Meet the incredible team of certified animal bodyworkers and veterinarians that work together to naturally improve the health of your horse or dog through massage, acupressure, acupuncture, and more.
Sports Massage, Acupressure, and Aromatherapy
Heather Wallace is a Certified Equine Sports Massage Therapist (ESMT), Certified Canine Massage Therapist (CCMT), and Aromatherapist.
Heather has always had a special bond with animals of all kinds. Because of this, she has a keen sense for what each animal needs and communicates, especially the more sensitive horses and dogs. Whether you are looking to reduce anxiety, build trust, or relieve pain, Heather will do everything she can to help your animal.
Dogs are seen in her Red Bank office unless they are unable to leave the home due to anxiety or mobility issues. Horses, llamas, alpacas, and goats are seen at the barn, and Heather will travel throughout Central New Jersey for appointments. Please contact her to see when she will be in your area.
Heather is the proud mom of two large rescue mutts, and a pony named Ferrous. She has ridden hunters, pleasure, trail, and will be training for endurance to participate in the 2021 Gobi Desert Cup. In addition to animal massage therapy, Heather is also a bestselling and award-winning author, and successful equestrian blogger and photographer known as The Timid Rider.
Book your horse or dog an appointment for sports massage, acupressure, and aromatherapy with Heather today.
