Amanda’s Bodywork Education
I first became interested in massage in the late 90’s when I was a teenager. At that time I was running my Border Collie, Chance and I wanted to understand how I could help her be less sore at the end of a trial weekend.
I bought every book I could get my hands on at the time (which were very few) when I found that I couldn’t find many canine massage books, I started looking into equine massage and applying those techniques to dogs.
I started offering free canine massages at local trials as a way to further my experience and education. My Dad bought me my first massage table when I was around 20 years old and he saw how passionate I was about it.
I enrolled in every online canine massage class I could as they started becoming popular, and took private lessons with a human massage therapist as well. Any canine or equine bodyworker that would let me ask questions and learn from them I did. I took multiple equine massage classes, as well as human.
As bodywork became more and more popular over the years with performance dogs, I studied everything I could. Acupressure and Traditional Chinese Medicine really intrigued me and I instantly fell in love with using acupressure for agility dogs. Combining it with massage produced amazing results.
I am always wanting to expand my education, so I studied everything I could; canine massage for rehabilitation, canine fitness, manual ligament therapy (MLT), kinesiology taping, cold laser, craniosacral, nutrition, and more.
Massage, Acupressure, and Bodywork is one of my passions (along with canine nutrition and agility!) and I love working with dogs and seeing improvements with each session.
