Animal Massage Schools - Australia

In the past few months, I have heard from many readers from all around the world who are wondering if there are any animal massage schools close to where they live. And since my goal is to make Animal Massage Guide the most complete source on the Internet for anyone interested in learning and practicing animal massage, I am expanding my list of schools to include other parts of the world as well, starting with Australia.

As you can see, these are not “just” massage therapy schools, they include many other alternative therapies as well. If you know of a school in Oceania you think should be on this list, just let me know.
