I provide equine and canine therapies (acupressure, craniosacral, and massage) to Frederick, Maryland and the surrounding regions. I also offer my services in other parts of the USA and abroad, given sufficient advance notice and arrangements.
I have worked with animals all my life, starting with ponies, horses, and dogs from a very young age. I've spent a good part of my adult life living abroad in Africa, working for the Wildlife Conservation Society (the International branch of the NY Zoological Society/Bronx Zoo) building and managing programs in Congo, South Sudan, and Kenya.
I obtained my animal bodywork certifications from the Rocky Mountain School for Acupressure and Massage (RMSAAM) in Colorado, USA. I am certified in 3 levels of each canine and equine therapies including: therapeutic, sports/performance animals, and seniors. I am also certified in equine and canine craniosacral therapy by completing the full 6 level course and an extensive mentorship under Tracy Vroom, a well known equine and canine craniosacral therapist/instructor in Colorado. Additionally, I am trained in and familiar with Tellington Touch (TTEAM and TTOUCH) methods.
While in Africa, I had my practice based out of Rottcher Surgery in Karen-Nairobi, Kenya where I worked on horses and dogs throughout Kenya. I am now settled in Frederick, Maryland, where I practice in the region, and when requested in other areas of the USA and internationally.
