I began my equine body work career in 2008, looking to give back to the wonderful horses involved in Special Equestrians, a local therapy riding program for special needs children and adults.
In early 2009 I became a Certified Equine Acupressure Practitioner, after completing my training at Tallgrass Animal Acupressure Institute ( TAAI ), which is based in Larkspur, Colorado. This is a comprehensive 330 Learning Unit program, or 164 Continuing Education Hours through the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Body Work (NCBTMB). Tallgrass is acknowledged world wide as the premier educator when it comes to Animal Acupressure.
I am a true animal lover, and I love to work with all animals. I am a member of Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals (ABMP). I have also completed course work in Tui Na, a form of Chinese Medical Massage techniques.
I look forward to working with you and your animals, and contributing to years of health and balance. My goal is to help them feel their best!
During an acupressure session, I will assess your horse with you and offer a specific set of acupressure points that will address your horse's particular needs.
You can also participate in your horse's health by learning a few essential acupressure points and Tui Na techniques (Chinese Medical Massage), that I will show you. These can be used between professional acupressure sessions.
