Testimonials from Private Session Clients:
Jonathan worked on Adalmar, a 3 year old Weim who has a rebuilt pelvis, rod down his right leg and both hips plated from an accident when he was 7 months old.
I felt bad because when Adalmar came in, it was clear it was one of his rough days – his right rear leg was shaking and body weight shifted forward.
This has always indicated a need to get to the chiropractor immediately – he has had this problem more than once. Jonathan’s demeanor while working on Adalmar filled the room with a joyful peace. He called it “magical” when he was done.
Well, Adalmar went to his vet the next day and his vet, a chiropractor, said the problem had been “hyperspastic iiopsoas muscles bilaterally in memory (loin)”.He then said, “No adjustment necessary. Whatever he (Jonathan) did fixed it.” Then he wanted to hear all about our training!
I was introduced to Jonathan and his methods years ago, but never had the need to use them until one day when my 4# Pomeranian Fiona had a leg injury. She went to the vet and nothing was broken, but she still was not using it. After multiple visits to the vet, the vet was going to give it another month of recovery time. If she didn’t use it they were going to have to amputate the leg. I just couldn’t do it. I checked around for some other alternative that I could do her. I remembered Jonathan and sent him an email to see if he could help. He called me back and we talked a little bit. He said that he wasn’t sure how she would take the treatment but it he would love to meet her and see what results we would get. At the first appointment, I wanted to cry with what I saw. She was so intent on what he was doing it was amazing. She was leaning into his fingers to get the most out of his touch. She communicated with him using her body to tell him where to go next. Before the lesson, she wasn’t putting her foot down. After the lesson, she would put it down about every 7-8 step. Jonathan taught me a few things to do every day with her to continue the therapy at home. After our second lesson, she was using it about every 3-4 steps. We still have more therapy to do, but it looks so promising. She is using the leg intermittingly, but it looks promising that she will recover from the injury. I would recommend Jonathan and PetMassage to anyone who asks me. He has a way about him that portrays calmness and positive energy to your dog. I would definitely go to PetMassage with your pet if you need some help.
