Equine Acupressure

Kathy is a dual certified Animal Acupressure Practitioner practitioner, certified in both Equine and Small Animal Acupressure. She is also a certified equine sports massage therapist providing services (in the winter months) in the Tuscaloosa - Birmingham, AL area, and offers her service in the summer months in upstate NY). Her practice includes horses, dogs, and cats and the occasional goat. 

Kathy has been working to help animals since 2004 when she received her certification in Equine Sports Massage from Healing Touch Animal Massage in Birmingham, AL. Included in the Healing Touch training was a course in acupressure which proved so effective that she began her studies with Tallgrass Animal Acupressure Resources in CO. She completed her 300 hour coursework in Small Animal Acupressure in 2012 and her Equine Acupressure certification in 2014. She was able to make immediate use of her new skill set on her own horses and dogs.

She is a member of the National Board of Certification for Animal Acupressure & Massage (NBCAAM), the International Association of Animal Hospice and Palliative Care, and the Associated Body Work & Massage Professionals.
