PetMassage Foundation Level Workshop - Refresher


Welcome back!

The Refresher is an opportunity to take just the hands-on module of the workshop a second time at a reduced fee. There are no home study courses, no required research assignments and no post workshop session documentations.

PetMassage™ evolves. The content that was taught 15, 10, 5 and even 3 years ago is substantially different from what is taught now. The PetMassage Foundation Refresher Workshop is 5 days and now includes both the Dog Handling and Body Mechanics mini-workshops.

Remember the excitement, the “aha” revelations, the community!

Foundation Level Program - Refresher Testimonials 

It was amazing to be able to return to the foundation class as a refresher student to hear everything a second time.  Having the ability to work with the pioneers in our field and gain a better grasp of the core skills needed. It was also great to study side by side with a different group of people.  Students asking different questions, students with different skill sets. Creating a whole new set of relationships.

As a current business owner in a pet related field, mother, wife, and pet owner who had attended the Foundation Workshop just 2 months ago.  I can’t recommend enough taking the refresher course shortly after you take the Foundation class or within your years of practice. In the 5 short days we are able to spend time with pioneers in this field, learning all we can, working next to, and reading every book we can get our hands on, there will always be something we miss.  There will always be new things to learn. Having the ability to retake a workshop at a lesser cost gave me the opportunity to make sure I don’t have to miss any piece of the workshop or information and my core foundation skills are strong. Because we are given this wonderful gift I intend to visit Jonathan and Anastasia as often as I can to learn from them what they are willing to teach.

United States

I learned so much at this workshop. This was a refresher course for me and it met all my expectations. I now feel comfortable to start my own massage business and grow.

I know I will always have the support needed from PetMassage
They are very friendly and welcoming.
