“As a veterinarian who does chiropractic and acupuncture work, it is very important for me to have a massage therapist who I can refer my patients to. Heather Sanders is an excellent resource for me. Her bodywork gives them pain relief and increased mobility and helps my patients hold their chiropractic adjustments as well. I feel very fortunate to have Heather on the health care team for many of the dogs in my practice and highly recommend her as a skilled massage therapist and acupressure practitioner.”

Kari De Leeuw DVM, VSMT, CVA

“I feel that Heather's comprehensive approach including massage, acupressure, and nutrition can be of benefit to many patients. Those that are dealing with degenerative or chronic arthritic problems, back issues, or leg injuries can especially benefit from her services.”

Stan Goldfarb, DVM

“Having worked in the veterinary chiropractic field for the last eight years I am often asked about both the efficacy of other therapeutic modalities and for recommendations to trusted practitioners. I have never hesitated to heartily recommend Heather Sanders for veterinary acupressure work. Her expertise in her field is unsurpassed and her professionalism and willingness to collaborate on cases is exemplary. I trust her implicitly and know that all animals lucky enough to be treated by Heather will experience reduced stress and improved well being.”
