We had the privilege of designing and delivering the first canine massage module in collaboration with Elizabeth Whiter and the Healing Animal Organisation. The module was called Relax HAOK9 Massage and was for the graduates of HAO diplomas.
The first cohort was of 12 students who brought along a number of dogs. We added Sarah and Sam to the mix as they are rather used to being demonstration dogs so know exactly what to do to help.
All the students passed the module and are now able to add this physical therapy skill of canine relaxation massage to their existing multi-modal holistic therapeutic skills.
It is wonderful knowing that there will now be plenty of grateful dogs nationally who will have access to professional relaxation massage therapy.
