One of my favorite websites to learn about animal massage is aptly called “All About Animal Massage.” Megan Ayrault is an expert on the subject and offers many free, informational videos here as well as fee courses. Her classes cover both dogs and horses. Here is a short bio about Megan from her site:
“Megan Ayrault is a Licensed Massage Practitioner for animals and people and a professional educator with a Master in Teaching degree from Seattle University. Prior to her current bodywork career, Megan worked in schools and with horses, and enjoyed teaching therapeutic riding for children and adults with disabilities. The therapy horses, as well as her own animals, were her original motivation for learning massage.”
She also periodically offers related resources from other practitioners, such as Vicki Draper, who works in CranioSacral Therapy (CST) for animals. I have actually had CST performed on myself and it was a huge relief when I was dealing with lower back pain. You can check out Vicki’s site here. You can sign up to receive her free e-book called “Healing Your Animal Quick Start Package.” Vicki is offering a free teleclass on “Healing Your Animal” that is being offered on July 30th at 10 AM (PDT). More details here. Apologies for the short notice, but I just learned of this opportunity.
