Professional Training in Holistic Animal Therapies
This module focuses on reading and interpreting body language and feedback from the canine client during a massage as well as basic handling techniques to assist in providing the massage. We discuss your body position relative to the animal and how to position your client to reduce the risk of injury.

We review and discuss various activies and disciplines dogs are involved in and the effects these activites have on the canine body and structure. We also discuss various training methods used in schools and at homes and how these can affect your massage sessions.

The anatomy and correct function of the hindlimb is introduced and important structures and landmarks are palpated and identified on live animals. Muscular issues and their resultant functional implications are also discussed and relevant massage and stretching techniques are presented.
