Sue Redfield, Zen Tails
Becoming a Certified Canine Massage Therapist has given owner/operator Sue Redfield an opportunity to enhance a lifelong passion for dogs and their wellbeing. Sue received her canine massage training and certification from Abundant Life Massage in Sarasota, FL. She has a BS in education, is certified in dog first aid and CPR through the Red Cross, is a Level 4 sHealing Touch for Animals® Practitioner and is certified in Animals & Oils through Dr. Melissa Shelton.
As a Canine Massage Therapist, Sue is trained to perform soft tissue manipulation on dogs, soreness, and muscle spasm and to apply massage techniques to aid in relaxation and healing. Sue is not a veterinary doctor or technician and cannot diagnose, prescribe, or give medical advice. Issues that she is not trained to address will be referred to your veterinarian.
Petting your dog is different than massage. Massage is a form of therapeutic touch using specific massage techniques, movements, and pressures for specific results. The treatment is done with intention and focus for the wellbeing of the dog.
I look forward to working with you and your canine companion in striving to meet your massage and energy healing goals.

"Sue did her rescue massages at Humane Society of Lakewood Ranch. I was able to observe her work. Sue was very responsive to the dogs' reactions using the floor when dogs exhibited fear or resistance to the table or a certain type of stimulation. She was observant and respectful of the dogs' comfort, as she focused on different body areas when dogs demonstrated discomfort from arthritis, etc. Sue is very comfortable dealing with all types of dog temperaments in a shelter setting. The dogs were much less hyper following a massage session." Rhys Miller, Fairy Tail Endings
