New Book From PetMassage:

Transitions PetMassage Energy Work for the Aging & Dying . . . Dog

TRANSITIONS celebrates life ... and death. It is about helping. It is about being empowered. It is the story of the last days of Oskar the boxer, teaching assistant extraordinaire at the PetMassage™ School in Toledo Ohio.

The skills you will learn in this little book will help you support your dog during any transition in his/her life; the most difficult being the last one, the end of life. This is a book of hope and love that will comfort dog owners during times of grief and despair when we feel the most vulnerable and helpless.

Learn about the power of holding patterns, fascia, transition massage, alternative end of life care and assistance for dogs and their guardians.

There are sections on geriatric massage, relaxation massage, energy balancing, and using mudras to enhance the effects of snapping and the pain drain.

Learn many valuable bodywork techniques to use time and again and want to share with other pet owners.
