animal acupressure massageMelinda became interested in acupressure when her Cairn Terrier, Bubba, was diagnosed with a compressed disk in her back and traditional care left her unable to walk and in such pain that even a gentle touch would make Bubba howl in pain. Melinda never imaged starting her own business but after taking Bubba to a holistic vet for acupuncture and seeing her dog walk again, Melinda decided to learn more about Traditional Chinese Medicine and to share the benefits with others.

Melinda has also learned therapeutic massage for dogs and is a Level 2 Reiki practitioner. All these tools can be used to maintain the health and well-being of your faithful companion in a loving, gentle manner.
