Reach your Goals



Welcome to Lively Animal Massage, where compassionate care and healing touch combine to improve the well-being of your beloved animal companions. I specialize in providing massage and energy work to dogs, horses, and cats, with a mission to alleviate pain, reduce stress, and relieve stiffness using a diverse range of techniques, including myofascial release, nerve work, deep tissue massage, and neurovascular release.

Visit my Franklin, MA office at Destination Dog, or enjoy the convenience of in-home sessions within a 30-minute radius of Thompson, CT. Equine massage is available within 45 minutes of Thompson, CT or near Franklin, MA. 


I understand that you want qualified and trained professionals caring for your animal. You can be assured that I will provide the best possible care. I teach The Bancroft School of Massage Therapy's highly regarded animal massage programs. I am also co-chair of the National Board of Certification for Animal Acupuncture and Massage, and have 14 years of experience in animal massage.

Book a session today and see the difference in your companion's overall health and happiness!

When your pet hurts, you feel pain as well. When your animal reaches a training plateau, you feel frustration. Using the methods of myofascial release, massage and Reiki, I can help your dogs perform at their best. These techniques can also provide comfort to elderly animals, prevent injuries, improve their behavior, and, when combined with veterinary care, help speed healing.

Horses are an investment in time, emotion, and finances. Make the most of your horse and avoid costly injuries, lost training time, and early retirement. Maintaining your horse in peak condition, physically and mentally, will keep you advancing toward your goals.

My skills in massage, myofascial release, and Reiki will ensure your progress and enhance your investment.


Are you interested in hosting a workshop at your site? I offer two-hour workshops in dog massage and horse massage. I can tailor the workshop to your individual needs. I am also available for shorter talks or instructional lectures. This may interest you for conformation club meetings, equine clubs and other events. Contact me for further information and we can arrange a time that will work for you.

Energy Healing

Through energy healing, I can help your horse, dog, cat or other animal friend heal naturally by channeling their own internal energies and vitality. Targeted massage techniques, clearing of energy blocks, Reiki, and crystal Reiki can help release stressors in the spirit of your animal, allowing him or her to heal more naturally and on their own terms. 


Reiki and energy healing is included in massage sessions. Distance Reiki and energy healing is available for both animals and people.
