RATES – We are primarily a cold hard cash-based practice due to recent cyber fraud. The practice never received a refund or any closure. Therefore, cash rather than Venmo, Zelle, Cards, etc is greatly appreciated.
Phone Consults – $45.00 – Great for out-of-area clients looking for nutritional or at-home therapy tool guidance, calls are 20 minutes.
Animal Massage – $95 – per therapy session ( $85 Cash.) This payment includes any & all modalities, such as PBM (cold laser or LED), Reiki, acupressure, florals, and aromatherapy, used in the session. This is important to note as typically at the veterinary clinic, folks pay $75+ for cold laser (PBM) and additionally for any other modalities such as acupuncture. Each session is tailored to the individual dog (or cat). A session is typically between 30-45 minutes with the first session usually taking a bit longer.
Fur kids with chronic conditions typically see me on a twice-weekly or once-weekly basis, until they are at a point of improved stability. FYI, Most dogs require 3-4 weekly sessions to begin seeing progress.

To avoid being charged for your session, please provide at least 48 hours’ notice of cancellation.

See My Training!
Member of IAAMB/ACWT – Certified Animal Massage Therapist trained in the following Modalities:

Bodywork here is such a great value! With many veterinary offices charging $85.00+ for a few minutes of laser along with assessment charges and additional charges per therapy, PureTemple therapy sessions provide quality hands-on time with the animal, including various massage & therapeutic modalities including vibration and light therapy, tailored to your fur child that really makes a healing difference in your pet.
Healing Expectations – Your pup will most likely need a few weekly (or twice weekly) sessions, not just one appointment. Therapy is not a magic pill. If you have ever recovered from an injury, that required chiropractic work, acupuncture, massage, or physical therapy, how long did it take for you to begin to feel and function better? In most cases, just like with any therapy you may have gone through yourself, results are individual, cumulative over time, and require you to adhere to the treatment plan suggested. Although this does happen, it is rare to have a situation where one session results in a 100% cure. Many people find me after their pet has been in pain and imbalance a long time and may have also gone to other places and not found relief. I understand the time, expense, and frustration involved in this but ask that you come prepared to allow this therapy to work. It is common for me to see patients twice a week, or weekly for several sessions (typically 4-5 treatments) to get to a place of healing, improvement, and stability that we can then build on with a maintenance plan.
Better Doesn’t Mean Stop Treatment! I have folks who bring their dog once and already the spine is no longer as roached, they feel better so the dog begins playing again with toys or is otherwise showing joy. The pet parent can sometimes interpret this as ‘Oh, great, we are done with therapy!’ They speak in their language and are telling you “thank you!” They DO feel much better but this doesn’t mean they are 100% and ready to stop treatments. Please adhere to the treatment plan and derive full benefits for you and your pup! ♥ Whether the imbalance is sudden (acute) or chronic conditions, those situations where the dog has been limping, stutter walking, moving with a hunched or roached spine, or what have you for months or even years, allow time for the treatments to create a space for wellness. Older dogs and those with arthritis, hip dysplasia, spinal trauma, or other longer-term complaints may require weekly or bi-weekly therapy for some time to regain mobility before migrating to a maintenance plan and there are elders that see me regularly and need that tune-up to keep them going! Obviously, anything broken, or torn most likely requires surgery. So far, every individual who’s followed the treatment plan provided has seen great improvements in their beastie & is off all pain medication but we must honor each animal as an individual, consider the condition and then honor the healing process. I wish everyone the healing they wish for but also the grace and patience to receive it.

Trained in Functional Medicine through Hippocrates Health Institute, and certified in animal massage & nutrition through Holistic Animal Studies, we provide canine therapy, nutritional/supplement guidance & offer wellness products & tools to empower people & their fur kids.

9 thoughts on “Canine Massage Therapy & Holistics”
I found your company on Google after my husband and I were talking about doggy massages. We have a 5 year old male golden retriever named Yeti and in August 2020 he was diagnosed with stage 3 soft tissue sarcoma in his front left shoulder. We ended up amputating his poor leg (I think it was much harder on us than it was on him) but it was in hopes to save his life.
They gave him 9-12 months to live since it was aggressive and it seemingly came out of nowhere, but now it’s been 13 months post-op and he’s doing so great! He has successfully handled welcoming another baby to the family in February, and a move to a new house in April (I was so worried about all of these transitions as I read they can induce stress).
Anyway. We just can’t help but think he’s got to be so sore sometimes, walking and hopping on 3 legs regularly…. I try and rub his arm and shoulder in the evenings on my own. I’m sure you could help him but I wanted to see what you recommend first, or if you even service tripawds in the first place.
I appreciate your help Suzanne, and I’m so glad I found you and this line of work actually exists! 🙂
Thank you Lauren, it was nice connecting with you earlier. For the purposes of aiding anyone here with tripaws, elderly, spinal/neurological trauma, pre and post sporting events, or preventative monthly or quarterly maintenance, massage, ANMR, Vibration Therapy, acupressure, Reiki, PEMF, and the host of modalities I throw into my daily practice, I never tire of the paraplegics who walk again, the elders who move with greater ease, brighter eyes and outlook! My passion, as a pet parent, is coaching pet parents on at-home therapy tools that they can use to speed healing and recovery at home in between professional sessions, as well as lifestyle detox which gets into holistic food and supplement options. I look forward to helping your baby feel and function better when I see him! ♥
Thank you, Bryan, I hope your pup is feeling and functioning better or if you bought something online for your own wellness, that you find it supportive! We are very transparent in what we do here at PureTemple Lifestyle Detox. ♥
When you work with a lot of canines, and stressed pet parents, this helps! ♥ I try to bring calm energy into my practice, both the local environment as well as the page you shopped. Let me know if you have any product questions. Happy to help as we engage and coach on Lifestyle Detox!
I am both client/patient-driven as I work to detox the lifestyle of pets and their people. Let me know how I can help you further. ♥
Thank you, it has been a very long vision, indeed, helping people and pets with their lifestyle detox, something many have never considered. It has been a blessing helping people and pets feel and function better! Let me know how we can help you! ♥
Vets may be great but incorporating Pure Temple Holistic & PurePet Canine Massage Therapy is so much better! It is imperative we as pet owners utilize, support, and request vets to implement holistic methods. It took an unfortunate injury with my fur baby to seek holistic aid and luckily, I located Suzanne. She is beyond great! Her care and knowledge, the soothing environment, and the countless insight provided during our sessions not only aid your pet towards a more effective recovery but help the pet owner understand; reducing stress. My fur baby suffered from a broken femur and had a FHO procedure. Before Suzanne, my puppy’s paw and leg usage, stability, and confidence were low. As our session continued, my puppy showed improvements and made strides; needless to say, my puppy’s confidence is normal and she is not missing a beat. I truly wish I would have known of Pure Temple before my puppy’s procedure. It would have improved her outcome from the vet’s surgery. Suzanne’s work is truly amazing and she genuinely cares about your pet and their journey. Suzanne has been a huge help. My doggie is a German Shepherd and she loves Suzanne! I mean it’s her and Suzanne’s time when we arrive and my fur baby will definitely make it known. We will continue to utilize services. I highly recommend her services; so worth it!
Hi LonNita, I so appreciate your comments, they help other pet parents see the value in these modalities.♥ Hugs to Qutie Joy!
