Classes taken

As an animal acupressure and massage practitioner I feel it is important to
continue to study and learn so I can expand and improve my skills. Below are
the classes I have taken over the years. By combining the material from the
classes and working with my clients on a daily basis, I have been able to
grow as a practitioner. I feel very fortunate to have studied with some
amazing instructors and animals and I look forward to learning more!
