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


  • 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.

    Good!!!!!!! Lisa kept me informed during my horse's massage. She also gave me recommendations on what Massage techniques I can do between her visits.

  • 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.

    It was our first time there and it was a extremely pleasant experience .

  • Lisa is so good at relaxing Bailey.

    My first experience with any masseus! I think Lisa does a good job with the ambience considering the space. Fabulous with my girl Maggie, that's what's important to me

  • 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.

    Connects with pet and understands their unique needs. Kip looks forward to his visit and feels much better after his massage with Lisa....

  • 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 definitely made a Hugh difference in the recovery time and comfort of my dog.

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.
