About Us

Welcome fellow dog lovers!

As my dog Emma started to age, I became interested in canine massage as a way to help her with her arthritis and the aging process.  After her TPLO surgery, massage was particularly helpful for her along with laser therapy for inflammation. Massage also helped my male Dash when he strained his shoulder with his typical crazy antics.

As in human massage, canine massage incorporates Swedish massage, acupressure, myofascial release, stretching and Gua Sha techniques.  A typical canine massage session can last between 15 minutes to an hour depending on the size of the dog, the type of work needed and how the dog does with the session. Dogs with lameness, arthritis, CCL and Iliopsoas injuries, Weekend Warrior soreness, and stress all benefit from Massage as well as K9 athletes.

As a former Licensed Massage Therapist my practice specialized in Pre-Natal massage, Infant Massage Instruction for new parents and energy work. For human massage I studied, Swedish, Myofascial release and unwinding, cranial sacral, pre-natal and infant massage and Reiki.

Utilizing my training and certification in Canine Myo-Manipulative Functional Therapies to help your dogs brings me Happiness.

I am excited to partner with Sentinel Canine, to bring the benefits of massage to their canine clients and to dogs from the seacoast area!  Stay tuned for some exciting modalities that will be coming soon.
