What Our Students Have To Say

I researched several animal massage schools before attending PetMassage™ Training and Research Institute. I felt PetMassage™ would best meet my needs. After attending PetMassage™ I felt it had met my needs and greatly exceeded my expectations. Thank you, Jonathan and Anastasia.

Jonathan,
Just wanted to drop a quick line to thank you for one of the most wonderful weeks I’ve had in a long, long time. Not only did I learn a ton, but I feel PetMassage™ is one of my truths. It’s a path I will follow. Your approach to massage for dogs is insightful, intuitive, sensitive, compassionate, yet very powerful… and all with a light, loving touch. You have truly touched my soul and opened up a path that I’m destined to follow. Thank you for making such a powerful difference in my life…and as a result a powerful difference to the many dogs that I will touch.
Love and Light

I really enjoyed the hands-on work, learning the massage skills, and seeing how they can make a positive difference in the life of the dog.

As a teacher & computer trainer for twenty years, I’m pretty much a student with high expectations of an instructor. Jonathan knows his topics really well and he has a kind and gentle way of offering knowledge as fast as we can soak it up! Thank you for being a loving teacher to your students. I sure learned a lot and enjoyed every day.

I loved how this workshop created an awareness on such a spiritual and energetic level. I feel like this course will change the way that I approach bodywork with humans. I plan on approaching this work with people and animals in a much more spiritual and energetic way. Thank you so much for everything you both have done! The awareness and new levels of understanding I have about animals and relationships with them, has increased more than I ever imagined! This was truly an experience of a lifetime. Thank you!

I have learned so much in the last 5 days, both about myself and about the connection we have with dogs.  It is a profound thing and I am blessed to have learned from the animal massage pioneers.

The things learned in this class can’t be obtained through on-line or by reading.  The hands-on teaching and the discussions were very enlightening on both a personal level and a professional level.

Dear Jonathan and Anastasia: I wanted to send you my heartfelt and spirit felt thanks for a wonderful, life changing workshop!! It has inspired me to a whole other level. I cannot thank you enough! I can only liken it to finding the missing piece in the “puzzle” that is my life, my purpose. I am looking forward to seeing you both in September, for the PetMassage™ Advanced Workshop.

Thank you so very much for creating and offering PetMassage training. The drIve back to Pittsburgh allowed for “quiet” time to reflect on the course context and honestly, I cannot thank you enough!

This has enriched my life not only because of my deep passion for animals and desire to learn the art and science of animal massage, but it was your energy work that has opened up a whole new dimension for which I’ve had very limited exposure. I can see that allowing for flexibility during the course training that I would not have been part of the systemic conversions relating to energy work and I see how necessary it is in my everyday life and most definitely to maximize animal massage!

Then to top it off, I now have you as a mentor! I have tremendous respect for your knowledge and for the business that you both have built, plus I like to learn and grow personally and professionally. I am looking forward to a long relationship.

I did not expect such a strong emotional connection. Major energy shift while working with the positional release. Very knowledgeable, good communicator, clear confident speaker. Books, manual, and videos are very informative and easy to follow.
