What Is Animal Massage Therapy?
Animal Massage Therapy is an experiential interaction that involves awakening clients and horses/other animals in relationship to deeper consciousness within the Self and with each other. This type of inter-species therapy allows us to better identify patterns and/or behaviors that are no longer helpful in our lives. The goal is for the client to develop skills such as responsibility, problem-solving, positive self-image, and emotional balance. Animal Therapy can help one to find better grounding and healthier relationships in life.
In regards to those special animals in your life, animal therapy can reduce stress, improve performance and resolve pain issues with some immediate results. Recently, I studied with the renown Linda Tellington-Jones in how to work with dogs in particular. I found the class to be uplifting and very harmonious in bringing clearer understanding between our dogs responses to how they are feeling and also in relationship to other animals and people around them. Often when a dog reacts “negatively” it may because he is afraid. Often aggression or other defensive measures are a sign of fear. Questioning how to reduce that fear and using some of the techniques that Tellington TTouch® offers may significantly reduce stress and bring more balance into the situation.
