In the classes we show you more than just how to press points to relieve symptoms. Students say that our classes reveal a whole new way of looking at animals and themselves. Our goal is to give you a deeper understanding of health, healing and your connection to animals, as well as giving you the practical skills that make that possible.

Our program is open to everyone. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned professional, our classes give you what you need to start a career in animal acupressure. Come join us and let our experienced teachers and lively classes introduce you to a whole new way of working with animals.
