You love your animal friend and they, like us, suffer injuries and pain in their
muscles and, as a medical massage therapist I seek to help your friend attain
the best possible health that I can by applying the same care I do to all of my
clients. I come to your home or barn to treat your animal friend and as a
benefit I am available to work on you at a discounted rate. Note- Canines
are required to be restrained or muzzled to prevent injury to the therapist
because when an animal friend hurts they can react in unintentional ways.
