Relax HAOK9 Massage Level 2 module

Relax HAOK9 Massage logoFollowing on from the successful Relax HAOK9 module we designed and delivered last year, this weekend we delivered the Level 2 module to 12 practitioners from the Healing Animal Organisation.

As well as covering theory about conditions the therapists might be referred from vets, and ways to treat well dogs or canine athletes, the two day course had 4 practical elements.

The students learned a further 8 massage techniques to add to the 11 they learned in Level 1.

The second day concentrated on learning passive movements and stretches.  This was followed by practicising a number of active exercises that can be shown to the owners to keep their dog in top condition or for rehabiliation and prevention.
