About

Massage in your home or barn for dogs, cats, horses and all animals, or for all small animals at my Franklin office.

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 en... more

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.

My senior dog Queen has a host of medical issues and Lisa did a great job not only addressing those issues, but also giving spending some time just pampering and relaxing her. She does a wonderful job and I would highly recommend her!

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.

Lisa is excellent. She is knowledgable, gentle, stops when necessary, very social, kind, the best person ever! She knows his problem areas and is he so much better for having her talent be keyed into him. My dog loves her.
