My focus is to add movement quality to your pet’s program in the most considerate way possible. I firmly believe that most bodywork does not need to be done with intense pressure. Relaxation and optimal results are still to be had without leaving muscles sore after a massage. In fact, it has been my experience that I am able to get further relaxation and better results by teaching and allowing animals to reset their own bodies based on the directions I give them via caring touch.
I was trained in Sports Massage at the beginning of my career. I am so very grateful for this training and the relief it provided many animals along the way. My massages were already a combination of soothing techniques, deep tissue & acupressure points, and producing some amazing results, however, I had a horse that needed a little extra attention. I added trigger point therapy in 2018 to expand my practice and continue my education. I made it my mission to find bodywork that this horse didn’t just tolerate, that wasn’t just effective: I wanted him to enjoy the process as well! The way to an animal’s heart is sometimes by efficiency. I thought maybe he’d like a more direct approach. I started trigger point in the spring of 2018. At long last, I was able to find a Bowen Therapy course on the East Coast! This modality is a wonderful combination of the acupressure points the horses’ love, trigger point releases, and a gentle touch. The ability of a Bowen session to continue to encourage the body to reset for days after a session is remarkable and never leaves the client sore or unable to do their regular work. In fact, work and movement are encouraged!
From there I began to craft something I like to call Feather Touch Trigger Point. A combination of the modalities I have studied, Feather Touch Trigger Point incorporates a gentle touch as well as the skill to locate trigger points and help the animal release them in a way that doesn’t increase resistance to touch. I pull from my education in anatomy, unique Bowen techniques, and the feedback I receive from the animals to make each session a personalized and positive experience for your pet.
