Animals have always been at the center of my life. I was 6 years old when I got my first pet, a hermit crab. At age 8 I talked my parents into adopting a rabbit that my neighbor had brought home from a research lab. Her name was Flop. Around that time I also found a stray cat that my parents reluctantly let me adopt. He was loyal like a dog and would follow my sister and I to school. My parents received many calls from the school office asking them to come pick up out cat from school. When I was 9 years old when I began to offer free dog walking services and befriended many neighborhood dog owners and dogs. For my 11th birthday my dream of dog ownership became a reality. My parents bought me my very own dog, a Bichon-Frise puppy, who was the granddaughter of the dog that I had been walking for the past 2 years.
Throughout my childhood and teenage years I was active in 4-H and the American Kennel Club. My dogs were both certified therapy dogs and we regularly visited people in nursing homes and the hospital. In the 1990s, I enjoyed showing my dogs in showmanship, obedience, and the AKC breed ring and was proud to have earned many titles and awards with them. I also showed my cats and rabbits in 4-H and won several grand champion awards with them.
As an adult, I have wonderful companion dogs and a cat that bring much joy to my life. I am also an avid equestrian and enjoy training and showing my horses. I have a horse massage business called Bradley Equine. www.bradleyequine.com
I pride myself on the high-standard of care and services that I offer. I continue to be amazed by the many ways that massage can help improve the lives of animals and feel honored to be able to give back to the animals who give their love so selflessly to us.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Everything You Need to Know
HOW IS MASSAGE DIFFERENT THAN PETTING MY ANIMAL?
Petting is an important form of touch and connection that people engage in with their pets. Dogs and cats often seek out touch because it feels good and is an important aspect of their communication with humans. By all means you and your pet should enjoy the time you spend petting them.
Massage is a fully-intentional touch. The animal massage therapist is trained to feel temperature changes, tissue abnormalities, muscle tension and weaknesses. A trained therapist is touching with anatomical knowledge, an understanding of kinesiology, and has developed a sense of what is considered within a healthy range because they have the opportunity to work with a variety of animals. Your therapist is also trained to identify contraindications (when massage is not advised) to ensure the best quality of care is being provided for your animal’s current condition. Using a wide variety of proven techniques a massage therapist can help to release tight muscles and stimulate the tone of weak muscles. Other specialized techniques such as manual ligament therapy, manual lymphatic drainage, and circulatory support are studied and utilized by trained therapists.
IS MASSAGE A SUBSTITUTE FOR VETERINARY CARE?
Massages is provided for the basic purpose of relaxation and relief of muscular tension. Massage is not a substitute for medical examination, diagnosis, or treatment. You should take your animal to see a veterinarian if it exhibits any mental or physical ailments.
Massage therapists do not diagnose prognoses, or treat diseases, deformities, defects, wounds, or injuries; adjust or manipulate any articulations of the animal's body or spine; perform acupuncture; or perform mechanical therapies that are restricted to the field of veterinary medicine.
Your massage therapist is happy to consult and collaborate with your veterinarian to determine whether massage therapy is appropriate for your pet and work with your veterinarian to develop a supportive massage plan.
Message can be a great complement to veterinary care for certain conditions, but is not a substitute for working with your veterinarian.
