Massage for Four-Legged Clients
Did you know that there are massage therapists that specialize on four-legged clients, such as horses and dogs?  Massage therapists work in veterinarian offices, barns, tack rooms - wherever their animal clients call home.  Some therapists work on people, their horses and their dogs. There are some therapists that began their massage career working on humans while others specialized on animals first.  
"Many pet owners willingly invest in services to enhance their animal's well-being, even when they won't spend the money on themselves."   It is expected that US spending on pets will top $55 billion in 2013!
Animal massage therapists not only work on horses and dogs; they also may work on cats, ferrets, minks, rabbits, goats and sheep.  Massage can be used to help deliver babies by using acupressure points to help with contractions.
Interesting Fact - Often pets and their owners seem to suffer from the same ailments.  Active owners with…

REFLEXOLOGY - What is it?

REFLEXOLOGY - massage to relieve tension by finger pressure; based on the belief that there are reflex points on the feet, hands, and head that are connected to every part of the body. Reflexology is normally done without the use of oil, cream or lotion.
The following charts show how parts of your feet correspond to different body parts:

In general, the benefits of reflexology have to do with the reduction of stress.  Because the feet and hands help set the tension level for the rest of the body, they are an easy way to interrupt the stress signal and reset the body's equilibrium.
