“I wanted to tell you how amazing it was to me to see Maggie enjoying the water so much. She slept all night without waking up panting (as she’s been doing). Kathy was wonderful and I’d like to make an appointment with her for next week if possible.”

"We first met Kathy when we moved to Henderson in 2009. I was looking for a massage therapist for my girl Jordan, a GSD, and was so fortunate to have someone recommend Kathy. From day one she became an essential part of our lives. Kathy began working with Jordan in the pool in 2015. It was wonderful to watch them together and to see the improvement in Jordan’s emotional and physical state of being after each session. I am thankful for Kathy every day. Darlene Gerson
"My 13 yr old GSP had a bad injury that left his hind legs going out. He was extremely weak and shaky in that area and would fall quite a bit. Since Kathy has been massaging him weekly he doesn't fall and he's overall happier and in less pain. I'm thankful for these appointments because I really didn't know what to do."
“…. Kathy came to our home 2-3 times per year for several years to walk our dogs Winnie and B.D. when I was away. "The girls" loved her and really looked forward to her visits. Kathy didn't just walk the dogs, she loved them. She played with them before and after they walked which they enjoyed immensely. It was always a treat for me to get home and find them playing together as "the girls" were so happy to receive Kathy's love and attention.”
Woof! My name is Eddy, and I am a new client at Canine Bodywork and Aquatics. I am a 6 1/2 year old Border Collie. A nice lady there named Kathy spoke with my mum about the arthritis in my left hip. Kathy said that she could help me feel better while having fun at the same time. I like to have fun! So my mum took me to Henderson to Kathy's special pool, to get some good water therapy. I think that Kathy is going to be a great new friend for me. Even though I had never been in or near a swimming pool before, Kathy made me feel comfortable in the water on my very first day. She held me in her arms and talked to me while we just floated around, weightless. It was very relaxing. Then, she taught me how easy it is to swim (she made sure I had a life jacket on, though, so I wouldn't sink LOL!) Mummy gave me treats every time I swam across the pool to her. I can really move in the water! Mummy says that Canine Bodywork and Aquatics is a badly needed service for animals in Southern Nevada, and she is so glad she found a business that provides such a great service. I agree! The day after my first session, I had more ease of movement in my hip and my hamstring muscle. And I'm less grumpy because I'm in less pain! Woof!
“Kathy took the time to allow Yukari to relax in the water before moving through the water. Calming voice and I liked the way she asked her to safely swim... wonderful the time she took to massage Yukari, very relaxing”

“I am the happy steward of two beautiful Labrador retrievers named Bodhi and Holly. They are brother & sister, 10 ½ years old, and I was present at their birth so we have been together all their lives. After many good years of chasing balls, rabbits, coyotes and each other, a diet of organic foods and very good overall health, Bodhi and Holly are experiencing signs of arthritis, joint dysplasia and simply getting into their senior years. Kathy has been working with Bodhi and Holly for months now and their sessions have made such a difference in their movement. They are sooo happy to see her and have fallen into a rhythm of taking turns for their bodywork that is a beautiful thing to observe. Kathy’s gentle, knowing touch has helped them feel so much more comfortable in their bodies that they are relaxed and more playful for the rest of the day. The information she shares with me on her findings each session has helped me make choices on their range of activity. Besides good food, time in the park with their friends and love, Kathy’s bodywork is the best thing to happen to them…. And they let her know with kisses on her cheek after each treatment.”
