animal acupressure massageAnita is a certified Equine and Small Animal Acupressure Practitioner with accreditation from the Tallgrass Animal Acupressure Institute. Her Tallgrass training has included two consecutive summers in Bath, England, near where she lived as a child, as well as coursework in Colorado and northern California. Anita's journey into the world of alternative health care for animals comes after a successful career in advertising. Owning a business with her husband for the last 15 years has given her the courage and stability to now pursue her passion and love of animals. Having recently relocated to southern Utah from Las Vegas, Anita will offer acupressure therapy to animals in both Nevada and southern Utah.

Anita shares her life with not only her husband but also her overly pampered cats and horses. She credits her cat Espresso for inspiring her toward a stimulating and fulfilling career change -- the study of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Anita delights in sharing her knowledge with fellow guardians of the animals we have taken into our care.
