What Makes Me Different?
Heather Wallace, the owner and operator, is a triple-certified massage therapist with a focus on the WHY your animal is out of balance and gentle, effective techniques to help your animal naturally and for long-term health. Most importantly, she places the utmost importance on listening to what your horse or dog’s body tells her through touch and body language so your animal builds trust and confidence, promoting a healthy relationship and dynamic. As a result, she specializes in “sensitive animals” who tend to be reactive, aggressive, or anxious.
*Disclaimer: As a big believer in holistic wellness, Heather finds it is incredibly important to collaborate with other specialists in their fields. With the exception of Heather, all other therapists are trusted colleagues with their own practices in the animal wellness industry and choose to collaborate on a case-by-case basis for the benefit of your animal. They are independent contractors and not employed by Animal Bodywork & Aromatherapy.
