  • Body and Gait Mechanics for PetMassage™ Practitioners Workshop

    September 19, 2019 @ 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM
    PetMassage Training & Research Institute, 2950 Douglas Rd, Toledo, OH 43606, USA

    Body and Gait Mechanics for PetMassage™ Practitioners Workshop

    4 Hour on-site workshop. 

    The Body Mechanics workshop will help you transform the way you move. When you move more comfortably you will interact with dogs with increased balance, stability and confidence.

    Our dogs are very aware of how we are feeling. Any limp, slouch, and imbalance in your gait signals them that you are not completely available for them. When you move in balance and ease, you feel more alive. Moreover, your dog will be relieved to know that you are well and happy. The dogs will entrain with your improved posture, gait and breathing.

    New concepts in neural- and vestibular brain science will get your body moving in grace and comfort.

    • Identify where your balance and gait may need some modifications 
    • Learn science-based drills to get “back in balance.” 

    Note: This workshop is held on a Thursday, the first day of each Foundation Level Workshop.

    Fee: When taken on its own, this workshop is $99.
