Based out of Nanaimo, BC, I am the only certified, licensed, insured Canine Massage and Acupressure Professional in the area. I travel from Qualicum Beach to Chemainus to provide a safe, natural, holistic method of maintaining your dog’s health and wellbeing. I have owned pets my entire life, and have been practicing canine massage for 10 years, and I obtained my Canine Acupressure Professional accreditation in February 2023. I hold certifications in Therapeutic Maintenance Massage; Performance (canine athletes and working dogs) Massage; Rehabilitation Massage; Trigger Point Therapy; Stress Point Therapy; Manual Lymphatic Drainage; Myofascial Release Therapy; Massage and Acupressure Protocols for Geriatric Animals; 1st and 2nd Degree Reiki; Animal Reiki; and I am a Walks ‘N’ Wags Pet First Aid Instructor. I became a Canine Massage Professional because of my love for dogs. I wanted to pursue a career where I could make a difference, while promoting their health and well-being.
