Increasingly, pets and animals have become akin to family members, and as a result are treated more attentively and with greater care than ever before. In response to pet and animal owners' growing interest in providing pets with top notch care that lengthens their lifespan and improves quality of life, while minimizing trips to the veterinarian's office, the Northwest School of Animal Massage (NWSAM), announced today a new series of wellness workshops for consumers.
The NWSAM, known for its highly regarded certificate program in animal massage which provides students worldwide with the professional skills to care for animals using the practice of massage therapy, will now extend its holistic offerings to pet and animal owners that wish to learn new techniques for caring for their animals. The new Wellness Workshop series of four weekend workshops is open to all animal enthusiasts, and promise to provide pet lovers with the tools and guidance to engage in holistic care for their furry friends.
