Donna is a Canine Massage practitioner who began riding 6 years ago and was introduced to Equine Touch for her horse. She was intrigued by the therapy and found she could also apply the techniques to her dogs. After Griz, her beloved dog, broke his back in a car wreck, she began utilizing Canine Touch as one of the modalities when she massaged him with amazing results. Through utilizing Canine Touch modalities in massage, she has been able to relieve his pain and restore some muscle development. Griz is now able to use a doggie "wheelchair" and is getting some movement back in his hind legs which had been paralyzed. Donna has a BA in Anthropology and Sociology and a MAG of Applied Geography. She became a Reiki Master in June 2008.

Her journey into Canine Rehabilitation and Canine Massage began when her Dalmatian was hit by a car and severely injured. Applying human modalities to her dog, she received an “A+” from the orthopedic veterinarian who performed all the surgeries. Jo’s Canine Massage, which she has been providing at Stay N Play Pet Ranch for 12 years now, brings animals the same benefits of massage whether it is for stress, rehabilitation, emotional stress, sports rejuvenation, or relaxation. She believes our companion animals should receive the same opportunities of health and well-being that we give to ourselves. After all, isn’t that part of unconditional love?
