About Us

You've trained, worked and spent years bonding with your dog, horse, cat, or other companion animal, who means the world to you. Whether your goal is reaching peak performance, overcoming injury more quickly, solving behavior problems, or just enjoying your animal's old age together,  I will set you back on the path to reaching that goal. The tools I use are massage, myofascial release, and energy techniques like Reiki.

I serve areas within 40 minutes of Thompson, CT with no additional fee. To travel more than 40 minutes outside Thompson, I charge a $25 travel fee/ barn call. I also have an office...

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Unlike other massage therapy treatments, which our 13 year old lab has had, yesterday's session was all inclusive. Besides thoroughly and methodically assessing Charlie's body and mobility issues, Lisa was very mindful of Charlie's other health problems and tailored the session to meet his overall needs. Lisa's ability to see the bigger picture is a credit to her profession. All in all, we were very impressed with the treatment, and look forward to seeing a positive difference in Charlie's movement going forward.

  • Lisa was great with my dog and she will be seeing my other dog as well, both for arthritis pain

    I am so happy/pleased after just one session with Lisa.. Pebs has been moving more freely and with less fear! I expect after a couple of more sessions, my sweetie will be back to normal!

  • She was very kind and gentle with my elderly dog. She made sure he was comfortable. I could tell by how he walked and carried himself that his joints felt better after she was done.

    Very caring and patient. First visit and it seemed to make a difference.

  • I saw how much compassion and dedication you have in what you do and how you do it. I also appreciate the way you handled Angel, who is not always comfortable with strangers let alone let them touch her.

    Lisa was very calm and patient. She was able to settle my dog down relatively quickly and start working on his problem areas. It was great that she explained what she was feeling and where. I was extremely happy with my experience and will be going back.

  • Lisa made us feel comfortable and she was incredibly patient with my dog who was a bit energetic!

    Lisa was calm, knowledgeable, and patient...she's amazing! Ellie Mae has had a tough couple days and I think the massage really helped not only physically, but emotionally too. Lisa even showed me a few things I can do to strengthen Ellie's core to help with her posture. It was a relaxing hour for myself too, which I wasn't really expecting. We'll definitely be back!

Lisa is very patient and calm with my high-drive, young dog. I rely on her to alert me to and massage out any potential muscular concerns before they turn into a problem that could affect our ability to train and compete in ringsport. He really likes his massage time -- for him to lie still for more than 10 seconds is nothing short of amazing.

During the visits, Lisa clearly explains what Dustin's issues that day and what she most needs to work on to help him. She gives us advice on what we can do when we are all home. We really appreciate that she sends an e-mail to review Dustin's session . This email also goes out his other therapists. Dustin definitely shows an improvement after his visits. Dustin rates his Auntie LIsa 5 Licks

My first impression when entering the therapy room was calm and inviting. Just by watching Brandi walk Lisa was able to identify some of the issues right away. She is very knowledgable, caring and professional. Her skill level is amazing, she knows exactly what to do and massaged Brandi with precision. Lisa explained what she was doing as she moved along and helped me understand what issues Brandi was having. After the session, Lisa compiled her notes explaining what she found and where the issues were with a dog diagram. The notes were so helpful for me to understand what is going on with my dog. I personally know the benefits of massage on the human body and am sure with more visits with Lisa, Brandi will benefit greatly.

Lisa is great with my Holly Collie. She is gentile, and patient when Holly is restless. Lisa is very experienced and knowledgeable about massage and Reiki techniques and can easily pinpoint areas that are tight or need attention. Lisa's background as a dog trainer gives her the ability to quickly understand a dogs body language and how to minimize any stress. She keeps very detailed and easy to understand records for each session.

I brought my dog, Henry, in for a massage to see f it would help with his strained ligament in his knee. Lisa was immediately able put my dog at ease, who has never been massaged before. She was attentive to all his signs and knew when to take a break and move to another area, let him drink water etc. The next day, Henry was actually putting more weight on that leg and he seemed to be more playful and happy! I'm very grateful and hopeful and will continue with the massage.

Lisa is very good about adjusting to Dustin's "moods". If she is working on one spot and he moves, she either tries it another way or works on another area....She explains things to us and answers all our questions ...Also, very quickly after Dustin's Sessions, she sends us a report which reviews his condition and what she did. She also sends the report to his other Therapists from the Canine Joint and Blue Heron Acupuncture.... I certainly rate her 5 stars an Dustin rates her 5 licks

My dog, Dolly, is very reticent and a big thinker -- if something isn't her idea it takes a while for her to come around to your way of thinking! Lisa is patient, quiet and deliberate and on her second visit, Dolly relaxed and opened up a bit more. It is areal plus that Dolly can be seen at home so as not to add anxiety to the experience. I would not hesitate to recommend Lisa to any pet owner of a small or large animal, as an avenue of treatment.

Our GSD gets regular massage for chronic pain and stiffness. We prefer this treatment option over drug therapy due to side effects such as stomach upset from pain meds. Lisa is very patient and supportive and our dog has learned to enjoy her massage and it clearly makes her more comfortable and makes her move more normally.
