canine acupressure massageIn 2002, after careers in teaching and information management, Phillipa began practising her healing and animal skills in earnest. She is a qualified Tai Chi teacher and Healer for people and animals, and now cares for 6 horses and a dog at home. She first became interested in Acupressure, having used the Tallgrass book to help save a very poorly foal, and believes it is an important tool that everyone should be aware of for managing health issues. She finds acupressure is an ideal partner for the energy healing she offers. She is now adding muscle management techniques to her portfolio in order to enable maximal effectiveness of the acupressure, in addition to relieving discomfort.

She believes that our animal friends have spiritual needs just their owners do and that the acupressure approach is helpful because it incorporates the emotional health with physical care. She feels that the hands on, 'listening' nature of acupressure is an important part of the effectiveness of the therapy.
