Massage for animals with Joy

How does Joy do massage on animals?

Joy states that she is a medical intuitive, what is that exactly and what does that involve?

This involves utilizing a focused, intuitive instinct to scan the energetic and frequency information in and around the body in a systematic fashion. It results in information that may be physical, mental, emotional, spiritual or environmental. A ‘Medical Intuitive’ is a person who practices this art and science. What a medical intuitive can do will depend upon their natural skill level, professional experience, and background and education. Typically, a medical intuitive will ‘scan’ a client’s body (and being) – intuitively.

Joy uses this ability when doing massage on animals.  First, she has them move and evaluates the movement up and back and side movement as well.  As the animal is moving, she can actually “feel” what is “off” as they move.  As she does this, she is using her extensive training from her pre-veterinary animal science classes to evaluate what is going on.  Once the movement is evaluated and areas of the body are determined to be hurting or tight, the massage begins.  Because Joy can feel what the animal feels, once a knot is relieved she can feel it.  Then the animal is moved again and a re-evaluation is performed again.  This process continues until Joy gets a “full body shake” from the animal.  This is interpreted as the animal readjusting itself and so balancing itself.

The entire process can take as little as 10 minutes or a longer session can be 30′ in length.  The animal determines when the session is over and the price of the service is not changed no matter how short or long the session is.  The client is usually given some “homework” to help keep their pet feeling good.  IF Joy determines that maybe the severity of the problem warrants chiropractic, acupuncture or other veterinary care she will give the client these recommendations as well.

Joy has a Masters of Science in Oriental Medicine (graduated Jan. 2015) which means that she has attended and graduated from human acupuncture school.  She also graduated from  the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society veterinary acupuncture course in 1992.  With this background, she uses her knowledge in this area to help the animal become more balanced and comfortable.   Joy has small devices that she can manually use to stimulate acupuncture points, acupuncture can’t be done at this time until Joy becomes a licensed acupuncturist in California and can only be performed under the auspices of a CA licensed veterinarian.

In the meantime, every effort is taken to restore your pet’s movement to normal and make your pet happier and relaxed.

Cost: $40-50 for a dog session and $125.00 for a horse.  Traveling fees are determined and estimated before the session.
