SBI-Tampa – Massage Therapy Program “Goes to the Dogs”

February 4, 2014 SBI-Tampa, General 0 Comments

Sanford Brown-Tampa – Massage Therapy Program Goes to the DogsJulie Ashlock, CPT, LMT and 2009 graduate of Sanford-Brown Institute Tampa’s Massage Therapy program, returned to campus Tuesday, January 28th as a guest speaker to SBI Tampa massage students to talk about her massage practice, which includes canine massage.

Massage therapists who specialize in this special population use their knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and massage techniques to improve an animal’s physical wellbeing. As with human clients, the therapist utilizes hands-on massage techniques to relax muscles, stimulate circulation, and enhance range of motion in their four legged clients. Massage therapists develop and implement treatment plans based on the individual animal’s needs, and typically work in conjunction with veterinarians as part of an overall treatment plan.

Ms. Ashlock’s lecture and demonstration befitted Jennifer Wasylyna’s beloved dog Moses – a Harlequin Great Dane, who was more than happy to receive some therapeutic touch from Julie! Ms. Waslyna is the Lead Instructor and National Program Chair for the Massage Therapy program.
