We love to receive questions from our readers, and do get a lot of them on a wide variety of subjects. And
since I think others can benefit from our answers as well, we will post select Q&As here every now and then, so that everyone can learn from them.
If you have a question you [...]

As usual, if you know of an event that belongs on this list, please contact [...]

Since many of us don’t live close to areas where the complementary animal health classes we want to take are taught, I thought I’d put together a list of online training classes, webinars, teleclasses, correspondence courses, distance learning programs, etc. – all the different ways you can study from home.
This list is [...]
Happy fall everyone! I hope you had a fantastic summer with lots of fun stuff going on. I finally got to go home to Sweden to see friends and family – it had been 3 years since the last visit, so that was a big treat. And while I was there, I took the chance [...]
After what has been one of the weather-wise best winters ever in my opinion (no snow, only a few days below freezing), it’s starting to feel like spring. Every morning, the birds are singing outside my window, and there is a glimmer of daylight left when I leave work in the evening. It really does [...]
It’s been a while since we featured a school here on AMG, but today, we have an interview with Lola Michelin, founder and Director of Education of The Northwest School of Animal Massage (NWSAM), located in Vashon, WA.
The Northwest School of Animal Massage was founded in 2001 in response to the growing demand for approved [...]
Summer is here and it’s finally feeling like it in Massachusetts. After a cold and rainy June, we’re now enjoying sunshine and 90+ temperatures (at least I’m enjoying it – I’ll take that any day over snow!). There are plenty of classes and workshops in August and September, although noticeably fewer than earlier in the [...]
I have added quite a few more schools, workshops and classes to the animal massage school lists. This is a short synopsis of the additions – more information is on the list for each country.
I have also updated the visiting classes and workshops for 2011 on each list, however, not all practitioners have finalized their [...]
I have recently added a whole bunch of new schools to the various school lists, and wanted to highlight them here in a separate post (they have a “New” tag next to them on the lists so they’re easy to find).
I also wanted to mention a new feature here on AMG, which I added a [...]
I got an email from a reader who is trying to decide on which animal massage school to attend. It is a very difficult choice to make, and we decided to post her question and my answer, hoping it would help others who are undecided as well.
Also, if you have attended a massage school and [...]

I’ve just added even more schools to some of the lists as well as a few events to the Events & Workshops in Feb – March 2010.
It seems that Tierheilpraktiker (“animal healing practitioner”) training is very popular in Germany. The training includes subjects such as homeopathy, physiotherapy, animal psychology, Bach flowers, leech therapy (!), [...]
I have received quite a few questions about animal massage schools in South Africa, and here are the alternative animal health schools, classes and workshops I’ve managed to find so far (in alphabetical order).
As always, I will keep adding to the list when I find more, and as usual, please let me know if you [...]
I’ve been doing a little bit of holiday cleaning here at AMG, and have updated and added a bunch of new schools to the different lists. The UK list in particular has been totally revamped with lots of new additions, and I have also divided all the schools there into England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and [...]
Going back and forth between websites and trying to compare schools and programs can be both time consuming and confusing. To save you all a little bit of time, I’ve put together a short comparison of the more comprehensive canine massage programs available in the US (in order by state). Note that most of these [...]
I have not been able to find a whole lot of holistic animal health schools in New Zealand, and none that focus solely on animal massage, but here are the alternative animal health schools, workshop and classes I have found so far (in alphabetical order).
I will keep adding to it as I come across more, [...]

They have also written several manuals [...]
After hearing from many readers looking for massage schools in mainland Europe, I put together this list of alternative and complementary animal health schools, courses and workshops. (For schools in the UK and Northern Ireland, click link).
I realize this is far from complete (partly because there are many European languages I don’t speak or understand, [...]
We are starting a new series here at Animal Massage Guide – Featured Schools. I have invited several schools to participate, and first out is my own alma mater, Bancroft School of Massage in Worcester, MA.
I was in one of the first classes to graduate from the small animal massage certification program, and while these [...]

Many of the practitioners on the list also travel to other countries to teach, and there are links to those countries’ lists from each practitioner. You will find [...]
