is off balance be it physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual in nature. I think one of the most beautiful aspects of Holistic Care is that as practitioners we have so many different arrows in our quiver with which to choose from and can approach a health issue from many different angles in an effort to bring the animal back into balance often in the most gentle way. I love being able to be hands on helping them feel their best so they can live happy and healthy!
What message would you like to share with potential clients? Our horses are often asked to give us their all and many do despite not feeling their best. Some will even continue to perform while in pain. Most don't realize they have a choice. Many are never offered one. As their caregivers it's up to us to be our horse's advocates and give them a voice. All animals benefit from proper nutrition and bodywork regardless of whether or not they are ridden, show or compete. They give us so much of themselves the very least we can do in return is offer them the best quality of life we can. It's my pleasure to offer holistic support for health and wellness to animals of all ages and stages!
What message would you like to share with others who are thinking about pursuing a career with animals? There's a lot to learn but it's absolutely worth it! There's no feeling quite like helping an animal release discomfort or pain with your own two hands or seeing the expression on their face when they realize you understand where it hurts. My favorite thing personally is a tie between witnessing the mental and emotional changes in horses who have lived with discomfort or pain, and seeing horses blossom with species appropriate nutrition. It never ceases to amaze me how seemingly small adjustments to the diet can change their life for the better and in some cases save it. Angel's Animals has made learning all these valuable therapy methods easy, fun, and most importantly for me accessible!

this beautiful state for over two decades.
Certifications Through Angel's Animals? I received two certifications in Canine Myo-manipulative Functional Therapy (CMFT) and Animal Cold Laser Therapy (ACLT) from Angel’s Animals. I owned a business that makes homemade treats for the dogs and wanted to explore something different that I would enjoy. This happened at the beginning of the pandemic and I was studying to be Canine Specialist (Breeds, Behavior, Grooming, Nutrigenomics, and Training). I also have done the massage for my retired guide dog, Kartie for over 6 years. I thought I need to know the details because I did not know what the strokes and techniques were all about. I explored online looking for virtual courses in canine massage and found Angel’s Animals. The best part is that it is based in Florida.
What animal influenced you the most growing up? Dogs of various breeds and Russian Blue cats influenced me the most, and they were the best thing that ever happened to me while growing up. The dogs, Odin and Spike, were the wonderful protectors. They knew I have no hearing and would alert me if they heard anything that I couldn’t hear. The cats, Rocky and Raspy, loved to sleep with me and often comforted me when I was emotional. I also grew up having a mouse, birds, fishes (in tank), and a turtle. I feel like I am still growing up and still have the love for wild animals. I have a great relationship with wild animals such as getting to feed lemurs and giraffes. I even held 3-foot-long alligators and a python. Some animals felt comfortable to greet me in person and let me pet them. A beautiful camel gave me a big kiss a few years ago.
What animals do you currently own? Kartie, a Black Goldador (Golden x Labrador Retriever Mix), is the only pet I have at this moment and I am waiting to be matched with Kartie’s successor guide dog that may transpire later this year or next. It will be my first time to have two large dogs living with me.
What makes your animal bodywork practice stand out? I have a special close connection with the animals I massage. Many clients have reported improvement in demeanor, gait, stress levels, and apparent pain levels.
What message would you like to share with potential clients? My message is: Please! Bring your dogs in for a much-needed therapeutic massage to improve their quality of life, promote relaxation, reduce stress, and boost their immunity and energy level. When I observe a medium-sized dog whose gait tells me there is something wrong, I want to help. Sometimes owners are not aware of subtle changes in gait that could indicate pathology. I emphasize that the importance of the dog’s comfort zone is my highest priority of care.I love doing the palpation and bodywork to find anything that is hard to find, especially in dogs with very thick coats. On numerous occasions, I have detected pathology that no one was aware of. Kartie is a Stage 2 Mast Cell cancer survivor – the mass was very small and it’s good thing that it was caught early. It’s also paramount for me to feel the way around the dog’s body.
What message would you like to share with others who are thinking about pursuing a career in animal bodywork? I think that anyone who has a passion for taking care of animals of any size is a good candidate for pursuing the animal bodywork career. I think commitment and body handling experience play a key role for success. I advise others who are thinking about this profession to research the laws, statutes, and licensure in their states. If you welcome challenges, love animals, and wish to be involved in a satisfying job, animal bodywork is for you.

Theresa recently had the opportunity to provide healing touch to a wallaby who was in need of some bodywork. The care taker was impressed with her knowledge and grateful for the beneficial session she was able to provide the wallaby.

