Our Real Teachers

Meet Josh! Josh was found in a dumpster with a broken back due to blunt force trauma and benefits greatly from massage therapy.  Heis approximately 6 months old, has hindlimb paralysis and is very lucky to be fostered by CSCM graduate,  Erin Kowalski .  Erin works on Josh up to 3 times a day to help with nerve stimulation, alleviation of the compensatory muscles, and to work on range of motion of his pelvic limbs. 

Educating Future Veterinarians

The Chicago School of Canine Massage's very own Dr. Megan Ridley and lead instructor Denise Theobald took a trip to the University of Illinois' College of Veterinary Medicine last week to talk to the students!  Manual therapies, low-stress handling, and the role of massage and rehabilitation in the veterinary community were discussed.




Graduate Corner 

Meet CSCM's new Business and Education Manager, Jaclyn Cecere!   Jaclyn enrolled in the Chicago School of Canine Massage 300-hour Career Training program and graduated in May 2014.  Since then she has become attuned to the first level of Reiki, completed levels 1 & 2 of Flowtrition with Dr. Jonah Yakel, and become certified in Pet CPR and First Aid.   Jaclyn continues to seek out ways to further her education related to massage, other alternative modalities and animal behavior.  It is Jaclyn's goal to improve the quality of life for as many animals as possible.
