4 Paws Bodytalk

Animals have an innate sense and intuition for dis-harmony and dis-ease. They understand the benefits of touch on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels. Combined with healing intention, touch becomes a mechanism for balancing and eliminating stress and tensions that cause metabolic interference and eventually illness. Kuma, our Shiba Inu, keeps a strict schedule of "pet times", demanding regular massage every morning and night. The horses demand physical connection to gain trust and we can regularly see them in mutual "grooming massage" with each other in the paddocks. Bear uses cuddles to calm tensions and relieve imbalances in people he meets. Thus their world becomes quiet and relaxed and their health reflects this language of connection.

4 Paws Bodytalk Acupressure, AcuChi, & Auriculotherapy focuses on using the balancing of the Elements and the Chakras to release disharmonies and increase the body systems for health. The touch given in compassion and regard allows for increased trust and a deeper relationship mutually benefitting the giver and the receiver. Studying this series of courses, not only allows for Certification in 4 Paws, but creates personal growth and development of self.

The courses are offered Combined Distance and require onsite hands on training with our facilitators for certification. Simply order the CoursePac for the Online Study and when you are ready to come join us for the hands on, you can join a regularly scheduled session or book a Personal Training Retreat (Add $375 for accommodations). Hands on training sessions are offered in July and August for Equine; January and February for Small Animal.
