Learn more about pet massage through D'Anne, SELREC

Licensed massotherapist Sherrie D'Anne, who taught the pet massage course at Lakeland's Free College Day, has scheduled another learning opportunity.

A two-part pet massage class through the South Euclid-Lyndhurst Recreation Department will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. the following Wednesdays: April 29 and May 13.

D'Anne said the first session is a lecture, no pets permitted, while the second session is only for attendees of the first session and welcomes pet- and people-friendly pets with current vaccinations and/or titres.

Cost per session is $24 for residents of South Euclid, Lyndhurst and University Heights, and $29 for non-residents. Space is limited.

SELREC's online brochure describes the sessions as follows:
Pet Massage I
Learn the basic skills necessary to give your pet a massage that will not only relax him/her but can relieve pain and control behavior problems. It can also help with arthritis, hip dysplasia and many other health challenges. Bring a notebook but NO PETS to this class. This class is for beginners and therapists alike and will include a certificate of completion with attendance to both Pet Massage I and II. #5072-0 Brush High School D103.

Pet Massage II
Bring your dog or people friendly pet on a leash or in a carrier and a blanket or pad for you and your pet to be more comfortable on the floor. We’ll expand on your knowledge with work in gait analysis, body language, myofacial release, pressure point therapy and more. Certificate of completion for beginners and therapist alike will be issued for completion of both Pet Massage I & II. #5082-0 SE-L Board of Ed Bldg. Gym.
