Rates & Such
Introduction & Evaluation - $20
This includes meeting your critter, taking information and introducing them to the massage touch. This can last from two minutes to twenty depending on the situation. It also gives me a chance to see the environment that is available for performing the massage.
Regular Session - $40
This is for a standard massage session that can last from 45 minutes to and hour depending on the dog and the techniques indicated by their needs.
Repeat & Regular Sessions - Discount Varies
If your animal is in need of rehabilitation or you would like regular sessions, a discount is available depending on the situation. There is also a discount if you own multiple animals in one location. Please email or call for details.
NEW OFFER - I've always offered my services free of charge to rescues and fosters but wanted to make it an official announcement. If this applies to you and you have an animal that could use some stress relief or help with recovery from anything - emotional and physical - please contact me to set it up. Thanks!
Prepare yourself and your pet for the massage:
Massaging animals is different from massaging humans. Animals dictate how long they are interested in receiving treatment - especially at the first session.
It is generally a new and different sensation, plus a new person touching them so it may take a while for them to adjust.
The ideal situation is to have a quiet area available with as few distractions as possible, and to have your pet clean and dry. This doesn't mean you have to give them a bath before I show up, but not muddy or full of burrs or something!
I am flexible as to where to do the massage, so I can be on the floor with them, or a bed, couch or even a chair - depending on the size of your pet and what they are comfortable with.
