Yes, Your FURBABY has Fascia.

Animals can get injured by a hard swing by a child, squeezing them, jumping from too high, or running for too long.  They can twist a hip, a knee, or an ankle and pull ligament tendons and fascia. They could also be an athlete and used in competition. 

Self-care is optimal daily.  Spending time brushing or running your hand over their muscles can be an early prediction of injury, cancer, or pain.

Did you know your pet communicates with you all day long? Though looks, a meow, a bark, a twerp, or nah from a horse. Eye contact is essential if you are out with your pet walking, riding, or simply hanging with your cat; make eye contact with them and talk to them from your heart. They respond well to energies and mostly unspoken words. Your pet reflects how you treat them.

When I work with an animal, a lot of the time is getting to know the animal, it may not look like much to you, but just like getting to know a child or earning their trust, they have to feel your energy and your intention.

Pet parents can be like helicopter parents, speaking for their animals. I can hear their thoughts, and most often, it is not the words you put in their mouths.

Treatment is best to be done when you are not present as your animal, especially if it is a dog, is on the job when you are in the room. I can override that energetically, but it wastes time.

For ligament issues, I recommend

  1. Prolo injections
  2.  PRP
  3. Less long runs or walks

For fascia issues and direct lymphatic treatment is necessary

For Tendon issues

  1. Glucosamine or variation daily
  2. Fish oils
  3. Gentle massage daily


I have been called. an “animal whisperer.” I have even talked to geckos and spiders with great success.

My astute listening skills produce excellent results with stressed animals have a physical injury, abuse, incontinence, or behavioral issues.

Benefits of SFT include faster recovery from injury or surgery, reduced stress, improved motor function, pain reduction, increased strength and range of motion, performance enhancement, and improved quality of life and connection with the owner.

Let’s get Technical


SFT Manual Therapies

Lymphatic drainage is a gentle way to help your pet heal and relax. The lymphatic system performs three important tasks.

  1. It helps maintain the fluid balance between the blood vessels and the tissues.
  2. The lymphatic system plays a significant role in immunity.
  3. This important system also absorbs digested fats from the small intestine.

The lymphatic system is organized into two groups – the primary organs and the secondary organs.

  1. Primary Organs: The thymus gland and the bone marrow are primary organs. They regulate the production and differentiation of lymphocytes – the cells that make up the immune system.
  2. Secondary Organs: The secondary organs include the lymphatic vessels, lymph nodes, aggregated lymphoid tissue, and spleen. To some extent, these secondary organs are involved in all three lymphatic functions.

Movement is essential to get the lymphatics moving.

FTI and Dynamic Brain Healing Therapies for Animals

Feline/canines and humans have similar cranial structures. There are approximately 29 cranial bones that are connected with sutures. Cranial bones are meant to move in a consistent and rhythmical (different from the breathing rhythm and heart rhythm) pattern with each other and the sacrum in the pelvis.  The cranial-sacral rhythm is faster in canines, 14 – 16 times per minute, than in humans, 8 – 12 times per minute.

This rhythm is a shock absorber and helps distribute the cerebral spinal fluid. The regular rhythm between the skull and sacrum is essential for the animal’s health and the muscular-skeletal system’s successful function. Common cranial symptoms can be

  1. Headaches/migraines
  2. Chronic ear and sinus infections
  3. Lack of energy
  4. Excessive yawning
  5. Equilibrium problems
  6. General not feeling well
  7. Headaches and tilts
  8. Lack of energy
  9. Seizures
  10. Digestive issues

Other Therapies – Include Fascia Stretching SFT, exercise, therapeutic stretches, and massage.

Heat therapy uses heat packs or warm, moist towels to decrease pain and inflammation and speed healing.

Animal rehabilitation therapy has dramatically expanded over the years to include help for dogs/cats/horses suffering a wide range of disabling conditions, including gait abnormalities, spinal cord injuries, joint injuries, soft tissue injuries, arthritis, inflammation and swelling, pain, overuse injuries, and geriatric conditions.

Obesity. The general rule is don’t feed your pet human food, chips, junk food, sugar, or fake foods. Health problems resulting from obesity are similar to humans – joint and musculoskeletal problems, exercise and heat intolerance, and lung and heart disease.

Exercise is an essential component in achieving weight loss while at the same time building muscle mass and improving an animal’s strength and overall condition. Exercise therapy for obesity should be customized for the individual patient.


Conditions Treated Include

  1.  Head Injury
  2. Hip dysplasia
  3. Arthritis
  4. Incontinence
  5. Joint Pain
  6. Migraines
  7. Muscles Pain
  8. Nervousness
  9. Low Energy
  10. Depressed