When did you decide that you wanted to work with animals? My journey of working with animals began when I retired as a USAF Security Forces member and from the Department of Defense in 2018. As with many occupations across the Services, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder hasn’t necessarily become more prevalent, rather more widely acknowledged. I had purchased a rescue Thoroughbred (Jett Fire) for $500. He was in bad shape both mentally and physically. He didn’t make in in the racing world, so was sold over and over and over again. Sadly, he ended up locked and left in a barn with 30+ other horses starving to death.
Over time, I just could not help Jett relax. He would suddenly bolt, spin or buck, more and more often over the years. He would freeze, tremble, or sweat for no apparent reason. Call it fate, one day I came across Dr. Angelique Barbara’s Angel’s Animals website. I browsed the many Equine therapy courses being offered. When previewing some of the course content, there is was…Jett was living in a constant state of anxiety. His Sympathetic Nervous System was engaged every day, all day. This is how my journey started.
What animal influenced you the most growing up? I didn’t realize the influences it at the time. I had been brought up around horses from the age of 14, and the effect has carried through my life to this day. Responsibility, work ethic, learning I can’t always be a winner, learning empathy, creating a special bonds and relationships are critical life skills that have made me successful throughout my life.
What animals do you currently own? Many! A Netherland Dwarf bunny, two parakeets, a Shepard, a husky and Jett. I have a soft spot for “Rescues.”
What makes your animal bodywork practice stand out? I believe in establishing a rapport with both the owners and their horses. I build in “buffer times” for my appointments to engage in conversations. Owners want to talk about their horses. I provide reports in layman’s terms with diagrams and photographs, so the owners understand what is going on with their horses and see the improvements over time. I video tape the entire session for the owners. I aspire my services to be transformational not transactional.
What message would you like to share with potential clients? It is essential I work as a team with the owners and their horses. I insist the owners are available to see the entire session, so I can explain what is happening to their horse and why they are reacting the way they are (both positive and negative responses). Typically by the third session, the horses know when I enter at their barn and often nicker upon my arrival.
What message would you like to share with others who are thinking about pursuing a career in animal bodywork? I will tell you the courses and case studies for completing any of the Angel’s Animals courses are intense. I would ask anyone looking into a career in bodywork, what is the motive? I am able to circle back around with my personal story as I began practicing on my horse, Jett . The techniques and applications of Myo-manipulation Functional Therapy – the effects were PHENOMENOL. He yawned, sighed, dropped his head, licked, chewed, dropped his sheath, it was simply amazing. This was what inspired me to move forward on this new career path. If I could help him, I could help many others. This is one career where you can see and feel the magical transformation of touch.

When did you decide that you wanted to work with animals? I have had a great opportunity and privilege to have been raised around horses & small animals growing up as a little girl. After showing and competing with horses for over 20 years, I went into the field of animal sciences as a licensed Veterinary Technician in 2001, I began at that time to be extremely interested and in “AW” of the anatomy and physiology of the Equine Body.
What animal influenced you the most growing up? Horses, they have been a true passion and influence in my continuing education and research.
What animals do you currently own? I have a Cute Auggie named “Oliver” he is a Corgi/Mini Aussie! And we own and operate a professional horsemanship/clinician practice, JWHA Horsemanship, we currently have 5 horses of our own and over 40 equine companions that we provide a full care service for our clientele here in Farmington Utah.
What makes your animal bodywork practice stand out? I feel what makes my practice stand out, is my experience, education, and time in the industry. Being able to see both sides of the horse (on ground and as a rider) I feel this gives me a bigger and deeper perspective as my role and responsibility as an Equine body worker. My Veterinary Technician background (8 years) allows me to combine my body work and physiology of the horse to get a better perspective on how to truly help, heal and educate the owner and horse!
What message would you like to share with potential clients? I would always encourage owners to continue to listen to the intuition of their horses over all wellbeing, that they may strongly get regarding their equine companions. When we have aches and pains, we seek help! Horses our no different! We are there advocates and knowing there needs and using tools for preventive maintenance such as equine body work, is crucial to the “overall” well being of your Equine Companion! They will move, sleep, eat, digest, play and love you so much greater when they feel good!
What message would you like to share with others who are thinking about pursuing a career in animal bodywork? First and foremost, it is an honor to be a part of the healing and service industry with our equine companions. You will feel so rewarded in your hard work, hands on experience, building relationships and educating the equine public. When you bond with a horse during each body work session, it is a sacred privilege to know you are offering a healing hand and touch that can forever forge a bond of knowing what each horse truly needs!
This course by Doctor Angelique Barbara has truly been one of the greatest investments that I have made yet in my professional background and educational history! I will forever be grateful Dr. Angel!

When did you decide that you wanted to work on animals? Believe it or not, I started playing a therapy harp for farm animals last Jan 2020. I am a Reiki Master, Certified Therapy Harp Healer, and Certfied Massage Therapist. When COVID hit, I could no longer perform human massage and I somehow came across Dr. Angel's courses. I said, WHY NOT?! I took the opportunity to combine all my healer skills for humans and applied them to animals :)
What animal influenced you the most growing up? Dogs
What animals do you currently own? Sadly, I live in an apartment complex and don't own any.
What makes your animal bodywork practice stand out? I use energy work, healing sounds, and intuition to guide my work. I tune in to the animal and listen to what it is they may need. I work according to that. FEELING is my super power here.
What message would you like to share with potential clients? JUST DO IT! Your animal will love and appreciate you for making them feel better in their bodies. It's a gift of relaxation that your animal deserves!
What message would you like to share with others who are thinking about pursing a career in animal bodywork? Intention is everything. Aim to do well for your animal friends and they will respond accordingly. I've received many horse hugs for my work and it always LIGHTS me up! Stay positive...learning takes time...DON'T GIVE UP!
Every month Dr. Barbara acknowledges and showcases one of her certified practitioners! You could be next!
