Philosophy and Comments        

Treat animals with the same love and respect that you would afford a human being. Keep lines of non-verbal communication open. Respect an animal's ability to feel pleasure and pain and to feel that he is in charge of his own body. When teaching someone about Companion Animal Massage make sure that person understands the principles of non-verbal communication and the overriding importance of that modality.
