Animal Bodyworker Conference
Hosted by: IAAMB/ACWT and NBCAAM

September 26, Thursday AM

Jonathan will be teaching a 3-hour CE workshop: “Canine Myofascial Release.”
You already know what the muscular fascia is. In this workshop, we’ll learn ways to identify subtle muscular and energetic movement. These fundamental applications are essential in massage. They will transform your sense of touch and elevate the quality and intentionality of your canine massage.

September 27, Friday 5 PM

Jonathan, as President of the IAAMB/ACWT, will facilitate the conference member networking/planning meeting.

September 28, Saturday 3-4:30 PM

Jonathan, creator of the PetMassage WaterWork Program, and President of the ACWT, Association of Canine Water Therapy, will be delivering a PowerPoint presentation on “Canine Water Massage.”

Imagine yourself shoulder deep in a large heated pool, holding a dog, suspended in water in front of you. You guide the dog’s body in large, sweeping movements across the surface of the water. You watch the ripples on the surface. You feel how the water drags and drifts the dog’s coat and body. There is a powerfully therapeutic value that this dog is getting. The effects of massage are enhanced.

In water, with your guidance, the dog’s body moves in ways it cannot move on dry land. Skin, coat and musculoskeletal structures float into and away from each other. Restrictions from holding patterns release. Alternative and integrative neuromuscular systems engage.

When your dog experiences his body WaterWorking, it is joyful, relaxing, rejuvenating, rebalancing, reconditioning, resoundingly therapeutic and amazingly beneficial. And the experience is just as exhilarating for you, the Canine Aquatic Massage Practitioner as well. This is The PetMassage™ WaterWork™!
