ABOUT MARSHA CONVERSE/ CMT
Animals played an important role in my life growing up in San Francisco, especially dogs and cats. I grew up as an advocate and protector of animals and realized early on I had a talent for calming down a stressed dog or cat and for comprehending what they chose to tell me. Last year while volunteering at OAS I found myself wanting to give to dogs in an even more purposeful way which started me on my path to dog massage. While donating dog massage services at the Fire Evacuation Center during the Cold Springs Fire in nederland Colorado this year and last year at the Lake County fire, I witnessed how stressed our companions could become. As devoted as a guardian may be, a trained canine massage practitioner may pick up on nuances or missed communications that the owner has not.
I am a graduate of Rocky Mountain School of Animal Acupressure and Massage in Elizabeth Colorado and certified massage practioner. I am continuing my education with studies of essential oils for dogs, and Reiki (energy work). My continuing education also includes obtaining certification as a Canine CPR Instructor which will be added to GK9K services page late in 2016/early 2017.
I believe in a balanced approach to animal health care including love, good nutrition, exercise, training and preventative maintenance.
